Facebook Pixel Tracking: How to use the Facebook Pixel on Music Glue



Get started with the Facebook pixel

If you’re using Facebook ads for your campaign, there’s one key tool you should start using right away to make the most of your social advertising budget: the Facebook pixel.

What is the Facebook Pixel?

The Facebook Pixel is a snippet of code that is placed on pages of your Music Glue profile. It helps you track ad conversions, improve audience targeting, and maximise your return on advertising. Using and understanding the Facebook pixel can be a bit challenging. You need to have some knowledge of how Facebook and Facebook Ads Manager work. You also of course need to have a Facebook account in order to create your pixel within Facebook. We've gathered some information that should help you get started...

What are the benefits of using Facebook Pixel tracking?

1. Build custom audiences and re-market: The Facebook pixels allow you to create audiences based on the actions your profile visitors took while simultaneously being logged into Facebook. You can create a variety of custom audiences, for example:

  • People who visited any page of your Music Glue profile
  • People who visited a specific page of the profile (order confirmation page, blog page...)
  • People who have visited your profile in the past 180 days but have not been back in 30 days
  • People who have visited a specific page on your profile but not another specific page

This way you can advertise to very targeted groups of people and create more relevant adverts. More info

2. Track conversions on your profile: A conversion is the completion of an activity on your profile by a visitor after viewing your Facebook ads. This can help you calculate your return on investment, knowing exactly what amount you've sold, and what you've spent on advertising. More info

3. Create lookalike audience: A Lookalike Audience is a way to reach new fans similar to your best existing fans. More info
