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