I learned a cool Pinterest trick this week using the NEW Insights feature in my Tailwind Tribe. So, of course I’m going to share it with all my readers. Now, if you aren’t on Tailwind yet, here is my affiliate link – that will get you a FREE month of Tailwind, which comes with five memberships to the Tailwind Tribes of your choice (even on the trial plan).
Disclaimer – This is an affiliate link, so if you use it to sign up with Tailwind at some point, I will receive a small commission at no charge to you. It’s sort of like tipping your waiter.
How to Pick Out the Top Pinners in your Niche
However, that’s NOT ALL you can do with this information. If you go down to the Tribe Highlights section, you can see all the top pinners for each of your Tribes. Since you’ve likely chosen these Tribes carefully to fit your particular niche, you are looking at some of the high-ranking pinners in your niche.
In this particular example, all 3 of the top pins for the week are from the same pinner. Two of her pins were repinned from my Tailwind Tribe 38 times and one was repinned 31 times. She has 187 shares overall this week. And that’s just for my Tribe. She probably is getting similar results in her other Tribes. It would be a pretty smart move to go and check that pinner out, by clicking on the button below her name to see her pins.
She does have some nice pins and they are getting decent repin rates on Pinterest as you can see by the blue score boxes in the upper right hand corner of her pins. If these fit your niche, you’d be smart to add several of them to your queue so you can get the benefit of her highly popular pins. Also, look at her pin style and wording to see what is making her so attractive to other pinners. There’s some great lessons to be learned here.
If I click on her name, Tailwind shows me even more info about her. From there, I can either visit her website, or go and find her on Pinterest. I did and it turns out she was a bit newer than I had hoped – only 500 Followers, but she’s doing a lot of smart things, so I’m betting she will grow fast. And a couple of her group boards look pretty interesting, so I will definitely Follower her. And I’ve still got a bunch of other top pinners on my other boards to explore.
This would be a smart thing to do every week or so with ALL your Tailwind Tribes. You’re likely to find some highly ranked pinners to Follow, some very popular pins to pin, and maybe find some good group boards to join. All of those smart moves can’t help but boost your Pinterest rating.
These are the Tailwind Typical Results – Pinterest is crazy unpredictable even at the best of times, so your mileage may vary. But I’ve had a great experience with it.

Blogging resources I love and recommend:
Tailwind – I’ve been working with Tailwind for about five years. They are the pin scheduler of choice and it is jam-packed with great features. If you haven’t already, sign up for a FREE month of Tailwind HERE.
The Isabelle theme by Bluchic – is my favorite theme for WordPress websites. I’ve used it to build a bunch of different websites. It’s pretty, easy to customize, and really simple to use. It’s shown in a very pale pink, but I’ve done it in turquoise, emerald green, and navy/gold color schemes. For safety and security reasons, I will not ever use a free WordPress theme. This is the engine that powers and protects your website. Learn about the Isabelle theme HERE.
Legal Templates – You are required by law to have a certain package of legalese on your blog. You need to have copyright notices, privacy policies, and various other terms and conditions to protect yourself from being sued. The package I recommend is created by Amira Law – a lawyer who specializes in all aspects of blogging and internet business legalities. Learn more about these Legal Templates HERE.
Pinterest Resources – Pinterest is definitely my jam. I have an Ebook that is very affordable and is packed with helpful tips. OR, if you want a more personalized touch, I will do a Pinterest/Tailwind audit where I go over your account with a 30-point checklist and then set up a Zoom call with you to give you TONS of suggestions. Order the Ebook HERE and the Pinterest Audit HERE.
