Select the email address associated with the brand’s Twitter account to enable you make your Pinterest profile since Pinterest’s integration with Facebook is not for fan pages but personal profiles only.
Ask fans of the brand you manage to pin photos of themselves with their favorite products you make and tag you after which you can repin them onto a VIP board thereby giving a shoot-out to the fans in addition to portraying to potential customers that current users of your products like them.
