You can use Tailwind to grow blog traffic– You say?
Yup! You sure CAN!
When I first started blogging a couple of months I gave myself a pageview goal to reach by the end of this year and to my surprise, I have hit my goal and more. One of the outlets I use to generate a ton of traffic to my blog site is Pinterest. Pinterest is one of the best outlets for bloggers right now and definitely my favorite. Not only can you generate a ton of traffic to your Pinterest page but you can also generate a ton of traffic to your blog as well.
One of the best ways to do that is by signing up for a scheduling service such as Tailwind. I was able to go from very little pageviews to massive growth by using Tailwind. In this post, I will share with you how using Tailwind to schedule my pins has generated more traffic to my blog in a month than I have had all year doing it all by myself & the benefits of the service. I will share how Tailwind Tribe added to my growth and exploded my blog + biz!
Below are 8 reasons why Tailwind ROCKS & why it’s a must-have for bloggers and small business owners!!!

Let’s dive in to see how Using Tailwind Grew My Blog!
1. You Can Schedule Your Pins
Using Tailwind can you save you a ton of time with the schedule pin feature. With this feature, you can schedule all the pins you would like at once. Tailwind has a browser extension tool which makes scheduling pins very easy to do. You can download it on Firefox, Google Chrome & Safari. With this extension, you can schedule your pins from any website which is super amazing.
I tend to do my scheduling for the week all in one day (On Mondays) and end up with about 7 different pins set and ready to go. Keeping my Tailwind Queue full for the week has been one of the best ways for growth on my Pinterest page and blog.
2. Best Time To Pin Feature
After you connect your Pinterest account to your Tailwind account, Tailwind automatically optimizes your pinning schedule to when your followers are most active. This feature sets up the best times to schedule your pins base on your followers. You can also add your own custom times to pin as well. This feature has been super helpful for me because I discover the best times to pin for my niche (Followers) is between 7 pm to 10 pm daily.
3. Data and Analysis Feature
With this feature, you can see how well your pins are doing on your boards and other group boards. You can also see which pins are performing the best, the comments received on each pin, what time your popular pins were repinned, & more. Basically, you can see what works and what doesn’t work to get the most of out of each pin.
This feature works great if you are apart of different group boards. If you are not apart of any group boards definitely look into it soon! I have a full post on my blog called, “ 10 Pinterest tips that helped grow my blog” and I have included a group board section and how to request to be a part of different group boards in your blogging niche. Group boards play a huge factor if you want to grow your blog through Pinterest. Check it out HERE!
4. Unlimited Pinning
Oh YES! I love this feature! Once you sign up for the annual PLUS plan ($10 per month) you can schedule an unlimited number of pins or sign up for the 400 pins a month option with the month-to-month subscription. Woo hoo! 🙂
5. Group Board List Feature
I am currently in a ton of AMAZING group boards on Pinterest and this feature has helped me organize all of the different group boards into different lists on Tailwind. Can you say, ” SCORE!”!!!
This feature alone saves me so much time and helps me keep my pins organize on Pinterest. I tend to give the group list on Tailwind a name and put all boards related to that topic in that group list. For example, below I have a Group list named “Saving Boards” and in this list, I have all my group boards that have something do with saving money in there.
6. Tailwind Tribes
A new feature on Tailwind is Tailwind Tribes. Tailwind Tribes are very similar to Pinterest group boards and you can join a tribe based on the topic or niche you are looking for. With the Tailwind Tribes, you are able to add contributors and you will be able to share each other content. and repin posts. This helps with getting more repins which means getting more traffic to your Pinterest page and blog page.
Below is my reach using Tailwind Tribes! Can you believe it’s over 11.4 million with the different tribes I am currently in! WOW!
……Pretty neat, right?
7. Awesome Customer Service
Tailwind’s customer service is top-notch! If you have any questions their reps actually answered them in a timely fashion. They are very nice and very friendly which is a HUGE plus for me when using a new program. I recently had a question and one of the customer service rep at Tailwind answered my question within’ hours. I don’t know about you but I love being able to communicate with a company quickly when I have a question.
8. You Can Test It Out For Free
Can you believe you can actually try out Tailwind and schedule your first pins for FREE! Tailwind lets you try their service for FREE for 30 days without any credit card commitment at all. You will get access to all the features of the Plus account and you will get 100 free pins to try out.
How amazing is that? Also, everyone that signed up with my personal link will also get $15 off if you decide to sign up for the Plus version after your free trial. Tailwind has seriously been a game-changer for me! Not only has my traffic skyrocketed using this tool but I have also been able to save a TON of time.

Thank you so much for this tips! This just made it more clear on how to use Tailwind. I just started my trial this week, and already got a lot of repins 😀 I have also tried Broadbooster, but I like Tailwind more because of all the different tools you can use like seeing when your members ar mostly active.
I have heard so many great things about Tailwind! This post is seriously amazing – pinning it for later!

Jennifer Corter says
I’ve been meaning to use Tailwind! This is a great article! Thank you!
Hi Jennifer! Oh, yeah! I love Tailwind.. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
I just joined Tailwind and wasn’t sure if it was worth it- happy to see you had a good experience. I think I might stick with it!
Millason @SimplynaturalMama says
Tailwind really is the best. The only thing I dislike is how sometimes it forgets my group boards, even when I hit “Refresh.” Do you have that problem?
Oh, no! I haven’t had that problem thus far but I will be on the look out for it.
Thanks for the heads up. 🙂
Thank you! I am terrible with Pinterest and this seems to be the perfect tool!
Hi Stacey! 🙂
Thanks a ton! 🙂 I am glad this post helped.
I have been blogging for years now and get so discouraged because I put a lot of work into my blog and have tried and read and researched all the ways to grow traffic and it is like there is NOTHING BUT CRICKETS out there!! I just started using Tailwind; but it’s very confusing to me. Do I just pin content from my website because ultimately that’s where I want to drive traffic back to? or do I pin other content to my boards as well. If I write and publish a blog post and that post fits 5 of my boards, do I schedule it to all five of those boards at different times of the day and week? I just KNOW that this Pinterest thing is the key to my blogging success and would make a huge difference if I could just figure out how to use it effectively. I have requested to join several Pinterest group boards for my niche (papercrafts, cardmaking etc) but haven’t yet received responses. I tell ya, it’s enough to give a girl a bit of a complex, you know?! LOL. I LOVE to craft and I really do enjoy sharing what I do, but like I said…it’s a lot of hard work, which I’m sure you understand. There’s so much information out there about the effectiveness and power of Tailwind; but I also know that if I’m not doing it correctly, it isn’t going to do me any good. Thanks for help!
I just started using Tailwind a few days ago and I’m already impressed with it! I just don’t quite understand how often I should be pinning my own pins, and to which boards, and how to group them together, etc. I will be studying this soon! I don’t want to irritate followers with re-pinning so need to learn how to space them out with intervals. Thanks for the post!
Do you have any advice on how to find good Tribes to join?
I joined Tailwind a few days ago and joined a Tribe, but it’s pretty dead and I only see people getting 0-3 re-shares. There have to be at least 100-300 people on the board, but it seems like no one really uses it except to pin their own pins. Despite the rules of 2:1.

Hi, Naasira! 🙂
A great place to find Tailwind Tribes is actually on Facebook! Check out the group Tailwind Tribes for Pinterest ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/tailwindtribes/).
I hope you find some awesome ones in that group & thanks for stopping by! 🙂
This blog has super helpful to me that I just had to come back and leave a comment.
I started my blog over a month ago. One of the first things that I learned (through you!!) is that Pinterest is epic for growing blog traffic. I’m a Pinterest junkie already so reading that was amaze-balls. Then I found this post about Tailwind, which came at the perfect time because I work fulltime and can’t pin all day, though I want to. I just want to tell you that Tailwind has absolutely changed the game for me! I probably wouldn’t have learned about it if I didn’t stumble upon your blog post. So thanks so much!!

This is a great post. I started with the Tailwind Trial then switched to BoardBoaster and bought a monthly subscription. It was going great but now my traffic is no longer moving. So I’m thinking of switching back to Tailwind because I’ve heard so many great things about it. The only problem I had with Tailwind was the fact that I struggled with the idea of distributing pins to various group boards. Some boards require you to only post one pin per day but others allow you to pin as many times as you like per day. How can I set up Tailwind in a way that allows me to pin once per day on some boards and then multiple times on other boards? Thanks.
This post is very helpful even though I’m a newbie on Pinterest. I have been struggling on Pinterest until I discovered Tailwind. I just joined Tailwind and I’m not well acquainted with how it works but I believe I’ll understand it soon. Thank you very much.
Heyyy, thanks for this post, i just discovered it and this is such an amazing and helpful tool for my blog Xx
