7 Tailwind Tribes for Creative Bloggers to Boost Their Traffic

Have you heard of Tailwind Tribes? I LOVE using Tailwind Tribes.  

Tailwind Tribes are similar to a group board on Pinterest but better. It's more exclusive, you have to be invited or have a special link invitation to join and you're able to connect with other marketers, bloggers, etc. within your niche.

Tailwind Tribes are great because they are more niched down than a Pinterest group board and you can get the statistics from the tribes that you're in. Here's an example of the reach and repins that I received from one of my tribes. 

How to Increase Engagement on All of Your Posts

Sometimes it is really hard to be true to who you are online.. I reaaaalllly used to struggle with this. I would find myself saying "but me and my online brand wouldn't say that..." or etc. but here's ONE thing that has really helped me. When I get overwhelmed or I'm not quite sure what to say in a post...

I think of ONE person.

I keep that one person in mind that I know needs to hear what I'm going to tell them. I write / speak to them and talk like I'm talking to a friend.

This makes things easier for me for a few reasons:⠀

How to Create Quote Graphics for Social Media

Sometimes social media is more than just a pretty photo, when you USE words on your graphics, you are able to connect with your audience, ask questions and provide inspiration. 

 I schedule my quote graphics on other platforms to grow my reach and recycle them weekly. When I started sharing quote graphics on Instagram and Twitter, I noticed a huge difference in engagement and shares!! I want this for you too!

This is the EXACT process that I use when I create quote graphics.

Why I Switched from MeetEdgar to SmarterQueue

You know that social media is important for your creative business but let’s be honest, social media takes TIME. I used to spend every Sunday evening planning out my content for the week ahead. I would set up my prompts for my facebook group and make sure that they would post at the same time each day. I would add other people's content to my queue in Buffer and rinse and repeat the next week. But you know what? I knew that there had to be something better. Something that would save me more time!

As a previous social media manager, I have tried lots of different tools for social media scheduling (Buffer, Post Planner, Hootsuite, Sprout Social, CoSchedule to name a few) but I wanted to find a tool that would allow me recycle posts so that they were always posting on their own to help save me time.
