When I lived in Switzerland we lived on a Swiss dairy farm very close to the Swiss Army Knife factory…Victorinox. As you can imagine, in our home, the Swiss Army Knife has become a familiar friend that’s always handy to have around. Like that famous Swiss Army Knife – the Pinterest tools I’ve described in this post will make your Pinterest experience better and your presence more aesthetic (which is key to successful Pinning).
Picmonkey.com – is a simple online photo editor with great filters and touch-up options allowing you to perform common image editing tasks with just a few clicks from anywhere with an internet connection. Here’s a quick Picmonkey Example.
PinGraphy.com – A Pinterest management tool that allows you to schedule and bulk load your Pins. Ordinarily, you can tell when someone has been on a Pinterest binge and your feed suddenly fills up with image after image from one person. Pingraphy helps you even out your pinning. It also allows you track Repins, Likes, Clicks and Reach for every Pin as well as finding influential users among your followers. (This is very handy when you are using Pinterest as an active part of your social media strategy)
Curalate.com – This is an intelligence platform that enables you to make sense of and benefit from social curation. This means it helps to ensure that you don’t miss the conversations people are having about your Brand. So far, they have focussed on Pinterest as a platform – so you can track what people are saying and doing with your content which they are Pinning and sharing.
Quozio.com – Quozio turns meaningful words into beautiful images in seconds. It’s a fast easy way to make quotes for Pinterest, blog posts and Facebook. Then share them on Pinterest, Facebook, Email and more! See my own Pinterest quote which I created with a press of a button!
Pinstamatic.com – Pinstamatic offers a solution for anyone who is looking for something more out of Pinterest. If Pinning images is simply not enough for you, Pinstamatic lets you Pin entire websites, text, locations, music and much more. It does all this without ruining the Pinterest experience or making your boards look less attractive. Here’s a neat Twitter profile which Remco de Vries from Freezer Media created for me using Pinstamatic!
Pinalerts.com – is a free web service that sends alerts, via email, whenever someone Pins something from your website. Very handy to know this – because you also know how people are sharing content from your website and of course…what people find interesting to share.
There you go! That should keep you happy for a bit – no doubt I will find new tools and applications that will make your life easy and help you to not only enjoy the experience of Pinterest for business…but also help you to be a savvy business user of the platform.
If you come across any nifty tools that I should know about – please just give me a shout, or pop a comment below.
I hope you find these tools useful…happy Pinning! (Don’t forget to Pin the Infographic I have created for you above and share this post by clicking any of the share buttons below.)
