Tribes have recently become a really popular feature of the well-known Pinterest scheduler, Tailwind. I used to be anti-Tailwind but with the Tribes feature, I’ve started to warm up to this scheduler more. In this comprehensive guide, I’m going to share how to use Tailwind tribes.
How to Effectively Navigate Tailwind Tribes
What are Tailwind Tribes?
Tribes are a feature that is very similar to a group board on Pinterest except it’s housed in Tailwind instead of Pinterest. Like group boards, each Tribe admin sets specific rules that you are to follow or you will get kicked out. Most of the time the rules are something along the lines of pinning one pin per every pin you share so they are easy to follow. I should also note that Tribes are a free feature so there’s no reason not to check them out.
The main difference between group board and Tribes is that when you’re pinning pins from the Tribes you schedule them to your boards via Tailwind’s scheduler. Once someone has shared your pin from the Tribe to their own Pinterest account then it will be live on Pinterest. Tailwind tracks your reshares, repins, and overall reach for each Tribe so you can see how well your content is performing.
How do I join a Tailwind Tribe?
Because Tribes are currently still in Beta, you have to be invited to join a Tribe. Once you receive your first invite, you can then join as many Tribes as you like and even start creating some of your own if you wish.
How to Navigate the Tailwind Tribes Interface
Once you get accepted into a Tribe, the above photo is what your interface will look like. As you can see, you can go through all of your tribes at the drop-down menu in the top left-hand corner. The “create your tribe” button is right next to the drop-down so if you’re interested in starting your own tribe you can do so by clicking there.
Continuing across the top there are tabs that show all pins in the Tribe, just the new ones, the pins you’ve shared with the tribe, others pins you’ve shared to your own Pinterest boards, and the pins that you have skipped if any.
On the left-hand side, you can view the tribe’s rules and read more about the tribe. There is also a tribe overview section that shows how many re-shares the tribe has received across the board and how many pins from the tribe have been repinned. Right below the overview section you can see how many re-shares, repins, and overall reach you have received.
The above tribe is a recent one that I have just started called Social Media Gurus, if you pin about anything related to social media, feel free to join! If you have a lifestyle blog, then you should join my lifestyle bloggers tribe.
