Here Is The Easiest And Fastest Way To Tie Pinterest To Your Facebook Business Page And Skyrocket Your Traffic!

Have you always wondered how some people are always on top of ALL their social media accounts? For me, Pinterest and Instagram are the most fun, which means I often neglect my Facebook and Twitter pages too. I have tried several strategies, none of which have worked. Today I am happy to share with you how you can tie Pinterest to your Facebook business page thanks to Tailwind!

 

Want to skyrocket your traffic using three simple steps? Do you want to gain more engagement on social media, but just don't seem to have the time? Here's how you can schedule 4 months of posts on Pinterest and Facebook in just 30 mins! All you need to do is tie your Pinterest to your Facebook business page. Here's how. #Tailwindapp #socialmediamarketing #pinteresttips #pinterestmarketing #facebooktips

What Is The Tailwind Tool And What Does It Do?

For those of you who know Tailwind and the magic this tool does, skip to the next point.
Are you a new blogger and have no idea what this is?

You keep hearing about the Tailwind tool/app and are just confused? Well, darling, I have all the info you need right here.

I am assuming you have a Pinterest account right? If you don’t, you need to sign up today.

If you do sign up or are already on Pinterest, let’s connect —> Sheri on Pinterest.

A normal tailwind is a wind coming from directly behind a moving object. Usually an airplane.

So imagine YOU are this flying object and the Tailwind app is here to push you forward and skyrocket your traffic! Cool right?

How Can The Tailwind Tool Help You Increase Engagement?

The Tailwind tool will help you schedule posts, amplify your reach and discover new and great content in your niche. Tailwind will provide you with analytics to see which of your pins are doing great.

It shows you what’s working, and what’s not.

Oh, and you know what else it does? It schedules your pins based on when your audience is most active and engaged.

I must admit, I tried out the free trial for 30-days, and saw a huge increase in traffic. Then I read a lot about how Pinterest works and thought, no, I can do it all by myself. And you can.

But…..Why would you want to when this tool can help you with EVERYTHING? This doesn’t mean you stop pinning manually, of course, you still have to do that, but leave the big stuff for Tailwind.

At the moment, I have my pins scheduled until the end of August. You can schedule them until Thanksgiving if you please. I do 3 months of scheduling in 30 minutes! Yep, you heard that right, in just 30 minutes.

 

Where Do I Sign Up For Tailwind And How Much Does It Cost?

I am about to give you $15 of Tailwind credit. Sign up for the plus plan using my link below.

A Tailwind PLUS account will cost you $15 per month.
If you do what I do, and pay a one-time annual payment of $120, you get 4 months free and your monthly payment comes down to $9.99 per month.

Sounds like a steal to me.

Here’s what you will see. You need to use my link if you want the discount.

 

The Right Way to Connect Pinterest With Your Facebook Page

I have all the information covered for you in just THREE super easy steps.

Here’s how to tie Pinterest to your Facebook business page.

 

1.  Connect your Facebook Business Page with Tailwind

The first thing you need to do is to log into your Tailwind dashboard.

Next,  click on the gear icon in the top right corner of your screen. Scroll down to Account Settings.

If you are logged into Tailwind right now, click here:  “Account Settings”.

 

This opens a page full of tabs at the top. Click on the “Facebook Pages” tab (second from right).

Click on the blue button that reads “Connect to our Facebook Pages” as shown below.

This will redirect you to Facebook! Step one done!

2. Give Tailwind Authorization to Access your Facebook Account

No worries, all Tailwind receives is your email address and public profile.
This means you are allowing Tailwind to post for you, which is exactly what you want right?

Here’s what you should see…

3. Which of Your Facebook Pages Should Tailwind Publish To?

I only have one Facebook Business Page, so this step is easy. If you have multiple Facebook Business Pages, which a lot of people do, you will need to select one.

 

This step is where you hand over the work to Tailwind.Click “Save changes” when done.

Were you able to tie Pinterest to your Facebook business page? Of course! Wham bam, thank you, ma’am!

 

Simultaneously Schedule your Content to Pinterest and your Business Facebook Page

Now that that’s done, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of publishing from Tailwind.

You see a post you want to share, and need a little help going about it?
That’s what I’m here for.

  • Choose a blog post or URL you want to share
  • Click on Tailwind’s Publishing Extension, select the image you’d like to schedule
  • Click “Go Schedule!”.

A popup will appear with your selected Pin. You may also see multiple pins.
Choose the pin your like the most, and give it your own description (or leave it as is. I like to customize the descriptions). Add Boards too, so you can spread the content on Pinterest.

Now Let’s Get To Publishing On Facebook

Screenshot Tie Pinterest To Facebook, add optional description

See where is says “Facebook Page Caption (optional)? I have left that space blank at the moment just to show you where you need to put in the text. Remember, Tailwind will not pull your Pinterest description into your Facebook post.

 

If you leave that section blank, that’s how it will go out on Facebook, so don’t forget to always create a suitable Facebook description. Which would really suck.

Check the box to the left of the orange Facebook page flag icon.

Now, click “Add to Queue/Schedule Now”.

Easy as A – B – C!  I love how simple Tailwind has made it to tie your Pinterest to your Facebook Business Page.  You don’t want to miss out on this great tool.

 

Things To Remember

The posts you publish from Pinterest to your Facebook page(s) most likely  won’t usually share the same image you used in your Pin. Tailwind looks at the metadata in the source URL, then chooses the best image to suit Facebook.  That along with a great caption will help you with Facebook engagement.

Here’s how Tailwind posted my Pin.

Worked like a charm. ( “IT WORKS”) in pink was just added my me – jumping for joy. And that’s how you tie your Pinterest to your Facebook business page.

Use Tailwind To:

  • Schedule Posts
  • Discover Content
  • Amplify your Reach
  • Measure Results

Tailwind Helps You Tie Pinterest To Your Facebook Business Page The Best Way Possible With It’s Magic Tricks

Once you’ve followed the steps above, you can post to Facebook as little or as often as you want. The choice is yours. I don’t do this for every Pin. I like to share certain posts to my Facebook page, so only about 5% go out through Facebook so far.  I’ll update this post in three months to give you feedback on how my engagement and traffic has (hopefully) changed and improved.

What do you think of the Tailwind tool? Are you already using it, but only for Pinterest at the moment?Do you think this tool can increase your productivity and help skyrocket your traffic?

I have a love hate relationship with Pinterest. I know I should be doing more with it and have heard stories of Pinterest being a top traffic driver for many sites but I just can’t find the time. Great to see you have had success and that the steps are easy to tackle when I am ready.

New blogger here. I love how you are sharing ways to increase engagement and traffic. I do not have a Pinterest account. I have only used Twitter for now but it hasn’t done much for me. The Pinterest account now makes more sense than it did last week.

I have tried to do this before and was for some reason unable to link my Facebook business page so I gave up. So glad I found a real explanation for how to do this. Thanks. – Following you on Pinterest by the way.

I have both Pinterest and Tailwind but I never knew I could tie it to Facebook. I post to my Facebook page once a week, if I remember. This should help. Great post!

🙂 Honestly speaking, I do not have a Facebook business page; but if I did, I would certainly tie Pinterest to it.

Thank you for the tutorial
