1. To Maximise Pinterest for Your Business – Set up a Business Account

Below are some of my boards: 



To be honest if you wish to use Pinterest for businesses purposes, it’s important that you specifically sign up for a business account. The usual sign-up page is for personal accounts so — to create a business account, use this site.

Emily La Grange a Super Social Media Blogger Shared a Step by Step Guide on how best to make that Pinterest for Business account count and get you Leads! 

And to clear some cobwebs; if you are new to Pinterest; pins are simply the images/content you share on Pinterest, and boards are the spaces that you use to organize that content — like visual bookmarks. And before you can start pinning anything, you’ll need to create your boards.  Pinterest for business gives you very clear guidance on how to best set up for maximum leverage!


And Below are 3 essential things you must implement in order to set up your pinterest for business account best:

  • Make sure you use a clear professional front facing image of YOU. Not a generic image or a product image. Remember this is Your Pinterest business account not your company product page! A great quality recognizable photo of your beautiful smiling face is always best. You are the brand right!
  • Ensure your Pinterest for business page description has Your Keyword/s and make sure people know that you are there to help them succeed.
  • Ensure your Boards descriptions also have your Keyword/s because Google indexes these. i.e. people can find your pinterest business page and offers via search engines.


2.     To Maximise Pinterest for Your Business – Use Rich Pins (I love Article Pins)

9 Easy Steps to ROCKING Your Pinterest for Business! - Use Rich Pins!

An Article Rich Pin

Rich pins are (in Pinterest’s own words) pins that “include extra information right on the Pin itself”. At the moment, there are 5 types of Rich pins:  article, recipe, movie, product and place. As a blogger you probably use images in your posts, and as long as an article features an image, it can be pinned to Pinterest. With this kind of Pin, users can automatically see your article’s headline, author and a story description — So they are easily searchable. This distinguishes them from other content on the platform. And this is what makes pinterest for your business awesome. Your pins and articles can be found via search engines.  Again head over to emilylagrange’s blog later, to learn how to set up Rich Pins.

But Here is a super tip

Use/Create vertical images for your special business boards. Long photos (vertical picture collages) or infographics do really well on pinterest for business boards. They take up valuable Pinterest real estate in the feed, which makes your brand and offers standout. Bringing you more targeted followers and subscribers too!

As of today, the best image size for pinterest for your business is approx. 600 px by 1200 px.



3. To Extend your Pinterest for your Business – Add a watermark to Your Images.
