Key Tip: 

Although Pinterest is a great option to increase organic engagement and traffic to your website, the platform also offers the ability to target a specific audience with Promoted Pins. Promoted Pins are offered to every business, with the focus of increasing your pins visibility to your preferred target audience. This is achieved by placing pins in front of users based on their interest and activity, as well as including key words to your Promoted Pins to increase search capabilities.

There are 3 goals and objectives that you can focus your campaign on:

  1. Engagement: This objective increases the amount of engagement your pins receive, such as views, clicks, and repins. In this campaign you pay per action.
  2. Traffic: This objective focuses on generating traffic to your website, which is paid for per site click.
  3.  Awareness: The awareness objective is currently only offered to Fortune 500 companies, and exposes your brand to a relevant audience.
