So how does a business get setup on Pinterest?
There are a couple of tricks I have been using to setup businesses on Pinterest that have worked great for me.
1) Don't request an invite, ask a current member to invite you. Invites from members come much, much faster to you than requested invites.
2) When you sign-up, use your business' Twitter account. Remember, Pinterest auto-populates your profile info from whatever account you link, so you don't want to link to your personal accounts. You also cannot sign-up with a Facebook Page (even if you are currently using Facebook as that page), so stick to Twitter.
Make sure you are signed-in to your business' Twitter account and then sign-up for Pinterest using the Twitter link.
3) Once signed up, go into your settings and setup a email/password log-in. This will make it so that you don't have to be logged into your business' Twitter profile every time you want to sign in to Pinterest.
This process should get your business up and running on Pinterest. In future posts, I will have some handy tips for building your following and generating content.
