Pin 1 did all of the spending for this campaign. Pin 2, which was an infographic, did not do well at all. Changes to the pin description did not help. Although users clicked on pin 1, they did not click through to the website, which only reported 1 click from Pinterest in this timeframe. Google Analytics from the user’s website confirms that lack of click-throughs (Figure 3).
