Everflow's Facebook Conversions API Integration
Through a mix of convenience, powerful audience targeting, and massive global access, Facebook continues to be a top choice for performance marketers (spend rose to $2.26 billion in 2020). Good for them.
Don’t get us wrong, the Everflow team is stoked for anyone thriving via Facebook.
We just think that it's time to throw out your cookies (as Facebook campaign tracking options) and take your Facebook campaign success to another level.
With our v2.9.2 release we added a feature that easily connects your campaigns in Everflow to the Facebook Conversions API.
In just a few short steps you’ll be able to utilize this powerful conversion tracking tool to run stronger FB campaigns with better data, speed, and the ability to track offline events--while eliminating the use of third-party cookies!
Beyond performance benefits, now is the ideal time to transition with Google, Facebook, and Apple killing off cookies over the next couple of years. Let’s “milk” this a little more below:
Just As Delicious: Run More Lucrative Campaigns Via FB’s CAPI Cookie-Less Tracking Method
Known by the cool kids (and Facebook) as “CAPI”, Facebook’s Conversions API is an invaluable tool that allows advertisers to route Facebook users to their sites and apps, fire server-side conversion events (vs. standard cookie-based events) and then feed event info directly into the Facebook ad platform.
Utilizing FB’s CAPI for conversion tracking immediately improves your campaign performance:
- Offline Event Tracking: Such as QR code redemptions (a huge adoption surge with COVID-19)
- Stronger Tracking: Customized pixels determine what you want to track vs. relying on FB’s options
- Faster Loading Times: Cookie-less tracking means faster sites and apps
- Future-proofing: Preparing your campaigns to function without cookies (soon to be relics of the past)
- Better Data: You’ll still be able to collect some campaign data (even if a user opts out via cookie-based tracking)
Those are some tasty benefits!
