Pinterest for Business?

Posted on 14 November 2012 by Linda Joseph

Do you use Pinterest for Business?

If you do, you can now set up a Pinterest account for your business! Many of us have been using Pinterest for both personal and business exposure.

Now you have the opportunity to sign up  for a Pinterest business account.

According to the article in Mashable:

Companies will now be able to create business accounts, which allows them to enter just a business name — rather than a first and last — and verify their websites using a hidden line of code. Once the code has been recognized, businesses will receive a verification badge on their Pinterest profile pages. It’s not quite as good as Twitter’s profile verification — it would still be easy for someone to impersonate a company on Pinterest by verifying a URL that was similar but not owned by the brand — but it’s a start.

Here is the good news: if you are a business and have set up a personal account, then you will have the opportunity to convert the personal account into a business account.

Here is a video showing you how:

If you have a mix of business and personal pins – which most of us business owners have, you may want to start a new account for your business and leave your personal account as is.

What are you going to do?  Go to Pinterest Business to get started.
