Simple Value Proposition: Tailwind SmartGuide keeps you up to date on Pinterest’s best practices, so you can focus your time and energy on your business.


What Does SmartGuide Do?


Initially, SmartGuide:

  • Monitors your Pinning and alerts you if what you’re doing might reduce your overall reach or put your account at unnecessary risk
  • Suggests easy fixes to maintain a healthy queue of scheduled Pins

Over time, SmartGuide will:

  • Keep you up-to-date with the latest best practices on Pinterest (we’ll continue working closely with Pinterest as Partners!)

SmartGuide will be rolling out in waves in the coming weeks.  The vast majority of Tailwind members who have SmartGuide enabled and are publishing a healthy volume of Pins will see our SmartGuide “All Clear” badge, as in the prototype screenshot below.

Here’s a screenshot of what you might see if SmartGuide detects potentially risky behavior that might reduce your distribution so that you can make adjustments before publishing. The vast majority of Tailwind members will not see this indicator.
