Steps to Creating A Pinterest Business Account

  1. Sign up for Pinterest Business: Sign up for your Pinterest Business account here. Be sure to create your account with your business email, and share your password with all marketing and advertising team members.
  2. Build Your Profile: It’s crucial to have a complete and visually compelling Pinterest Business profile, because this page is the first place Pinners will visit to learn about your business. Customize the “about you” section to make your profile unique. Include information about your business, like any products and services you offer, as well as business locations. Pinterest suggests using your company logo as your profile photo to remind Pinners whose content they’re viewing.
  3. Make Some Boards: Pinterest boards allow you to group your Pins into cohesive themes. Identify a few themes that align with your business – such as “interior design” or “brunch inspiration” – and build your boards based on them. Some Pinterest users prefer to keep their boards aesthetically congruent, keeping color palettes and images similar within boards. Ultimately, how you design your boards is up to your creative discretion!
  4. Get Pinning and Keep Pinning: Now it’s time to fill your Pinterest boards! You can start by repinning content from accounts you like that align with your business’ brand. Create your own Pins using photos of your products and services that you already have on hand. Be sure to check out 5 Steps to Creating the Perfect Pin to guide you!
