What Is Tailwind?

Tailwind is an intelligent auto-scheduler for both your Instagram and Pinterest feeds. At the time of writing this, Tailwind is the only approved software that allows for scheduled pins in Pinterest and posts on Instagram, though other users have used Board Booster which has proven to be useful. But as it is not approved by Pinterest, I would use it with caution.

What Can I Use Tailwind For?

You can use Tailwind to help grow your numbers in both Instagram and Pinterest as you let it post and repin at the optimum times, using your best-performing pins. It does come at a cost and my suggestion would be that you would use Tailwind in the consistent growth phase of your business as you can probably handle the repinning when you first start out.

How Do You Use Tailwind?

Tailwind does the hard work for you by analyzing your boards as well as pinning times and based on this, creates a schedule that optimizes both.

We have created a video on what Tailwind is and we show you some of the functionality of it when used with an Instagram account.

Tailwind can be a great add-on to your marketing efforts – it frees up your time when your Instagram and Pinterest account start to get really big.  But you still need to create the right boards/posts for your business, which only you can do!
