Love Pinterest – 4 Tools to Make It Easier & Faster

Everywhere you turn people are talking about Pinterest.  It’s officially the 3rd largest social networking the world and it refers more than double the traffic of YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn combined.

The average user now spends more time on Pinterest than Facebook and Twitter combined. However the biggest complaint I hear is that it takes so much time!

Pinterest – 4 Tools to Make It Easier and Faster, check them out.  I personally love each and every one of them.

#1 Pinerly

You will need to request an invitation to Pinerly.  Go to their website at http://www.Pinerly.com and submit your email address.  You will be sent to a second screen and see this message.

“Pinerly is not open to the public. Share your unique link on Facebook and Twitter to get ahead of your competition! Invite friends, co-workers, family… you get the point. Friends qualify you for an earlier invite and bonus features. Please note, signing up from the same computer multiple times will not count =) “

Once you have your account you will easily be able to:

  • Easily compare click-throughs, likes and re-pins for campaigns
  • Pin incredible suggested content
  • Follow interesting new people
  • View valuable Pinterest tips

#2 Pinterest Bookmarklet

I have another blog post on how to install this. This is one way it can really be faster to pin!

Once installed in your browser, the “Pin It” button lets you grab an image from any website and add it to one of your pinboards. When you pin from a website, we automatically grab the source link so we can credit the original creator.

#3 Pinstamatic

Pinstamatic really allows you to dress up your pins, show a little bit more of who you are by adding more content to each pin.

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. http://pinstamatic.com/

 

#4  Pinvolve 

This is an application that allows you to maintain Pinterest and Facebook together. It bridges the gap between the two, making it less work for you. I immediately installed on this one on our Butterfly Networking Facebook Fan Page.

    Hi Carla,

    I am enjoying Pinterest much more than I thought I would at first. Truly there is more to it than meets they eye. 😉 Thanks for sharing these tools. However, one of the links did not work for me, not even when i manually entered the URL. (I use Chrome browser). I wonder if the site is down:

    Nice Carla! I am just getting started on Pinterest. I am trying to be very selective and only pin special things. I thank you sooooo much for these extra ideas to help us with Pinterest.

  10. Thanks Carla for introducing me to the latest tools. I’ve heard of one of them, but not the others.
    Pinterest is one platform I use sparingly. Because I’m on all the social platforms, I try focusing on only two, but need to be on the rest of them. I visit Pinterest once or twice a week.
    These tools will come in handy to make it an easier process.
    Thanks again,

  12. I’m just getting started on Pinterest, and I really like it. But right now it still feels like “one more thing” that I don’t have time for, so I really appreciate anything that will help me get things done a little faster.

    Thank you for another great, informative post, Carla!

  13. Carla,

    Thanks for explaining these tools. I have heard of them but have not tried any yet. I have literally spent hours on Pinterest. I have some breathtaking boards – incredible places around the world, the joy of seeing animals, all kinds, enjoying life, and I also have boards for my Kindle books and blogs and articles and so much more. And it is fun sharing with others – a bit like show and tell.

    Warmly,

    Dr, Erica

    Hi Carla,

    Thanks for sharing these Pinterest tools. I’m on Pinerly, but I have not heard of the other three. I am curious to see how Pinvolve works, so I will check it out. I really like Pinterest as a social platform and I am noticing a huge influx of marketers using it as a way to increase their exposure and monetize. Thanks for staying ahead of the game and keeping us updated on trends of the social media world.

  18. Carla, this is the second article that had me take a good look how to use it. I believe just responding to the endless invitations I receive is overwhelming enough. It is great to utilize with Facebook for most.

    I find it useful yet for me right now I have enough tools and social platforms as it is. You will find yourself never leaving your home office with all the stuff to keep updated and creative content being required.

    I do like how it has exploded and look forward to see what it would be like after 5 years.

    Thanks Carla, for keeping this reader updated. Who knows I am give in later on in my life.

    Hi Carla!
    Please send me an invitation to Pinerly..
    These all look like really cool Pinterest tools. I try to get on there a few times a week. Maybe some of these tools will help to integrate it and make it easier.
    Thanks for all you to to enlighten us!

  21. Hi Carla, thank you for this information on Pinterest. Now I know who to go to when I need to learn about this.

    While I did sign up one day, I have never been back and I’m not sure what the point of it is. As far as I can tell, it has something to do with “pinning” pictures, but that’s all I got. At this point, I’m still working on my online social graces.

    Nonetheless, you have provided additional tools which will be helpful when I get around to figuring out this.

    Thanks again!
