The Power of Facebook Pixel

The Facebook pixel is a code that can be deployed on all the pages of your website. Instead of having separate codes for conversion & Analytics, The Facebook pixel is one code that will serve all-purpose. With Facebook pixel, you can measure the effectiveness of your Advertising & the actions taken by the user on your website. Whenever a user takes an action on the Website, The pixel is triggered. The custom audience can only be created with the help of Facebook pixel. A lookalike audience campaign will perform better if your Facebook pixel is served more than a thousand times.

The Workflow of Facebook Pixel – When someone visits your website and takes an action (for example, buying something), the Facebook pixel is triggered and reports this action. This way, you’ll know when a customer took an action after seeing your Facebook ad. You’ll also be able to reach this customer again by using a Custom Audience. When more and more conversions happen on your website, Facebook gets better at delivering your ads to people who are more likely to take certain actions. This is called conversion optimization.

Facebook Ai & Machine learning understands the campaign very well & shows the Ad for more relevant audience who are making a purchase for your product. This happens when a campaign has been running for a long time. In order to determine the performance of each campaign, The campaign has to pass the learning period. The longer you run the campaign the better it performs. For example, if the Age group between 25 to 35 are making the most purchase for your campaign, Facebook will understand this and starts to show the Ad more for people aged between 25 to 35. This is done through Machine learning. You can determine the no of times the ad is shown for each person through frequency Capping.
