Building your community profile


Sign in

It’s easy to sign in—you just need to be logged in to your Pinterest Business account. When you try to join the community, you’ll see a prompt to authorize this site to use your Pinterest Business login. 

Complete your profile

After you've logged in with your business account take a few minutes to fill out your profile. You can access this page by clicking on your name in the top right-hand corner and selecting “My Settings” from the dropdown menu. There, you can personalize your profile, adjust your community settings and control your notifications.   

First, you'll want to pick an avatar. Your avatar represents how you want to show up in the community. You can choose the first letter of the alphabet for however you want it to represent you, your business or brand. You also have the option to upload an image to your profile. Whether it’s a headshot, or a business logo, the choice is yours! 



Next, make sure to fill out your profile basics. Have fun customizing your profile with things like your Pinterest username, a custom signature and a short bio to help community members learn more about you. Don’t forget to also share your business vertical with us! This is visible on your profile, so you can quickly identify other community members in the same industry as you. 



Here's an example of a fully customized profile on the Business Community!

Totally trivial question... 🙂 Is there a way to add cool stuff to our signature or are we limited to text?


Hey @karen_whitworth, thanks for the question! Right now, just limited to text, but letting community members add more to their signature is something we're thinking about. Good to hear that's something you're interested in! Will keep in mind. 😊


I filled in the profile info etc -- but I can't find the "images" gallery that is supposed to be on the profile page. 


@nan47 I believe what you’re looking for is under ‘My Settings’. Try that, and let me know—I’m happy to help! 😃

How do I find the spot to add Info - for profile ... Ive found the avatar and changed it but cant seem to see where to add anything else



Hey there @magpiesprings0308! You can update your bio by going to My Settings > Personal > Personal Information. From here, you can add your bio, industry vertical, a signature or anything else you'd like to share on your public profile. Hope this helps. 🙂 


@kellyacavanaugh Thanks -- found it.


@nan47 Awesome!

Hey, that was quite helpful. I need some guidance regarding how to start pinning and how to gain some followers who would like my art? I would love to be a part of it, and would love to inspire many people through my creativity and art work. please help me for the same. thank you so much @PinterestGabby 


Its Really Helpful.


@dogiparthysrina & @niyatilimbachia, to grow or gain followers—create good content. But that’s how to gain followers, likes, leads & sales on any platform so you’ll want to learn what makes a good pin. You're in the right place for that. 😊

🔹For instance, longer-shaped pins typically do better than square pins...
🔹You’ll want to find & become very familiar with a few photo editing apps, if you don’t already use photoshop. I can list the names of some if you would like?
🔹Try to use beautiful imagery, but don’t forget that your description is important, too. Pinterest uses this to determine how to display your pin in search. It’s important to use keywords in your description for this reason, too. 
🔹Before I create a pin & write a description, I ask myself: "What would people be happy to repin in order to make their boards look even better?" From there, I create. Try to learn everything about your target audience, & use your Pinterest analytics. Put your focus on what your audience will like, and then create it. 

If you haven’t yet heard of Tailwind, I highly recommend it. Also, follow Pinterest for Business on Pinterest & on Facebook for tips & the latest news. 


Hope this helps,

OMG @kellyacavanaugh, how did I miss this amazing response!? Great tips, thank you so much for sharing! 


 I want to claim this website Apksite on Pinterest. How can I do this?


Hey @PinterestGabby, I'm always happy to help! So, @ranaadil554, is that your website? If so, go to your settings on Pinterest. When you're in your settings, follow the directions under "claim".

Hi All.  I am looking for help in how to remove an old twitter handle (@thatwhichisgood) that I  no longer used.

I take it that it is embedded between my 'website URL'  section and my 'About your profile'  but for the life of me can't find it to delete it.

What is being displayed:·@thatwhichisgood·That Which Is Good! Whimsical Ideas, Humor, and Gifts for Adventurous People. Ideas, Fun, Gifts curated in colorful fun boards. #thatwhichisgood #affiliate
Thank  you for your help!!! Marie

@thatwhichisgood, that is your Pinterest username that you are seeing right there, not a Twitter handle. There's no way that I know, to remove our Pinterest usernames from that spot. 😊

Hello! I think have a silly question here. What would you recommend for my "industry"? I have an online magazine that provides writing/publishing resources for writers of the youth and educational resources for children, including books, printables etc. But I'm not sure which category I'm a better fit for: "education", "entertainment", or "media"? Thank you!


Not a silly question, @kidpressroom! Education sounds like it'd fit well here, what do you think? 


Sounds great! Thank you @PinterestGabby. I appreciate that. 😊


Thanks for this info!
