You are not alone.Thousands of bloggers struggle to keep up with posting fresh content, generating blog traffic and remaining relevant on Pinterest, a social site which currently hosts over 200 million active users monthly.However, with these Pinterest tools, your work is about to get so much easier.
TOP PINTEREST TOOLS TO DRIVE TRAFFIC TO A BLOG
Tailwind is undoubtedly my favorite Pinterest tool. The recent shutdown of BoardBooster, a fantastic automation tool which was dear to me (and several bloggers and Pinners) has accelerated Tailwind’s popularity among the Pinterest community.
Here are some of its outstanding features:
Tailwind lets you automate the publishing of new pins to your individual or group boards. Once you upload images from your computer, your website (or any other site) or your Instagram page, proceed to pick the date, time and board to pin and Tailwind will do the rest.
In 10 minutes, you can run a whole week’s campaign (or even more) and watch the heavy traffic flow to your blog.
In its attempt to fill the gap created by BoardBooster’s exit, Tailwind is rolling out a SmartLoop feature. Looping simply means that Tailwind will shuffle your pins so that old pins at the bottom of a board can rise to the top as fresh content.
Looping lets you keep your followers engaged with fresh content without having to lift a finger. Who wouldn’t want that?
Tailwind analytics help you track the performance of your campaigns and advises you on the best times to schedule your pins. You can now begin to run smart and informed campaigns without having to guess when your audience is online or the kind of content they love.
Tribes are communities of pinners, which are only available on Tailwind, where people can publish pins. Although pretty similar to group boards, tribes require members to repin each other’s content. In fact, dormant members can be kicked out without warning.
Ultimately, your pins are guaranteed free publicity.
Tailwind’s interface is extremely easy-to-navigate and they even offer video tutorials to help you learn how to master the platform.
Have you ever browsed through Pinterest and wondered how Pinners develop such high-quality images? Are you worried that you might not match up to that quality?
Canva is the solution you seek. Its amazing features will transform you from a blogger to an exemplary graphic designer.
This tool offers you millions of free photographs, illustrations, vectors, icons and shapes to help you create high-quality pins. Alternatively, you can utilize your personal library of stock photos.You are also treated to amazing photo filters and hundreds of fonts.
If your designing skills are not that good, you need to wipe that worried look off your face because Canva has lots of design tutorials to fast-track your ability to create outstanding designs for your Pinterest audience.
Group boards are the easiest way to explode your traffic. However, it can be difficult to find group boards which are relevant to your work.
Pingroupie helps you maximize your traffic by making it easy to find group boards. You can refine your search to the specific category, title, description, the number of pins, collaborators (pinners), followers (group members) of the group board you would like.
The best Pingroupie feature is the statistical data it provides. You want to join a group board with a higher number of followers – it translates to higher traffic.
The ratio of pins to collaborators also helps you to judge whether the owner has limited the number of pins per day. If you can discover the perfect timing, a group which limits posting guarantees that your pins will get higher visibility.
Pingroupie also provides you with the name of the group owner so that you can easily find them and request for an invite to the group board.
Usually, the group owner appears as the first profile featured on the board’s homepage. Some groups include the owner’s contact in the description so that you can easily email them to join the group.
Your social media following communicates your authority in your niche or industry. People are more likely to judge the credibility of your content based on your popularity.
However, growing a large list of Pinterest followers can be difficult when you’re starting out. Pinfollow makes it easier by letting you unfollow those who don’t follow back. By rooting out the less interested people, you can cultivate and grow your list of loyal followers.You’ll soon be leveraging the power of your Pinterest following to grow your blog or sell your products/ services.
Pinterest is one of the best social media sites to explode your blog traffic. However, you don’t need to wear yourself out trying to juggle between your blog and your social sharing.
