Instagram now has more than 1 billion active monthly users.


Those billion users are looking for awesome new content. Why shouldn’t you be the one to give it to them?


Continue reading this article to find out how Tailwind can help you capitalize on these 1 billion activate Instagram users.


Is Tailwind a good Instagram marketing tool?


Pinterest Marketing Tool Tailwind Adds Instagram Marketing to Its Product Suite


I’ve been loving using Tailwind for my Pinterest marketing strategies, but now they’ve jumped in the Instagram game. It’s more than a scheduling tool for Instagram.


I’ve used another tool to help me auto-post on Instagram, but it didn’t exactly auto-post. It sent me a reminder. Lol, I didn’t want a reminder! I wanted it to do the work.


Tailwind for Instagram will auto-post for you as long as you make your Instagram account a business account. A business account is free and easy so no biggie there.

Hashtag Love and Hate


Hashtags are very important when you want to get noticed by people outside of your following on Instagram. It is pretty common for people to follow hashtags on Instagram just like they do accounts.


Staying up with the latest trends in digital marketing will allow you to see what Instagram strategies are most effective.


One of the most annoying things ever is trying to find the right hashtags for the posts. The reason it is annoying is not only because it is frustrating to figure out which hashtags people are searching for but also because it is hard to figure out which hashtags don’t have too much competition for views.


Now there is an Instagram hashtag finder. This hashtag finder provides an amazing UX that saves you time and energy.


I’ve used it on my mobile and the desktop platform.


Both make it really easy to find the hashtags that are best for the pic you’re scheduling.


You also get a counter that makes sure you don’t go over the max of 30 hashtags. ;-D

Check out this short video I did for you. 🙂



Instagram is a goldmine for bloggers and business owners, but it has been a constant pain for me because of the scheduling and finding hashtags.


In comes Tailwind hashtag finder to save the day. ;0)


I’m only getting into the basics on this part of the tool and creating content for all of the postings I am going to be doing so lookout for an updated posted with huge results. lol

I started with a free trial, and now I use the Pinterest scheduling tool both interval scheduling, the Smartloop and queue. I’ve done a little on the Instagram side of things but nothing close to what I know I am going to do.


Look out! lol

    Tailwind sounds really cool. I totally agree with you, finding hashtags for instagram is really annoying. I often use old ones of mine and then when I don’t get so many likes I regret it!  I’m definitely going to check it out, I’m in search of anything that will help my social media accounts because I find them hard to balance. How much does Tailwind cost after the free trial?

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 8:41 pm


      If the old hashtags do well, I save them in the hashtag list on Tailwind but I like to test out different ones to see how they do. :0)

      There are a lot of options with Tailwind depending on which parts you want to use. If you do the Instagram PLUS it’s $120 for the annual plan.

      If there are any training videos you’d like me to create, let me know and I’d be glad to make them. 😀


  2. Daniel on November 24, 2018 at 8:30 pm

    Thank you Jessica for such very helpful article. I think that social sharing is very important if we want to grow our business but a lot of people forget about that. I am currently using Pinterest and I am using it a lot because it is great income of traffic and convert well. I don’t have much experience with Instagram but will learn more about it.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 8:36 pm


      Oh yes! I love Pinterest for growing traffic. It has been really good to me. I do find there are major traffic peaks when I put a new piece of content out there. If I slack off, I am done for… lol Enjoy learning about Instagram. It’s awesome. And yes… YAY for Tailwind. lol

  3. Tom on November 24, 2018 at 8:36 pm


    Tailwind looks pretty good. In previous job roles I have used scheduling software for social media and it saves lots of time. Now I have my own business, I could really do with using something similar for myself now. In the past I have used Grum, have you used this, as I would like to know how it compares?

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 8:43 pm


      Hey there… hmm… Grum? I haven’t heard of them. I’ve used Buffer, Meet Edgar, HootSuite, Social Jukebox and a few others but Tailwind is super smart. They not only autopost your stuff but they find the ideal time to post for YOUR audience which allows your content to get more reach and build momentum. They also have a recycling feature for Pinterest. Obviously – I am a fan. hahah

  4. Cathy Cavarzan on November 24, 2018 at 8:42 pm

    Wonderful I have just started with pinterest and instagram . I have recently also heard of tailwind but did not know how it worked.After reading your article on tailwind I may just give it a try I never knew they had a free trail. Do you know how much a regular membership for tailwind is monthly and does that cost cover both pinterest and instagram?

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 8:45 pm


      Cool. Good to hear. Feel free to drop your handles and I will be glad to connect with you there. 😀

      All of the Tailwind products are very segmented so you don’t have to pay for anything you don’t want. If  you just wanted the Tailwind for Instagram for an annual subscription it is $120 which can be recouped pretty quickly if you’re selling things on Instagram.

      Let me know any other questions you have and I’ll be glad to help. 🙂

  5. Scott Hinkle on November 24, 2018 at 9:45 pm

    Thanks for the great post.  I’m in desperate need when it comes to social media marketing help in general.  Would Tailwind be your first go-to app for someone like me who’s on, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinedIn and Google+? Or is there another tool or set of tools you’d recommend?  Right now I manually share my posts to each one manually.

    I’m going to check out your Pinterest Marketing Strategies link now.  Do you have similar posts for other social media platforms?

    Thanks again,


    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 9:58 pm


      I would say pick one of the platforms to automate first. Get into the swing of things with one and then move on to the others. Pinterest would be the first one I recommend since pins can go viral so quickly.

      Tailwind doesn’t currently have sharing solutions for the other platforms. Go with Buffer for the others and Instagram and Pinterest you can use Tailwind.

      I am working on guides for the other platforms. People keep asking me so I need to get them done. lol =0)

      Thanks for stopping by!


      • Scott Hinkle on November 26, 2018 at 9:18 pm

        I think Pinterest is where I’ll focus first.

        I look forward to your other guides, once you have them posted!

        • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 26, 2018 at 9:37 pm

          Awesome, Scott. Now you’re putting me to work. bahahah =)

  6. Henry on November 24, 2018 at 9:49 pm

    Hi, Jessica! Thank you very much for this recommendation! I want to start actively using both Pinterest and Instagram for my site! And I had heard a bit about Tailwind and decide to research. I appreciate you have shared your experience with this suite. I greatly respect each of the suggestions you make on your site, so it’s comforting to see you have a good review about Tailwind.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 9:59 pm


      Yeah, I had heard about Tailwind a few times but before they had the Instagram solution and before I was using Pinterest. When I got into Pinterest I did their free trial and got hooked. lol

  7. mrsjesse on November 24, 2018 at 10:02 pm

    Good post Jessica I agree we need tools that makes our job easier not reminders:) I hit and miss at Instagram because I too find it time consuming and frustrating trying to figure out what hashtags to use. Thank you for the suggestion of the Tailwind tool I don’t think I have heard of it. I will certainly take a look at it.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 10:21 pm


      Yes, it can take a lot of time to post on the various platforms. Besides for that it can be ineffective if the wrong hashtags are used or if content is shared at the wrong time. Enjoy Tailwind and let me know any parts you want help with as I am going to be creating some more tutorial videos.


  8. Margarette on November 24, 2018 at 10:05 pm

    Tailwind sounds like an effective marketing tools once of get the hang of it.  I like your article.  I’m always looking for ways to improve my social networking profiles and this sounds like something I should try.  I like the way you break down your site.  It’s easy to navigate.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 10:23 pm


      Thanks girl. I try to do my best to make it easy to get around. 🙂

  9. Nate Stone on November 24, 2018 at 11:22 pm

    Hi Jessica, 

    Interesting post, I’m planning on moving to the Instagram platform shortly to start promoting my website articles, I already use a scheduled posting tool for twitter so something like that for Instagram sounds idea. I must admit pinterest hadn’t crossed my mind as an option so I’ll look in to that as well. Does this tool provide any kind of analytics in terms of number of people engaging etc?

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 11:39 pm


      That’s awesome. Congrats on your Twitter marketing. And yes, Tailwind provides different levels of analytics for both Instagram and Pinterest tools. The insights are very helpful for future content creation.

  10. Pardeap on November 24, 2018 at 11:30 pm

    I’m totally new to this.  I don’t even have an instagram account. After reading your article, I have decided to look more into it and will create an instagram account. I have so much catching up to do with social media.  How can I promote my business on instagram?  If you could please give a brief guide. Thanks

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 24, 2018 at 11:37 pm


      Congrats on taking action and getting your Instagram account. I am creating an Instagram guide soon, but for – get used to the platform and learn how it operates before trying to market there. As with any content marketing, your goal is to provide value and direct them to valuable resources.

  11. victor lavaza on November 25, 2018 at 5:17 am

    Hi Jessica, I have not joined Pinterest yet, there have been just too many social media platforms I got overwhelmed. Tailwind sounds like an awesome tool that I could use on my Instagram account, just need to make it a business account as advised by you. I am going to use the tool and will be back with a feedback and questions if any arises soon enough.

    Many thanks for the information and best regards

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 25, 2018 at 1:47 pm


      Getting on a lot of platforms can be overwhelming so smart choice on focusing and learning one platform at a time. Enjoy Tailwind and we look forward to hearing about your experience. 🙂

  12. jackvo29 on November 26, 2018 at 12:12 am

    Thanks for your detailed post. Tailwind sounds like a great tool for Instagram. Finding hash tags for Instagrams is surely painful. Have you ever used any other similar software like Hootsuite before? It kinda offers same functionality but it works across almost all major social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter…

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 26, 2018 at 1:07 am


      Yeah… I’ve used Hootsuite but it doesn’t have all of the add-ins and capabilities Tailwind has. Plus… it is really cumbersome so I never wanted to use the thing. lol 😛 I do know some people that love HS though.

  13. Danny on November 26, 2018 at 9:37 pm

    I’ve seen quite a few people talking about Tailwind recently and I must admit that it does have me interested. The idea of automating your workflow is such an attractive one that IF Tailwind can live up to the praise, I’d be happy to try it out. The sign up page gives you the option to sign up through either Instagram or Pinterest; can you use Tailwind for both at the same time? The pricing doesn’t look too unrealistic either. Thanks for this!

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 26, 2018 at 10:13 pm


      Yup, you can use Tailwind for Instagram and for Pinterest. There are different powerups if you need more functions and all kinds of cool things. The base price keeps it affordable for everyone. =D

  14. Sujandar Mahesan on November 26, 2018 at 9:40 pm

    Pinterest Marketing Tool Tailwind sounds really cool. I read through the whole article and also went through the video you published. It seems like an useful tool for all the Instagram users. The only question I have is how much will it cost after the trial ends?

    Other than thank you so much for writing this and sharing it with us.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 26, 2018 at 10:12 pm


      Depending on if you want to do monthly or annually it’s around $120 a year. Not bad at all for the headaches it saves. lol

  15. Chris on November 26, 2018 at 9:41 pm

    Thak you for this really useful post. I have been looking into tailwind as I feel that i need to get more involved in Pinterest. This is the first time that I have heard that can be used for instagram aswell. it seems like a really useful tool,just yet another thing to get my head around!

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 26, 2018 at 10:09 pm


      lol yeah… I know it can feel like there is always something to learn. Thankfully Tailwind makes it really easy to learn through their training modules.:0)

  16. Jag Randa on November 26, 2018 at 9:43 pm

    I’ve been hearing a lot about tailwind. Thanks for bringing it to my attention again, I think I’m going to get started with it. On Pinterest I’ve been posting without any sort of schedule. I know that in the world of blogging content scheduling is very important. I hope to be able to create a proper posting schedule with tailwind. I love that it’s for Instagram as well. It’s hard enough having to post content every day, this type of program will make it at least easier to take care of the social media side.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 26, 2018 at 10:08 pm


      If that is what you’re looking for, you’re going to LOOOVE Tailwind. You don’t even have to use your brain for scheduling. hahha… lol The “que” features allows you to use the smart scheduler to post as many times per day as you want.

      Let me know how you like it. =D

  17. julienne murekatete on November 26, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    Hello Jessica,

    Thank you for sharing with us this great post on Tailwind .It is a wise way to try different social networks to grow our online business.I’m always looking for ways to improve my social networking and I found Tailwind Instagram Auto-posting and scheduling tool interesting and I want to have it a try.

    Best regards

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 26, 2018 at 10:00 pm


      You’re so right. If you put all of your eggs in one basket, your business isn’t safe. If you build a following on multiple platforms, you can funnel those people into your own community as well. 🙂

  18. Suzi on November 26, 2018 at 9:48 pm

    Oh my goodness!  This is exactly what I have been looking for:). I have been active on Instagram for about a month now, but have been so confused as to how to go about promoting my business, without seeming too pushy. I also see everyone posting hashtags, but haven’t been sure which ones to use. I’m going to check into Tailwind to see if it’s right for me!  Thank you so much for this very informative post:)



    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 26, 2018 at 9:56 pm


      That’s awesome. Let me know how your Tailwind experience goes. I think it is pretty cool they give a free trial. 😀

  19. Stephen on November 26, 2018 at 10:36 pm

    Hi Jessica,

    I recently created an account with Instagram because I heard from  a  lot of online marketing gurus that they are making a lot of money out of this social platform. So, I will not doubt that it is indeed a Goldmine social platform, especially since many more people are using this platform. 

    But I could not continue with my regular post as I felt it was time consuming and even having to think about which post to write every single day plus that image to post there was a big issue for me. In for the past 3 months, I have not been active in Instagram. So, when I saw your review on Tailwind and the things it can do for you, I was very happy.

    In actual fact, I’m going to try it for FREE now as you recommended and then if I see it usefulness, I go ahead and buy it. Thanks a lot for sharing this useful information with us.


    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 29, 2018 at 1:58 pm


      You’re most welcome. I also look forward to creating some trainings that will help everyone do more with these tools. 🙂

  20. Barry on November 27, 2018 at 2:14 am

    Hello Jessica. I thank you for sharing your experiences about PinterestMarketing Tool Tailwind.

    I really needed lots of social media marketing strategies to implement on my website to be launched few days from you. Hash tags are awesome to get more views. I love the auto post feature and I will definitely check it out.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 29, 2018 at 1:57 pm


      Awesome! I hope you enjoy their free trial offer. B-)

  21. Isaac on November 30, 2018 at 12:14 am

    Hey Jessica, first of all, great article, great read! Very informative. I don’t have a pinterest account yet, but I heard it’s somewhere up there with facebook and instagram, so I am going to give it a try.

    Is pinterest the same as instagram by the way? because thats what I heard from my friends, they say it is almost the same, the difference being pictures, pinterest is loaded with pictures. I don’t have a instragram either, do you think I should open up a instagram first or a pinterest?

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 30, 2018 at 12:32 am


      Glad you enjoyed it. Pinterest is like Google with photos attached and the ability to use hashtags. Instagram and Google had a baby. 😛

      Instagram has more users but it really depends on who your target audience is as to which platform you should choose to use first.

  22. Chrissie Spurgeon on November 30, 2018 at 12:15 am

    The Tailwind tool sounds really interesting.

    I am really just getting going with Instagram and Pinterest, so it looks as though this tool would be really useful to me.

    `You have so many followers, so I wondered if it would be better to wait until I have more followers before I use a tool like Tailwind? How often do you post by the way?

    I very much like the sound of the hashtag tool, I would agree that it would save loads of time.

    I found your video really useful.

    Very many thanks for this information.

    Chrissie 🙂

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 30, 2018 at 12:19 am


      The way to get followers is by using tools like this. It’s the “unfair” advantage. 😉 I would recommend getting started right away if you don’t have a lot of followers.

      With the Pinterest poster sometimes I schedule 30 – 100 a day but that doesn’t take me long to schedule with how the tool works. B-)
