Tracking events on your website is crucial for understanding user behavior and optimizing your marketing efforts. Facebook's Pixel offers a powerful solution to track these events and integrate them with your Symphony Conversions campaigns. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to get started:

For Common Sites Like Shopify or Squarespace

For Custom Sites with Custom Goals

  1. Follow Facebook's Developer Instructions: Detailed integration on custom sites requires careful following of Facebook's Developer guidelines to ensure the Pixel tracks your specific events.

  2. Customize Event Codes: Define and customize the events you want to track, such as "Add to Cart" or "Purchase."

  3. Insert the Code: Place the customized event code on the relevant pages of your website.

  4. Test the Events: Again, use Facebook's Pixel Helper Tool to verify that the events are being tracked correctly.
