Step 5: Are you interested in running ads?

Once you have gone through the company profile selection, Pinterest asks you if you would be interested in running ads on the platform. Select “Yes" as it is always helpful to set this up on your account for future campaigns.

You will notice that your username is automatically set, but you can change it in this section. Next, update the “About” section. Keep this brief, but try and use as many keywords related to your business as you can fit in.

Once you are happy that you have added all of your details, select “Save”. You are now ready to start creating content.

Why get a business account for my personal trainer business?

For example, with a business account, you can access the Pinterest Business Hub and Pinterest Analytics, where you can review and analyze your posts. Finally, a business account will allow you to create any type of Pin, which you are unable to do with a personal account.
