How To Use Tailwind for Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest
Share with friends
Tailwind has recently moved their plans from separate Instagram and Pinterest plans (where you had to create an account for either Instagram OR Pinterest… and pay more) to plans which include access to both Instagram AND Pinterest.
So, now Tailwind pricing is much, much more affordable. And you can manage your social media far better with their new pricing schedule.
I use Tailwind Communities religiously to amplify my blog posts out to other bloggers who share similar interests to me. They work! and I’m finding more and more that the engagement is getting better and better. Just be patient! and be consistent!
There are a tonne of great Tailwind Communities that you can join. Some of my favourite ones (by niche) are listed here. You can also read all about how to make the most out of Tailwind Communities here.

Can you schedule to Facebook using Tailwind?
Facebook scheduling on Tailwind? You betcha! I also get asked a lot of you can Post to Facebook from Tailwind and the good news is – YES! … Tailwind now allows you to not only post to Instagram and Pinterest… but also schedule your posts to Facebook.
You can now also schedule and post to all your social networks direct from Tailwind with one genius click! (Tailwind is rolling out these changes over the coming weeks.. so bear with them if you do not have access yet!)
Tailwind has also recently launched Tailwind Copilot as well! Tailwind Copilot is a super cool tool that will help you create a detailed marketing plan for all your social media activities. Such a GREAT tool! I’m totally in love! Tailwind Copilot helps you create an overarching CONTENT PLAN! OMG – so, so, good! … they have created something really intuitive and meaningful here and it can also help you with your email marketing as part of this overarching marketing strategy (hint: this one’s gold!).
Tailwind for Instagram
Tailwind is super useful if Instagram is your channel of choice to reach your audience. Much like the setup for Tailwind for Facebook, scheduling Instagram posts in Tailwind is a breeze.
The best thing about Tailwind for Instagram is the ability to add hashtags to posts in the comments. Simply tick the box to move your copy from captions to the first comment.
You can now also schedule reels and carousels to Instagram using Tailwind. Super easy!
Tailwind new pricing
On the new Tailwind pricing, their Pro plan is now only $9.99 – whereas prior, it was $9.99 for only one of either Instagram or Pinterest. So much better right!
You can upgrade to their Advanced plan, to get even more posts for Instagram and Pinterest and pay less than if you were subscribing to their old plans for each.
Tailwind Create is included in all pricing plans too. So, instead of having to add on Tailwind Communities and Tailwind Create to your plan, it’s all included! Smart move Tailwind!
Tailwind Create lets you create multiple Pinterest Pins instantly… just like magic! We all know the benefit of creating fresh Pins for Pinterest and now it’s so much easier (and cheaper) with Tailwinds new plans. They measured engagement on Pins created with and without create and the difference was mind blowing! Look at that graph!
I guess one of the best new options with the plan changes is the fact that their Max plan now caters to Community Managers, Social media manager and Virtual assistants managing multiple accounts.
You can now manage up to 3 Instagram and 3 Pinterest accounts on their new Max plan with unlimited posts, and unlimited communities. Making life SO MUCH EASIER if you’re a VA or social media manager.
Tailwind AI Ghostwriter
Tailwind has come up with a super cool new feature.. and I’m LOVING it !
AI writing has become more and more popular with bloggers and content writers and Tailwind has come up with a way to help ease your pain when writing Pin descriptions.
And oh my this one’s good!
You can now write unique and highly searchable Pin descriptions easily and automatically, like magic!
Simply tap Ghost write for me 👻 to get started in your draft content tab.
Choose what you want to write about, lifestyle content, a product, a sale etc. Then, enter what the Pin is about.
You can easily now add in specific keywords or phrases you want to target, plus a call to action and then voila! Hit Generate description.
Your Pin description automatically generates. You’ll get 3 to choose from! You can then choose to like it or try again if the content is not quite right!
Tailwind AI Ghostwriter will get you most of the way there, then you can edit to tweak.
This feature is a game changer! And will definitely help your reach on Pinterest
AI content generation is super cool and can help in so many marketing situations.
I’m loving this new feature! And Tailwind is just getting started! Soon, hopefully we’ll see help with writing Instagram captions and emails too!

I’m loving this move by Tailwind to be far far more competitive in their pricing with the other social media schedulers out there. This will no doubt make more people take a second look at Tailwind as their choice of social media scheduler.
