What Are Tailwind Tribes?
Tailwind Tribes (found inside the Tailwinds app) is the best tool you can use to quickly boost your reach, engagement and traffic on Pinterest.
In this post, I am going to show you how I got over 1,000,000 impressions using Tailwind Tribes in just under a month – and I predict I’ll be able to double that in the upcoming month.
But what are Tailwind Tribes?
Tailwind tribes are communities you join on Tailwind centred around a specific niche or topic.
These tribes have hundreds (sometimes even thousands) of other bloggers and Pinterest account who are more than willing to share your pins to their own Pinterest profile with their followers.
Once you join the Tribes, you are asked to share one post for everyone post you share from other members – which I think is very fair.
The best thing about this is that you can find Tailwind Tribes with high engagement (Tailwind makes it easy for you to do so and I will show you how soon) and in these communities, you will also find Pinterest accounts with millions of followers.
This means that once they share your post with their followers, you instantly get access to those followers and (as most often happens with Pinterest), the same followers will again share and repin your content for even more reach, thus how you can end up with a million+ impressions in just over a month.
So that’s a basic/quick introduction to Tailwind Tribes, let’s now see how you find them, how to use them, and how to boost your reach on Pinterest with their help.
How To Get Started With Tailwind (& Tailwind Tribes)
To start using Tailwind Tribes, you are going to need a Tailwind subscription (CLICK HERE to get one).
While you can still use Tailwind Tribes with a free Tailwind trial account, you will need to eventually go on some sort of a “premium upgrade” plan to be able to fully take advantage of what this tool offers.
First, I will cover how much the different Tailwind upgrade plans cost, then I will show you how to become a member.
How Much Does Tailwind Cost?
Tailwind is free to start using, but you’d be better off getting yourself set up with a Tailwind Plus account which will cost you just $15 per month (or $9.99 per month when billed annually).
With the $15 per month – per account – you get:
The Smart scheduling feature, which you can read about here.
- Ability to schedule 400 posts per month
- Basic profile, board and website metrics
- 5 Tailwind Tribe memberships
- 30 monthly tribe submissions
- and more (you can see here for more details)
How To Join Tailwind (With Pinterest)?
Before I go ahead and show you how to use Tailwind Tribes to start getting the million+ impressions yourself, let me show you really quickly how to join Tailwind, which is very easy to do.
Step 01: Visit The Tailwind App Website
Step 02: Click “Sign Up With Pinterest”
Step 03: That’s It (Just Watch The Mastering Tailwind Video-Guide)
Now that you have access to Tailwind (& Tailwind Tribes), let me show you how to go about finding Tailwind Tribes to join (and how to add pins to them).
How To Find Tailwind Tribes Worth Joining
Down below I will share with you 8 tips to get the most out of your Tailwind Tribes, one of them being picking (and joining) Tribes that you know have a big active community.
To find these Tribes, here’s what you need to do:
Step 01: Go To Tribes Dashboard:
This is the Tailwind Tribes dashboard where you can find, join, manage the Tribes you join.
As you join more Tribes, this dashboard will come to life with plenty of pins from the community that you can then share (by adding to your schedule).
Step 02: Insert Your Topic One The “Find A Tribe” Page
The beautiful thing about Tribes is that you can look and join Tribes which are related to your topic.
For this example, I used home-cooking as a topic and in the screenshot above you can see that Tailwind also suggest other “Related Topics” which you can search for.
Step 03: Look At The “Activity” Tab
This is very important (and you will see why soon), but always join Tribes that have a high Activity score.
This means the community is active and pins on this community are actually getting shared (of course, you do not want to join an inactive community).
How To Add A Pin To A Tribe
Next up, I want to show you how to add a Pin to a Tribe.
Above is a screenshot of how you need to do it, but I believe you’ll understand it better once you see this fantastic video-guide from Tailwind themselves showing you how to do exactly that (& more):
8 Tips For Getting The Most Out of Tailwind Tribes
Nobody likes spam.
Not you, not Pinterest, not Tailwind and not Tailwind Tribes members.
Do not spam these Tribes as you will quickly find yourself ousted from these communities.
Don’t Re-Share The Same Pins
Ideally, you do not want to keep sharing the same pins leading to the same page to the same board.
Keep coming up with great content for your blog, keep designing great pins and always share fresh, new, material to Pinterest and Tailwind Tribes.
Don’t Re-Share The Same Pins To The Same Tribes Either
While this is not frowned upon by Tailwind, my suggestion would be to not pin the same pin to different Tailwind tribes, either.
This is because you will often find that the same Tribe members will also be members of different Tribes as well so they are less likely to share the same pin (even if it’s from two different Tribes).
In an ideal world, you have plenty of blog posts already which can be pinned thus, I would advise you to share one pin to one tribe just once – that’s just my opinion.
Don’t Share All Your Pins In One Go
Depending on what kind of upgrade plan you get, you have an allocated number of pins you can share on Tribes in 30 days.
Even though it’s very tempting to do so when you start seeing your pins going viral-crazy everyone sharing them, you may want to spread out your “Add to Tribes” clicking over the course of the allotted time.
If you have 30 days (and 30 pins to share), add one each day, instead of 30 in one week.
This will make sure you spread out your content and instead of having one huge spike one, you have a steady growth in shares and pins over time.
Share Generously Other Tribes Members Pins
Tailwind Tribes are set up in a way that you “have” to share other people’s pins as well.
It’s recommended that for every pin you add to the tribe, you share at least one. My suggestion would be to pin more than you share from your own.
This keeps the Tribe healthy and thriving and also puts you in the good grace of the Trube community members.
Keep An Eye Out On Tribes Insights For Best Results
Not all Tailwind Tribes are equal.
Once you’re a few weeks/months in, it becomes clear which Tribe is performing the best for you and you can see this inside the Tribes Insights page here:
Make a mental note of the Tribes that are getting you the most engagement and pin to them – you should also consider leaving the Tribes that are not getting you the engagement you need as well as to free up space for other Tribes you may want to join.
Look For High-Engagement Tribes
As mentioned above, when you are looking for and joining new Tribes, you will see the “Activity” measure which is provided by Tailwind.
Ideally, you want to join Tribes which have a high activity rate, ideally a 4 bar + rating.
These may be hard to get into sometimes (you may even need to send a request to join) but focus on these and not the “dead ones” which unfortunately there are plenty of.
Share Pins You Know to Get Clicks, Saves & Impressions
From both your Pinterest Analytics and your Tailwind Tribes Insights (Pin Inspector), you can see which Pins are getting the most shares, saves, clicks, etc…
When you are looking for pins to add to your Tribes, these should be the first ones you share thus making sure that what you are pinning is what you know is already working for you.
