Looking for better results with Pinterest marketing without spending hours each day? Meet Tailwind App. It’s your new secret weapon to drive more blog traffic and shares with Pinterest marketing.

Here’s why I wrote this review. Other than Google search, Pinterest is the biggest source of traffic to my award-winning blog from any social media site.

More than Facebook.

More than Twitter.

And more than anything I wish I started using it actively… earlier. Much earlier. So I am writing this for you, so that you don’t miss out like I did on a lot of early traffic.

How to Use Tailwind for Pinterest Marketing: The Ultimate Tailwind Review

What is Tailwind App?

I often get asked ‘What is Tailwind and how does it work?’

Tailwind is the ultimate Pinterest Marketing tool for anyone who creates content online or wants to share their offline content online – from small business owners to bloggers to content creators.

Or put simply, it’s the best way to help you post your pins to Pinterest at the time when you will get best results without having to do it manually. It helps you schedule bulk pins at the best times and then shows you how they are working so you get better results:

How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

Note: we are just talking about Tailwind for Pinterest in this post. It’s a separate tool to Tailwind for Instagram although both are awesome!

Tailwind App for Pinterest is really a complete toolkit for sharing, scheduling and analyzing content you share from your blog or website to Pinterest – and for managing traffic, shares and sales on Pinterest.

Can you “Do” Pinterest without Tailwind App?

Yes it’s totally possible to pin manually to Pinterest, but it costs you way more in time than this tool costs in money to do it effectively.

You’ll get results without Tailwind. Pinterest always delivers.  But it will likely be much slower and take a lot more effort to get results anywhere similar to using Tailwind App.

I tried doing it all manually for a while and the difference between Pinterest marketing without Tailwind and with Tailwind is miles apart. I only started seeing traction after I started using Tailwind.

Why Should You Try Tailwind App for Pinterest?

When you use Tailwind for Pinterest you will get results. Even with a small audience. Bold statement, right?

Firstly, you’ll save time because you can literally get all of your Pinterest content mapped out in as little as 10-15 minutes per day (or if you prefer) around 1 hour per week.

But the more time you spend the better the return – in terms of not only time saved but actual Pinterest reach, Pins and Repins or Saves of your visual content.

Tailwind App gives you: 

  • the best times to post
  • an easy schedule and mechanism to add your content
  • the ability to schedule individual posts or repeated content over time
  • the ability to share content at intervals across different boards on Pinterest.
  • an easy way to find great content to share within the Tailwind app
  • an easy-to-use analytics platform to analyze your results and modify your strategy or schedule if necessary.

We’ll cover all these things in this post and some more bonus features (to love) in Tailwind. It’s the ultimate Pinterest Marketing tool and Tailwind is a Pinterest Partner, so you won’t get your account shut down or anything nasty. Pinterest likes Tailwind, so you’re in good hands.

Firstly, let’s take a look at what to expect in terms of results.

What Results Should You Expect?

There are a lot of blog posts about results on Tailwind (you can Google them). It’s astonishing how many people are getting impressive Pinterest growth with Tailwind while seeing a sharp decline in organic reach on other platforms. Hello, Facebook.

So I wanted to share an overview from Tailwind themselves about the results you should typically expect. They’ve even wrapped it up into a handy blog post and infographic.

I’ll run through the results below or you can read the full blogpost here, but first check out this infographic from Tailwind showing the results in a visual summary. Note that it’s based on results from Tailwind Users on the Plus plan which is as low as $9.99 per month.

Typical Pinterest Results of Tailwind Members - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results\

People using Tailwind for Pinterest over 6 months on the Plus Plan ($9.99 per month paid annually) saw the following average results:

  • 6.9x more saves (Repins) generated on average (ranging from 10x for accounts with fewer than 100 followers to 3.1x more saves for accounts with 10k+ followers).
  • 3.7x more followers added on average (ranging from 6x more followers for accounts with less than 100 followers to 1.8x more followers for accounts with 10k+ followers).
  • 4.2x more Pins published on average (ranging from 6x more pins published for accounts with less than 100 followers to 1.9x more for accounts with 10k+ followers).

So, it’s not just me saying that Tailwind works. There’s an excited community of Tailwind users that are seeing results, even new Pinterest users with a small number of followers. If you use Tailwind App, Pinterest is the easiest and best platform to get results on from social.

My monthly views from Pinterest have grown to between 200-250k monthly views, sometimes up to 350k. And that’s honestly without me putting in a lot of effort.

How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

Time to fess up. I have not always been as {cough} consistently vigilant as I should have been with Tailwind or Pinterest and I still got awesome results.

Pinterest is also my highest referring social media platform with an average of 60% of all traffic coming to my website from Pinterest. It has been as high as 75% in recent months. Here’s what my top 5 “social” referral sites are, as of September, 2018:

  1. Pinterest 61.7%
  2. Facebook 27.58%
  3. Twitter 8.35%
  4. LinkedIn 1.39%
  5. Pocket 0.28%

Bear in mind that after blogging for 8 years, the vast majority of my traffic is now from Google search, however the traffic that does come from social… it’s almost all Pinterest, baby!  And Tailwind plays a big part in that.

The very act of writing this post has convinced me that Pinterest (using Tailwind App) should be where I am focusing my social media efforts. It’s returning maximum results for minimal effort right now, and we have to get excited about that, right?

How does Tailwind Work?

To get started with Tailwind App, you’ll need:

  1. an active Pinterest account
  2. a free trial or active account with Tailwind.
  3. the Tailwind Browser Extension.  You can get the Tailwind Browser Extension for Chrome here.  It’s also available for Safari and Firefox.

Before we go into more detail about the browser extension and how Tailwind scheduling works, here’s a great quick overview from Tailwind:

As you can see from the video, the Tailwind extension is an important tool to start using when you use Tailwind App. If you skipped the video, here’s how it works:

Why use the Tailwind App Browser Extension?

It’s the easiest and fastest way to schedule Pins and Repins on Pinterest. Here’s what it looks like in my browser:

Tailwind Browser Extension - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

Once you have it installed, you’ll see the Tailwind Icon in your browser. Then you can use it to share content easily on Pinterest.

To recap from the first 3 minutes of the video above, you can use the Browser Extension in the following ways to share content to Pinterest from a website page or blog:

  • If you are browsing the web and see an image you want to Pin, you just hover over the image and the click on the Tailwind Schedule button that appears on the image.
  • If you have multiple images you want to Pin from one page, click the Tailwind browser extension and all the images that are on the page will show up and you can select one (or many of them). Then select Go Schedule to schedule them. The images you are selecting will highlight and also show up in the bottom corner as a set:

Adding pins to Tailwind's Smart Schedule - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

In this example, I have chosen 3 images to share at once from a post I wrote about infographic tools. Because all 3 images are related to Infographics, I can use the top field to enter infographic groups or group boards.

Each of the 3 images will then be scheduled to each of the 3 boards I select, as you can see in the image below:

Adding Multiple Pins to Tailwind Schedule - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

Once I’m ready, I just click Schedule All and my pins will be added to my pre-determined Schedule. I’ll share how I set that up in a moment.

I can also add additional boards to any of these infographics. Say for example, one of the infographics was about a particular topic, like Instagram, I could scroll down to the bottom of that image and share that image to the Instagram Tips board as well.

You can also use the Browser Extension to Pin content directly from Pinterest:

  • If you are in Pinterest and see a Pin you want to Repin, just click on the Tailwind Schedule button that appears over the pin and click to Pin/Repin it via Tailwind.
  • If you are on Pinterest and want to Repin multiple Pins on the page, you also click on the Tailwind Browser Extension and all of the pins on that Pinterest page will show up. Select one or many of them and click Go Schedule. All the Repins will show up as drafts, so you can select boards, descriptions and schedule them.

In summary, the Tailwind Browser Extension allows you to easily Pin or “save” any image to Pinterest – from your website, another website or even from Pinterest itself.

 

Scheduling Pins with Tailwind

As you can see from the video above, smarter scheduling is the cornerstone of Tailwind App.

You can schedule pins at all times, in any time zone, to reach your audience when they are online – not just when you have time to pin manually. This is what leads to reach and traffic.

Using Smart Schedule to Schedule Pins at the Best Time

It’s time to meet Tailwind’s Smart Schedule. This is basically where Tailwind uses all of its smarts, and generates the perfect schedule for you. The schedule is based on when your Pins or content performs best on Pinterest.

It’s like being handed the fast-track to results …. on a silver platter.

You can set up your Smart Schedule to post any number of times per day. You might start with 5 or 10 pins and work up from there:

 

Tailwind's Smart Schedule How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

Currently I pin around 30 times per day and when I increased the frequency, my traffic referral definitely went up. It just depends on the content you have to share. Most people might start with 5-10 pins per day on a new Tailwind account.

Here’s what my Tailwind Smart Schedule looks like currently:

Setting up weekly pinning schedule in Tailwind - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

The solid green slots are the times already set in place that I have entered myself or chosen from Tailwind’s selections. The green outlined slots are suggested times from Tailwind.  The red slots are for Tailwind’s SmartLoop (we will get to that later).

When you start your account, Tailwind will generate Timeslots at the times when your content is most likely to get reach and engagement – based on data for your account. You can also add Timeslots by:

  1. Clicking Add Time Slot and you will be able to add a custom time slot for a new timeslot and add it to your schedule.
  2. Clicking on any of the suggested times from Tailwind App to approve it and add more smart time slots to your schedule.

I can accept and add the suggested slots or I can ignore them. I can even start again and generate a whole new queue at any time.

Changing Pins in your Smart Schedule

If you want to change the order of pins it’s as easy as:

  1. Grabbing a pin in your schedule and dragging it into a new position.
  2. Hitting the Shuffle button to re-order the queue.

Scheduling Multiple Pins at One Time

As shown in the example above using the Browser Extension, if you have a post with multiple pins on it, you can share them at the same time.

Once you have chosen the boards you wish to share to (as in the example above) all you have to do is hit Schedule All and they will be added to your Smart Schedule.

And Boom… You’ve just scheduled dozens of images in one shot!

Here’s my Publisher on Tailwind App, showing that I currently have 600 pins ready to publish at times recommended by Tailwind:

Scheduled Pins in Tailwind - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

As I said, currently I have around 30 pins going out every day – from minimal effort. The majority of these pins are from my website and blog because Pinterest wants us to pin original content from our own websites. Read this post for more about advice straight from Pinterest about what to pin.

I visit Tailwind a couple of times per week to check my pins and top them up. Sometimes I don’t even have to check them if I am scheduled well ahead. This is perfect for when you are on holidays!

Once I add a bunch of pins I’ll usually hit the Shuffle Queue button and it will spread them out so the same pin is not being shared in a row to different boards.

Or you can use Interval Pinning to control this too. Let’s take a look at how that works:

Optimizing Your Schedule with Interval Pinning

If you pin to 2 or more boards, the Interval Pinning feature is handy to help prevent the same pin going out repeatedly in succession – and will spread your pins out over a period of time.

You can set the pins to go out a number of days apart (usually 24 hours apart is enough, but you can set it however you like).

When you schedule a pin using Tailwind App, you are given the option to let the Smart Schedule do the work and choose a time for you – or use Interval Pinning and set a minimum time between each pin.

Changing Interval Settings in Tailwind - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

If I hit Change Interval Settings I will see the following mini-dashboard pop up:

Setting up Interval settings in Tailwind App - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

As you can see on the image above, I have 3 options with Interval Settings:

  • Open Time Slot Option – your pins will be scheduled into your open time slots in your schedule, while complying with the minimum interval you set.
  • Exact Interval Option – this allows you to schedule pins at the exact time you choose regardless of a time slot being available. You can use this to schedule interval pins into your schedule even if it is already full. For example your entire schedule might be full but you need to schedule a pin to promote a blog post. Now you can choose a specific start time and interval to schedule your pins, regardless of existing time slots. These time slots remain fixed even if you shuffle your queue.
  • Optimize Interval Option – this allows you to use the optimized times that Tailwind suggest. It schedules your pins to the most optimal posting times without using your existing time slots. It also abides by the minimal interval time you set. These new optimized times appear as “manual” time slots.

Basically all you need to remember right now is that you can get super-controlling about how you share your Pins. And that this feature will help you to do it!

Using Tailwind for Pinterest Group Boards

For me, posting to Group Boards has been a big part of growth on Pinterest. Tailwind helps me share to Group boards so much more easily, and I use it daily. 

You can schedule pins to your own boards as well as other boards I am a member of. I have a Group Board and you can find out about how to join my Group Board below.

You should always check the Group Board Rules very carefully for any board you are a member of. This will ensure you don’t overshare pins or share the wrong type of content. Some boards have limits to the number of pins that you can share per day. Usually it’s 3 but it can be less.

Using Board Lists in Tailwind App

The easiest way to manage sharing to Pinterest Group Boards is with Board Lists in Tailwind App. To be honest, I’d struggle to keep up posting to and sharing from the boards I am a member of without them.

To set up Board Lists in Tailwind App, just choose Publisher > Board Lists in your dashboard. Then it’s super easy to add boards to lists depending on the type of content you are sharing (and the rules of the group). Here some of my board lists.

Board lists in Tailwind App - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

There are 3 ways to share to your own boards and group boards:

  1. Share manually.
  2. Share using Tailwind App’s Board Lists feature.
  3. Tailwind’s new automation feature, SmartLoop (we’ll get to that in a moment).

I use Tailwind App to share to my regular board lists too. It makes everything soooo much faster.

Join my Visual Content Creators Group Board

If you pin about visual content then check out my Visual Content Creators Group Board on Pinterest. Be sure to check the rules to see if the content is a good fit for you and you can contribute as per the board rules. If so, send us a message on Pinterest to ask to join.

Read on to find out about two of my favourite features of Tailwind!

Tailwind Tribes

It’s time to talk about my favourite feature of Tailwind, right now – Tailwind Tribes.

What are Tailwind Tribes and how do they work?

Tailwind Tribes are an awesome way to grow your Pinterest reach and traffic. I wrote a mega-post on it recently:

How to Easily Boost Pinterest Reach with Tailwind Tribes (for Free)

READ: How to Easily Boost Pinterest Reach with Tailwind Tribes

Tailwind Tribe members help each other to discover the best new content on Pinterest that will resonate with their audience – while collectively amplifying and sharing each other’s content.

Here’s a video explaining how it works:

Each Tribe member agrees to share around a common interest theme or topic. To participate in a Tribe, all you need to do is:

  1. Check the Tribe feed for content being added to review or share it.
  2. Share content from other people in your Tribe (usually more shares than pins that you contribute to the Tribe)
  3. Contribute quality content into the Tribe (from your own website or other Tribe members).
  4. Collaborate with other Tribe members to ensure there is a constant stream of great content being shared from the Tribe.

Members who share content into the Tribe get exposure to a relevant audience, and get more shares of their content. 

In some of my Tribes, I’ve had reach of 3 million or more. Here’s a snapshot of the Content Marketing Tailwind Tribe showing that I’ve received a lot of new shares and have had good Re-Shares and Repins overall since joining.

Tailwind Tribes in Tailwind App - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

Using Tailwind Tribes has bumped up the traffic from Pinterest to my site immensely. If you are using Tailwind, you will undoubtably want to use Tailwind Tribes.

Everyone benefits from being in a Tailwind Tribe. As members learn to trust the content from other members the overall quality of the Tribe content goes up.

Tailwind App also has a simple search function built into the dashboard so that you can search for new Tribes. Saying that, some tribes are better than others. Stay in Tribes that have quality content to share and leave those that don’t. It’s simple!

How Much Do Tailwind Tribes Cost?

The best part about all of this is that you can start using Tribes for free, even without a paid Tailwind Account.

But you do need to open up a Tailwind Account here.

Cool, hey? There’s a few things you should know though:

  • Every Tailwind account gets to be a member of 5 Tribes for free. You can make 30 content submissions per month. This is actually a decent amount to get started – and you’ll be able to tell if you benefit from Tribes. Play with it for free, and decide if you want to upgrade later.
  • If you need more Tribes than just 5 then you can purchase membership to more Tribes using “Power Ups”. These give you more submissions every month and start at just $9.99 per month.

Join My Tailwind Tribe!

If you are someone who posts content about visual content – from images, video and infographics to visual platforms like Pinterest and Instagram – then request to join my tribe here. It’s called the Visual Content Creators Tribe.

Be sure to check the rules for the Tribe first to see if it is a good fit for you. And remember, you will need a Tailwind Account, but joining my Tribe is free.

If you want to read more about Tailwind Tribes, you can do so here.

I thought Tailwind Tribes was the best thing since sliced bread, then I heard about Tailwind SmartLoop. Ready for more amazing features? Here we go:

Tailwind Smartloop for Pinterest Automation

SmartLoop was created after many, many requests from Tailwind users to be able to post repeated content. Its goal is to help you save time by automatically re-sharing your evergreen or seasonal Pinterest content.

It’s all about sharing your best Pinterest pins at the best time for engagement. In doing so you give your content the opportunity to get in front of people that are more likely to engage with it.

What is SmartLoop?

You can set up a collection of pins that you want to re-share – called a SmartLoop. You add pins to your SmartLoop once, and then Tailwind App re-circulates them indefinitely.

You can set up multiple SmartLoops, each with different types of content that will automatically be distributed across your schedule.

Tailwind works out the best times to share SmartLoop pins to your audience, so the hard work is done for you.

As Tailwind says, it’s Automation with the right amount of control:

SmartLoop in Tailwind App - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

Tailwind SmartLoop allows you to

  • easily see what is being pinned on the SmartLoop calendar.
  • set limits to ensure you are not spamming or breaking Group Board rules.
  • look at detailed stats on each Pin to see what is working and hone your performance.

SmartLoop is new, but so far users are setting up Loops with their most popular pinning categories as well as different seasonal categories.

If you need more information about how to set up and master SmartLoop, check out this video from the team at Tailwind:

Setting up Your First SmartLoop

From the Dashboard you can do the following:

  • manage your SmartLoop pins
  • see an overview of your SmartLoop schedule
  • edit your SmartLoop settings

To set up your new Tailwind SmartLoop you simply choose New Loop from the dashboard to create a new loop. Then you’ll be prompted to choose the Loop you want to create.

Evergreen Loops will continue to share the pins you. This is great for content that is relevant all year round.

Seasonal Loops allow you to set specific start and stop times for the Loop to post at the same time every year. This allows your content to stay relevant – no matter what season it is on Pinterest. Tailwind App will circulate your pins at the right time of year.

Setting up a Loop Type on Tailwind - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

Usually a new loop will be based around a popular topic like Green Smoothie Recipes or the type of content like Popular Blog Posts.

If you know that most of your pins in a new Loop will be going to the same boards, you can add all of them to your Default Boards. They are saved as your preferred preference, so you don’t have to choose every board from scratch every time you add a new pin to the loop. You can adjust them later.

You can also choose to loop your pins All Year Round or seasonally between certain dates when creating a new loop.

Adding your Content from Pinterest

You can easily select content to your new loop from Pinterest.  You can do this straight from the SmartLoop Dashboard in TailwindApp. You can add recent pins or most popular pins to your SmartLoop:

How to add pins from Pinterest to smartloop in Tailwind App - How to use Tailwind App for Better Pinterest Marketing Results

You can also search for specific pins or filter from Pinterest Boards. It will automatically only show pins that are from your own website.

If you sort by Most Popular pins, you can add pins that are already getting good traction on Pinterest.

Managing Your Loops in SmartLoop

Once you have all the pins you want in your loop, you can choose how often you want the loop to post. Tailwind will suggest two options:

  • Your Core Content – this content will take up a larger part of your schedule.
  • Niche Topic – this content will take up a smaller part of your schedule.

Tailwind App also shows you the number of time slots that will be added to your schedule and how long it will take to loop the pins. Your calendar will show you visually what the time slots for your content look like.

You can adjust any of this later from the Loop settings or increase or decrease how much you post and what you post from each Tailwind Loop.

Now you can step away from Pinterest and get back to creating, with confidence knowing that Tailwind will keep your schedule going.

Setting Up SmartLoop Board Rules

You can set up Board Rules in SmartLoop to control how often pins you are Looping are being published to certain boards. It lets you stay active on your favourite boards without worrying about breaking any rules or spamming your rules – you can limit the number of pins you share in a certain time period.

To create a Board Rule:

  1. Choose a Board.
  2. Select the number of days you’d like to wait before posting another pin to that board.
  3. This rule will then apply to all pins across all of your SmartLoops.
  4. Board rules only apply to SmartLoop pins, not your regular schedule pins.

You can come back into the SmartLoop dashboard anytime to check my Loops, edit Lops or even pause a Loop, which is a super handy feature. You can also click on any Loop to check in on a summary to see how your content is doing including the number of Pins published and Repins received.

How Much Does SmartLoop Cost?

SmartLoop is available on Plus Accounts and above. On a Tailwind Plus Account you get 250 SmartLoop posts included.

Each board a pin is set to loop to, counts as 1 Post. For example, a pin looping to 10 boards, counts as 10 SmartLoop Posts, regardless of how often it actually pins each months.

Tailwind Plus plan members will have the free 250 SmartLoops with the option to add additional SmartLoop Posts via Paid Power Ups starting at $9.99.

If you are a new user to Tailwind, you get to try SmartLoop during your trial.

Using Tailwind Analytics to Smash Your Pinterest Goals

One of the best features of Tailwind is the Analytics. Even on the basic Plus Plan you get access to the following statistics from your Pinterest Profile:

  1. 30 Day History Archive
  2. Basic Board Metrics like Followers, Pins, Repins and LIkes for each Board
  3. Organic Activity on Pinterest – ie no. of Pins and Pinners
  4. Track Recent Pins – track the most recent organic pins from your Domain
  5. Analyze 5000 posts – by board, category, date, keywords, hashtags and more.
  6. Pin Inspector – to see the repins of pins you’ve added to Pinterest and how each pin is performing as well as your most ppular pins.
  7. Board Insights to see what boards are performing the best in terms of Pins, Repins and Virality.

Here’s Alisa from Tailwind talking about Board Insights and how they work:

Basically Tailwind App has awesome analytics that tell you (easily) what content is resonating with your followers and Pinners.

Even on the basic paid plan you’ll get a lot of great intel about your Pinterest Marketing, so it’s definitely worth it.

 

Tailwind for Pinterest Pricing

Can I get a Free Trial of Tailwind App?

Yes!  You can sign up with my link to take Tailwind for a spin. On the free trial, you can schedule 100 pins in total, and there’s no time limit for using them.

Once your 100 pins are posted, you can choose to upgrade to a paid plan as follows:

Tailwind App Pricing

The overall Tailwind App pricing is split into a number of tiers through to Enterprise level, which is quite expensive. Let’s focus on Free and Plus as that’s where most of my audience will fall:

1. Free – You can get started with Tailwind now and pin up to 100 pins. There’s no time limit. It just depends on how long you take to pin those pins. You won’t have to enter your credit card details until the pins run out (there’s no time limit). Then you’ll be asked if you want to purchase the Plus (paid) Plan.

2. Plus – $15 USD per month (or $9.99 USD per month paid annually). It’s great value when you consider it includes:

  • Unlimited Pinning on the annual plan (400 pins if you pay monthly)
  • Advanced Scheduling using the SmartSchedule.
  • Tailwind Analytics to monitor Pin, Board and Profile results.
  • 5 Tribe Memberships plus 30 Tribe Submissions per month.
  • 250 SmartLoop Pins.

Note: You are limited to 400 scheduled pins per month on the monthly plan vs unlimited if you pay annually ($119 or $9.99 per month equivalent). It’s unusual pricing considering you pay more for monthly anyway, but just be aware of this if you want unlimited pinning.

If you want add-ons for Tailwind Tribes or SmartLoop, you can buy “Power Ups” between $9.99 and $29.99.  However, for most of my readers, Tribes will be the place to start if wanting to build Pinterest traffic.

That’s a Wrap!

I know this is a LOT of information about Tailwind App. But the idea is that you can dive back into this article at any time to find the information you need. And I kinda wish I had it all laid out like this when I started, so this one is for you!

And the best thing about Tailwind is that they have GREAT tutorials and prompts in the dashboard to help you learn how to use it, so you’ll learn easily as you go.

That’s it – now you have everything you need to change up your Pinterest Marketing with Tailwind App. I hope you enjoyed the review.
