Hello. I have created a few pin templates of my online christian teespring store. I have about 573 views the last 3 weeks of impressions of my pins, but the viewers are not clicking on my store website attachted to my business profile. What could be the issue of pins not driving the traffic to my website?

Hello! I am relatively new to Pinterest been on for about 4 weeks. I have a Christian Apparel line thru Teespring. On my business page, I created a few pins thru my canva account and uploaded some of my templates with my models wearing my clothing. So far so good I have gotten 963 total views of my Pins, but no traffic to my clothing website.  My site of course is integrated on my business page, but it is not getting any clicks. What could be the issue? Any help to help guide me to figure it out would be great.

Hey all this is really helpful thread. I am just starting out with Pinterest game. I have heard about it a lot from a colleague. She runs an etsy shop and drives her sales from here. tbh, I really don't know what the audience here is like and just testing to see how it works. I am seeing a lot of feminine fellows, so I should be making content to align with that I suppose. P.S my site is all about go karting. If anyone here is interested kin karting or just want to follow for updated news check gokartdude.com. Will keep posted in if I see traffic on my site. Cheers!

When I write a new blog post (all of my blog posts have photos in them), I create pins from that post. I usually put all or almost all of the photos on pinterest, and since my blog is in the specific niche of men's style, most of my photos go to the same place.

Creating pins in bulk like this is actually not very convenient. There is supposedly an option to do it in the pinterest settings, but that option doesn't seem to work, at least not for my (ghost-based) blog.

Pinterest and my analytics tool both track clicks from pinterest to my blog, but they give me different numbers. And I don't really care. My blog isn't a business, I'm just sharing what I think is cool.
