Benefits of using Pixel
Facebook Pixel helps track the actions people take in your funnel. In essence, it helps to better understand the impact of ads by knowing what people do after they see them, then you can reach people who are more likely to take meaningful actions, such as purchasing your products or services.
Setting up a pixel in bucket.io can help to create audiences using the information people have provided even if they did not finish the funnel, and then this information could be used at a later time to retarget them.
Facebook Pixel works in six steps
In bucket.io, you only add the pixel code and set up some events, tags, and values - but all of the data is sent to Facebook Business Manager, and that is where all the actions happen.
- [In bucket.io] Install the pixel - Everything starts by adding a snippet of tracking code to your Funnel
- [In Facebook Business Manager] Collect insights - You’ll begin receiving insights about funnel visitors, such as the number of questions they answer, if they dropped off, or if they finished the funnel
- [In Facebook Business Manager] Review behaviors - See how people act on your funnel page - whether they just viewed the question, or click through it
- [In Facebook Business Manager] Build audiences - Use the data collected from pixel events to create Facebook Custom Audiences, look-a-like audiences, and ads tailored to those specific people
- [In Facebook Business Manager] Optimize bidding - Reach people likely to take actions, for instance - buying a product/service to spend your budget efficiently
- [In Facebook Business Manager] Analyze events - Assess conversion events to decide the best Facebook ads strategy for your business
