I hope you’re all doing OK as we march forward with quarantine and haven’t given up on your online business.
Many of us with online businesses are dealing with income loss and uncertainty but we have to press on as we adapt our business.
I was very excited to learn my favourite Pinterest and Instagram scheduling tool, Tailwind, announced a $1 Million Relief Program to help online creators during this period.
I discussed Tailwind and Tailwind Plus briefly in 4 Time-Saving Social Media Scheduling Tools for Solopreneurs and Freelancers.
The $1,000,000 relief program from Tailwind provides free access to the full Tailwind suite of tools for 3 months.
Additionally, the program includes three “pay it forward” grants for applicants to send to those in need in their community.
How to Apply for the Grant
- Set up your free Tailwind account HERE.
- After setting up your free Tailwind account, fill out the relief program application found on Tailwind.
Applications are reviewed in the order they are received so be sure to apply ASAP. Deadline for application is May 8th.
Pinterest and Instagram usage are at an all-time high right now so this is the perfect time to improve your Pinterest & Instagram marketing with Tailwind – for free.
Remember to set up your free Tailwind account HERE before you apply for the grant.
If you’re still wondering about Tailwind and Tailwind Plus, I’ve broken down a little bit more about what it does below.
What Does Tailwind App Do?
Tailwind App helps you to schedule your social media content for months in advance.
You can use Tailwind with Pinterest and Instagram and you can add as many other accounts as you want but they are all charged separately.
Tailwind is an official partner for Pinterest so your Pinterest account is in tandem with your Tailwind account.
With Tailwind, you can schedule pins throughout the day and Pinterest loves that.
But that’s not the only awesome thing about Tailwind. Tailwind also provides the following tools:-
Tailwind insights let you see how your pins are performing, your follower growth, the engagement rate of your pins, how your boards are performing and much more.
You can join up to 5 Tailwind Tribes for free. Tailwind Tribes are similar to Pinterest group boards.
However, Pinterest groups boards are a tad difficult to manage while Tailwind trigged are more interactive and engaging.
With Tailwind Tribes, members are equally committed to each other’s success. It’s easier for you to find pins to schedule and vice versa.
Tailwind Tribes helps you increase your reach and you can see the progress right on your dashboard so you can tweak accordingly.
There’s a learning curve to Tailwind but once you figure it out, you will be shocked that you ever blogged without it.
How Do I Sign Up for Tailwind?
You can sign up for a free Tailwind account HERE. Your first 100 pins and 30 Instagram posts are free.
There is no time limit on your trial and you don’t need a credit card to sign up for the free trial.
How Much is Tailwind a Month?
Tailwind starts from $14.99/month after the trial period but if you pay for the year upfront, you get a discounted rate of $9.99/month.
If you have any questions about using Tailwind, you can ask in the comments section.
I will write an even more in-depth article about Tailwind later on. This was just to announce the $1 Million Relief Program.
Remember, it ends May 8th so apply for the grant ASAP.
