I have fallen in love with Tailwind Tribes and how much they boost my Pinterest traffic!
Tailwind has been an ultimate blogging favorite of mine for a while now. The website as a whole is just a fantastic tool for anyone who wants to boost their social media and blog traffic. So today I wanted to share with you the wonderful part of Tailwind called Tailwind Tribes and why you should absolutely take advantage of them!
Quick Tailwind Overview
Okay, just to recap what Tailwind is in case you’re unfamiliar with the website. Tailwind is a Pinterest (and Instagram) scheduler that allows you to batch schedule pins to multiple boards at various times. Tailwind also analyzes your followers and creates a pinning schedule that maximizes engagement and increase your chances of boosting traffic.

What are Tailwind Tribes?
Tailwind Tribes are, to me, a smaller version of Pinterest with a greater concentration on certain topics. You and many others join these Tailwind Tribes, share your pins, pin other people’s pin, and help each other boost traffic and get tons of repins. There are so many great features to Tailwind Tribes that allow you to see how your pins within the tribe are performing. You also get to see how many re-shares you get from the repins of others. Another great thing, the Tailwind Tribes feature is free, so you don’t have to get a paid account right away. (But trust me, you’ll love it so much you want a paid account. That’s exactly what happened to me!)
How to Join a Tailwind Tribe
Tailwind, by no surprise, has a feature that allows you to search for tribes based on topics you may like or be interested in sharing your pins with. Some tribes allow you to join automatically, but some require that you “request to join”. This could mean simply sending a request or it could mean answering a few questions about what you pin and/or your blog before the tribe creator will approve your request. Either way, check your tribe limit to see how many tribes you can join. If you want to join more tribes and get more tribe submissions, you can purchase “tribe power-ups” for varying increases in both.
Be a Good Tribe Member
Once you’ve joined or been accepted into the Tailwind Tribes, I highly suggest that you be a good tribe member to ensure you’re not kicked out of any tribes. My first tip for being a good tribe member is to read and follow all of the rules set by the tribe creator. There may be a few, but there may be many. Just make sure you read them all and follow them. My second tip is to upload high quality photos. This allows other tribe members to re-pin your pin because it follows their aesthetic.
No some tribes may have a rule that you must re-pin the exact number of pins your upload. So if you share 5 pins, you have to re-pin 5 others. I try to re-pin a few extra just because I feel it’s respectful to the tribe, especially if there’s no limit on how many you can upload to the tribe. My last tip is to stay on topic. If the tribe is for food pins, don’t upload your fitness routine pin. Super simple, but you’d be surprised by what people try to get away with. Some tribes are a “free for all” meaning there’s no topic. If that’s the case, feel free to pin your heart out with whatever you want!
