Know Your Audience
Sit down and think about your target audience and check your Audience Insights for information on their interests, age and more. Write down all the information you currently have about them that might impact Pinterest use. For example, in what time zone does the majority of your audience live in? In what ways might your niche impact their behavior or how receptive they might be to your content? Are they stay at home moms that are maybe online earlier in the day before the kids come home from school? If you have products that are seasonal, this could also affect timing.
Test It Out
Remember this information isn’t foolproof. Testing different times during the week will help you determine what works and what doesn't. Other factors like seasons and trends can affect scheduling.
