Tailwind changed my Pinterest strategy in just 30 days!
Tailwind is an explosive scheduling tool that will optimize your Pinterest platform for your business or blog. It has helped me go from 23k impressions on Pinterest to 189k in just over 1 month! All from scheduling 15-20 pins/day.
Throughout this post, I want to show you how Tailwind changed my Pinterest strategy for the better.
If you want to try Tailwind for yourself they offer a free month to new subscribers. You can pin up to 100 pins for free.
Tailwind Has Many Tools Available For Your Blog
Tailwind is a Pinterest approved scheduling tool. What does that mean? It means that Tailwind and Pinterest are working hand in hand to help both platforms work together seamlessly. Therefore, you will never get penalized for using Tailwind for your Pinterest marketing.
Not only does Tailwind schedule pins for you, but they also have Tailwind Tribes. These work a lot like group boards on Pinterest. Tribes can help you tremendously. By pinning your pins to their Pinterest boards you will have the opportunity to go viral with a pin quicker.
Download the Tailwind Tribes Tracker and track when you pin to your new tribes.
If you want to try Tailwind Tribes for yourself, you can start a free trial. The free trial will give you 5 Tribes for free.
I have two Tailwind Tribes I’d love to have you. Both are pretty new but do not let that scare you from joining! A new trend I have been noticing around Tailwind Tribes lately is small niche tribes.

Tailwind uses a scheduling system that posts your pins to Pinterest at the best time for exposure to your followers. This is awesome because your followers will be on the platform at those times and can engage with your pins! This means more opportunities for a pin to go viral.
One of my favourite features of Tailwind is its SmartLoop tool. This allows you to pin your seasonal content in a set it a forget it fashion. You can add your Christmas pins so that they only post from October to December. Or you could use it the way I do and pin evergreen content to your group boards only. It’s really up to you.
Tailwind and Pinterest work hand in hand together like a beautiful marriage! Did I forget to mention that Pinterest recommends Tailwind to its users? They do! They also work together when one releases updates the other follows suit. This happened recently on their latest update.
As I discussed in my post on Pinterest, the recent update finally gave us a little insight into their algorithm. They incentified us to produce more content on a regular basis and upload it to the platform. New content will be pushed ahead of old repinned content on Pinterest. We already had an idea that was going to happen although nice to hear it from the source.
SmartGuide is a new feature that Tailwind recently launched in response to Pinterest’s latest updates.
This feature is an excellent addition. SmartGuide will:
- monitor the pins that you are pinning to your account
- let you know if you are pinning too much of the same content too often
- help you to understand if you are spamming Pinterest with too many of the same pins or pinning too often
- suggest fixes to maintain a healthy queue of pins
Within the next couple of months, new features will include
- keeping you up to date with the latest Pinterest updates
- giving advice on how to fix your Pinterest
Informative Video On Pinterest’s Latest Updates
Anastasia is one of my go-to bloggers for Pinterest and Tailwind updates. This video is so good I had to share it with you guys. She goes into great detail about the latest Pinterest updates.
Board lists are the best time savers, in my opinion. All you have to do is save all your similar boards into one list. That way you are only looking for one board name instead of several. Such a time saver!

When To Schedule Your Pins
Every Sunday and Wednesday I sit down and schedule my pins to Tailwind. I have scheduled them all on a Sunday in the past but I since switched it up when I began creating more pins for my posts. I now have more content prepared during the week so I want to schedule them to my boards as well. This is why I added another day during the week to schedule my new pins.
I hope that I have given you enough information on Tailwind and all its amazing features. Although, do you know something? I never even mentioned it’s in-depth analytics! They have a tremendous amount of information available to you, from the best-performing pins to best performing boards. If you hook up your Google Analytics you can also gain valuable website analytics.
Easily try Tailwind for yourself! They offer a free month to new subscribers. You can pin up to 100 pins for free.
My best advice would be for you to try the program and play around with it. I find the best way to learn is to try it for yourself. Then you can see all Tailwind’s amazing features up close and personal.
