If you have been reading my posts for any length of time, you have probably heard me mention BoardBooster at least a time or two. It was a great way to loop pins, even if the interface was really clunky. If you use BoardBooster, you probably received an email from them earlier this week announcing that after four years, they are closing their doors and stopping their services.
Now, this came as a shock to most people, but for me I had already taken my clients off of BoardBooster a few weeks prior after Pinterest announced that it would be cracking down on “non-approved official Pinterest partners.”
Since BoardBooster never gained approval from Pinterest, using it could risk having your account shut down, and no one wants that.
If you didn’t receive the email sent, here it is:
“We have some sad news to share. BoardBooster will shut down on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 after four exciting years. We were always focused on listening to our users and helping them succeed on Pinterest. Unfortunately, BoardBooster’s approach to pinning is no longer allowed. Our attempts to obtain the official partner status for BoardBooster did not work out, so it’s time to move on. We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause to you!
Your BoardBooster account will be available through June 27th in case you want to print out your reports or invoices. Then BoardBooster will stop pinning and all sensitive data will be securely deleted. We’re going to process all due refunds over the next 30 days.
Please stay in touch through our Facebook group:
BoardBooster’s founder will post a personal note with more details tomorrow.
Thank you for your support, and best of luck with your ventures!
If you are one of the many people freaking out over this announcement, don’t worry! I have another solution for you!

What is even more exciting is that they are currently working through the beta stages of a looping feature called SmartLoop.
SmartLoop makes it easy to reshare your best Pinterest pins at the best times for engagement. And SmartLoop will help you:
- Stay consistently active on Pinterest with minimal effort.
- Enjoy peace of mind with customizable limits that ensure you’re not sharing the same content too often or breaking group board rules.
- Maximize engagement on your content by republishing it over time.
- Stay relevant with Seasonal Loops that automatically serve up what your followers want to see when they want to see it.
- Relax in the knowledge that you’ve entrusted your account to an Official Pinterest Partner tool.
