Pinterest Time Saver – ViralTag

Save Time With ViralTagDo you feel like you have enough hours in a day to accomplish your daily tasks? I don’t know about you, but I frequently feel like I could use an extra hour, hey- some days I’d settle for an extra 15 minutes.

If you’re a small business owner you know exactly what I’m talking about. Meeting deadlines, creating marketing strategies, giving your customers the time they deserve, and the effort that goes in to branding your products is exhausting – worth it in the end, but exhausting. Then there’s social media. You need to set aside time each week to establish your business presence on social media platforms, but who has time for that?!

Scheduling Content is a Life Saver

There are many scheduling platforms available  to help you manage your social media marketing. Today we are going to talk about managing your Pinterest account. Pinterest has proven itself over the last few years to be a front-runner for marketing brands and selling products. But let me ask: when was the last time you spent just a couple minutes on Pinterest? If you’ve found a way to do that let me know, the platform is a huge time sucker. Sure the fact that Pinterest users spend more time on Pinterest than any other platform spells great things for your business, but it wreaks havoc on a schedule when you have a business to run. This is why you need ViralTag – ViralTag will help you achieve “productive pinning.”

How Does ViralTag Work?

ViralTag is a Pinterest management tool that allows you to schedule pins over time and can make a considerable difference in the time spent managing your Pinterest account. Scheduling pins at strategic times is a great way to keep up with your branding while focusing on other activities that generate income, like content creation and product development.

Why You Need ViralTag

We’ve already established time management is key for business owners. Let’s talk about how ViralTag will help keep you sane.  For starters, your free time may not be the best time to reach your audience. It’s easy to upload 10 pins at once because you suddenly found a window of opportunity while drinking your morning coffee, but this isn’t necessarily “productive pinning.” Why? Here are two good reasons:

  1. Just because you’re on Pinterest at 7 a.m. doesn’t mean your target audience is. Pinning when it’s convenient  for you is not always advantageous.
  2. Barraging potential clients with an onslaught of pins in a short period of time may make you appear a little like spam. Research shows a more effective approach is a few pins, uploaded at strategic times. ViralTag will help you do just that.

What Will ViralTag Cost Me?

What does it cost? Surprisingly little when you consider the time you’re saving. ViralTag offers three plans ranging from $4.99 – $28 a month. Already using Hootsuite for social media management? Hootsuite recently added a ViralTag app that will let you easily schedule, share, and analyze your pins on the Hootsuite dashboard. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

Of course, for many business owners outsourcing their social media management is the best option. Letting the pros take care of it ensures quality content, strategic marketing plans, and allows you to focus on more important aspects of your business.  Contact us today, we’ll be happy to work with you – getting the results your company deserves and saving you a little time while we’re at it.
