Do I need a Tailwind account for Pinterest management?
You need Tailwind for all packages except the Live Pinning package. It’s optional for the Live Pinning Premium package.
I don’t have a Tailwind account set up. Can you help me set that up?
Yes. We do offer Tailwind Account set up. Please contact our team for pricing and we can set up your account, Tailwind tribes, board lists and your Smart Schedule.
How do you get my pin images to schedule?
We ask every client to set up a secret Pinterest board and call it “new pins”. From there we schedule optimized pins using our strategic pinning process.
Do you require a three-month contract?
No, we don’t. However, we do recommend you work with a Pinterest agency or Pinterest VA for at least three months to be able to see if it’s the right marketing choice for your business. It takes time to get to know every account and also takes time to get larger accounts cleaned up and optimized.
How soon can I see results?
Results completely depend on how much time you’re already investing in Pinterest marketing, how often you’re producing new content and whether or not you have well performing boards to pin to. Some of our clients have seen their Pinterest referral traffic more than double the first two weeks of management. Others have seen a 30% increase Pinterest referrals in one month. However, there are many factors that affect your Pinterest referral rate, but we truly try to help every client see optimum results.
Can I upgrade or downgrade my management packages?
Absolutely. We want to make this management process work for your team and your goals. That may mean you need our hands off package for three months and then switch to a Plus package later. Or it may mean you try out our services with the basic plan and move up to the Premier when you see how we can help your business grow.
How long have you been working on Pinterest accounts?
Alison, the owner of Pinfluence Media, started marketing on Pinterest in 2013. However, she started Pinfluence Media in 2018 when she saw there was a need for dedicated, analytical virtual assistants that solely focused on Pinterest.
What niches does Pinfluence Media specialize in?
Pinfluence Media has managed food blogs (general, Keto, vegan, and dessert), parenting blogs, educational blogs, travel blogs, DIY blogs, pet blogs, and health-focused blogs.
Can I reach out to your team if I have any special promotions, product launches or affiliate sales that I want to be marketed?
Yes! Please communicate with our team on a regular basis so we can understand your goals. We want to help you reach them with the powerful marketing tool of Pinterest!
Is your team careful about Pinterest spam policies?
Yes. We frequently read up on Pinterest spam policies on their business website. We want to market in a way that keeps the client, Pinterest and the pinner happy!
How is payment processed?
We accept only major credit and debit cards for payment (via Wave).
How long does it take to get my account set up?
Typically it takes 48 hours to get your account set up.
What happens during the first week of management?
During the first week of management, we will send you a welcome email with all the information you need to get set up. We will also perform an analysis of your account so you can see what’s working and what’s not. This analysis will also show you areas that need improvement and give you an idea of where you started prior to our management services.
Do you schedule only my content?
We typically follow an 85% to 15% ratio of your content to others’ content. This ratio provides room for pins from your Tailwind tribes as well as for sharing any viral pins in your niche. During some seasons we may raise the percentage to 90% or lower it to 80%. The amount of content you have also affects this ratio.
Does your team create pin images?
We have an in-house pin designer that designs clickable pin images. We offer a few free, custom Pinterest images for every package except the mini package. If the client needs more images, that are available for an additional fee.
Do you schedule video pins?
Yes. We can create them too. Let us know how we can help!
Do you cross-promote among clients?
We do schedule pins from client accounts to other accounts if they’re relevant to your content. We only do this with every client’s best performing content and we hope that gives every client an added boost.
