Is it just me or do any other business owners experience an unhealthy amount of anxiety when it comes to social media platforms and managing them all? I am slowly starting to organize my personal and business accounts keeping them separate is important to me. I decided to start with Pinterest.
Going from one account to another is such a hassle and a complete time-suck. After some internet research, I found two ways to easily manage all of my Pinterest accounts in one place effortlessly and seamlessly. It takes a little set up work, but after that, you’re golden. Also, it is completely possible to use both methods simultaneously, like I have done; at least until I decide which one works best for me in the long run.
How to Manage Multiple Pinterest Accounts (For Free)
Lovely Blog Academy keeps up with managing her various multiple Pinterest accounts in her web browser, specifically Google Chrome. In her own words,
I’ll show you how to create multiple user profiles in Chrome. In each profile, you’ll log into the corresponding Pinterest account ONCE. Then you can switch between them without logging in and out! Simple.
She has very detailed instructions to do so and even includes step by step screenshots and a video. You can’t mess this up.
Keep in mind that this will only work if:
- you’re on a desktop computer
- you use Google Chrome as your default web browser

How to Manage Multiple Pinterest Accounts without Losing Your Mind
For those that manage multiple accounts that you don’t own (such as social media managers), Shawn Wright’s method may not work as well as Method #1 because this one requires sharing boards with your other Pinterest accounts. If they are similar this may work but I don’t imagine one business paying someone to manage their Pinterest account would be pleased sharing their content with their Social Media Manager’s other clients.
But for me, where I’d like to share content across boards since they may be relevant to my personal life or other sister businesses, it works like a charm.
Shawn also shares detailed screenshots and instructions so following along is easy. You will basically be sharing your Pinterest boards between accounts.
Keep in mind:
- You need a unique email for each account. To make it simple you can get multiple emails and then forward back to your main email address.
- Designate one Pinterest account as your master. For me it’s my personal account.
- Sign in to the account that you want to share boards. In other words, you want access to these boards on your master account.
