Join Bobby Owsinski as he shows how to promote your band, your music, and your gigs on Pinterest. Learn how to start a page, optimize your website or blog for easy pinning, and post pictures, audio, and video to your boards.

Pinterest is a somewhat different animal when it comes to post frequency, in that the quality of the image is much more important than the quantity. As a result, your followers can sustain more pins per day if what you post directly pertains to them. That said, there's less noise on Pinterest than on Twitter, so there are several times when an artist or brand can post too much, and that the posts become very obvious. As a general guideline, the musician or band should post several times throughout the day, staggering your posts daily so that they aren't posted at the same times every day.
Studies have shown that mixing up the times that you post increases the chances that your pins will be seen by your followers.
