E-Commerce marketing on Tailwind is simple. It may sound complicated, but I promise it is not.
You probably already know this, but you have to find your target market. Not having a specific audience will do nothing but cause you more confusion throughout your marketing process.

We are going to break this into two categories Instagram and Pinterest.
Making your social media presence known for E-Commerce marketing on Tailwind and more is key to success!
Instagram: Boy oh boy is Instagram a difficult thing. You honestly have to dedicate some time and effort to this social media platform to be successful.
I have a friend who goes on Instagram for 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes at night. Throughout the time I’ve spent following her, I’ve watched her following count grow, brand, and theme. Now, she’s an amazing Instarolemodel.
An incredible E-Commerce business that anyone and everyone who works knows is Gymshark. I love Gymshark and their product. Gymshark is an E-Commerce business who is dominating in their market. All of the top athletes around the world are wearing them with their awesome bods and showing us the latest workouts. So, of course, the fans of these athletes are going to purchase the product that they are raving about!
Gymshark does an incredible job on Instagram and lets’ figure out how.
Have you heard of influencer marketing?
“Influencer marketing is a form of marketing in which focus is placed on influential people rather than the target market as a whole. It identifies the individuals that have influence over potential buyers, and orients marketing activities around these influencers.” – definition from the web
Every successful business is trying (if not already) to incorporate influencer marketing because it works! As an E-Commerce business, you should do your research and figure out who could use your brand, who you would like to use your brand, and if they’re Instagram aesthetic matches your business, before choosing the right influencer.
An example of Gymshark using Influencer Marketing is below:
Another excellent example of using Social Media to thrive is Kylie Cosmetics! Say what you want about the Kardashian/Jenner family, but they know how to market especially social media marketing.
Not only does Kylie Jenner promote her products on her channel, but the brand sends PR to influencers, so they can use the products and show it to their audience.

It is the same for E-Commerce businesses. E-Commerce marketing on Tailwind does have different goals than bloggers on Tailwind, but both are still wanting to gain that traffic to their site.
I’ve noticed that a lot of business website now have a blog page which is awesome because it is another way to connect with their customers. From that blog page, you can schedule on Tailwind that photo and post and explain how the product is available on your website.
