Last month at the 2nd annual Launch Bloggers Conference attendees had the privileged of going to the Tailwind office to get some insider information about Pinterest and the Tailwind app. This month we are sharing a few notes from them in our Oklahoma Bloggers and Influencers Facebook group, but wanted to make sure you saw them!

Before we get into the tips though I want to share about Tailwind for those who don’t know what it is. Tailwind is a service that you can use to schedule your Pinterest posts (and now Instagram posts) to automatically publish for you. You can choose how many pins a day, what time of day and what boards the pin should go to. At Launch Bloggers we use it for all our clients!

If you want to try out Tailwind for Pinterest you can try it free for up to 100 pins. For the Instagram scheduler you get 30 posts in the trial. You can try Tailwind for free by using our affiliate link.

Insider information from Tailwind all about Pinterest and the Tailwind app.

Insider Information from Tailwind:

  1. With the new best practices from Pinterest they really want to see fresh, high-quality content. That means new images that have not been seen on Pinterest before. You want to use Pinterest images that vary the text AND images. The technology scans pins for both of these things to ensure it is a “new” pin. It can be the same image, but use a different angle or crop.
  2. Pinterest has changed their best practices including how often you pin and to how many boards. If you use Tailwind they now have SmartGuide that shows you warnings to make sure you are within the new best practices. SmartGuide will keep you up to date with all the latest Pinterest best practices that might happen in the future.
  3. Pinterest’s new best practices include: 1) Don’t post same pin to more than 10 boards. 2) Don’t pin more often than every 3rd day for the same pin. You can find Pinterest Creative Best Practices as well.
  4. Tailwind is currently in beta phase for a scheduler for Instagram that is very similar to the current Pinterest scheduler. There are 30 free posts then you must go to a paid subscription.

If you want to try out Tailwind for Pinterest you can try it free for up to 100 pins. For the Instagram scheduler you get 30 posts in the trial. You can try Tailwind for free by using our affiliate link.

As always social media, searching platforms and the tools we use continue to change. We hope these few points gave you some insider information about the new things going on with Pinterest and Tailwind.
