Tailwind tribes have been a great asset to me for growing my traffic over on my blog, The Irish Twins Momma. Once you understand Tailwind and a bit about SEO your site too can take off. I wanted to help you today understand Tailwind tribes so you can use them to grow your followers and traffic to your websites as well.
What is Tailwind Tribes:
Tribes, at their most basic level, are groups of users within Tailwind. Tribes are a place where like pinners can add content that everyone in the group can easily access.
The same concept of a group board applies: you can invite and manage users; any user can upload content; all users have access to that content to pin to their other boards. The beautiful thing about having Tribes is that you can gather high-quality content, pre-sorted, and quickly add it to your queue. One of the most significant features is the way you can share content with other like-minded pinners.
You can share your content with your Tribe, and, hopefully, they will then pin that content to a variety of boards that may be outside your current circle of exposure in the Pinterest world.
Why should I use Tailwind Tribes:
The first of which is the ease of use in terms of gathering quality content. Tailwind is an excellent service that aims to make life easier and more successful for its users. Tribes make it easy to assemble pre-sorted content. The second reason, I suggest you hurry up and get on board the Tribes bandwagon is for the exposure of your content. All of these other bloggers and business people are LOOKING FOR YOUR CONTENT. They want quality, beautiful, delicious-looking, creative content to fill their queues!
Joining Tribes that have awesome pinners gathering content can help your pins gain momentum. Finally, Tailwind Tribes are a great way to gather viral content for your boards that will result in more followers and traffic to your website.

Watch The Tribe Rules:
– The red bubble to the left shows how many times you have had a pin repinned within that tribe.
-The green bars show how active that tribe is.
– The gray and green capsule shows you how many you have shared with the tribe, and then on the greenside, it shows how many you have pinned of other people’s content.
– If there is red instead of green, then you are not following the tribe rules, which are often to keep a 1:1 ratio between your pins being shared with the sharing of other’s pins.
** Be sure to read the tribe rules when joining**
