For example, if you want to drive traffic to your brandís website, you can select a website clicks or conversions campaign... Youíll only be charged when a user clicks on a link to your website -- all other engagements, like a favorite or a retweet, are free. Youíll never pay for actions that arenít relevant to your goal."
