Lockdown: No Horses No Problem! Grow Your Blog Now!

Fellow bloggers this one is for you! This is a very strange and scary time, however as most of us are now confined to our homes what better time to work on your blog?

I wanted to tell you how I get nearly all my blog traffic and that is by using Tailwind! Now if you don’t know already I am actually a Tailwind affiliate, which means this post contains affiliate links so if you do decide to try it and click on the link below at no extra cost to you I will receive a little bit of commission and to be really honest I was also compensated to write this post, although I assure you all opinions are my own. I would never post anything on my blog that I didn’t truly believe in.

The reason I am a Tailwind affiliate is because I am a user and customer of theirs and have found Tailwind to be an excellent way of getting people to read my blog.

What is Tailwind?

Tailwind is a scheduling tool for Pinterest (and instagram but we are focussing on Pinterest for today). If you are not using Pinterest to generate blog traffic you are really missing out. I use Tailwind to easily schedule my posts to Pinterest in bulk, then just let Tailwind post at the set times that I have scheduled which means I don’t have to be on my computer all day everyday pinning on Pinterest, because if you are like me I spend A LOT of time online already.

How to get the most from Pinterest

Fresh content works on Pinterest! In order to get the most from Pinterest you need to create new fresh content, which means creating fresh new pins regularly. Tailwind is particularly helpful with this as you can make new pins each week and batch schedule those pins to Pinterest using Tailwind.  To really get people’s attention you can create pins that are eye catching and this can include new images from your blog posts and new product listings but also new images for existing posts, products and pages. However the key is it has to be FRESH! It is a known thing that the Pinterest algorithm now prefers new content, so hop on board the Pinterest train and ride it to success using Tailwind!

Remember that means even if you are not creating new blog posts constantly, you still need to be creating new pins constantly to fully benefit from using Pinterest. Just schedule those new pins each week quickly with Tailwind.

Typical results

I will share with you that I went from very few views when I started In Due Horse. My blog is an equestrian blog, so it is very niche but that niche has a big online presence. I just couldn’t seem to get anyone to read my blog. Then I started using Pinterest and Tailwind and I quickly started to see great results. I went from 694 views a month in February 2019 to 4792 views in August 2019! I think you can agree although still not enormous numbers there was a massive difference! Although I cannot guarantee this if you do choose to start using Tailwind I did want to share with you my experience of using it.

How Much is it? 

Ok so I know I have spend all this time telling how amazing Tailwind but not mentioned how much it is! It is $119 a year for each social account. Now, I personally think this is worth every penny. I pay this myself and feel that the amount I pay is worth how many people now read my blog. I honestly believe every blogger could benefit from using Tailwind for Pinterest.

There are other more versatile packages of Tailwind available but I will talk about those features in later blogs.
