How To Set Up A Tailwind Account In Seven Steps

This tutorial on how to set up a tailwind account is essential reading if you’re a small business owner with limited time on your hands. It is part one in my four part Tailwind series – a series designed to help you get to grips with Tailwind – and it really will help you save time with your Pinterest marketing strategy.

Creating A New Tailwind Account

To get started using Tailwind, you’re going to need to create a new Tailwind account. I’ll give you step by step instructions below on how to set up a Tailwind account, but first, make sure you’re logged into the Pinterest account that you use for your business.


Step 1

Open a new browser winder and type in

Step 2

If you’re not already logged in, log into Pinterest with your email and password for your business account.

Step 3

Open up a new tab in your chosen internet browser.

Step 4

Open up Tailwind. You can do that by clicking here and it will automatically open Tailwind for you – and give you one month free on the plus plan if you sign up for their paid plan later.

Step 5

Tailwind will open a pop up window asking you to authorise their access of your Pinterest account. Say yes. This is why we had to be logged into Pinterest first! 🙂

Step 6

You’ll then be redirected to Tailwind and they will ask you for some details. Input any details they ask for.

Step 7

Tailwind will now walk you through a ‘guided tour’ of how to save and schedule a pin. You can’t actually not view this as they give you no opt out option – I think I’ve seen it about 30 times now with all the client accounts I have managed! – so just click where they tell you to click and get it done with quick! (I’ll have a video tutorial going up shortly to show you more clearly!)
