Are you a new blogger looking to boost your blog traffic? Are you confused and overwhelmed with the process like I was? Well, I found the perfect solution to that problem!

I found the ultimate tool that boosts your blog traffic organically and passively. This means little to no effort on your part, just set it up and you’re done!

*Quick disclaimer: I have older posts on my blog because I blogged privately for a while but I officially launched in August and started using this tool in November. 


So what’s the secret for boosting blog traffic?
Simple – Pinterest & Tailwind.

I know what you’re thinking – “not another Tailwind post!” – because I thought the same thing!

I ignored all the Tailwind posts for too long because I thought it was just casual affiliate marketing but it actually works. 

I tested out Tailwind for a little over one month and I went from 232 to over 100,000 monthly views on Pinterest and 2000 monthly views on my blog. (again, in ONE MONTH).

Needless to say, I am now a paying and lifelong customer.

I started using Tailwind in November. This is my report from Nov 1 to Dec 1. I felt like I literally hit the jackpot!

If you’re a newbie like me I hope this motivates you because I barely had any views and engagement before I started using Tailwind.

Disclaimer: These are my personal results using Tailwind after just a few weeks. Tailwind also published the Typical Results of Tailwind for Pinterest Members annually so you have an idea of what to expect.


So how do you use Pinterest and Tailwind to boost blog traffic?

If you haven’t already set up your Pinterest account, read this Pinterest setup guide to learn how to optimize your profile to gain more followers and views, before you start using Tailwind.

You’ll also want to make sure that you’re a member of a few group boards on Pinterest to get the best results.

Now onto the good stuff…


How Tailwind gets you THOUSANDS of Pinterest and Blog Views

Tailwind has AMAZING features that automate your Pinterest strategy for boosting blog traffic. Pinterest is the #1 source for blog traffic for most bloggers (including myself) but manually scheduling your pins can be very tedious and time-consuming.

These are the following features offered by Tailwind that makes your life 1000x easier while sending a ton of traffic to your blog:


Optimized Pinning Schedule

The green time slots represent the optimal times that have been selected. The time slots with the dotted green outline are other optimized times you can choose to add each day. You also have the option of inputting your own times (which will appear in grey).


Tailwind Tribes

The purpose of these tribes is for your tribemates to share your content with the followers (and vice versa) to increase your reach and get more traffic. The screenshot shows my reach from just one of my tribes after only using Tailwind for one month.

Plus, take a look at this! In my 3rd week, 2 of my pins (2nd and 3rd pictured above) were featured in the Weekly Tribe Awards email because they were the most shared pins that week!


Board Lists
Aren’t you tired of manually creating the same pin over and over on Pinterest just to post it to different boards? Because I definitely was!

Tailwind allows you to create lists to organize your group boards, which you can then select when creating a pin in the scheduler and it posts that one pin you create to all these boards. This has to be one of my favorite features!

In the screenshot above, you can see I create a list of New Boards that I just joined. This helps me organized which boards I have to add my existing pins to. On the right is my list of Personal Growth group boards where I send all my personal growth pins to. Organization made simple.


Board Insight and Profile Performance
If by some miracle you aren’t convinced that you need Tailwind yet then take a look at this:

Ever wondered what group boards send you the most traffic? Tailwind has your answer. 

Tailwind analyzes the virality and engagement scores from each of your boards so you know where to focus your efforts. This includes all types of boards (group boards, regular and secret).


Easy Scheduling with the Chrome Extension
tailwind - boost blog traffic 11When you download the Tailwind extension for Google Chrome (optional) you’ll be able to click on the Tailwind icon or scheduler option to schedule any photo from Pinterest and on the web.

<– this is an example of what you’ll see when you hover over images on Pinterest. So now you’ll have the option to add them to your Tailwind queue to be pinned later.

This is a great way to make sure you’re repinning content from your group boards (it’s a rule for most).




Are you more of a visual learner?
