How To: Set Up A Pinterest Business Account

The first and most important step to getting started on Pinterest for your business is making sure you have set up your account as a business profile.

Without doing this you will not be able to claim your website, track analytics, or run Pinterest ads.

There are a few options on how you can create or switch to a business account.

1. Convert your current personal account to a business account

If you have created a personal account for business purposes, you can easily switch your personal account to a business account. Your pins and followers will remain the same and you have the option to switch back to a personal account at any time.

Follow these steps:

Log into your personal Pinterest account > Head to Settings > Account settings > Scroll down to Account changes > Select Convert to a business account, then click Convert account > Fill out the required info to build your business profile.

2. Create a linked business account

If you would like to easily switch between your personal account and your business account, you can create a linked business profile under your personal account. This means your email and password will remain the same. You can have up to 4 business pages on each personal account.

Follow these steps:

Log into your personal Pinterest account > From the top-right of your screen find the arrow & click “Add Account” > Select create free business account > Select create a linked business account and follow the prompts until your business account is complete!

3. Create a brand new business account:

If you would like to start fresh and create an account with your business email, your best option is to create a brand new business account.

Follow these steps:

Head to Pinterest > Select Sign Up > Create a Business Account > Enter your email and create a password > Select Create Account > Complete the required info until your business account is set up and ready to go.

Congratulations, you’ve just set up a Pinterest Business account and can now get pinning!
