And just in case you’re not taking advantage of these awesome tools – here are some reasons you should be:

Why You Should Be Using Pinterest

  • 100 million ACTIVE users
  • 176 million registered users
  • 42% of adult online women use Pinterest
  • 80% of all pins are repins
  • Pinterest has the longest shelf life of all social networks (40% of clicks happen day 1, 70% happen the next two days, the final 30% happen 30 days+)

This means that businesses and brands looking to build or grow a targeted community on Pinterest need to consistently post engaging, gorgeous, and entertaining pins.




Why You Should be Using Facebook Groups

Facebook are not a replacement for your Facebook page, but an awesome way to boost your business and build relationships with your clients. The best part about Facebook groups is that all your posts will show up in the newsfeed. Facebook groups are NOT affected by the algo. The downside is that the updates will only show up to the members of your groups, but you have a whole hell of a lot more control over what is seen…so we highly recommend these become a part of a business strategy.

Needless to say, we are so excited to announce that you will be able to schedule and publish pins to Pinterest and posts to Facebook groups as well. This is on top of everything else you can do on Socialdraft:

  • Scheduling to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Instagram
  • Social Media Reports

  • The SmartID Influencer Tool

  • Instagram Management Tools
  • Web Alerts that Can Be Converted to SMM Posts in Seconds
