Pinterest Answers Marketer Dreams with Launch of Business Accounts

Today Pinterest made the dreams of hundreds of brand marketers come true with the announcement of new business accounts. From their blog: “We want to help more businesses provide great content on Pinterest and make it easy to pin from their websites. Today, we’re taking a first step toward that goal with some free tools and resources.”

Changes are subtle and won’t be noticeable to Pinterest users. They include:

  • Updated terms of service: one for business and one for personal
  • Board, follow, profile and pin it widgets available for integration into third party sites (business and personal)
  • Ability to name an account after a brand versus the current first/last name format
  • Additional resources including best practices, guides for Pinterest use and case studies

No information was released on the possibility of generating additional views for pinned content ($$), however we’re pretty confident that news can’t be too far down the road.

    Thanks. Glad to have found your post. I just had my business name listed as a “first name”, with no “last name.” I feel a little more adult now.
