This blog post examines 10 tools that are helpful to “build” your Pinterest Followers. There are a considerable amount more plug-ins but as I mentioned before, the purpose for these plug-ins/programs is to help grow your Pinterest followers.

- Canva: Lots of stock images to put into your website and make pins for Pinterest. The best thing about this program is the capability to easily resize pins for various programs that you’re going to be using as a blogger. It’s my go-to program for making my Pinterest pins.
If you’d like to work on making Pinterest pins easier for you to make, please be sure to look at my link that provides you with a free guide on how to make viral pins that requires a subscription to my blog called PinArtwork Graphic Ease.
2. ConvertKit: This plug-in is used to create landing pages and pop-up forms. With it your ability to give your users the capability to specify what they can download or direct the users to a different URL all together (for example, your checklist is on your website). A lot of bloggers use this program to provide you with their free Pinterest templates.
3. Grammarly: Grammarly is an online program that looks at your spelling as well as your punctuation. It’s a lifesaver for the latter because I’m notorious in writing when it comes to where to place the comma. It doesn’t automatically fix mistakes for you but it’s the next best thing by underlining your potential mistakes which can quickly be done by reviewing the suggestion and clicking it (or dismissing it in its entirety). If you want your blog to stand out that you’re a professional blogger, I highly recommend that you get this free program.
4. MiloTree pop-up: Invite people on your blog to have them follow directly to your Pinterest or Facebook page.
Advantages to using the MiloTree App:
- Grows the number of followers to your Pinterest boards
- Grows your Social Media
- Easy to use and setup
- A pop-up that is effortless to set up on your blog
One of the easiest things you can do bring traffic to your website without SEO is through the use of an application called MiloTree Pop-up.
This program is especially recommended for new bloggers just starting out and that haven’t mastered how to use SEO. A lot of Pinterest bloggers are using this this program to entice you to follow Pinterest or Facebook.
5. PI Button: This plug-in button saves so much time by ensuring that when you add pins to your page you don’t have to manually code the page to ensure people can save your pins. Without the use of this plug-in, you’d be doing a lot more work that you’re already doing if you’re running a blog. It’s a big time-saver and a must-have for bloggers if you want Pinterest users to save your pins.
6. Social Warfare – Great tool for showing your social shares. These are the buttons that you might have already seen if you spend any time blogging. What I like about this feature is that you have an easy way to gauge how well the posts that you write are faring.
7. Tailwind: Select pins that you want to pin to Pinterest and schedule a variety of pins to schedule throughout the day in less than a couple of hours. Just pay attention to the built-in warnings so that you don’t get too carried away with pinning and stay within the recommended pinning guideline strategies (that aren’t readily available from Pinterest to prevent spam).
If you’re interested in joining Tailwind, the trial period is based on 100 scheduled Pins. A major advantage to using is Tailwind is that Tailwind is a Pinterest and Instagram Partner. If you’re on the edge of your seat and you’re waiting to start your Tailwind trial, I’d like to welcome you to the Tailwind family.
8. The Hoth: A tool that will provide you with ideas to write your blogs for days and weeks to come. Awesome tool! Just fill in a few short sentences as to what you want to relay to your audience, and the topic generator does the rest. I was able to create a year’s worth of posts (one per week) in less than 30 minutes using this program to plan future blog headline topics.
9. Trello (organizer) to plan your posts: This is an organizer that many bloggers use to keep track of organizing the goals and objectives for their blog. Personally, I don’t have a lot of experience using the program but I’m going to make an effort to start using it on a more frequent basis. One of my fellow bloggers does a great article on how you can use this program. I would encourage you to check out her blog ( Blog | Simplifying DIY Design ) if you’re interested in designing pins. Some really good pins on this site for you to emulate.
10. Yoast SEO: My number #1 favorite plug-in that makes SEO so much easier to use for your blog. Life with the use of Yoast SEO gives me the peace of mind to know that my Search Engine Optimization is working. I wrote a very detailed post that explains how to use the Yoast SEO program so that you can get green lights on your SEO a majority of the time.
