We all love Pinterest, but if you’re new to the platform or having trouble logging in, we’ve created a quick guide to signing up for Pinterest and logging into your Pinterest account.

There are a few ways to log into Pinterest. We’ll discuss all of the options within this post, whether you’re trying to login on your desktop, mobile, phone, tablet, or computer.

So many of us use Pinterest on the daily – myself included! It’s a great way to discover new ideas, get inspired, and plan things like new decor, workouts, meals, and even your new blog or business.

Additionally, Pinterest is a major powerhouse when it comes to driving traffic to your blog or business, so it can be a super beneficial tool if you are a blogger or business owner.

This is because in addition to Pinterest being full of amazing inspiration for your personal life, Pinterest is a visual search engine that allows people to find your inspiration, products and ideas.

People use Pinterest to find solutions for daily life and to plan life events like weddings, family meals, home renovations, and more!

As a small business owner or blogger, this knowledge can be the key to attracting your ideal customer to your website where they can make a purchase or consume your valuable content.

With over 450 million monthly users (wow!) in 2022, Pinterest can work for a wide variety of niches. Some popular ones include travel, DIY ideas, food and recipes, fitness, and social media marketing, but really there is virtually any niche you can imagine!

How to Sign Up For Pinterest

Begin the sign up process by going to Pinterest and clicking the “Sign up” button in the top right corner of the screen (see the above picture).

You’ll then be prompted to fill out the form for a personal account. If you would like to set up a business account (which it’s recommended that you do if you have a blog or business for the additional capabilities), don’t fill out the form and click the button at the bottom of the screen that says “Create a free business account” instead.

Then fill out that form and click “submit” to get signed up for Pinterest. Simple right?

Once you hit submit, Pinterest will ask you a series of questions to gauge what you’re interested in. This allows them to start populating your Pin feed (home page full of ideas and inspiration).

Next, you’ll want to go to your business or personal “hub” by clicking your name icon in the top right corner of the screen.

There, you’ll be able to edit your profile, add a profile picture, cover photo and description if you desire.

This is also where you’ll be able to find all of the boards you make and the pins you save.

Now that you’re signed up, you can start exploring and pinning!

How to Find the Pinterest Log In Website (Desktop)

Just like when you signed up for your account, first go to Pinterest and click the “Log in” button at the upper righthand corner of your screen.

How to Sign Up For a Pinterest Business Account

Pinterest business accounts are ideal for businesses and blogs alike. Signing up for a Pinterest business account allows you to access features like insights and advertising.

Pinterest insights allow you to see how many impressions, clicks, and saves your pins are getting. This is invaluable information for you and your blog or business!

You’ll also be able to access Pinterest’s advertising/promotion features so you can boost particular pins and get them viewed by a larger audience, or drive more people to your website, blog, or products.

Sign up for a Pinterest business account by:

First, go to Pinterest (on desktop or via the mobile app). Then instead of filling out this form, select the button at the bottom of the page that says “Create a free business account.”

Here you will fill out your information and sign up with either an email, or with your existing login for Facebook or Google.

Once you’ve filled in your information, hit “submit” and you’re good to go!
