Promoting your brand on social media involves managing several social media platforms. This can be a time-consuming task, 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).
Top Pinterest Tools
1) Socialdraft Pinterest Scheduling Tool
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 smartphone or tablet).
1. Click the Pinterest Connect Button (it will be on top of your screen).
2. Agree for Socialdraft to manage your Pinterest boards.
3. The page will redirect to Socialdraft connection page with your Pinterest boards.
Socialdraft also allows you to find beautiful images on our Instagram area and share them to Pinterest with a few easy clicks.
2) Pic Monkey
Pic Monkey is 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. Piktochart comes with a huge number of icons, shapes, and objects that you can easily add into your editor.
The Over app for iOS and Android lets you choose any image and customize it with text, fonts, colors, and type sizes. It lets you change the color, and you can rotate the text. You can also add shapes.
Just visit quozio.com and fill in your quote. Or get the bookmarklet which lets you instantly create an image out of any text you highlight on a web page. After you provide your quote, scroll through the various styles and find the one that best matches it. Then share with your friends.
Page2Images will take the current browser page, snapshot it and send it to Pinterest as a new pin. You can also specify image size, device, screen size, and more.
Share As Image lets you construct an image from text With customization options. With the Chrome extension, you can select text from any website and build an image based on your highlight.
8) Pinterest widgets
These five widgets from Pinterest allow you to integrate your Pinterest presence with your website. The five widgets are a Pin It Button, Follow Button, Pin Widget – lets you embed one of your pins on your site, Profile Widget – displays up to 30 of your latest pins on your site, and Board Widget – displays up to 30 of your favorite board’s latest pins.
9) SumoMe Image Sharer
Image Sharer makes it simple for your readers to share the images on your site and link back to you, driving you viral traffic. When your visitors hover over your images to share them, you can pick exactly where the icons show up: in the middle, on the left, on the right, top, or bottom.

As you already know, Pinterest allows users to upload and manage images known as pins, and other media content through collections known as pinboards. Pinterest also allows companies to create pages to promote their businesses online which can serve as a “virtual storefront.” Pinterest has HUGE potential for small business marketing, but only for those who know what they are doing and who use the right tools. Today, we will discuss our favorite Pinterest tools for small business so you too can save time on your Pinterest marketing efforts and actually see a return on investment from your time.
Pinterest Tools For Small Businesses
Online consumers view Pinterest as a place to get inspiration on what to buy, and Pinterest is a powerful vehicle for brand association, with over 60 percent of the brands out there now using Pinterest to expand brand awareness.

If you’re using a personal account for your business, you can easily convert your personal page to a business page which includes analytics to help you determine which of your pins are the most popular.
In a previous article, “Pinterest Tips For Small Businesses,” we provided Pinterest tips and also pointed out that almost 70 percent of online consumers who visit Pinterest have found an item they’ve purchased or wanted to purchase, compared to only 40 percent of consumers who visit Facebook.

So….we use Canva…and we use the free version for work…and it is awesome. Big ups to Canvas creators for making it so we don’t need to rely on Photoshop for everything. They get a HUGE recommendation form everyone on our team.

Pinterest is awesome for those with something to sell online. The best part of Pinterest’s buyable pins is that they’re FREE (yeah – Pinterest does not take a percentage)…sure, your audience will stay on Pinterest…but if they’re making a purchase, you don’t really need them to go to your site.
TastyPins – Image Optimization Tool
This WordPress plugin is made to help you optimize your images for Pinterest search. Well worth its $29 price point.

This nifty little button makes it easier for your website visitors to pin your content.
If you’re dealing with social media, then you should be looking at analytics. This would be the number one thing I would tell you to use…after Socialdraft 😉 In all seriousness though, Analytics are the key to Pinterest success, so start off here.
