Creating quotes for social media is extremely popular. It is a nice way to express your thoughts, points of view or feelings. If you can create good quotes, than there is a chance it will go ‘viral’ and be shared many times.
I currently use different tools to create quotes. I will give you a fine list of six quote creators.
QuotesCover.com is one of the easiest ways to transform a text quote into a photo quote.
This website is specifically intended to create covers for Twitter, Facebook or other social media. You first choose a quote from the website or one of your own quotes, and then you go to the next step to choose for which social media it is intended.
Then in step 3 you can choose the design. Different fonts, colours, backgrounds, you name it.
It couldn’t be easier.
Very diverse and very simple, because you can create a new design with the next and previous button.
A great quotes maker is Fotor.com, with which you can make quotes but also photo collages.
You can choose from different templates with backgrounds and then add the quote.
Then you can download the image of the quote, or email it to the various social media channels, such as Facebook or Pinterest.
Canva.com is a partly paid tool, and has a lot of options to add a nice quote to a photo.
It’s more than just a photo, because you can also choose from infographic like templates. A few designs are for free, but obviously not the nicer ones.
But all designs only cost one Dollar. So it is doable. With Canva you can also share and save the quotes, so you can create your own quotes page. Canva is one of my personal favourites.
You can also create quotes with Tegelspreukmaker, a Dutch website where you can place the well known texts onto a tile.
Still popular, but not very original. Also easy to share and their revenue model comes from offering to place the quote on a mug or real tile. This you have to pay for.
PicMonkey is also a good quote creator with a lot of options. With the editor you can upload or choose a photo or background.
With a lot of design possibilities, like adding a shadow or effect to your image. You can try it for free for a month, and you can use the editor without having to subscribe.
Buffer now has the tool Pablo with which you can easily create a quote and place it on social media with a few clicks.
You do need to be signed up with Buffer. But very useful.
PS. Do you need some inspiration to create good quotes? Here is another tip:
Curated Quotes is a website which collects quotes. Fun to see all of the great quotes that are made and you can also get some inspiration for good quotes which people have created themselves.
I myself have used Goodreads, a huge collection of quotes.
Make quotes with the app
There are also many apps available that allow you to create qutes. Quotes Creator is an easy way to create quotes and share them with the world. You can also add your own watermark, logo and QR code.
Another app is WordSwag, which can be downloaded on both the iPhone and Android devices.
