Facebook groups, Pinterest Group boards, and Tailwind tribes are indispensable tools that every serious blogger needs to be utilizing. Each of them is unique in how they function, meaning they both have pros and cons. Nonetheless, you should be using all three if you want to be a successful blogger. If you have never heard of one or more of these traffic boosters, no worries, I’m going to point you in the right direction.
If I had to pick one of the three tools, Facebook Groups is definitely the one I would pick. Facebook Groups open the door for you to meet other bloggers. They give you a chance to connect with others for support and share your blog to boost traffic. The best groups have daily prompts to promote the various media accounts relating to your blog. For instance, some groups have, twitter days, Instagram days, blog post days, Pinterest days, Facebook page days, etc. Generally, after you share one of your accounts on the thread, you must share or comment on other bloggers’ accounts. There are ways to make the most of Facebook groups. Make sure that you follow the rules and interact often. Here are my favorite Facebook Groups
- This group can send a lot of traffic to your blog because they are always creating promotion threads.
- The Admin of this group is very helpful and extremely smart with Pinterest.
- The Admin of this group is amazing. She interacts with group members’ accounts, which you don’t see too often in other groups.
- This group is great for support. There are always posts prompting bloggers to ask questions and discuss challenges and accomplishments.
- (This is a group that I just made) I am taking all of the things I love about other Facebook Groups, and leaving out the things I hate. As of now, it is small, but it is very interactive. I would love it if you joined!
Pinterest Group Boards
Pinterest is an extremely important social media platform that bloggers need to be using. If you are a blogger and not using it, you are missing out on tons of traffic. But pinning things on your own personal account doesn’t usually cut it. That’s what Pinterest Group Boards are for. Group Boards are what they sound like. They have multiple people contributing to one board. Once you join one, you pin one of your pins in a group board and repin someone else’s pin (or whatever the instructions set by the creator are). These are some of my favorite group boards
- This is the Pinterest Group Board I made alongside the Facebook Group. As of now, it is not overly saturated, so it’s a great time to join it.
Tailwind is a new, game-changing way to go about Pinterest. Tailwind makes is extremely simple to repin your own pins and share pins with others. You can schedule your pins weeks in advanced. Tailwind even does the research to tell you when the best time to schedule your pins is based on your follower’s activity. There are incredible success stories about Tailwind bringing people hundreds of thousands of page views. It is similar to Pinterest boards that you post your pins and then you share others’ pins (according to the rules set by the creator of the tribe). If you would like to join Tailwind, click here. You need an invitation to tribes. I do not have the ability to invite anyone to tribes except my own.
But if you go check out this blog post, there is a list of 75 Tailwind Tribes to join through clicking the link. Out of that post, these are my picks for which ones I liked the best. (Not all of the links work, but the ones I listed below do).
