How to Use Click Tracking to Grow Your Business on Pinterest

Pinterest can be a real game-changer for your business or brand. The Pinterest demographic has a higher purchasing power than most other social channels, with 83% of weekly Pinners making a purchase based on content they saw on the platform.

Now, with Pinterest Click Tracking, you can plan your strategy based on accurate data.

Check your Detailed Pin Performance in Later to see what type of content is driving the most traffic to your site — and working to increase your brand’s visibility!

If you’ve got an online store, you can use Pinterest Click Tracking to scope out market interest in new products you’re launching. Discover which products are generating the most clicks and driving potential new customers over to your website.

Pinterest Click Tracking is the best way to gain a broader view of what content is performing well (and what isn’t!) for your business or brand — so you can adjust your strategy and drive real results!


How to Schedule a Pin with Click Tracking

Step #1: Choose your media.

In the Later web app, select content from your Media Library, and drag and drop the media to the calendar to get scheduling.

TIP: You can also schedule to multiple social platforms all at once within the Later app.GIF of person using Later tools to drag and drop Pinterest image of dog into their content calendar
