Should I switch my Personal Pinterest account to a Business Pinterest Account?
If you are having trouble deciding which way to go then there are some important points to help you make a better decision.
- If you use Pinterest to generate an income or improve business, you should have a Pinterest Business Account.
- If you use your personal account a lot for personal things that you like, you may want to set up a separate business account as well.
- If you have a large number of followers and use your personal account mainly for business, you may want to convert it to a business account.
- If your personal account has mostly personal stuff, you may not want to change it up and switch towards a new business account for business purposes.
How to Convert your Personal Pinterest Account to a Pinterest Business Account
To convert your existing Pinterest account into a Pinterest business account, simply log onto your account and follow the ‘Pinterest for business’ area. Once there, you will find a red button indicating a conversion of your personal account into a business account. If you want to convert, hit the big red button and the process of conversion will successfully start allowing you to change or modify your account details such as business type, business activities and other similar info. Other details include your business name, your goals, about us information etc.
Creating a New Pinterest Business Account
For those who want to create a new business account must sign up for a new business account. If you are signing up and you are asked to choose an account type, specify business instead of personal.
