While we handle all the imagery, both stills and video, for your website, branding and social media, the one thing we don’t do is Social Media Management. We are really good at visuals, not so much with the words and scheduling.
We’ve found the perfect tool for scheduling all your social media on instagram and pinterest! Did you know that there are 250 million users a month on Pinterest and 1 billion on Instagram. That’s a LOT of potential customers out there to get your images and message in front of!
Let me tell you a bit about Tailwind - it’s an all in one platform from your desktop to schedule all your pins (you should be pinning 10-12 pins a day!) and all your instagram images (the most successful pinners do up to 3 pins a day). That’s a lot to do on your own - that’s where Tailwind comes into play!
With Tailwind I manage all my accounts and spend one morning a week scheduling all my social media materials for the next week - I’m sure if I had more time, I could do a full month in advance! In fact, the images from this blog post have been fed to instagram and pinterest via Tailwind - so simple!
How do I use Tailwind for Pinterest
I’ll start by walking you through what I do! Every Friday morning is my “Tailwind Day”.
Step 1) Get some coffee!
Step 2) Open up a tab in my browser for Tailwind, my blog page, and my instagram account (just in case I need to look up or copy and paste some vendor tags)
Step 3) Assuming you already have the Tailwind extension installed on your browser (if you don’t do that now! it makes the easy job of entering info, even easier!) Now, on my blog site, I click and open each blog, wait until it’s fully loaded, then click the Tailwind extension button and it will pull up a window with all the images in my blog post. From there I can click which ones I want to Pin (or instagram, but I instagram a different way I’ll put below!) Once I’ve clicked the images I want to pin, all I have to do is select an overall board, or different individual boards for each pin, update my description, hit “publish” and tah-dah! All my images from that blog post are scheduled to pin either at a time I select or let Tailwind analytics decide the best times to pin.
