*UPDATE 4/3/13 Pingraphy is back up but is now a pay for service. Boo.
*UPDATE 4/1/13 Pingraphy has been shut down. There really isn’t anything else out there that offers this service for low or no cost. You know of one? Tell me in the comments.
I’m sure my schedule is as crazy as yours. Not only do I teach my clients how to create a social media strategy, populate content on their channels, and train them to maintain those accounts, I also manage all my own social media channels. You probably realize because it’s what I do, that that’s A LOT of social media. I use Hootsuite to manage for the majority of my digital channels and ever since Pinterest came around, I’ve been wanting just one feature – the scheduler. Well, lo and behold, it’s finally here!
I found Pingraphy the other day (how, I don’t remember) and it has this elusive feature. It allows you to disperse your content out over time so that you don’t overload your followers feeds. You can find all the great stuff you want and drip it out slowly and/or post it at optimum times.
You sign in with your Pinterest password and you can see your dashboard with two sections: Manage and Track. Manage includes a scheduler, a view of what you’ve pinned recently and how they’ve performed with pins, repins, and comments as well as the pins waiting to be posted. The awesome part about the scheduler is that if you are pinning from a site with multiple pictures you’d like to include, it gives you the option of spacing out the individual images in minutes of your choosing so that they don’t pile up on each other. You can also upload right from your computer, connect to your Facebook profile (not pages), Flickr, or Picasa. You can even edit and enhance your images!
The Track section gives you account stats. It shows overall account activity, your Top Ten pins (thank you!), the it breaks down stats for each individual board.
With this new discovery, it will allow me to do in-depth research and spend a lot of time reading up on a particular subject because I will be able to pin it all in one sitting.
I think I’m in love.
