The 5 Easy Tools for a Pinterest Manager
If you’re not a designer and you don’t want to invest in Photoshop or InDesign, Canva is a free option to design beautiful graphics and it’s very easy to use! There are some templates and you can customize them with your brand colors and fonts.
Canva is my bestie as a Pinterest manager and an online educator. I get to make different graphics and I know I am going to sound crazy but in my free time I play around with canva like I’m playing a game 😂.
If you want to upload your own fonts, get access to millions of photos and icons, keep organized with folders and be able to resize your designs, I’d suggest you choose Canva Pro although you can get the most of Canva with the free version.
I use this for free stock photos and stock videos that I use for educational Instagram reels. There are many places you can get stock photos. All you have to do is find what works for you and for me pexels is the best option. As a Pinterest manager, eventually you will need to use stock photos it’s an occupational hazard.
I honestly don’t know what I would do without Tailwind. First, it saves me so much time. Not only can I schedule all the pins in advance, but Tailwind also gives me access to communities, Tailwind Tribes, and other great features such as Smartloop and Board Lists. An amazing time saver!
I am a freebie girl I mean who doesn’t love anything free. Just like Canva, you can still get the most out of the free option of Tailwind.
4. PIN IT BUTTON
If you want people to share your content on Pinterest, you need to make it very easy. That’s why I recommend a Pin It Button.
There are certainly many ways to track your success on Pinterest. I use Pinterest Analytics, Tailwind Insights, and Google Analytics.
I’ve found the latter to be the most complete and reliable.
When I onboard a new client, they give me viewer’s access to their Google Analytics and that’s where I can see the traffic increase.
