I started blogging and using Tailwind approximately 2 months ago . Although Tailwind is an incredible program that saves considerable time by automatically adding pins to Pinterest instead of me to manually add them, it does have one major drawback. I this post, I’m going to tell you what I wish I knew 2 months ago about Tailwind.
That drawback is that for imagine if you will that you just created that perfect blog post, along with the perfect pins that you can’t wait to publish to the world to start bringing traffic to your website.
You publish your post, you create the pins on Pinterest and you open your Tailwind account because now you want to share this perfect post with the rest of your Tailwind Tribe mates. You open the board where you’ve just placed the pins and then you wait. You wait some more, and then you wait. It’s like being in the military where there’s a slogan “Hurry up and wait”.
I’m usually pretty patient but when it comes to the blog I’m just like anybody else that the ultimate goal is to bring traffic to your website. How can you bring that traffic to your website if you have to wait a day or two, or three to then upload those pins (if you rely solely on Tailwind)?
Update: At the time that I wrote this post, Tailwind didn’t have a program called Tailwind Create. Tailwind Create will allow you to make a whole bunch of pins from images that are on your website or from stock photos. In a manner of minutes, you can create five new pins (it only allows you to make batches of five pins at a time, anymore than five requires you to get out, and get back into the design to add five more pins).
For more information about Tailwind Create please visit my post called: Designing beautiful pins with Tailwind Create.
Well, I’ve given this some considerable thought. As of this moment, a “majority” of my pins have been uploaded to Tailwind and there’s probably five or so pins that haven’t reached Tailwind yet (for whatever reason, I won’t go into detail why they aren’t showing up, that would only be speculation on my part).
So I have created some Pinterest / Tailwind bookmark pins. It’s easily enough to take a pin and move it in your board from one place to another. The bookmark pins that I have created below are used as markers so I can easily distinguish the last pin that I uploaded to Tailwind. All that needs to be done is to move the bookmark pin to one pin over to the left and then I know that every pin after that spot still needs to be uploaded to Tailwind.
I don’t know if anyone would want to go to this extreme and is having the same problem or not. I’d like to hear your comments and let me know what you think of this. Maybe I’m missing an important setting in Tailwind that’s been overlooked.
Please leave a comment below, thank you.
