Do you ever feel like you’re spending way too much time on Pinterest, and wish you could just schedule content to go out at specific, optimized times? Tailwind is the best tool I’ve come across for doing just that. It has tons of bonus features too like analytics and Tailwind Tribes. Perfect for saving time and being more productive with your pinning strategy. Read on to learn more! 🙂

Having your pins shared on Pinterest throughout the day is a great way to show that you’re an active user and keeping your content fresh. At the same time, you want to make sure the times you’re putting out content are optimized to when the most people will be seeing it.
So in the mornings before 9 AM, at noon and later in the nightly hours when people are supposed to be sleeping but really checking their Pinterest feeds (guilty <.< >.< >.>).
You can create your weekly pinning schedule and set the exact times each pin will go out on Tailwind. Here’s a look at what my Pinning schedule looks like:
I try to share at least 20 pins per day for my pinning strategy, but if you’re completely new, consider pinning 30-50 pins per day to fill up your boards. Also, the green bubbles are optimized times from Tailwind that you can add to your schedule, or you can add a new timeslot with a custom time you’d like a pin to go out.
Note: If you only see a few optimized (green) timeslots, refresh your page and Tailwind will update the page with more timeslots you can add.
This is one of my favorite features on Tailwind and makes pinning so much easier and faster! Basically, the idea is that you create a major list and under it add in all relevant boards.
So when you’re pinning content and for example it would fit into multiple boards, you can just type in your board list name and add the pin to ALL the boards. 😀 It comes in really handy if you have a lot of different boards that can hold similar content.

Huge numbers girl here so I love the analytics section on Tailwind! And totally not embarrassed to say that I happen to spend most of my time on Tailwind here haha. There’s something about seeing growth and progress that makes me feel strangely at peace.
In the analytics, you can monitor your Pinterest profile and domain stats. From repins to likes and daily follower growth, there’s a lot of helpful info you can use when you’re just starting out and trying to find out how you can grow your Pinterest account.
By far, my favorite feature right now. At the moment Tailwind Tribes is in alpha testing and I’m already seriously in love with it. Tribes a lot like group boards, in that a community of like-minded pinners come together and support each other by pinning other’s content.
I actually just recently joined a few tribes and love the engagement I’ve been seeing in them. Totally late to the party, but very happy I decided to join in.

Pretty cool, right? 🙂
If you couldn’t tell, I’m a huge Tailwind fangirl and think it’s a great tool you can use to save time on your Pinterest strategy as well. One last thing I want to mention really quick is that they have demos, tutorials, webinars and tons of support if you ever feel lost or aren’t sure how to use a certain feature. Tailwind is by far the most intuitive scheduling tool I’ve come across and has a lot of additional features that come in really handy too.
Is Tailwind apart of your Pinterest strategy? 🙂
