How Your Pinterest Profile can Attract New Customers

Before you begin pinning on Pinterest, you MUST create your Pinterest profile.  Most people think “Oh, that is simple”, but it isn’t.   There is so much more to your profile that most give it credit.

6 Components to Your Pinterest Profile

There are 6 components that are key to Creating Your Pinterest Profile. First, if you do not have a Pinterest Business account then you can convert your personal account if you want.  You can also choose to keep your business separate from your personal account, then start a new business account.  Use the drop down menu from the top right, “About” then choose “For Businesses”.  You will then get this screen shot and you can convert to a business account and then create your Pinterest profile for your business.

1. Business Name:  Select the name that you will be branding online.  If you own a storefront or online business, then use that name. If you are a consultant, online marketer, network marketer, or an author then you want to brand yourself by using your name.

Since I am a training program writer and author I am branding myself so I use my name.  I do own a company that I do business under but Conceptual Training & Design is not a brand name that people will recognize so I brand myself instead.

2. Username:  The number of characters are limited so you may have to get creative on your user name.  A best practice is to use the same username as your other social media sites: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.

3. Profile Picture:  Your profile picture measurements should be 165px X165px.  If you are branding your company, then I recommend using your logo.  If you are branding yourself, then place a friendly and professional picture of yourself.  I recommend that you use the same profile picture being used in other social media platforms.  This way your picture is consistent and you become a friendly face with your name.

You can also get a little creative.  Watch this short 2-minute video that shows you some fun examples on how to create a fun profile picture that is still professional and helps you build trust with your followers.

4. Profile Description:  This is your prime real estate and you have 160 characters, so make them count!  There are many tactics you should follow to optimize your profile, if you don’t, then you will not get found in the search engines.

5. Website Verification:  Pinterest offers a website verification so your website will appear in your profile and you don’t have to take up any of your 160 characters from your About section with your business website.  In 2016, verification has been typically reserved for larger brands.  When the website is verified on Pinterest, a “red check mark” appears on the profile picture.

6. Showcase:  This is a newer feature that Pinterest added in 2016.  You have a choice to use it or not use it, but it can work great as an online catalog.  You can select up to five boards and use them as a showcase.


The steps above seem very simple and straightforward.  However, even after business owners follow these simple instructions; they still email me because they aren’t getting any attention on Pinterest.  It takes me only a few seconds to see why.  I had so many requests that I created a training session to teach all the details necessary to follow for your Pinterest profile.

Do you want your Pinterest profile and boards to get found on the front page of Google?  Then you need to know how to implement these six steps!
