Connecting your Pinterest account

Our mission is to help you
infuse social intelligence in all that you do.


Starting with Pinterest, our aim is to deliver tools that help you harness and make sense of social data; ushering in the new age of socially-aware enterprises.

We believe...

  1. The customer’s customers always come first.
  2. Advertising must be a great experience for both consumers and marketers.
  3. The world is becoming transparent, and we should be too.
  4. Empowering those around you is a good thing.
  5. Love what you do and do what you love.
  6. We should only get paid if we add value.

Our Story

We were our own first customer.

We began using Pinterest in early 2011 as a solution for our own marketing purposes while building BridesView.com. The very first version of Tailwind (then named PinLeague) asked a simple question: how can we identify brides-to-be using Pinterest to plan their weddings? As we dug in deeper, we began to see rapid success on Pinterest. Pretty soon, our friends started asking if we could generate similar insights for them.

A huge opportunity was emerging and we decided to pivot, focusing on opening the best Pinterest marketing and analytics platform to everyone.

Since then, our users have led us in new and exciting directions, and have helped us to understand that:

  1. ROI from Pinterest isn’t just about what happens on Pinterest.
  2. The greatest rewards come from leveraging insights across marketing channels, and even across entire organizations.

Thus, we've grown with our users’ needs and are thinking bigger each and every day.

Today, over 35,000 of the world’s leading brands and 300 of the top agencies trust Tailwind, and we’re excited to see how social intelligence can transform your business.

We view this as only the beginning. Thank you for making it all possible!
