How To Install The Facebook Tracking Pixel


Before starting it is recommended for you to have purchased Pixelyoursite PRO as it helps streamline the process of installing not only the Facebook pixel, but other codes on specific and global pages.

There is a paid version which has all of the features unlocked and a limited free version.

Facebook Ads Menu

Click the Facebook Ads Menu and select “Pixels”.

Click “Add data source” and select “Facebook Pixel”.

If you do not have Pixelyoursite Pro installed, then follow the below section, if you do have it installed click here to skip ahead.

Click Setup Your Pixel

At the set up your pixel window, click “Manually install the pixel yourself”.

Find option number 2 and copy the code from the box.

If you followed the How To Set Up Your WordPress Website From Scratch lesson, then you should have the Divi theme installed. 

Divi-Integration-Tab

Under the Divi theme options, click the “Integrations” tab.

Paste the code into the Head section and click save.

If not you need to add it in the HEAD tag of your WordPress website. Some themes may allow you to add it to every page on your site through a template system but if you have trouble with this, you can download the Insert Headers and Footers plugin.

 

Install the plugin and search for it in the Plugins link of the WordPress dashboard to find and activate it. Then go the Insert Headers and Footers plugin and click on “Settings.” You’ll now be able to insert the Facebook Pixel code to the HEAD tag for all of your pages.

 

 

Congratulations you have installed the Facebook tracking pixel!

If you have Pixelyoursite PRO installed, copy your Pixel ID.

Navigate to the Facebook settings under the Pixelyoursite PRO tab in your WordPress Dashboard and paste your Pixel ID.

Before creating a custom conversion, decide which conversions users go through on your website.

  • Does a user fill out a form to contact you?
  • Do you utilize lead forms?

  • Does a user purchase from your website?

All of these events and more are now trackable.

  3. Select the category, this example is purchase.

Set the value, in this instance, we set the product value since it is the only product in our store.

Pixelyoursite PRO Custom Conversion Setup

Login to your WordPress Admin dashboard and select Pixelyoursite PRO in your menu.

Open the Facebook Pixel.

Pixelyoursite PRO has automatically installed tracking code on various points of your website. From blog posts, to product pages, add to cart, checkout, and purchase conversions. These are all already done for you as long as you have Woocommerce for the selling portion.

If you use a program like Gravity Forms or some other type of form submission then you will want to create a dynamic event within Pixelyoursite PRO.

To do this click the “Events” tab within Pixelyoursite PRO.

Click “Add Event”.

Enter your event name, if you are using a lead form with Gravity forms, you can name it lead.

It is best to have it trigger on a page load, such as a submission confirmation page. This also works great for contact form submissions as well.

If you have not already, create a thank you page for your form and redirect the user there after a successful submission.

Copy the thank you page URL and paste it into the “On URL visit” section of the Pixelyoursite PRO page.

Define the event as a lead in this case and click save.

Congratulations, you have set up your first custom conversion!

Create-Custom-Audience

Limit all purchases to the past 3 days. These will be visitors who have recently converted on your website.

Name your audience, for example 3 Day Purchases.

Congratulations, you have created your first custom audience on Facebook!

Don’t stop there, continue segmenting your users according to the events and time since the event occurred.

Next, go to create another audience, this time we will limit the purchases to 15 days and we will exclude those purchases in the past 3 days.

Custom-Audiences-Purchases-15-Days

After that, create another audience, this time 30 days, excluding those purchases in the past 15 days. Then you will create a 60 days purchase audience, excluding the past 30 days purchases, after that 90 days excluding the past 60, and finally 180 days excluding the past 90 days. You can further narrow or broaden the durations to your liking.

Do the same for each event on your website. You can also create 1 day lists as well.

How To Launch A Successful Facebook Advertising Campaign

How To Launch A Successful Facebook Advertising Campaign

What makes a successful Facebook advertising campaign?

Your Facebook advertising campaign should have a clear goal (which should be more sales).

Your landing page should be optimized to be relevant and cohesive with your Facebook advertising campaign.

You should have a clear bidding strategy and a way to track your results.

Your ad imagery, video, and copy should be captivating and engaging. It is best to write emotional ad copy as opposed to traditional ad copy.

Emotional ad copy uses mind penetrating language to spark emotions and provoke action. Anyone can offer a discount, how can you speak to your customers emotions and address their fears?

Your Facebook advertising campaign should utilize audience segmentation and marketing data to maximize conversions and lower the cost per sale.

Launching Your Successful Facebook Ads Campaign

We will be creating a total of 3 Facebook advertising campaigns.

A prospect Facebook advertising campaign, which will look for and attempt to convert new prospects.

A remarketing Facebook advertising campaign, which will attempt to convert individuals already in the funnel.

An existing customers Facebook advertising campaign, which will target existing customers with personalized messaging.

Creating A Prospect Facebook Advertising Campaign

Select the website conversion you want to achieve and track. Usually it would be leads, purchases, or a custom event. We are using purchases, since that is our goal.

Under custom audiences, select your 1% lookalike audience.

Now click the small blue text that says “Exclude” right below the custom audiences box.

We want to exclude any Purchase event, so add every purchase audience to the excluded section. If you collect leads as well, you will want to exclude them here. You can create a separate campaign to send personalized messages to your leads audiences.

Facebook-Ads-Campaign-3

After you have excluded all of the audiences, set the locations that you want to target.

Then set your age range and gender as well as language.

You can leave detailed targeting blank, as we are already targeting a highly qualified lookalike audience and segmenting users out based upon their actions in our sales funnel.

Facebook-Ads-Campaign-4
