Pinterest Setup Training

I am looking for training that focuses on Pinterest business account setup from top to bottom. Some things I am struggling with are getting Follow button and Shop On buttons to appear. Also, getting approved on VMP.

I tried mightily with the documentation and googling, but it's taking too much time.

Any recommendations?

I would be very interested in the same thing. It's very frustrating as I've been trying to set up my P business account for several months now. Hiring a social media manager to do this should not be the only option. There are very limited videos on YouTube about how to do this correctly, especially since P just changed all its algorithms and platform. The company would do itself and its business customers a great service by offering numerous online tutorials, video chats, webinars, online courses etc. The one online course I took was useless - it wasn't live so you couldn't ask questions or interact at all and the information was extremely basic. From the company's perspective, they must be missing out on a lot of ad dollars because small businesses can't figure out how to set up the accounts properly to post pins and rich pins verified account, etc.

@bloomandgrowmedia, @PinterestBrad can definitely help with any questions you have about our Verified Merchant Program! 🤗 @sitronu thanks for the feedback and sharing your experience with us, I'm curious to hear what online course you took that wasn't helpful, was that Pinterest Academy? Definitely hear you re: more tutorials, videos, etc. this is on our radar!

@PinterestGabby I tried Pinterest Academy.  Unless I missed something, it didn't cover items like getting a Follow Button or Shop On button. I don't recall it mentioning Rich Pins.

Is there more content than Getting Started, Cheatsheet and Planning for Success?
