How To Pin A Quote To Pinterest

I know what you are thinking….ugh, another Pinterest blog, but not exactly. This is an applet for Pinterest which I find pretty cool. Ever see a blog post that doesn’t have any pretty pictures but it has good content? Or maybe you’ve wanted to start a Pin Board on Pinterest of favorite quotes but didn’t know how to display them because of lack of pictures? For people active on Pinterest, they can now pin a quote of the article as an image with Pin A Quote.

I first saw it when I was perusing Pinterest and saw fellow Tweeter @DeniseWakeman pinned an article about SEO and how Pinterest went NoFollow in March 2012 by SearchEngineLand.

How it works:

1. Drag the little Pin A Quote button to your bookmarks bar in any browser.

2. Go to any website and highlight text and then click on the PinAQuote button in your browser. Giving credit to who said it is optional but common courtesy.

3. Click Post button and then you’ll be redirected back to the Pin A Quote site where it instructs you to now Pin It to Pinterest.

4. When you click the Pin It button on the Pin A Quote website after your text has been highlighted, you can add the pin to one of your pin boards on Pinterest easily.

Pin A Quote is free but you can upgrade to Pin A Quote Pro version for a measly $1.99 flat fee. Pin A Quote Pro allows you to customize your quote font, the author font (who said it), the background color, quote color, and author color.  Pretty nifty and a great tool for those of you with Pin Boards that are of favorite quotes, for example.

Tune in on Monday for how to measure your influence on Pinterest.
