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!
