Having a crack at Pinterest with Tailwind

Remember when I did a thing with Instagram? I tried to grow my Instagram following trying a few different tactics.

Well, I’ve decided I’m going to do the same with Pinterest after being inspired by the Social Media Marketing Podcast where there was an episode about getting more traffic from Pinterest.

I decided to log in to my Tailwind account for the first time in 2 years and get this show on the road.

How to use Tailwind.

I am not an expert when it comes to using Tailwind, but I plan to slowly learn over the next few weeks.

So here are the very basics:

Scroll down to the ‘Your Schedule’ section of the menu. You can use Smart Schedule to schedule the times when your users are most active. You can also add more timeslots if you wish.

The green times are the Smart Schedule times for my account and the grey on ones are what I’ve manually added.

Next up is installing the Tailwind extension into your browser you can schedule posts from any webpage right away. Even from Pinterest itself! This makes it quick and easy to schedule to multipleĀ boards and once, edit the description and add hashtags.

You can use the ‘Scheduled Pins’ tab to see everything that is scheduled. You can edit, delete and move pins around in this menu.

These are my current stats:

As you can see, I’m not very active on Pinterest so it’s not great!

Here’s what I am doing in my first week of this Pinterest Experiment:

  • Scheduling pins a day.
  • Scheduling a mixture of my own pins and others.

Very basic and very easy. I’ll review in a week and start adding a few other things into the mix. I’ve got some great ideas, so come back soon!
