And if you are working for it, Pin it! Pinterest is the number two driver of social traffic, and that share of referral traffic continues to grow (27% YOY as of 2017) even as Facebook reach declines (-28% YOY).

It takes nothing to join the crowd. It takes everything to stand alone. – Hans F. Hansen (Tweet this!)

Life, too, is like that. You live it forward, but understand it backward. (Tweet this!)

Sometimes we only see what’s working on Pinterest long after we’ve started doing it. That’s why it’s so important to know what to look for and how to act on what you find. Get a guided tour through Pinterest analytics here!

The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were”_blank” (Tweet this!)

And with that in mind, remember #collaborationovercompetition! Using Tailwind Tribes is an excellent way to show support to those in your own niche. And sharing their quality content can help raise your own content up in search, too!

Oh boy. And maybe you need to create your OWN quote board for those days! In fact, if you look at your Pinterest analytics at People You Reach > Interests, I bet you’ll find that your audience is into quotes of one kind or another. Can you create a Pinterest board made up of quote Pins that relate to your industry? This is a great Pinterest strategy to help you meet the needs of your audience.

One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can’t change. (Tweet this!)

One of the things we can’t change on Pinterest is the aspect of seasonality. We all see ups and downs in our traffic from Pinterest. But instead of backing off your Pinterest marketing during a slow spell, maybe spend that time investing in the future by creating new content, making new images for evergreen content, or setting up a Promoted Pin.

Even a super hero has to go to bed. (Tweet this!)

Yup, even the most dedicated of Pinners needs to take a break now and then! That’s why it’s a good idea to have a routine that involves a scheduling tool like Tailwind! Make sure you choose a tool that is an official partner of Pinterest to keep your account safe. Then you can schedule ahead for a week or a month and take that vacation you know you deserve!

Do one thing every day that scares you. – Eleanor Roosevelt (Tweet this!)

Stuck in a Pinning rut? Try something new – like hashtags, a new group board, or a new Tailwind Tribe! You never know what might make a huge impact on your Pinterest success.

A negative mind will never give you a positive life. (Tweet this!)

When changes come to Pinterest or your other marketing platforms, do you embrace them with excitement and work to find a way to use them to improve your Pinterest marketing success? It’s important to remember that Pinterest was created for users, so it’s up to us to figure out how to serve them. Keep up with all the latest changes to Pinterest by following their Facebook page.

Ask yourself if what you’re doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow. (Tweet this!)

Ah, the only way to do this is with a solid Pinterest strategy. If you feel like your Pinning has become somewhat random, perform an audit and freshen up your strategy with this guide.

I am strong because I’ve been weak. I am fearless because I’ve been afraid. I am wise because I’ve been foolish. (Tweet this!)

Managing a Tailwind Tribe? Give people with smaller followings a chance if they have great content, but don’t accept join requests from people whose content won’t thrive in your Tribe.

Dressing well is a form of good manners. -Tom Ford (Tweet this!)

Fashion is huge on Pinterest (you know this!) but what if your business has nothing to do with fashion? Well, you could Pin your fashion Pins to a secret board, but is there a way you could work it in somehow? For instance, if your business is for professional women, you could have a board for “What to Wear to Work” which would be completely relevant! Get more ideas for expanding your reach with a Pinterest strategy here.

Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game. -Babe Ruth (Tweet this!)

Feel like you’re “late to the game” on Pinterest? No such thing! Most of the activity on Pinterest takes place in search, so you don’t need to have thousands of followers for your content to reach a wide audience. Get started today!

If ALL of your Pins were a runaway success on Pinterest, how would you ever improve? Learn from the successes and failures of your content and creative so you can do better next time. Understanding Pinterest and Tailwind analytics is the first step towards better Pinterest marketing.

FAIL: First Attempt In Learning. (Tweet this!)

Missing links, broken links, images with illegible text. We’ve all done it as we learn. Don’t worry too much about deleting old Pins, just move forward with better, more thoughtful Pinning.

People who love to eat are always the best people. (Tweet this!)

Pinterest isn’t the place to share photos of your dinner – unless you’re also sharing the recipe! Recipe Pins which use Rich Pins give people a chance to see if they have all the ingredients needed – increasing the chance they’ll stick around on your site!

How glorious the splendor of a human heart that trusts that it is loved. -Brennan Manning (Tweet this!)

Missing a feeling of community on Pinterest? You can send Pins to your friends using the little Send button. Include a note to make it even more personal. Leave a comment or a photo on a Pin you tried. And join a Tailwind Tribe for even more sharing.

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. (Tweet this)

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but no one likes a copycat! Protect your work with a little bit of subtle branding, like a small logo or your URL. Allow yourself to be inspired by the work of others, but always put your own spin on things. That keeps Pinterest fresh and makes your Pins easy to recognize in the feed. Learn how to make beautiful Pins.

Live, travel, adventure, bless, & don’t be sorry. (Tweet this)

Don’t forget that Pinterest is for users – and that includes YOU! Get back to some personal Pinning. Not just for fun and inspiration, but so you can get back into the mindset of Pinners so you can serve them better. Create a secret board on your business account and collect Pins on a topic you’re excited about right now. Notice what catches your eye, what makes you save or click. You’ll find it gives your Pinterest strategy a new twist – a personal one!
