Wednesday, January 31st, 2018
Facebook Pixel is an important analytics tool that helps users better understand how to engage with customers and drive meaningful action. Simply put, the Pixel is a piece of code applied to your website. When the Pixel is installed, you can better measure the effectiveness of your Facebook ads and allocate marketing spend accordingly.
Facebook Pixel is a great tool for re-marketing
Have a lot of web visitors that don’t convert to sales? Facebook Pixel will enable you to track this, learn more about your visitors, and then target those visitors with new ads and offers. This is referred to as re-marketing or re-targeting. You can improve your social media marketing by creating your own custom audience from website traffic and enhancing ad delivery to your best targets. Pixel provides the data you need to optimize your ads and focus on qualified leads. By monitoring how people interact with your website once they view your ad, you can get insight as to which type of ads get your desired results. You will soon be developing more effective ads. Set up Facebook Pixel today for a more focused Facebook advertising effort.

Add a Facebook Pixel to your website.
Once the Pixel is created, you will have to select an option for installation instructions. You can install the code yourself, have the instructions emailed to your web developer, or select that you use an integration or tag manager. Choose an installation option and follow the directions.
Track important actions
Once Pixel is active, you can track certain actions on your site. This can include people visiting certain pages, such as a particular service or a blog. People who place items in a shopping cart, but never complete the purchase. Even people who are frequent site visitors, but never take any action. You can easily set up events on your website while completing the installation process. Events can include purchases, leads, searches and content views among other things. You can access your Pixel analytics from the Pixel page in Ads Manager.
