A fool proof way to track your pins and expand your reach on Pinterest!

Believe it or not, there is a way to track your pins on Pinterest without using Tailwind or any other type of Pinterest scheduler.

If you are newer to the Pinterest platform or even a long-time Tailwind user, you may be interested to know that the Tailwind scheduler has been a BIG reason many accounts have been flagged as spam on Pinterest.

See the smartloop feature re-pins your popular pins for you. And if you don’t know by now, that is a HUGE no-no. (Re-pinning the same image to more than one board.) Pinterest themselves have even said NOT to do that anymore. It’s an EXTREMELY outdated practice. Sadly many users are still doing this, even some Pinterest VA’s. It could be a significant reason why your overall reach is so low.

The best practice now is to create a fresh new pin image, upload it to the most relevant board and LEAVE IT ALONE. Multiple re-pins of the same image (from your personal account) will set off a spam filter FAST. And it’s tough to recover from that.

You can use the same URL multiple times, as long as the pin image is fresh.

The cool thing is Pinterest has a FREE pin scheduler. You can schedule content for up to two weeks at a time. After switching many of my clients to the free Pinterest scheduler, we saw a HUGE increase in reach over using TailWind. Now I am not bashing TailWind, if you are using it to simply schedule pins and not using the smartloop feature, and it’s working for you, stick with it! 

The video I am going to share with you was a LIVE video I posted to my Pinterest Ninja student group. From one of our weekly training sessions. I got a ton of positive feedback on it, so I wanted to share it with you today!

I will show you how I track which pins have gone to which boards and how I find my top-performing pins. Then, if I need a quick boost in reach, I can create content I know is popular RIGHT NOW with my specific audience.
