Well, hello there! How are you today. As I’m writing this, I am sitting poolside watching my girls splash around in the pool. It’s my favorite way to spend a summer afternoon. I will jump in and join them in a bit but first, I gotta finish this blog post. Cuz I wanted to give you a heads up on something BIG that is going down in the Pinterest universe.
If you use Pinterest to bring traffic to your blog, you need to use some type of automation software. But which one should you use? There’s a lot of hype around BoardBooster and Tailwind but Pinterest has picked the one YOU should use.
BYE, BYE BOARDBOOSTER!
Last week, I shared that Pinterest helped me dramatically increase my blog traffic and sales (over 1000% to be exact!). Lots of bloggers know that Pinterest is the real power behind a successful blog.
But you definitely need some type of automated scheduling tool for Pinterest if you’re gonna use it to bring tons of traffic to your blog. I also shared that I use Tailwind to automate pinning images to Pinterest. Because as much as I love Pinterest, I don’t have hours and hours every day to hang out on Pinterest. I got stuff to do! So Tailwind has helped me save lots of time by automating pinning images to Pinterest for me.
Even though I use Tailwind but there are other Pinterest automation tools out there such as BoardBooster. BoardBooster is a really popular tool that lets you loop and schedule Pinterest pins in advance. It’s only $5 a month and has been around for a while. But before you run off and sign up for BoardBooster, I want you to keep reading…

BoardBooster works great. However, it is NOT an approved Pinterest partner. That means that if you use BoardBooster to schedule your pins, Pinterest may shut down your account. Why? Since BoardBooster is not approved for use by Pinterest, your account can be viewed as spamming other Pinterest accounts when you pin images. This can result in your Pinterest account getting banned. Now, I don’t know about you but Pinterest is critical to the success of my blog. I am trying to stay in their good graces and don’t want to do anything to wind up in “Pinterest Jail”. And you shouldn’t either. So if you are using BoardBooster as a way to automated or loop your Pinterest pins, I strongly urge you to stop immediately.
Check out this email that Pinterest send out last week…
Lots of bloggers used BoardBooster because it’s considerably cheaper than Tailwind. But look, you get what you pay for. And since using BoardBooster can get your Pinterest account shut down, well, that’s a price that’s too high to pay. And if Pinterest is taking the time to send out emails telling bloggers not to use BoardBooster, then I wouldn’t use it. It’s not worth it in the long run.
So if you are signed up to BoardBoaster, please cancel your account today. Don’t wait. I suggest using Tailwind to automate pinning your Pinterest images. Tailwind is the only approved Pinterest partner for automated pinning. And word on the street is that Pinterest and Tailwind might be merging soon. That’s all rumors and speculation so we’ll have to wait and see what really happens. It it does happen, that would be AWESOME!
In the meantime, check out my blog post where I detail my Tailwind pinning strategy that brings lots of blog traffic from Pinterest. This is the strategy I use to bring tons of traffic to my blog.
