Your weekly Tips from #SeniSal

I thought to share a couple of quick Instagram engagement tips that I received from a fellow blogger in her newsletter:

Instagram Tips

👉 1) When you post a new image, go BACK to the image you posted BEFORE that one, and reply to all the comments it received. Anyone who had commented on that previous post will get a notification and will be more likely to go back to your profile, see that you now have a NEWER post, and leave some engagement on that one now too.

👉 2) When you post a new image, click on the hashtags you used, then comment on the most recent posts that come up for that hashtag. It’s likely that people who just posted their image within the last hour using the same hashtag will still be online, see your comment, visit your profile and leave a comment on your related post in return

👉 3) I’m all about borrowing other people’s audiences. Go to the profile of ‘big’ people in your niche, read through the comments that other people leave on their posts, and reply to those comments with your own valuable input to answer their question (related to the things you sell/teach/help people with). This free exposure works really well. A lot of the time, the ‘big’ person who owns that account doesn’t have time to answer comments/questions on their posts, so this is your opportunity to help their audience, and benefit your own business.

What does Niche Down your Blog mean?

Niching down means having a clearly defined audience and target reader, so you know the content you produce will solve a specific problem. 

Looking for any help and insight and the how to do and know that you will not waste your money? Well, then this will be the most perfect course for you to enroll in as Tracie will guide you through

and you will be able to hit the road running thereafter.

More Pinterest

The State of Pinterest for Bloggers as per Adventures in Blogging and which I received via an email from Lena Gott.  I am sharing with you some information as I feel this is very relevant.

Click on the above link and check it out.


Some very interesting information and update:

I used Tailwind (Free Trial) approximately (I am guessing) 2 years ago, and just never went ahead to go for the paid plan.

Well, now with all the drastic changes to Pinterest and so much being said for and again Pinterest and scheduling through Tailwind, I decided to check in with Tailwind and see what’s up as I wanted to get information directly from them.

I copy and paste my direct conversation via chat to Tailwind:


My main concern is that from what I gather from Pinterest that they are not keen on TW and do not regard pins from TW as fresh pins. Is this true? How come they still endorse TW and then do not regard pins from TW as fresh pins?


Quite the opposite actually! I can for sure say that we have confirmed from our Partner team at Pinterest, that Pins published through Tailwind or any other official Pinterest partner are not distributed differently than those published natively. There has been a lot of confusion on what Pinterest considered “fresh” pins, but whether or not it comes from our system is not a factor in this. It has a lot to do with having claimed domains and whether or not you’re using our system to re-pin.


Pinterest doesn’t like scheduling with Tailwind anymore because they want you to pin fresh pins – via the + add a pin in the app. They do not view tailwind pins as original content anymore.

Can you categorically confirm this to be incorrect as per your previous statement?


I will triple-check with my supervisor just to make sure, but this was a recent check we did with Pinterest (within the last two months)!

Tailwind Follow-up to the above comment

I can confirm that as long as your pin is considered fresh under Pinterest standards, they will be considered fresh from us! As I mentioned previously, there has been a lot of confusion on what Pinterest considered “fresh” pins, but whether or not it comes from our system is not a factor in this. There are a lot of different variables and workflows that might cause some confusion between systems, so we just need to make sure things go smoothly!

Well, after some forward and backward discussions through Tailwind Chat, they granted me another Free trial (100 pins), as they obviously hope that I will end up going for the paid plan.

Tailwind provided me with the below link, so please take a moment to read and familiarize yourself, and then you can decide how you wish to proceed.

As I now have a FREE trial with 100 pins to work with, I will use it and report back my findings.
