Although not a tool solely designed for Pinterest, PicMonkey is a must have tool for every Pinterest user who isn’t well versed with Photoshop and is not interested in hiring a designer. PicMonkey allows you to create slick images and collage for your website or product promotion.
PicMonkey makes making beautiful images that convert, a child’s play and you can pin them to your account for higher conversions.

The images that you pin determine your conversions, and you wouldn’t want to scare away visitors with a drastically designed image!

Formerly known as PinWoot, ViralWoot is a great tool for every Pinterest, power user. This is a great tool for finding followers for your Pinterest account. Make your account more interesting for letting other users on ViralWoot to discover and follow your pin boards. You can also schedule your pins with ViralWoot, using their bookmarklet.

ViralTag is the buffer tool for visual content. It supports almost all the popular social-networking sites, but what interest me most about ViralTag is support for Pinterest. Here you can quickly buffer Pinterest pins for future publishing.
ViralTag’s powerful calendar allows you to schedule your Pins easily by adding images, adding text and overlay quotes beforehand. It also provides a dashboard to track your Pinterest performance and suggest tips for increasing ROI.
Pinterest analytics is a built-in Pinterest tool for businesses. Pinterest recently released their official Analytics tool for keeping track of your content and followers. To use this tool, all you would need is to verify your website or have a page with a website already attached to it. You can keep track of pins, re-pins, impressions, followers, etc. all from their in-house analytics tool!
This is a decent tool for keeping track of your performance on Pinterest, but it doesn’t highlight all of your Pinterest activity. You can keep track of what Pinners like the most and make the most of it to improve the content that you share.
I am told that the Pinterest team is working hard on improving their in-house analytics tool and a few updates are scheduled to make the experience better.

Very impressive collection of tools… Will try few of them. But personally, I think my traffic from Pinterest drastically dropped when they decide to convert their site in SSL. Also, when they decide to change the source link. Before it was the page where was hosted the picture, now, it’s directly the physical emplacement on the picture (which of course have no link back to your site in the end).
Too bad, I had plenty of traffic from them a year or two ago but now, close to nothing…
Really very helpful article on pinterest traffic. I glad to hear about pinterest analytics.
Frankly speaking, i haven’t heared about this tool but, now i’m going to try this one.
i had a lot of confusion on pinterest before in the matter of tools. I am not a big pinterest user. From today i am going to use pinterest and related tools which is said by you. You are the greatest inspiration to me. Thanks 4 the post.
