Use Facebook Pixel add-on to track the actions people take on your website across devices and run Facebook advertising campaigns more effectively.
Gradually Facebook Ads have become a popular ad platform after Google AdWords. Tracking of conversion is the major part of campaign success. Facebook has its own tracking pixels functionality to track conversion data, but if you don’t have easy access to a developer, tracking code implementation will not be an easy thing.
The Facebook Pixel can be used for three main functions:
— Building custom audiences from your website for remarketing.
— Optimizing ads for conversions.
— Tracking conversions and attributing them back to your ads.
The Facebook Pixel add-on supports not only Personal but also Business Manager account. The Business Account allows to join Ad Account, Pixel and Product Catalogs to track product feeds and ad campaigns.
Business accounts are useful if you manage Facebook advertising for clients or advertise internationally and need accounts in different currencies, to mention two common examples.
