I have some heartbreaking news to share with you. BoardBooster is official OVER after 4 years! (*cries a waterfall*).
They had recently sent heart aching emails to all BoardBooster users saying that they’re closing down BoardBooster (by the time you’re reading this, BB has already closed down sadly).
So grab your mug of coffee or tea and let’s get right into it!

You’ll probably get an email from BoardBooster saying;
We have some sad news to share. BoardBooster will shut down on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 after four exciting years. We were always focused on listening to our users and helping them succeed on Pinterest. Unfortunately, BoardBooster’s approach to pinning is no longer allowed. Our attempts to obtain the official partner status for BoardBooster did not work out, so it’s time to move on. We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause to you!
Your BoardBooster account will be available through June 27th in case you want to print out your reports or invoices. Then BoardBooster will stop pinning and all sensitive data will be securely deleted. We’re going to process all due refunds over the next 30 days.
Please stay in touch through our Facebook group:
BoardBooster’s founder will post a personal note with more details tomorrow.
Thank you for your support, and best of luck with your ventures!
I’ve been with BoardBooster for 2 years now during my first blogging days and now I’m literally shocked because I didn’t know this would happen! (R.I.P BB)
So what’s left now since BoardBooster is gone?
The only Pinterest scheduling tool left now is Tailwind which is a verified automatic scheduling tool for Pinterest & Instagram.
I’ve also used this in the past before switching to BoardBooster and now I’m using TailWind again.
If you haven’t used it before, I’ll explain it in a few easy steps.
Let’s start off with how do you schedule the pins to Tailwind.
First off, you MUST install the extension on your browser to make it easier for you to schedule. They will suggest you install it when you sign up for Tailwind.
Next, go on your Pinterest account and find a pin you want to queue up. When you hover your cursor to that pin, a Tailwind icon will pop up. Click that to schedule.
Once you’ve done that, you’ll come across a pop up in which you will have to give it a description and add it to a board that you want it to schedule too. Since this pin already has as a description, then you don’t have to write one. You can also add the pin to multiple boards (so cool right?!)
And remember, once you’re done, click the “Schedule Now” on the top right corner.
Now let’s go to your Tailwind Publisher!
The most important tool is the Publisher Tool which is the place where you can modify and schedule your pins, edit your time, shuffle pins and also look at your analytics.
As you can see on the right, that’s where you can see your scheduled pins or you can go to the tab between “Drafts” and “SmartLoop” to look at the pins in detail.
This way, you can easily edit your pins or change which group boards you want to switch to.
The “Shuffle” button is where you can mix up your pins to different time and date. If you had scheduled them in groups, I suggest shuffling so you won’t have to post the same pins on the same day.
Oh yeah, don’t forget about how awesome Tailwind is with the smart scheduler. The smart scheduler uses your Pinterest data based on how your audience pins your pins the most during that time and day.
Now that you’ve learned the basics on Tailwind, I would recommend watching their Video Guide to Mastering Tailwind.
