These days with the rise of Pinterest it's more important than ever to include images in your online content. One way to do this simply is to make quote images. This image is known as a "pull-quote".
Pinterest is now the third biggest social network (after Facebook and Twitter) and yet and so don't get as much traffic to their posts from Pinterest as they should. Now there is a new tool to help bloggers increase their Pinterest traffic - ProQuoter.
ProQuoter allows you to easily create beautiful quote images of pull-quotes for your articles. Pull-quotes have an amazing ability to draw the reader's attention. They can turn a dull piece of text into an incredible visually stimulating article. If you don't have any exciting images to spice up your article then they can be even more important.
When writing articles, it is important not to have blocks of dense, impenetrable text. The human eye is drawn to space and color and it can be just as important as the actual text.
Pull quotes also offer an important way to highlight the key message of a piece of text - the 'take-aways'. You can even include actual quotations in your pull-quotes as long as they support your message.
With the rise of Pinterest having attractive images in your writing is even more important. If you can include inspiring, or funny quote images in your writing then people are more likely to share them on Pinterest which will bring more people to your blog entry. Pinterest even has a special category just for quotes, and many people on Pinterest will have a specific board for inspiring, interesting, or humorous quotes.
