Best Pinterest Scheduler – Why I use Viraltag
I can sometimes get a little fanatical about my research, but if you’ve ever taken a year subscription to the wrong program then you probably get me.
When I first started looking for a scheduler for my social media I was surprised to find that my options were fairly limited. Yes I know there are plenty of tools for scheduling to Facebook, Google+ and Twitter and almost as many for LinkedIn and Tumbler (people are still using Tumbler apparently…)
With the death of Google+, yes it’s official Google+ is dead, it’s hard not to ask which social media platform is the safest bet for investing hours, days and yes eventually years of your time in. You can try and cover them all extensively but unless you have a team, you’ll quickly find that you have no time left for creating content. If you’re here it’s probably because like me, you’ve realized the tremendous potential hidden in Pinterest.
That is where I ran into problems. There are only a few tools available for scheduling to Pinterest and not all of them work that well, with some of them being simply too expensive for someone just starting out. Also very few of them are Pinterest approved. Why is that important?
Pinterest is very concerned with maintaining their brand integrity. They want Pinterest users to have the best possible experience and that includes protecting users from spam. In the past they have blocked or marked as spam, accounts that use scheduling tools that are not Pinterest approved.
As of 26th September 2018, Viraltag is an official Pinterest Marketing Partner (PMP). This means that Pinterest have vetted Viraltag for Technical proficiency as well as expertise. In short: Viraltag is Pinterest approved. They also get the inside scoop on new developments which they can then implement faster for the benefit of their users.
Viraltag and Bulk Scheduling
Viraltag has a very clean looking interface. They have extensive video tutorials on all the features and a very responsive support team. I’ve had numerous questions which I asked via email as well as the live chat on the platform and I got quick responses to all my questions.
I don’t like spending days and weeks figuring things out for myself, so because I only had 14 days (the free trial period) to make up my mind, I wanted to get started right away.
My biggest question was how to do bulk scheduling.
The more time you save on managing your Pinterest account, the more time you have for creating great content. I can’t imagine a better way to save time than bulk scheduling. What makes Viraltag’s bulk scheduling unique is that I can work on a number of Pins at the same time or I can bulk schedule 50+ pins to the same board with the same description and hashtags.
Now here is where the real magic happens. Ever been frustrated by the fact that images are not the right size and shape? We all know that Pinterest favors long pins and these days even square ones like Instagram, but they don’t really like landscape pins that much. So now what? Well you can take pins and resize them with other apps or you can post them as is. Not anymore.
Viraltag and Bulk Editing
Viraltag lets you edit and enhance images right from the bulk scheduler! Is that awesome or what?
And with a few button clicks you can go from here…
As if that wasn’t enough, Viraltag really impressed me when it came to the control I had over my schedule. That’s what a scheduling tool is supposed to be about after all – control. I want to be able to decide exactly when a post is going to be scheduled and exactly how much time there will be in between this post and the next one. With Viraltag I can now do that with hardly any effort.
Viraltag and Canva Integration
I didn’t need much more convincing than this, but the guys and girls from Viraltag weren’t finished yet. How would you like to have Canva integrated right into the app so you can easily create and schedule your own new content?
