It is well known Pinterest is a search engine for the aspiration-al. Folks visit that platform to find, source, sort and organized DIY projects, recipes, outfits, baby shower ideas, and more.
Because the other end of these pins are websites, Pinterest is a major driver of traffic to a lot of websites and many people are able to convert website visitors into customers, affiliate ad or link shoppers, clients and more! Pinterest marketing is now a thing.
By now, most people know that not only is it impractical to sit home all day pinning and promoting your site or company, it could be considered spam if you did so. One needs to spread out pins across the day and across different boards.
Fortunately, there are a few platforms that are built on top of Pinterest that enables bloggers, content creators and content marketers to promote their pages and sites seamlessly and effortlessly.
One of, if not the only, Pinterest-sanctioned and approved platforms, is Tailwind!
I use it and am using it now even more than another platform I used to love, Boardbooster, has gone under!
With Tailwind, you can schedule pins to automatically pin on your site and on various boards on your account. You can monitor how well those pins are doing in terms of others repinning them, clicking thru and saving them. You can use it to Pin from your Instagram account.
You can also join “Tribes” of other like minded users in a same niche as you and together, you all can share each other’s pins as part of rules established by the Tribe owner. When I started joining tribes, my traffic and reach tripled in one month! Seriously!
It’s the best thing since slice bread in my opinion. I’m getting more into Tailwind and did a video tutorial sharing all of the various functions of this system.
Check it out here! and When you’re ready to try it out GET TAILWIND! Its FREE!
