Do’s and Don’ts to Be Successful in Tailwind Tribes for Bloggers
Do Follow the Rules!
When you join a tribe, you must take the time to read the rules! If a tribe’s rules are to share one for every pin you add, then make sure you share another blogger pin BEFORE adding yours.
This post contains an affiliate link or two which means we could receive a few pennies to keep sharing these great tips for you.
As an admin of a large tribe, I quickly go through and remove bloggers who do not reciprocate. I do not give warnings or let you continue to abuse the tribe for weeks while waiting for you to do your shares.
Honestly, I do not have the time to babysit other members, and I want my tribe to be active and fair. And, I know I am not the only admin who does this.
Don’t Share Square or Horizontal Pins
Frankly… they will not get shared, and you are just wasting your time! ALWAYS share long pins that are approximately 735 pixels wide by at least 1102 pixels long. Personally, all my pins are at least 735×1335. I find the extra length gives them little more views than the 1102 length.
Do Have Beautiful Pins
Bright and colorful pins tend to the best on Pinterest. And if a pin does well on Pinterest it will do well in a Tailwind Tribe. Also, avoid using too much free stock photography! Those images become overused, and you want your pins to look unique for you. Here is my favorite stock photography site and the images are $1 each!
If you need help learning to edit your photos I recommend this course. It is a no-nonsense approach that made a huge improvement to my photography skills.[clickToTweet tweet=”5 Do’s and Don’ts to Be Successful in #Tailwind Tribes for #Bloggers!” quote=”5 Do’s and Don’ts to Be Successful in Tailwind Tribes for Bloggers!”]
Don’t Spam a Tribe
Personally, I do not share more than three pins in a tribe on any given day. You just annoy other tribe users, and this practice will lead to them not sharing any of your pins.
Also, the three pins I add will not be the same blog post. This a HUGE pet peeve of mine! Yes, it is great to make several pins for each blog post, but sharing the same post more than once per day is annoying. Break it up! Wait at least a week before you add a duplicate pin to that tribe.
Don’t Share Affiliate Link Pins Unless Allowed
Most tribes do not allow you to share affiliate links in their tribes. And for me, it is easier not share any affiliate links in tribes than to try and remember who allows it.
