What is a Tailwind Tribe?

Tailwind is, in my opinion, the best Pinterest management and scheduling tool on the market. They are currently testing a new feature called Tribes.

A Tribe is a group of people who share their Pinterest content with one another. In Tailwind’s own words, “Tribes make it easy to collaborate and share content among your peers to grow your reach!”

I began using Tribes about three weeks ago. I am a member of 11 Tribes and I’ve added 12 pins to my Tribes. In that time I have experienced explosive reach and traffic, and the time I spend within my Tribes is less then 15 minutes per week.

To give you an example of the results I’ve experienced in this short three-week period, take a look at the results from my top three performing tribes:

Striving Bloggers:

Blogging Friends Pins:

From just three Tribes, my pins have been shared by my Tribe-mates 240 times, re-pinned by their followers 163 times and my potential reach is over 1.9 million people.

And you know how long it took me to get that exposure?

About 30 seconds!

WHAT?! Can you say, game changer?

I want you to experience this same explosion of traffic, so I’ve created a guided video tutorial to get you started using Tailwind Tribes.

  • I just started with tribes and I’m excited to see how it’ll affect my traffic!

    • Hi Angela! Good luck, let me know if you have any questions. I’m happy to help!

  • Jensee

    I appreciate the post, but I highly recommend that you also type out the information. Although many people use video as their go-to, some don’t. I loathe tutorial videos. I can’t make myself sit through them (same with webinars).

    • Thank you for the feedback Jensee! I appreciate your honesty in how you like to consume information.

  • Heidi Johnson

    This is a great video but it skips the hard part about tribes that I was hoping you would answer. It’s fun to add things to tribes, but it’s no fun to find good content and pin it to your own boards. I was hoping you would have some time saving tips on how to pin quickly to meet the share requirement on tribes.

    • Hi Heidi! You are absolutely right about that. The fastest way I’ve found is to use the Tailwind Chrome Browser extension. When you’re in a tribe push your Tailwind extension button and it will allow you to schedule a bunch of pins at once. I’ll try and update this post with a video demoing that feature soon!

  • I keep seeing everyone saying its totally free and then listening a ton of tribes to be part of, but I am limited to only 5 tribes on the free version, and 30 pins a month. Is there a strategy involved here with this? I’m very confused about how to actually get pins repinned. I know I produce quality pins, but I still don’t hit that reach when I can only be part of a select few tribes. Ideas….?

    • Hi Julie Ann,
      Sorry for the confusion. When Tribes was in Beta mode it was completely free. I need to update this blog post to reflect the changes to their plans. You can still get some great traction with 5 tribes and 30 pins, but I absolutely think it’s worth the price to pay for unlimited. If you go the free route, be really picky about the tribes you join. I’ll do an update soon walking you through this.
