31 Day #feedgoals Instagram Challenge by Tailwind + Adobe Spark

31 Day #feedgoals Instagram Challenge by Tailwind + Adobe Spark

with 31 days of suggested topics for July.

Tailwind teamed up with Adobe Spark for a “Zero to Hero” challenge to grow your Instagram following.

The challenge was for the 31 days of May. Each day a topic was emailed with example posts and suggested hashtags to get things going.

It was a great opportunity to put the free trial for Tailwind for Instagram to work. The trial is 31 free posts. We were to use the free Adobe Spark site to create terrific images and use the new Tailwind for Instagram with its Hashtag Finder for scheduling.

Words of Wisdom is the topic for this image. Posted May 3

The Hashtag Finder suggests relevant hashtags for your image

You can write the caption and Tailwind will save it for pasting into the caption. For this, you need to download the Tailwind App. Tailwind will remind you when it is time to post.

Adobe Spark was a new program for me. It’s free which is great.  It does a lot of the creating for you. I will be doing a post about Adobe Spark soon. I used it exclusively during the month of May for Instagram images and blog post images. Those blog post images include vertical Pinterest-size ones.

I enjoyed this project. I use, and love,  Tailwind for my pinning but decided after the challenge not to pay for the Tailwind for Instagram. This was not because I didn’t like it, quite the contrary. If you need to schedule many Instagram posts give this a try. At the moment, I only post once a day and usually prepare the image the day of posting. I hope at some point to prepare my posts in advance. At that time I will activate Tailwind for Instagram to manage those posts.

Motivation Monday. Posted May 29

I found the daily post topics most beneficial. It made it very easy, most days.  A few were challenging when the topic was outside my usual scope. It was a good opportunity to push myself to come up with something relevant for these.

Did it increase my following and engagement? My followers grew steadily and there was a bit more engagement. I noticed a lot of the engagement from people who were not my followers.

    Wow! Does tailwind work with Instagram? I wish there is an app that I can schedule my instagram post. Thanks for sharing the adobe sparks, I have not heard about it before.

      Yes Tailwind for Instagram app works with Instagram. You start with your scheduled post in the Tailwind app and it opens Instagram and you do your post.

    I love challenges. I ran a blog post challenge last year and had a theme for the challenge and post titles (loose titles just for a starter) that everyone had to write about, so all the posts were individual experiences but based on a theme. It worked really well. I wish I understood Instagram, can't get the hang of it at all. Enjoy the journey!
  4. Jasmin says:
    I never heard of Tailwind before reading your post. Your review was very helpful. I'll have to look into a bit more to see if it's something that I can use with my IG account.
