Pinterest has contacted me twice now that I can switch to a Business Account. Are there any advantages? Do they charge for this service? The email has a button to switch. Does it give the opportunity to read some info about it or are you automatically switched over?
It is free (for now?) and apparently comes with some useful tools. In the long run if the page is to promote a business under a business name they will probably force the change. If it is really a personal page under your name but includes some business stuff IMHO it is safer to leave it.
I've received this email too from Pinterest and had the same question. I wonder down the road, if they are going to start charging those with business accounts to post things, or harass those with business accounts to advertise on Pinterest. I'm very curious to see the other responses you get to this question. Thanks for asking it!
I think it is worth joining the business group. It gives you extra status and security and more feedback on your account. It feels like you are being treated as a partner. Not sure what the ad program on Pinterest will deliver. Worthwhile IMO.
I have one personal account and one business account on pinterest, but frankly i see more repins and followers on my personal account. I have not seen any major change in traffic owing to business account. Of course, others are bound to differ
They are already pushing advertising pretty hard to business accounts.
Thanks everyone for the advice. I think I will leave things as they are for now.

Concerning having two accounts with Hub Pages for the purpose of varying subject matter . . .I have always noticed when signing out, the question of, "Do you want to sign in on another account, or something to that affect?" So, if one does that, which would be a challenge, can your...
