You can easily convert your Personal Account into a Business Account without losing all of your Pins and Boards. As an added benefit, only Business Accounts can use Promoted Pins (Pins that are also paid ads designed to increase visibility), and only Business Accounts can access Pinterest Analytics.

 

Step One:

Make sure you are already logged into your Pinterest account. Head to business.pinterest.com. Locate and click “Convert Now” under “Already have an account?”

>Some suggestions for topics include: Architecture, Gardening, DIY, etc.
