100 Pins in 30 minutes: Or how ViralTag Helped me Stay Sane before Vacation

The Story

If I could do everything twice as fast, I think I would be four times as happy.  My natural walking speed is faster than some people’s running (I know. I have often out walked runners in races.) I speed read books.  I have already read 83 books in last 90 days. I type fast enough to earn extra money as a transcriptionist.

Why am I always in such a hurry? Well, because there is so much to do.  And, there is never more to do than before you plan to do nothing.  I mean think about it. You are getting ready for a beach vacation, and your list of errands is a long as your arm.  At least, that is how I am.  And, with social media, so much of it is being around.  If you miss a day, you lose serious traffic.  It can feel overwhelming to imagine taking time away.  But, of course, if you don’t, whatever will you post about?

So, here is where ViralTag comes in.  I should say that I received an offer to blog about it in exchange for 6 months of service.  But, honestly, I had found it useful without the offer. I had been a loyal pinner for ages.  I am thankful for the 15K followers I already have.  And, Pinterest is really just a hobby.  It is the ideal thing to help me unwind after work. You have Words with Friends, and I have Pinterest.  Yet, I do get a charge when I get more followers.  I have some pride in my following. But, it is one more thing to tend.

This is where I turned to ViralTag last week.  I know that there are times when I don’t even have the ten minutes to pin a few pins her board.  You need to pin at least three pins each day for your board to be considered active by the system.  It was so easy to get through scores of pins in very little time.

This week, I turned to ViralTag so that I could go on vacation without stressing that I needed to find time to tend my Pinterest account.  (I could have used it for Instagram, but I plan to live Instagram my vacay.)

I spent 30 minutes and I got 100 pins done, each with a handwritten caption.  This sounds crazy, but it wasn’t.  I wasn’t racing. And, I wasn’t calling it in.  It was an efficient way to do twice in 1/2 the time.

The Process

It is so easy, you don’t need this.  But pictures sure do make everything easier, right?

Start by setting up your Viral Tag account and agreeing to have a button–three circles on a red square.

Now if you hover, you will see the button (just like if you see the Pinterest button.) But for me, it was all about the bulk scheduler. To do that, you click the button at the top bar after opening a page with a lot of image, like a Google image search, Instagram, or Pinterest.

Then select all the items that work on a particular board. (You can just select all, and then hand allocate each per board. But this will take WAY longer than the way I do it.)

Click the word options near the phrase “Bulk Editor” and then choose the board. Leave the comments blank since it will override the existing individual blurbs.

Scroll down, writing a blurb for each.

And, then add each to queque or add to the schedule. 

And BOOM! You are done.

It was so easy. It was a no stress way to get through a number of posts, without feeling any exertion. Now, I will say, I haven’t stopped pinning through the app.

For me this tool is ideal to keep a baseline social media presence so that when life gets INSANE, my accounts don’t go dead.  If that sounds like something you need, go to ViralTag to try it out.
