"According to a recent study from Monetate, the average pricetag from a sale generated on Pinterest is $80.54, compared to around $70 for both Facebook ($71.26) and Twitter ($70.17).
While Pinterest users may spend more, they are also more difficult to convert. According to Monetate, the conversion rate for the average Pinterest user is .36%, compared to 1.08% for the average user on Facebook.

If you’re looking to add something new to your social media marketing, Pinterest is a great place to start."
