‘Pinning’ is hot these days – there’s no denying that. The social media pinning site, Pinterest, has become the fastest growing social media network ever – reaching 10 million unique visitors quicker than any other social media network. Seemingly overnight, Pinterest has evolved from a social tool dominated by fashion-crazed young women to a widespread marketing phenomenon — and now B2B marketers have jumped on the bandwagon. While adding a Pinterest account to your already overflowing daily social media tasks might seem a bit daunting, there are already several new tools out there that can help you maximize your Pinterest campaigns. Here are 3 useful (and free) ones to help get you going:
1) url2pin.it is designed to help you share your websites on Pinterest. “url2pin.it” allows you to share a screenshot of your website, instead of just pulling a single image from your homepage.
2) PinAQuote allows you to highlight any text on the web and pin it to your Pinterest board by turning it into an image. (You can share it on your other social media networks too!)
3) Pinstamatic helps you to get more from Pinterest by adding so much more than photos. You can now add locations, music, quotes, calendar dates, Twitter profile links, sticky notes and websites.
