Pin Master: Become A Pinterest Pro!

 

Pinterest is a pretty easy thing to grasp, right? You just pin pictures and hope that someone likes them or comments on them. We all know that Pinterest is quickly becoming the go-to social media site and if you have a Pinterest account and a decent amount of followers/likes, you may be asking yourself, now what? You think you might have mastered the art of the pin, but have you thought about making words pinnable? Let’s say you have a great blog you want to share on Pinterest. Take a simple quote from the blog and use Share As Image to transform your text into a pinnable photo!

Share As Image allows you to highlight text anywhere on a website and instantly convert that text into an image. Just grab the bookmarklet from the Share As Image website, and you're ready to pin the text. Here is an example of one I made:

In order to pin text, highlight the words or paragraphs that you wish to pin and hit the "Share As Image" button on your browser. The bookmarklet will then generate a pinnable image containing the text you highlighted. For $2.99, you can buy the pro version of this app in which you can customize your text pin.

Ever wondered which of your pins on Pinterest were the most popular? Or did you want to know how your board on Pinterest was doing? With PinReach you can access all that data and more! PinReach also assigns a PR score to your Pinterest account to give you an overview of how popular you are on the site. The higher your score, the better you're doing. Here is an example of ActivEngage’s data:

Wouldn’t it be great to pin your tweets on Pinterest? With Pinsmatic you can! You can also add locations, music, quotes, and websites. Pinsmatic even has an automatic post-it generator that's perfect for pinning clever quotes or lines from your blog posts. Using the quote part of Pinsmatic would be a great way to showcase customer recommendations:

Hopefully, after reading this blog you’ve gained more valuable tips to master your Pinterest board and to capture more followers, likes, and repins. You can even pin our blog!

To align with the photogenic theme, tomorrow I will have a blog post on Instagram for beginners so be sure to check it out as well. And, as always, Happy Pinning! =)
