Now that you have your free trial, let’s talk about how much Tailwind costs after the free trial offer.


For small business owners or soloprenuers like me, let’s focus on the Tailwind PLUS. You don’t need the Professional or Enterprise edition so don’t faint when you see $799.00/mo. HOLY COW!


Tailwind PLUS for Pinterest base cost $9.99/mo when paid annually or $15/mo when paid monthly


Tailwind for Instagram base cost is $120 when paid annually. I don’t get the option for monthly because I am on the annual plan with Pinterest so I am guessing it is right at $15/mo like Pinterest so to get both it’s $30 a month if you play monthly.


To get the free trial of Tailwind, you have to use your Pinterest or Instagram account to sign up. Your accounts will be linked and you can see limited analytics if you only have the free plan or PLUS plan.

What Else Do You Have to Pay for With Tailwind for Pinterest?


I’m not sure if they have add-ons for their Instagram part of Tailwind but there are some pretty cool things you add-on to your Pinterest Tailwind account.


There is a cool feature within Tailwind called Tribes. These tribes are other Tailwind users that are committed to helping each other build their Pinterest followings.


Tailwind tribes are pretty neat.


tailwind tribesDifferent Tailwind tribes have different rules but most require you to repin 2 other pins for every 1 pin that you add. Using Tailwind tribes allow you to reach audiences outside of your own so you can get more traffic and people that didn’t know about you or your product before can learn about you.


You get 5 tribes included in your Tailwind PLUS membership and you can post up in Tribes per month. (Do not get this confused with how many pins you can post through Tailwind scheduler – that’s unlimited!)


You can get access to additional tribes, additional tribe submissions and you can even get unlimited tribes. These PowerUps cost anywhere from $59/yr to $359/yr.


You can also get everything for Pinterest (including the Smartloops that allows you a more set and forget strategy for Pinterest marketing) for $39.98/mo billed annually. I just found out about that option. Say what! UNLIMITED!? hahah.. yes, please!

    I’m not there yet, I mean I don’t have money to pay Tailwind to advertise, lol!.

    I’m a newbie and still slowly building my site to attract visitors. I know I have heard that Pinterest gives lots of traffic.

    I will read some of your posts about this and I will learn how to use it.

    Thanks for this great information.

      The free trial might be something you want to look into. They have a lot of great training on Pinterest as well. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  2. Sam Frederiksen on November 29, 2018 at 8:57 pm

    Thank you for this great article I will be reading a couple more from your website as well. I have heard of this before, and the more I hear the more I am interested, However I still in the starting stages of my blog, finances are tight to say the least. What happens after the trial is ended? Sam Frederiksen webmaster at bestplace2

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on November 29, 2018 at 9:04 pm


      Hey there. I hope you enjoy the articles. 🙂 After the trial ends some of the features no longer work but otherwise, your account kind of chills until you want to use it. No penalty for not moving forward.

    Thanks for sharing the Tailwind prices.    I am just now in the planning stages for amping up the effort that I am putting towards Pinterest.   I do like the idea of the tribes.   

    I agree, that the professional addition for $799 is WAY, WAY out of my budget for now.   I look forward to the day that it is a necessary and reasonable cost for me.    

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on December 7, 2018 at 11:42 pm


      Hey there. Thanks for stopping by. Good to hear from you. Pinterest is an awesome way to get attention for your blog and I look forward to seeing you in tribes. ;-D

    Hello again Jessica. I decided to explore your website after reading your article regarding Social JukeBox. I saw that you also mentioned Tailwind and I decided to explore that website. Tailwind seems decent and definitely would help with engaging your social networks. Pinterest and Instagram of course.

    I am still thinking if this kind of investment is good investment. Can you tell me your honest experience with this platform? Is it really that worth?

    Thank you.


    • Jessica Lauren Vine on December 8, 2018 at 4:04 pm


      Good to see you again. 🙂

      With Tailwind, you get your content in front of a lot of people, especially if you’re using Tribes. If you have high-quality content, people will not only read it but as with the culture of Pinterest, they will repin it. When they repin it to a public board, that board’s followers can see it and they may repin. 

      My favorite was when I created the article about 7 Blogging Mistakes and it got 1,000 repins/shares within a couple of days.

      If you are committed to creating high-quality content and great pin images then yes – it’s totally worth your money.

    Hi Jessica, thanks for your interesting post. I have just start to use Tailwind. I am still on the free trial but I have been curious to know the pricing after the free trial is done. So now I know! The pricing for the basic levels looks reasonable for what it gives you. From my limited experience of Tailwind it looks a very useful addition to Pinterest and Instagram. Tribes is a good idea too as you say as it forces each member to get the other members’ pins out there.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on December 8, 2018 at 4:01 pm


      That’s awesome. Now with SmartLoop, you can keep your content going out consistently even without doing more post. New content does get top priority but if you’re going on vacation or don’t have the time to post new pins, this is a life saver withing Tailwind. =)

  6. Karina on December 7, 2018 at 11:49 pm

    Hi there. I really enjoyed this post, I will go an read your post on tailwind and what it is shortly. I haven’t done this with my website, but will most definitely give it a go – seems like a no-brainer to boost traffic.

    Also, I really like your style of writing – very personal and witty! Well done and I wish you all the success 🙂



    • Jessica Lauren Vine on December 8, 2018 at 3:59 pm


      Aww… Thanks girl. =-) I love writing about this stuff. lol Let me know how your Tailwind experience goes. It’s always cool to hear back from people.

    Hi there Jessica,

    Thanks for great article and useful info, I’m new to Pinterest and Tailwind and still figuring out how all that stuff works so your post is very helpful. All those add ons are pretty cool, only when you are just starting and there is no income coming in all this nice things add up to pretty hefty sum.

    Keep the good work and best wishes.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on December 8, 2018 at 1:54 pm


      Thanks for stopping by. :0) Yes, in the beginning it can be annoying to have to put out money, but such is business. *sigh* The fun part comes when you start seeing a return and then the profits start to increase.

      Whenever I don’t feel like paying for something, I just visualize profits… lol 

  8. jessie palaypay on December 7, 2018 at 11:54 pm

    If I have multiple websites, does that mean I have to pay for two separate tailwind accounts or can you get some sort of membership where i can manage two different Pinterest accounts?

    I am really starting to understand the potential of Pinterest as far as massive website traffic is concerned. I have been doing traditional SEO and realize there is definitely a lot more.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on December 8, 2018 at 12:00 am


      Hey there. Great question. You can have multiple Pinterest accounts on your Tailwind, but you have to pay for each of them. They have their own scheduling area, own tribes and all of that. 🙂

      I love traditional SEO, but I am not a fan of having all of my eggs in one basket.

    Am just in the process of exploring Instagram for marketing a website, so the information here is very valuable and I will be signing up for the free trial. Do you have other training available for Instagram.

    I do have a Pinterest account, but only use it for collecting photos. Which, of Pinterest or Instagram, do you consider most valuable in marketing a product based website?

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on December 8, 2018 at 1:53 pm


      Awesome. I don’t have a full Instagram training up yet – but it’s coming. I am just creating the Twitter tutorials that were requested…lol 🙂

      Pinterest is a lot of fun to collect photos and great ideas, that’s for sure. lol 

      As for a product based website, I would start out on Pinterest if your demographic was married women in their 30s. On Instagram you’re looking at a little younger market so if you want to target the younger market, go with Instagram. 

      Each of the platforms has their benefits and I always go with the one that I am actually going to do. lol If I know I’m just NOT going to make it happen, I don’t do it until I’m ready. 😉 

      Update: Good news! I got the Twitter tutorial finished. 🙂 ENJOY: How to Gain More Followers on Twitter

    I found your article very engaging.  Thank you for posting it.  The pricing seems reasonable at least the lower tiers but I have a question about Tailwinds. You state briefly that tailwind tribes lets you collaborate with other users to spread your pins around but my question is:

    Is the service worth it if you are new to Pinterest?  How does pinning and repinning work in regards to tailwind?  Will you be kicked out of the tailwind tribes groups if you have no monthly viewers?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Jessica Lauren Vine on December 8, 2018 at 1:50 pm


      Thanks for stopping by and great questions!

      Q1. Is Tailwind worth the cost if you are new to Pinterest?

      A1. Yes, Tailwind helps you grow your interest account even if you are at 0.

      Q2. How does pinning and repinning work with Tailwind?

      A2. If you are talking about the Tribes, you go into a tribe and you can see all of the content other people have entered for sharing purposes. Choose which ones you want to share and this is where you add to the que for it to be repinned.

      Q3. Will you be kicked out of the tribes if you don’t have views on your Pinterest account and pins?

      A3. No. Your only obligation is to go into the tribes and repin the other content. You have no control over how many views it gets. Most tribes require you to repin/share 2 pins per share you ask for.

      Hope this helps. B-)

      – Jessica
