One of the things that I am learning from my recent reader survey is that people want me to talk about blogging this year. Which is great! I love blogging and it’s always fun to talk shop with other bloggers.
I’m not an expert on the topic by any stretch of the imagination. This isn’t my first blog and I’m sure it won’t be the last! The knowledge that I can share is based on the experiences that I’ve had so far and I am always happy to share whatever I can. Keep in mind here that algorithms and things are always changing so you never know if this will work a year from now!
One of the things that people have expressed an interest in working on is Pinterest and I’m more than happy to spill my secrets here. Pinterest is my biggest driver of traffic by far and it’s easy for me to pinpoint why that is.
There are a few reasons. The first and most important is Tailwind. I don’t exaggerate when I say that. I started my Pages and Pekoe Pinterest account when I started the blog a little over a year ago,
Scheduling with Tailwind
The first benefit to using Tailwind to up your Pinterest game is the ability to schedule your pins well in advance to post throughout the day. While I do manually pin sometimes, the majority of my pins are pre-scheduled. And using the Smart Schedule, it will choose the times when your followers are most active so your pins are more likely to be seen. Pretty handy!
Tailwind tribes are the second biggest reason to use the service. I always fill my pinning queue with pins from my tribes first before I even log into Pinterest itself. Think of it kind of like post sharing groups on Facebook. Not only have I found lots of amazing pins to share
Now, I’m not saying you have to use Tailwind in order to be successful on Pinterest. It’s just something that has worked really well for me. If something works for you, keep doing what you’re doing!
Another huge part of my Pinterest success
One thing that I purposely left out of this post is creating graphics for Pinterest. That’s another post for another day!
