Pinterest is quickly becoming a go-to platform for businesses around the world. With over 367 million monthly users, out of which 71% are female, Pinterest helps advertisers reach an engaged audience of 169 million people. Not only that, but keep in mind that 97% of searches on Pinterest are unbranded, which means people are open to discovering new brands and businesses. So it’s pretty clear – a Pinterest Business account is what you need to get.

In this post, we guide you through setting up your own Pinterest Business account so you can start leveraging this platform’s features today!

Step 2: Set Business Profile

Click the edit icon and add your profile picture. We recommend using your brand logo so it’s instantly recognizable. After that, enter your business name, website link, country/ region, and language. If you don’t have a website, you can select the Not Yet option.

Step 4: Get Customized Suggestions

Based on your brand type, Pinterest Business will ask you for some more details so they can tailor their recommendations for your account. However, if you want to skip this, select ‘I’m Not Sure,’ and click Next

Step 5: Confirm Ad Preferences

Here, you can select ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ if you do or don’t want to run ads, otherwise select ‘I’m Not Sure Yet.’ We would recommend selecting ‘I’m Not Sure Yet,’ as Pinterest boasts an over 50% conversion rate, with more than half the users making a purchase after seeing business content on the platform, so keep this option open for your brand.
