How to use Pin a Quote (Share As Image)

how to pin a quote to pinterest In a previous post ,  I demonstrated how to create pinnable quotes.  For this post I am going to show how you can Pin a Quote to Pinterest using a tool developed by Adam Rotman, a creative web strategist. This is one of my favorite Pinterest tools because it saves  me a lot of time and it’s an easy way of to pin quotes that you like.  Without further ado,  here is the tutorial video.

 

Pin a Quote Free vs. Pro versions

As I mentioned in the mention in the video, I love using the Pro version of Pin a Quote.  Here’s why:

  • You can have different fonts for the actual quote and the name of the author.
  • You can choose different colors for your background and text. This is good if you want to maintain some sort of branding in your pinteresting quotes.
  • You’re quotes pop out which is very important.  See example below:

Quotes made using the Pin a Quote Pro version are more pinteresting.

 

Adam is adding new features to Pin a Quote as per his email to me when I gave him my feedback of the tool. I only hope that these new features will allow me to:

  • Store my created pins in my pro account or at least see a list of pins that I have created.
  • Incorporate textured backgrounds into the design. As of the moment, the background of your quote is a solid color. Textured backgrounds would be nice or, better yet…
  • Use an image as background  for the text. This would be a wicked cool feature that I’m sure many would love.

Ideas for using Pin a Quote

Now that you know how to create your very own pinteresting quotes, what’s next. If you’re a blogger, you can go back to your old posts and see if there are pinworthy passages you can share to your followers in Pinterest. It could be something profound, a joke (everyone needs a good laugh), or a tip that you think is very useful. For example, I have a post on 7 ways to clean your computer and business laptop. I created pins out of the tips. They’re great reminders that go so well with my The Virtual Assistant Pinboard on Pinterest.

Happy pinning.

Update: Pin a Quote is now known as Share as image.
