These 3 proven methods will help you excel at Pinterest advertising:

1. Make your best organic Pins your paid Pins: The best Promoted Pins will be your top performing organic Pins. Use your analytics to determine which organic Pins deserve to be promoted.

2. Test variations on how you're getting people to convert: Two distinct funnel methods to test against each other are Pinterest ad --> opt-in page --> email subscribe OR Pinterest ad --> purchase.

3. Keep each campaign to 1 Promoted Pin: Focus your campaign on a single ad, which will likely drive the most impressions anyway.

A recent Harvard Business Review study looked at 188 undergraduate students' responses to a restaurant's Groupon offer.
