Shareable Quote Images
Do your guests LOVE quotes but you just don't have time to create your own? WE HAVE YOU COVERED!
After years of Social Media Marketing management, we have found that quotes alway perform well. They have some of the highest interaction and impression rates on all social media channels, including Pinterest.
In order to help you out, we have created four social media quote images that you are welcome to use on your social media. By adding one quote per week to your social media calendar, you will be providing fun and consistent content for your guests (and potential guests).
Click on each quote to open it in a new tab at full size (1080 x 1080) and then right click and choose "Save Image As..." from the drop-down menu!
Free Desktop Wallpaper Calendars
Since the new year is here, let's welcome it in with fresh wallpaper! Aside from the monthly shareable quotes we will also be gifting you matching desktop wallpapers that you can use! You can choose between the calendar or the quote (you know, if you like it & want to use it all year!) Keep scrolling for directions...
Click on the image above or below to open the wallpapers in a new tab at full-size (2560 × 1600), and then right click and choose "Save Image As..." from the drop-down menu, and save it. Each major operating system has a different procedure for changing the wallpaper.
After saving the image of your choice, choose Apple menu > System Preferences. Click Desktop & Screen Saver. From the Desktop pane, select a folder of images on the left, then click an image on the right to change your desktop picture.
Window UsersLocate the image you want to become your wallpaper and open it. (By default, it will open up in Photos.) Right-click or tap-and-hold it to choose either Set as > Set as background or, in older versions of Windows, set as desktop background.
If you're having trouble just Google "how to change the desktop wallpaper on a ________" and enter the operating system you're using!
