Success on Pinterest starts with a solid strategy backed up with eye-catching and useful Pins, but there are also a handful of tools available to help entrepreneurs “up their game” on this vibrant social media channel. Here are two new ones:
BoardBooster: BoardBooster is a Pinterest Scheduler similar to Hootsuite where users can schedule Pins. This tool not only lets users know the average re-pins and likes per board, but it offers up the bonus of a Board Doctor; an extra tool that tests all pins on your Pinterest boards, identifies nine common problems like broken links and content duplication, and helps fix them. There’s a free trial, and BoardBooster runs anywhere from $5.00 per month up to $50.00, depending on the number of pins per month.
Pingroupie: Looking for an easy way to find group boards to join? PinGroupie is a directory of Pinterest group boards where users can search for group boards by keyword. Once a board is located, PinGroupie shows in a glance how many contributors, followers, pins, and re-pins are on each board. Group boards are open to contributors. Pinning via a group board is an extremely effective way to increase reach, get more exposure for your pins, and attract new followers. PinGroupie is a free tool.
