Removing a Board from Your Pinterest Account

Perhaps you are moving locations and that local board is no longer relevant to your business, maybe you’re getting out of Residential and focusing only on Commercial Real Estate, so you don’t need that big board of Backyards. Whatever the reason, there may come a point where you would like to delete a board from your Pinterest Account. If you have created this board on your own Account, then you do have this ability.

While I would suggest attempting first to repurpose the board- can you perhaps rename it and salvage some of its use? If you find that this board is just no longer in line with your needs, you can see the steps below to remove your board.

There is also the chance you do not own this board. Are you a collaborator to any board? If so you will not have the ability to delete the board in full, however you can remove yourself as a collaborator and thus stop the board from appearing on your Pinterest Account. Scroll below “Deleting a Board on Your Account” for step by step instructions on removing yourself as a collaborator.

How to Convert a Personal Pinterest Account to a Business Account

If you have already been using a Personal Pinterest Account for your Business, there is no reason to worry about needing to start fresh. 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 Locate and click “Convert Now” under “Already have an account?”


Step Two:

A pop up window will appear, fill out the important information and click “Convert”


Step Three:

Upon clicking “Convert” you will be brought to your new Business Page with a Welcome Note from Pinterest. Under the Welcome message will be some new features available only to Business Accounts. Take a look at your analytics and explore everything else.


How to create a board on your Pinterest account

You can set up an unlimited amount of “Boards” on you Pinterest account. Typically boards are categorized just like the topics you chose when you set up your account. The strategy here is fairly simple: create boards that inspire ideas for your prospects and current clients.

>Board Examples: Kitchens, Bedrooms, Dining Rooms, Backyards, etc.

Step 1:

You will need to be logged in and viewing your profile. Click “+Create a Board” on the left and choose the “Create a Board” option.


Step 2: 

You will be prompted to name the board, write a small description and choose a category. If you would like the board to only be visible by you select “Keep It Secret”, however if you will be using the board for work related pins I highly suggest leaving it public.


Hit “Create Board” and now you are ready to pin pictures to your boards.
