I’ll admit, I have not joined the Pinterest world.  Yet.

Pinterest has been busy!  There is lots of buzz about the Pinterest’s new business accounts.  There is opportunity for businesses to not only to make money, but also generate awareness for their products and services.

On November 14. Pinterest announced the launch of Pinterest for Business.  Businesses are now free to create commercial accounts on this social network platform.

Research firm comScore reported that the site grew to 26.7 million unique visitors up from 3.3 million in October 2011.

Acknowledging that there is a strong connection between browsing pins on Pinterest and actual purchasing.  Retailers have been paying close attention to the referral traffic coming from Pinterest. The business accounts at Pinterest are easy to set up.  As well, Pinterest shows their commitment to businesses in assisting them covert their personal accounts to business accounts.

I’m looking forward to spending some time on Pinterest and seeing what I can stumble on!
