Social Media. A necessary evil in todays world right? Add in the ever changing algorithms and you have a constant source of stress (at least for me anyways!) It seems like as a business owner, you always need to stay ahead of the curve and on top of your social “game”. Instagram has been buzzworthy for awhile now, but the big outlet we keep hearing about is Pinterest. Now, while i love Pinterest for recipes, projects for my kids, and looking at pretty things… I do not love it as a business owner. I get the energy ready for hopping on over and getting my stuff together on Pinterest, and then I get immediately irritated that I have to Pin photos one. at. a. time. Then once I upload each photo I have to individually describe each one, add a link, tags, albums… the list goes on. Then 5 photos in I am reaching for the wine and throwing in the towel.
Yesterday, I discovered a software tool that literally changed my life.
Well because I pinned 160 pins in the matter of 15 minutes after blogging. That’s right. Every image that I blogged got put on Pinterest instead of 2 or 3 of my favorites.
I introduce to you, Tailwind.
I found it on a whim. After honestly googling “how can I mass upload to Pinterest without losing my mind?” and Tailwind popped up. They give you a free trial to start out with (100 Pins) and after pinning the first 100, I couldn’t resist and I signed up right then and there.
It was just so easy. Honestly, I thought it was too easy. I just uploaded the photos from my computer, and there they all were. I was able to select a board for all of them to go to and then add descriptions to each one. They all automatically linked to my website which is awesome!
You also have the opportunity to add photos to multiple boards. Example, yesterday I was pinning my Armour House wedding, so I created a board specifically for that wedding. I also pinned certain images to my detailed boards like “wedding dresses” “centerpieces” etc. Tailwind then sends each one to all of the boards I selected.
It doesn’t stop there. Tailwind also helps you select the smartest times to post for the day, and schedules your posts depending on how many pins you want to go live each day. You can also choose to force push them though and have them all go through at once.
We are already scheduling our Instagram and blog content, with Tailwind you can literally schedule months of Pins!
I love it so much that I even have a special link for you to get a month of their Plus plan for free. I fell in love in the matter of minutes, and the cost associated was more than worth it.
