Pinterest Tools

Share As Image (Formerly Pin a Quote)
Just like it’s name says, this tool lets you post quotes to Pinterest easily and with little effort. All you have to do is to do is visit their website to grab their bookmarklet and drag the button ‘Pin A Quote’ to your browser’s bookmark bar. You can then pin any quote simply by highlighting the text you like on any website and then clicking the “Pin A Quote” bookmarklet. A form will pop up to fill in with the quote information. Once done entering the information you can pin the quote straight on to Pinterest. (Free Version Available)

This great tool gives you the ability to pin Twitter profile links, links of websites, and ‘Sticky Notes’ to your boards. This unique tool is expected to support more content types soon, so you will be able to add a variety of different types of content to make your board even more interesting. (FREE)

Pin Reach
This one is a EXTREMELY useful tool that helps you measure your Pinterest influence. Its ‘Analytics’ lets you view your total pins, re-pins, likes, followers etc. It provides an overall score of your pins. It displays its information about your most popular pins and boards by using easy to understand charts and tables. If you want to know how popular you are on Pinterest, then you should definitely give this tool a try! (FREE)

Pinpuff is another service that allows measuring your Pinfluence, that is, how popular you are on Pinterest. It also tells you the value of each of your pins. Simply go to the website, enter your email and Pinterest username and select ‘Calculate your Pinfluence’. The service will show you your total score based on your reach, activity and the popularity of your pins. It also tells you the estimated value of your pins and referral traffic. (FREE)

Pinerly is presently in beta, but it is expected to be a really comprehensive Pinterest analytics tool. So it is always a good idea to add your email address to the waiting list.

Brands and businesses will find this tool to be really helpful in getting them feedback about their marketing campaigns. (FREE)

Pinterest On The Go for IPhone
For those truly addicted to the site, Pinterest has an official iPhone app which makes it easy to take your account with you everywhere you go! You can pin photos you’ve taken, or saved, through the app. Android users, however, aren’t as lucky. You can still access all of the site’s features using the HTML5 mobile version of the site in your browser, but you will have no uploading capability. (FREE)
