Interval Pin Scheduling and SmartLoop: What’s the difference, and when should I use each one?
Take a look at two of Tailwind's smartest features, and see how you can benefit from a steady flow of content on your posting schedule.
From Pinterest's Best practices for success on Pinterest:
It’s a good idea to save Pins regularly—consistent, daily activity is better than a once-a-week flurry. Be patient and stick with it. Unlike social networks where all of your audience reach typically happens in the first 24 hours, the reach of your content on Pinterest will continue to grow over time as Pinners discover and save your Pins. Publishing consistently over consecutive months is the best way to build a dedicated audience.
Pinning consistently every day sounds like a lot of time and effort, and that's because it is! Thankfully Tailwind has two great features to make it faster, easier, and smarterthan ever to Pin a lot of content over time: Interval Pin Scheduling and SmartLoop.Let's take a look at both and see what they can do for you!
Interval Pin Scheduling
Interval Pin Scheduling allows you to schedule your Pins to post over a set period of time and to multiple boards. In just a few clicks your content will be scheduled at the intervals that you decide, so you can make your pinning feel both organic and interesting to your audience. This lets you schedule a lot of content quickly and in one sitting, and have the Pins spread out over time. Your content will show up at more times and have more chances to engage with your audience than posting it all in one go, and your boards will feel more active and interesting to your audience, even when you aren't available to manually Pin new content!

You can even use Seasonal SmartLoop to share the right content at the best time of day and at the most relevant time of year! Get more mileage out of your best content by re-circulating it at the times when your audience is most engaged. Sounds like magic? It kind of is!
