This post discusses how to use Tailwind to grow your Pinterest Boards. In order of preference, you want to use fresh new pins and pin them to the most relevant board first.
What if I were to tell you that there’s an easier way to find the “popular” pins (in Tailwind), the ones that will probably get repins and bring traffic to your Pinterest and then to your blog.
The 1st alternative to designing fresh new pins is to use Group Pinterest Boards and repin from other boards (providing that you don’t duplicate any existing pins, so use caution).
Secondly, and this is the gist of this post, you can use the Tailwind Weekly Highlights feature.
What you are looking for is a button called Weekly Highlights with a star and an orange circle (see below).
It doesn’t show up each and every time in a community, once in a while, it won’t even be visible. I wish I could tell you why it is sporadic because even my Tailwind Community does not have this worthwhile feature.
It shows the weekly highlights of the top pins for each consecutive week.
I’m guessing that if you’ve got several Communities in Tailwind, more than likely you’ve been through the Communities with a fine-tooth comb to fine the pins that you are looking for.
If you are in Tailwind and you are looking for which pins to select you need to look closely at the pins. Most pins previously pinned on Pinterest will have a banner across it saying “Published” (on the left). Another thing to look for is pins that have a banner across them that says “Scheduled” (on the right). These are your pins that are about to be published and are waiting in your queue.
This saves you considerable time sifting through each and every pin and you can focus on the top-performing pins that you can place into one of your boards.
One of the best ways to improve the growth of your Pinterest account is by looking at your Tailwind’s Engagement Rate (located in Insights) on the bottom right. Your ultimate goal in Tailwind is to have an Engagement rate of 100%. That means that for a random survey of 5,000 pins surveyed every one of your pins has at least 1 repin. People are noticing your pins, which grows your impressions, your clicks, and your saves. Mine’s at almost 10% which is the monthly goal that I’ve set for the month of February. It’s currently at 9.7% so I’m nearly there. Yahoo!. Yippee skipee!.
Simply click on the button and you are off to the races. You can also hide the Scheduled pins. For some odd reason, scheduled and published pins show up whether or not the button is checked. So you might not even want to consider using it if that’s the case, but it’s worth checking out. In case it decides to work on your end.
I’m hoping that after reading this post, that you’ll want to try out Tailwind’s Create program and give it a spin. It’s an extra program that’s on top of the regular Tailwind application. You get 15 free pins for the first go around, after that you’ll need to buy another package if you want to create more pins in increments of 100 per month or 300 per month.
How to use Tailwind to grow your Pinterest Boards
In a post that I wrote earlier called the Ultimate Guide for using the improved Tailwind, I didn’t mention anything about this feature so I’ll be updating that post with this information as well (for future readers).
Another post that you might want to check out is Tailwind Tribes. This was written before Tailwind changed from Tailwind Tribes to Tailwind Communities so the title (of the post) hasn’t changed. It provides many Tailwind Communities that you can join instead of using the feature that is built into Tailwind and is hard to use.
The other post worthy of mentioning is Designing beautiful pins with Tailwind Create.
It mentions how to use Tailwind Create to make a whole batch of beautiful pins quickly and easily in just a few minutes or less.
