It is next to impossible to tap into the power of Pinterest without having images in your website, right? But many marketers are often unsure of how to use complex graphic editing software such as Photoshop. Many are working with tight budgets and find it difficult to afford stock photos or a professional graphic designer. Today, I’m here to tell you about another great online tool to put in your collection that will help you create easy and FREE images for Pinterest (and your other online needs).
In this week’s episode of the podcast I bring you a conversation with Jesse Michelsen, founder and creator of IdPinThat.com. This amazing site does something that other online image creation tools don’t. I’d Pin That brings you cost free, royalty free, attribution free images AND allows you to easily edit them for commercial use all in one spot.
Not only is Jesse the brains behind I’d Pin That, he was also behind Manteresting , a site similar to Pinterest designed for men. He has since sold that site but shares some of his insight on how men use platforms such as Pinterest in different ways than women do. This can be really helpful to business with a male related product or service using Pinterest.
In the early days, Ben, Evan and the crew made an attempt at monetizing Pinterest though affiliate links. Jesse and I discuss how he was able to monetize Manteresting in a similar way. Will the rumored $1 million requirement for Pinterest advertising really be a good idea?
Jesse has now moved on to a new chapter in his entrepreneurial life with I’d Pin That. He built the site in hopes to offer his clients and others a place to create images for their online content without violating copyright laws and without being complicated to use.
