1. Separate your personal and business account
If you’re using your current account for business, convert it into a business account at business.pinterest.com, or set up an entirely new account. While accounts will look the same, business accounts will have access to resources and tools developed specifically to help them grow.
2. Keep the Terms of Service in mind when you add original content
The cool thing about Pinterest is sharing all those beautiful photos and images. As you publish original photos and images of your business, employees, customers, products, services, etc., keep in mind that they can be modified, reproduced and distributed on Pinterest (and Pinterest only).
