Save Time With These Top Pinterest Tools
Promoting your brand on social media involves managing several social media platforms which can be very time consuming. But with the right tools you can save quite a bit of time. If Pinterest is one of the social media platforms you are using to promote your business, we’ve put together 20 Pinterest tools that will save you a lot of time (and check out our Pinterest board – we love to post quick tips & SMM news).
1) Socialdraft (yup – we’ve got Pinterest Scheduling)
As with every feature on Socialdraft, we wanted to make scheduling Pinterest pins easy-peasy. With Socialdraft you can schedule your pins from anywhere (even your smart phone or tablet).
1. Click the Pinterest Connect Button (it will be on top of your screen).

2) Pic Monkey
A free image-editing tool — think of an online Photoshop lite — Pic Monkey can help you create just about any image you’d like, with any feature you might need. You can touch up and edit an existing image or create a brand new image from scratch. And perhaps my favorite feature of Pic Monkey is that you can get started without ever logging in or signing up; just click the “Edit for free!” link in the very top right corner.
Piktochart’s interactive layouts allow you to build a complete infographic embedding charts, photos, and more. You can get started with a prebuilt template (and then customize yourself) or you can go truly bare bones and build the entire infographic however you see fit.
