Online Social Networking-Creating an Pinterest Account

First off you need to know what Pinterest is? In order to do your online social networking you need to know what you will gain from using the site.

Pinterest is an online pinboard. You can organize and share various things you like and allow others to get a taste of your personality.

“Surprising enough, user access to Pinterest still operates under an invitation-only basis” ~Hubspot

Here are the first steps to creating an account with Pinterest to do your online social networking.

Go to  http://www.

  • Request an invitation

  • Enter your email address (you can ask a friend who already has an account to invite you)

  • Register your account with the same email address you use for Twitter. (this will allow you to easily share your pins through your Twitter account)

  • You will sign up through the Twitter option (not the Facebook option)

  • Optimize your Pinterest profile (under the settings tab)

  • Choose your company name as your username and complete your profile information

  • Give a company description including a logo and a link to your website

Be sure you keep “Hide your Pinterest profile from search engines” Checked to OFF, so your profile can get indexed in search engines…………Visibility=OFF

Watch this video to see you can build your own strategy with Pinterest to do you online social networking.

It makes sense to use Pinterest this way for generating your traffic.


Happy Pinning!
