@lukaspleva No problem, Lukas. They are fantastic questions!
Just out of curiosity, what sort of photos do you pin/post?
This is something I struggled with at first – how to stand out – but I found a very simple answer: Using text.
All I do is create an image in Photoshop that has the title of the post written in a fancy way. So, for example, if the post was called: 5 Ways to Save Money on Shopping, I would create an image with that text on it using a fancy (but readable) font on a colourful background.
I found that if the text was compelling enough people would click through and share it.
How does the number of pages visited / amount of time on website from Pinterest traffic compare relatively
Pinterest accounts for over 25% of overall traffic (I didn’t add in mobile Pinterest traffic last time) for visits.
Number of pages/visit is 12% higher than the site average, and duration on site is double that of the site average. (Keeping in mind this blog is still growing).
How are you monitoring conversions?
As I mentioned before I am not too concerned with conversions at this stage as the blog is still growing and we are looking more at brand awareness as the main goal.
Having said that, I am working with Google Analytics to create campaign URLs to track any traffic. I am not confident that Pinterest will bring in direct conversions but I am confident that the blog will, so traffic to the blog is important.
I hope that answers your questions, Lukas!
