Pinterest Now Allows Business Accounts

Recently Pinterest Product Manager Cat Lee, announced on her blog that it is now possible to create a Pinterest business account. “We want to help more businesses provide great content on Pinterest and make it easy to pin from their websites. Today, we’re taking a first step toward that goal with some free tools and resources.”

Cat Lee also stated “We now have two sets of terms—one for people and one for businesses. The business terms help guide businesses on how to use Pinterest. They also enable us to separate the provisions meant for businesses from those meant for regular people. As a result, we updated our user terms to be half as long. We also took the opportunity to simplify the language as much as possible.”

If you don’t have an account with Pinterest, you can sign up on Pinterest for a business account. Existing personal accounts on Pinterest can be easily converted by following the steps on the business site.

Think of Pinterest as an online bulletin board where photographs can be pinned. If your business can be helped by displaying images of your products, then Pinterest is a great marketing tool. Take a look at the following Pinterest accounts to see how photographs/images can enhance your business:
