“What is a Facebook Pixel?!”
Before we get started with this episode, I feel I need to answer this question!
A Facebook Ad Pixel is that pesky piece of HTML code that every advertiser should be using for their business (I say “should”, because I know not everyone does!).
It is specific to YOUR ad account, and will be the go-between from your website and Ads Manager so you can track the actions visitors take on your website, as well as the progress and results of your ads.
Now, you may be running for the hills at the sound of tech-talk, but keep listening. Because on this episode, I am going to give you 6 simple steps to follow so you can easily find and set up your pixel perfectly – even if you're a complete technophobe!
(You can also follow along by downloading my free Step by Step Guide to Using the Facebook Ad Pixel for Better Campaign Results! Get the guide by clicking here).
Step 1: Where you find your Facebook Pixel.
Whether you are an Ads Manager pro, A Business Manager genius or someone who is just starting out, snagging your Facebook Pixel really is a breeze!
Step 2: How to copy the code.
Once you've located your pixel, it's a simple case of clicking a button to copy the entire code.
Step 3: Learn where to put it.
I will walk you through the exact places (yes, more than one location!) to put the Facebook Pixel on your website to track activity.
Step 4: How to make sure you did it right.
This isn’t just a “one-and-done” job! Just like in school, there are ways to double-check your work to get an A+!
Step 5: Find out about “re-targeting”.
You know how when you are browsing on Amazon and you put something in your cart, but then all of a sudden it shows up your Facebook newsfeed, reminding you to purchase it? That is called “re-targeting”!
Spooky, yet effective and necessary for a successful Facebook Ad!
Step 6: How to track conversions.
Conversions are what we want, so this is a crucial step you really want to stick around to hear about!
Now you're all set!
