30-Day Pinterest Update— Does A Dedicated Pinterest Strategy Using The Tailwind App Really Work To Increase Views And Traffic? | Shaunda Necole

Sharing is caring!

One month ago, I shared this post on how to grow your blog traffic with Pinterest.

At that time, I had 67k monthly Pinterest viewers. 

Today, as I write this post, I’ve grown by over 250% with 192k monthly Pinterest viewers (soooo close to 200k)!

I’ve put in A LOT of work to grow to this number! I wouldn’t exactly say that it’s been easy. The ease comes with a consistent strategy that I can now implement like clockwork.

5 steps proven to grow your Pinterest monthly viewers:

1. I choose from my older blog posts that are timely and relevant, and I pin those images. For example, it’s Christmas time now, so I’m pinning from my older holiday blog posts from 2016 to current. I try and pin from a different blog article each day.

2. I create 1-2 text overlay images on Canva when I pin from an old or new blog post. I also add the new Canva image to the blog post. Example text overlay image below.

3. I also check my Google analytics for what people are organically looking at on my site, and I re-pin the images from those blog posts.

4. This tip is vital— I add every text overlay image I create to a tribe/Pinterest group for re-sharing. My Pinterest re-pins have increased over the past 30 days by 220%!

I’m in about 12 tribes via the Tailwind app vs. the 4 or 5 tribes I was in when I wrote this post about Pinterest 30 days ago. I plan on joining more tribes, too!

I use Canva for my text overlay. I had a graphic artist on Fiverr design custom templates for me to make sure my Pinterest images stand out from the crowd. I like having more than one template option, even though I primarily use only one of the custom designs.


I also like that my pins have a stand out style. The goal is for someone to see my content and say, “Hey, that’s a Shaunda Necole pin!”


My text overlay images are branded with my signature color red, and they also have my website on each template. Helpful in case a pin is ever “stolen” and re-shared without my source website link.

5. Lastly, I wake up and repeat steps 1-4! Actually, I mostly pin at night while watching The Real Housewives of (fill in the city— I watch them all)!

The Tailwind app is so smart! It schedules my pins and posts them when my Pinterest audience is most engaged.

These 5 steps are so much easier with the Tailwind app instead of pinning manually. It takes about 1-2 hours to walk through my steps 1-5 because I’m so detailed and precise about my strategy— Power Pinner here!
