A pixel is a foundational tool in the realm of digital marketing, particularly for artists, creators, and anyone looking to expand their online reach. But what exactly is a pixel, and how does it play into your strategy with Symphony's tools, like Conversions, and the broader Facebook's Conversions API? Let's explore.

What Is a Pixel?

A pixel is a small piece of code that you can place on your website or landing page. This code collects data about visitors and their actions, helping you understand and analyze their behavior. Whether it's knowing who clicked on a link or purchased a product, a pixel provides insights that can be essential to refining your marketing strategy.
