Pinterest is a visual bookmarking platform used to discover and save creative ideas. Founded in March 2010, with 175 million[1]  monthly users is becoming one of the fastest growing social network and top traffic driver for businesses.

I recently switched my personal Pinterest account to a business account, so thought of sharing my experience and process. It was very easy to convert and the business account comes with a lot of useful features like analytics, promoted & rich pins, board showcase, ads and pin stats. If you think you can benefit from some of these features, then you must consider switching to Pinterest Business account.

1. Log in to your account and go to your profile page by clicking on your name on the top right side.

2. Click on the three dots (…) on top of your name. 

3. Select “Switch to a business account”.

4. Fill the business name, business type, and website (optional). And click Done. 

5. That’s it, your business account is ready! Here is an example of how your account will look like. Also, feel free to hop over to my Pinterest Account and check it out.
