Let’s take a deeper look at how dlvr.it for Pinterest simplifies your life and helps boost your social media reach.
Dlvr.it’s Pinterest for Business Tool Simplifies Pinning
Simplification #1: Cut Pinterest Pinning time in half
We often hear from small business owners that removing even one step in the social media sharing process is hugely beneficial.
Here’s an example of the typical workflow for sharing content on Pinterest:
- Step 1: Find and download images to support a blog post
- Step 2: Log into Pinterest
- Step 3: Write a short description of the blog post for Pinterest
- Step 4: Upload an image to Pinterest
With dlvr.it, you can skip the logging in and uploading steps, cutting your Pinterest Pinning timing in half!
With dlvr.it for Pinterest, there is no need to manually create Pinterest Pins – ever again!
For example, every blog post we create, we use dlvr.it’s smart automation tools to share the blog post on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and more.
- Typically, we would create a Pinterest description and manually upload the supporting image and text to Pinterest. That is if we remember!
- Often we create and schedule blog posts weeks in advance. We have to remember each day to upload the newest blog post image to Pinterest.
Instead, now we simply schedule Pinterest within dlvr.it.
Auto-magically, all our Pins go live at the same time the blog post goes live – even when they are scheduled weeks in advance!

Pinterest for Business Time-saving Workflow:
Here’s an example of the workflow where you can see how using Pinterest for business pinning eliminates most of the steps. It only takes an RSS feed and a few clicks to add Pinterest to your existing dlvr.it account. If you already have a blog, you can use your existing blog RSS feed and instantly Pin your blog posts.
Remember the typical four-step workflow mentioned above for sharing content on Pinterest?
Here’s the new workflow:
- Step 1: Find and download images to support your blog post
- Step 2: Wait, there is no step 2!
Yes, that’s it!
