So let’s start with what is a Facebook pixel and how is this little guy going to drive your business forward. In reality, this single feature could become a major piece of your largest source of traffic through your digital marketing strategy. The 4 major functions it serves:
- Conversion Tracking: This will allow you to easily track the success of your Facebook marketing campaign and seeing what was driven as a direct result.
- Optimization: The pixel will allow you to automatically bid on conversion once set up.
- Remarketing: Easily remarket to those who visit your site or take specific rule based actions
- Lookalike Creation: Through the insight gleaned with your campaigns utilizing the Facebook pixel, you will be able to remarket towards audiences deemed to be most responsive through previous campaigns using the pixel.
