The Marin Social Facebook Tracking Pixel

Introduction

Conversion Tracking allows you to measure the return on investment of your Facebook Ads and automatically optimize your ads for success. By placing a pixel on all of the key pages of your website, such as checkout pages, add to cart pages, or registration pages, you’ll be able to know how many people complete conversion actions and identify which ad drove the conversion.

Conversion Tracking also helps businesses leverage optimized cost per impression bidding (optimize for conversions, pay for impressions) to show ads to people who are most likely to convert at the most efficient bid possible. 

Step-by-Step

If you want to track the conversions that happen on your website, you must first create a pixel to place on your website. To create a new Facebook pixel in the Marin Social Platform, follow these steps:
 

1. First, go to Config dropdown menu in the top navigation panel. 

2. Select Tracking from the dropdown menu.

Note: The entire code must be placed on your website without modification in order to track conversions. (We recommend placing the conversion pixel immediately before the closing </head> tag in your HTML.). Keep in mind that you should only use one pixel for each page on your website where you want to track conversions. For example, don’t include a Registration pixel and a Key Page View pixel on the same confirmation page or else you may end up double-counting this page in your reporting.

Facebook Pixel for Marin TruePath

If you are configuring the Facebook Pixel for Marin TruePath, the following changes must be made before pixel implementation on site:

  • The FB Pixel Base Code needs to be deployed to the page(s) where the Purchase / Lead events takes place.

  • The Purchase / Lead event code must be updated to pass the order_id variable, populating it with a unique event identifier (the same value passed into the Marin event code), for example:
