Pinterest have become the latest social networking website to offer specific pages for businesses. It seems that with the growing presence of businesses within Pinterest they are going to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Facebook and LinkedIn to offer some added functionality (or at least a way to differentiate your business from the average user). I have just created the Wow Internet Pinterest page and it couldn’t have been easier. Here’s how you can do it…
The first step is to visit http://business.pinterest.com and log-in with your existing Pinterest account. You will then see this lovely big button asking you to ‘convert your existing account’, so give this a click and you will be presented with a form to fill out with your business information.
Once you have filled out this page, you’re good to go! You will be forwarded to your shiny new Pinterest business page. Below is a quick screenshot of what the Wow Internet Pinterest page looks like:
The final things that need to be done are to verify your website which involves adding a small HTML file to your web server in order to link your Pinterest account to your site. To do this, simply click on the box at the bottom of your profile page that says ‘verify website’. Follow the instructions they give and you will have successfully linked your website to your Pinterest account.
That was easy, wasn’t it? Now you can Pin away, safe in the knowledge that your users can identify your account as a business. Marvellous! Feel free to check our page out and send some love our way.
