Not sure about switching to Buffer for your Pinterest scheduling? Want to see it in action before taking the dive? Or you’re confused on how to use it? This webinar covers my favorite tips and tricks for pinning with buffer!
I decided to host a webinar on pinning with Buffer because there still isn’t much information out there about this “new” tool for Pinterest – and I’ve been using it exclusively since they launched it! Plus, it was getting exhausting explaining everything to everyone individually. Until Buffer became a Pinterest API Partner, I was using a mix of schedulers for different clients – but mostly Ahalogy, the free Pinterest API Scheduler. Even with the new version of Ahalogy, I found it not at all user friendly and too time-consuming. Buffer has speed things up so much that I’m able to coach more people during the time I’ve saved – and my clients are saving money because it doesn’t take me as long to pin! I also started using Buffer to do all my scheduling for Twitter, Facebook, and G+ – saving even more time. I really like saving time
I mentioned a few bugs in the webinar because they’re still happening at random. Yeah, Buffer itself has been around for a long time – but their Pinterest service is still pretty brand new. The development of it was somewhat last-minute (not their fault) – so if you notice a bug, report it! Their customer service people are incredibly nice and they’ll get right on it.
Ready to take the dive?
Sign up for Buffer via my referral link – this gets you some extra space for scheduling! It is my referral link, but I don’t get anything for referring you because I pay for an unlimited account. Ask your friends if they use Buffer and get their referral link, because it’ll get you both some extra space!
Need more help with Pinterest strategy?
Buffer looked at LOTS of different factors for scheduling pins at their best times and reported it all in this post on their blog. Remember this is an average of a variety of accounts – what works for one person wont work for the other, so adjust for your own following! If you need more personalized Pinterest help, I recommend the Pinning Perfectly class at Blog Clarity – unfortunately this class only happens a few times a year, but they work hard to keep it up to date with all the algorithm changes. I also do one-on-one coaching that includes a strategy and tracking guide.
This post is just a recap for those who couldn’t attend my Buffer webinar live or want to watch it again. There’s two ways to watch – via YouTube, or from the event page on Google Hangouts. When you watch via the event page, you also see the Questions & Answers hangouts app – that’s where everyone was submitting their questions during the webinar. I tried to remember to read the questions before answering, but I know for me as a viewer it’s easier to read them myself as I watch.
If you have any questions after watching the recording, feel free to ask them here in the comments of this post – I’m more likely to see your questions here than on the event page.

Subscribers will receive a free guide to optimizing blog posts for social media sharing later this week!
