Perhaps you’ve heard more about Tailwind tribes lately. You’re curious but cautious. After all, you’d rather light your hair on fire than devote one more minute to another social media or networking group. I feel you. I’ve been there. Before you run screaming for the hills, let me explain what they are and how they help women in business save time and maximize their reach on Pinterest. Then I’ll recommend the best Tailwind tribes to join for your niche or blog.
First off, Tailwind is a nifty scheduling tool for both Pinterest and Instagram. The program allows you to schedule the same pin to your own boards, group boards, and tribes. You can access analytics for your social media accounts and discover shareable content as well. Their newest feature is a hashtag finder for Instagram.
Tailwind tribes are themed groups of online marketers or bloggers who contribute their pins. The purpose is, of course, to share each other's content. I schedule a week's worth of pins (about 120 for me) in under thirty minutes because it's easy and convenient to choose all I want from my fellow tribe members. They, in turn, share my posts. Who doesn't like a win-win?
I joined 19 tribes within my niche about two weeks ago. I submitted 7-10 posts to each one over the last 14 days. Since then I have received 159 re-shares or repins and, according to Tailwind, increased my reach on those pins to 1,062,800. Whaaaat? I, of course, had to check my Pinterest analytics too. The average daily saves from my profile went up by 21.58%. And the daily views the pins from website got jumped an incredible 141.51%. Happy dance!
For the time being, tribes are not searchable. So, it remains difficult to find appropriate Tailwind tribes to join. Although, I have heard through the grapevine that a search feature will be added in the near future. In the meantime, I've gathered together this list for you to consider.
