Let’s face it, pinning can sometimes be a real drag… especially when it comes to the laborious task of pinning each of your online store products to try and promote them and help bring in a little extra cash.  Wouldn’t it be nice if you could promote your entire eBay and/or Etsy stores on Pinterest with just a few clicks?  Well that time has come!  With Pin4Ever’s new Promote Products tool, you can easily pin all of your product listings from multiple stores, including eBay and Etsy, with more stores on the way.

You begin by creating some new boards on Pinterest or just use existing ones.  Then click on the  Pin4Ever Promote Products Promote Products button on the far right of the Pin4Ever toolbar.  Then enter your Etsyor ebaystore name into the store name box.  Then select the Target Board for where you want these listings to be promoted.  At this point, you can just click the add Add Listings button, and all of your store listings will load into the list:

You can filter the listings that are added by category, price range, and keywords, and add them in a particular sort order, such as by price or by creation date.  If too many listings are coming in, just press the stop16 Stop button.  You can combine listings from different stores and from different types of stores, all in one list.

You also can select individual listings and edit their target board and/or tweak their descriptions.  You can also click on their links to see the actual listing of the item.

Then you can set a delay.  15 seconds is the recommended delay so you don’t get banned for pinning too fast, although you can pin with zero seconds delay if your are pinning less than 300 pins per hour per IP address (this pin rate may change in the future based on what Pinterest allows).  One final setting, you can also check the Pin In Reverse Order checkbox, which will pin from the bottom of your list to the top, so that the pins on Pinterest will wind up the the same order as your list shows.

Once everything looks right, press the Pin4Ever Promote Pin Butto Promote Listings button on the lower right, to begin pinning your listings. You can stop the listings at any time.  If in the remote chance an error occurs while pinning, a error16 will appear in the status column of that listing, and pinning will proceed to the next pin in the list.  You can click on the listing in question, to see more details about the error.

A video demo/tutorial is here to show the entire process:

Pinterest Down? Pin4Ever Backups to the Rescue!

Is Pinterest down? Pin4Ever can help! Yesterday, thousands – perhaps millions – of people around the globe experienced problems with Pinterest. Today, many people are still reporting that Pinterest is down for them on Twitter.  When the Pinterest website has its glitches, it’s nice to know that a Pin4Ever backup saved on your own computer has a copy of all the information you need.

Among the numerous complaints about losing Pinterest access yesterday, one pinner said she needed a recipe for her child’s birthday party, and couldn’t make it because she couldn’t get to her pin.  If she had had a Pin4Ever backup, she could have easily searched for the recipe, and then clicked the link in it to go to the original website that was the source of the pin.

Many other pinners are reporting that their Pinterest Followers and Following are disappearing. With a Pin4Ever backup, in addition to your pins, likes and boards, you also have a complete record of your Followers and Following on the date you run the backup, in case you ever need it.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Pinterest has had down time.  Even The Huffington Post has covered similar Pinterest website glitches in the past.  Why take the risk that you may lose access to your pins and other information, either temporarily or permanently? Protect your account with a Pin4Ever backup today!

Pinterest’s Next New Feature?

Is Pinterest testing a new feature? Click for details!I was recently contacted by a fellow pinner, via a comment left on one of our Pin4Ever pins.  She said she had just joined Pinterest after Christmas, and had really liked the choice of “bold” background colors for viewing her boards.  After a malware attack and clearing her cache, she was left with only Pinterest’s standard “ugly gray background.”

The pinner asked if I knew of any remedy to restore the bold color option.  Unfortunately, I did not, as Pinterest offering a background color choice is not something I’ve experienced or read anything about.

Apparently, at least some pinners are being offered this option to change the background color.  Perhaps you have it on your own account, but haven’t noticed it yet.  The woman who contacted me said the color choice was located in a pull-down or drop-down box under the Likes section of her account.

The Pinterest Help section says “From time to time, we do test out new ideas and features with select groups of Pinners to make sure they really feel right before we introduce them to the rest of the world.”  After collecting data and feedback, the Pinterest team makes a decision about whether to roll out the new feature for all pinners, or try something else.

Have you seen the color choice option, or any other new feature tests, on your account?  Please let us know in the comments!
