Tailwind for beginners! + An invite to Girlbosses of Pinterest Tribe!

We all know what Tailwind is, right?

If you are a blogger, then there is probably no chance that you aren’t already on Tailwind, or at least heard of it. For most of us, Pinterest is one of our biggest sources of traffic, but the limits are actually endless! Tailwind is a Pinterest scheduling tool. Why is this something you need? It helps you consistently grow on Pinterest, and Tailwind will actually find the best times to pin for you! Even if you are just starting on Pinterest, you can use Tailwind to build up your Pinterest, and therefore, build up your authority on the search engine.

What I love about Tailwind is how easy it really is to use. I can not only schedule my own content through the platform, but I can also find new content from amazing bloggers to share as well. An amazing part of Tailwind is the browser extension that you can download. This allows you to post directly to your Tailwind Tribe or Queue super fast. I’ve seen such an increase in my blog traffic since using Tailwind that it is almost unreal. Tailwind is also free to use, but does have a paid option. I currently have the paid version, but the free is honestly just as good!

Tailwind Smart Schedule

Since I don’t have all of the time in the world to be on Pinterest, I used the Smart Schedule option to find the best times to post on my account. You can find this my going to ¬†your Publisher option on the left hand side. Click on Drafts, then head over to “Your Schedule” on the right hand side. At the bottom, you will see an Add/Remove Time Slots. Once you have found that, you should see a button at the top that says Generate New Smart Schedule. As you can see below, I post about thirty times per day on Pinterest. This is repeated for every day out of the week, but the times are different depending on what time is best.

Tailwind Tribes

Tailwind Tribes are free for any user to join. You get five slots to fill with whatever tribe works the best for you. Tailwind Tribes are amazing because it is a killer way to drive traffic to your blog, and an amazing way to find content to share on your Pinterest boards. You can find Tribes to join by clicking on the Tribe button on the left hand side of your dashboard. From there, you can search for various topics that are closest to your niche or interests. This can be a keyword, tag, or a category.

Once you have found a Tribe that you want to join, make sure that you are familiar with the rules and description. Most Tribes have 1:1 share ratio, which means that for every post you share, you need to share a post from the group. You can also monitor your analytics for the group as well. You can see how many reshares your pin has revived in the group, how many repins you received, and the total reach from those shares.

Since we all want traffic to our blogs, make sure you are paying attention to the activity level of the group. Those with higher levels of activity are more likely to give you the results that you want. Additionally, you need to be creating vertical pins for Tailwind Tribes. These are proven to perform better on Pinterest, and other users are more likely to repin those to their various boards. The key to succeeding in Tribes is to give more than you take! Make sure you share others!

    This is awesome! I’ve actually only used Tailwind for IG scheduling – I didn’t even know it could be used for Pinterest. Thanks for sharing!
