With over 200 million monthly users, Pinterest has a wide audience for your business to reach. One out of 2 people have made a purchase after seeing a promoted pin.
Promoted pins are paid advertisements through Pinterest. The user can target certain demographics, locations, and devices. With promoted pins, the company pays on a cost-per-click (CPC) basis. This means that your business only pays when someone clicks the ad and redirects to your company’s website. There is also a way to track your promoted pins, and view how many impressions, repins, clicks, click through rate, and total amount spent.
Pinterest’s promoted pins will help draw attention to a certain pin, while gaining exposure. They are most ideal for small business start ups, and are a great way to drive traffic to your website.
