“Smart” Ways to Share on Instagram

If you’re using Instagram, then you know it’s a booming social media platform that’s perfect for connecting with your audience. Whether you’re curating your feed or sharing “behind the scenes” stories, the conversations taking place on Instagram are gold for your online business. However, one drawback can be the lack of an easy way to share links because captions aren’t clickable. Fortunately there is a f-r-e-e option that’s both simple and beautiful.

What Is Tailwind?

For those of you who are totally new to Tailwind, it’s a scheduler for Instagram and/or Pinterest, but it is also so much more. I first fell in love with its Pinterest features that let me automatically re-schedule my pins on an endless loop, participate in niche “tribes” for sharing great pins, and easily pin right from my Chrome browser. It’s seriously so fast! I can batch a week’s worth of pinning in about 15 minutes, which is so important as a busy work-at-home-momma who works in small pockets of time.

I could {and should!} dedicate an entire posts to Tailwind Pinterest features and strategies. However I’ve recently started to use Tailwind’s Instagram features and just had to share them ASAP.

Tailwind for Instagram

Using Tailwind, you can schedule posts, videos, and stories. The visual planner helps organize your “9 grid” so you can make sure your feed looks balanced in advance. You can also monitor your comments right inside.

However, Tailwind is more than just a social media scheduler… it’s your virtual Instagram coach that can help improve your Instagram marketing. Over time, Tailwind will help you understand your best times to post and recommended hashtags that increase engagement. You can save your hashtags in to custom lists for easy use over and over. The hashtag feature alone will save you so.much.time! No more endless hashtag research. I like that the recommend hashtags are color-coded so you can visually see the potential reach size and competition with each one.

Bonus FOREVER FREE Instagram Feature

Instagram has a new Smart.bio feature. As soon as I heard about this baby, I immediately shared it in my mastermind groups and told everyone to RUN over and sign up to snag their custom URL. Do you see mine there? Isn’t she beautiful??

Then when someone taps on my Smart.bio link, they see a list of my custom links. It’s also f-r-e-e to customize this to match your branding, so mine is in my signature navy.

But wait, of COURSE there’s more. Below your list of links, you can include visual links that correspond to your Instagram posts too. What?! So simple and on-brand. You can customize the text below each image and send each picture to a custom link of your choice. Yesss!

For those of you {like me!} who learn best when seeing it in action, here’s a little visual tour.

This is so, so, so important! You can trust that using Tailwind is 100% safe and up-to-date on best practices for each platform.

You can get a completely free trial for your first 100 scheduled Pins or 30 scheduled Instagram Posts. I love that this is based on your activity, not a timeline, so you don’t feel like you need to rush through a free trial before deciding.

I’m thrilled with how polished it looks, how quickly she completed it, and most of all, how easy it was to ‘hand her the reins’ and let her do her thing. I should have done this years ago, if I had known how easy Christi would make it!

... a dedicated and professional blog designer... by far my favorite. I loved Christi's design process and her extreme patience. She was prompt in replying to my questions and worked with me until each part of the website was exactly how I wanted it.

Working with Christi has saved me so much time and frustration. If you are debating if it’s worth the money like I was, I’m in the other side of it to say it was worth every penny. I highly recommend her and plan to use her services again.

I was referred to Christi by Bill Erickson, who works on larger projects... Christi was so prompt, informative and genuine. I absolutely love how my new site came out and will certainly be a returning client.

It was such a pleasure to work with Christi. She was on deadline and budget. In fact, she even gave me a couple of ideas that I hadn’t even considered before meeting with her. If you are looking for a trusted professional to work with I would highly recommend Christi.

I am absolutely in love with my new Wordpress website. Her pricing was fair and included so many things I couldn't get with other developers. Christi delivered me a professional and stylish branding package. Thank you Christi, I would work with you again in a heartbeat!

Working with Christi was an absolute dream. She was prompt, responsive, and incredibly helpful for a client who is largely uncomfortable with web and graphic design. She made me feel comfortable asking questions, and handled suggested revisions with welcome input and ease.

Christi is such a breath of fresh air! If you’re in need of a new design or even just stuck on problems with your website, she’s the go to person! I have worked with other designers before and she is the only one who put up with my constant e-mailing.

I really don’t know if I can put into words how grateful I am! When I was a brand new blogger trying to get my business off the ground, she delivered! She is insanely easy to work with, highly-talented, and a true professional. I cannot recommend her enough.
