Have you dreamed about Pinterest transforming your business into a traffic-generating sales machine? Yet, despite your best attempts, does Pinterest remain a mystery to you?

But the half-life of a pin is a whopping 3.5 months!

And you don’t even need to have a single follower to get free traffic to your site.

    Good article @jdquey. The stat about "pins without faces received 23% more saves than those with faces" was interesting and surprising. Would love your thoughts about it.

      I think w/B2C, people want to visualize themselves in the ideal lifestyle. I remember reading about a lift in sales when using clothing models w/o heads vs with heads.

      Do note while I love CRO, I'm a theorist, not a practitioner. :)
