There are plenty of ways to schedule pins, but finding a free one is like enduring the Odyssey. On other social networks, there are multiple ways to schedule posts for free. I tweet every hour, but that doesn’t mean I’m on Twitter every hour.
You won’t be on Pinterest every hour, and when you aren’t on Pinterest, your boards aren’t getting updated. Group boards solves this problem. With a group board, you can have other people updating your boards for you. If you have 100 contributors for your group board, and each of those people pins on your board once a day, that’s 100 extra pins a day for that board. A board with a lot of pins is going to look better than a board that doesn’t have a lot of pins.
In addition, when another contributor joins your group board, your board gets put on someone else’s list of boards. This gives that particular board more exposure. If someone clicks “Follow All” on one of your contributor’s Pinterest account, your board also gets a follow which means you’ll get more followers as well.
Some group boards have millions of Pinterest followers because they are promoted on many Pinterest accounts, and they’re always getting updated since there are so many contributors. Since these boards are easily getting updated multiple times a day, the SEO value increases.
Not only will you gain an advantage, but your contributors will be able to share their content to a larger audience. Your contributors will be able to use your group board to get a bigger following and let more people know about something faster.
I am really excited to start my own group boards. If you are interested in becoming a contributor for one of my group boards, please go here and fill out the form.

Thank you. That means a lot to me.
thought on the other hand, why is having so many important? sometimes less is better. we all don’t want to be major corporations feeding into a society that isn’t working right.

There are some times when less is better, but most of the Pinterest Power Users (over 1 million followers) have over 50 boards and over 1,000 pins.
