Next, what Tailwind Create can do?

Tailwind Create automatically generates posts optimized for Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. No design skills required. Why? Because all designs are “almost done.” You just need to add a little twist like edit text on images, change the colors, or select layouts. You are allowed to add your brand logo too.

Let’s create a Pinterest image for “The Ultimate List of Tools & Resources for Online Business” blog post.

Here is a step-by-step guide to navigating Tailwind Create!

Step1. Login to Tailwind account. Click Tailwind Create (paintbrush icon) and “Start Creating Now.

Step2. Read “Terms of Service” and accept it. After that, you’ll see 2 minutes how-to video. This video is super helpful. I’d highly recommend you to watch it.

Step3. Set up “Brand Preferences” like logo, fonts, and color palettes. Once you set up these, it will save you time because Tailwind Create automatically applies these brand styles to every design. You can change these at any time. You can also skip this setting at first.

Step4. Paste URL & article title, and choose your image. For the image, you have two options such as stock photos and site photos. In this tutorial, I’d choose a stock photo and use the keyword “online business.”

When you hit the magnifying glass icon, online business-related images appeared. Select multiple images that you like. And then, click “Create Images.”

Step5. Now, you’ll see a lot of “almost done” designs. Let’s edit it.

On the right side, you’ll see a navigation bar. Click “Color Palettes” in that navigation menu. From the “Color Palettes” list, select your corporate color or a similar color palette to your brand.

Type your website URL in the “Branding” section. It will automatically add your website URL to all images. (So, you don’t have to type in one by one) This is a huge time-saving.

Here is my favorite part! Tailwind Create instantly transforms images into hundreds of optimized designs for Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest – all in one click. How?

Click “Post Types” and select one:

  •  Feed Post (Instagram)
  • Stories (Instagram)
  • Pins (Pinterest)
  • Feed Posts (Facebook)

This is super helpful to create a unified design for each social media channel. And yes, it also saves tons of time!

Step6. Compare designs and if you like it, click “Select.” With the free account, you can select 20 images for a month. Did you select your favorite images? Then, click “Review Your Selection.”

Step7. Last step!

You have a two-choice: Download graphics or schedule graphics. Yes, you can directly schedule social media content through the Tailwind dashboard. For now, you can schedule Instagram and Pinterest content. (but Facebook scheduling coming soon!)
