Instaquote Sharing

Instaquote is obviously written for sharing your images and quotes on Instagram but as you can see you can share to Facebook and Twitter as well.

But more than just Facebook and Twitter, Instaquote allows you to save your images to your camera roll, from there you can use them anywhere you like.

The other feature which is awesome, is sharing to “other apps”.

If you watched the video you will see Instaquote picks up on other apps you have on your phone and allows you to share your images with those apps.

Some of the apps I share with are:

  • Flickr
  • Linkedin
  • Google+
  • Evernote
  • iCloud Photo Sharing

Finally, on the sharing front, if you liked your image so much you can save it as your phone background.

Really, the sharing options are endless, all just depends what you have loaded on your phone.

Promote your boards

Make sure your most popular boards are on the top row of your Pinterest account so people can see them without scrolling.  The ones above the fold as to say.  You can simply drag and drop the boards to get them in the order you want.

Make sure you create a pin that has the word “contest” or “giveaway”, the contest end date and what the prize is.
