The Facebook Pixel: What It Is

You have most likely heard about a Tracking Pixel; This is a crucial tool you should be using to get the most out of your social ad budget.

Today I would like to share what is a Facebook pixel, the many benefits of using one and why you should be already using one.


What is the Facebook pixel?

So what the heck is a Facebook pixel?, a Facebook pixel is a code that you place on your site. In its simplest form, It helps you track conversions from Facebook ads and optimise the ads based on data; You can build targeted audiences for future ads and re-market to qualified prospects who have already taken action on your website.

So how dose It works, it works by placing cookies on the page to track users as they interact with your site and your Facebook ads.


What are the benefits of using a Facebook pixel

There are the different ways you can use the data you have collected from Facebook pixel to refine your Facebook advertising.

Track conversions

One the most basic things you can do with the Facebook pixel is monitor how people converted to your website after viewing your Facebook ad.

This means you can even track customers across all of their devices.

For example, you can see if people see your ads on mobile but switch to a desktop before making a purchase. This information can help you improve your ad strategy and better calculate your ROI (return on investment).

Remarket

The Pixel code allows you to track data and use it to show targeted ads to people who have already visited your website; this is otherwise known as “Remarketing”. You can get really specific here.

For example, You can show people an ad for the exact product that they abandoned in a shopping cart on your website.

This great feature is why you should create a Facebook pixel right now, even if you’re not using Facebook ads yet. This is, so you have retargeting capabilities from your very first Facebook ad and historical data from now when you do start.

Create lookalike audiences

In Facebook you can use its targeting data to help you build a thing they call a “Lookalike Audience” This is a Segment of people who have similar likes, interests, and demographics to the people who are already interacting with your site, helping you expand your potential customer base.

Run effective ads

Using a Facebook pixel can make your ads a lot more useful it does this by improving the quality of the ads you are running, and by improving the way people are being targeted controlling who see them.

In addition to that, you can use Facebook pixel data to ensure your ads are seen by the people who are the most likely to take your desired action.

If you have any questions about your Facebook pixel, please feel free to comment, and we will answer any questions.

3 Predicted Digital Marketing Trends for 2018

MPH Creatives 3 Predicted Digital Marketing Trends In 2018

The world we live in is always changing and becoming more digital with rapid advancements in technology.

With this new-digitalised lifestyle comes new businesses and consumers interacting with new websites and apps. This plus new technology will, in turn, create new marketing strategies.

In this post I would like to share with you three different trends I predicted in 2018.


1. Measurement of omnichannel

omni_channel_magento

“Omnichannel” is a term you have probably heard a lot from numerous people this year. 75% of mobile searchers are revisiting a store within the first 24 hours; It was no real surprise that they released of Project Beacon.

Google has said In 2018 they will share more information on how they track store visits, so businesses can better understand how this attribution works.


2. Understanding & Not Underestimating The Power Of Micro Moments

With people on average checking their phones 100+ times a day, micro-moments are so very crucial.

Decisions are now being made in micro-moments

Micro-moments are small moments in your day for example when you check emails, social media or push notifications. Monitoring these touch points and their impact on a macro-conversion will be a priority for all digital marketers and will defiantly be in there 2018 strategies.


3. Re-engineer the normal for a more inclusive message

In 2017 we have seen big brand campaigns with a real focus on a few political topics specifically looking at gender equality, prejudices, and sexuality.

Two great examples of this are Heineken Worlds Apart campaign and McCain We Are Family campaign.

Brands who are ready will take the hint from the more prominent brands and will be more aware targeting everyone and how to use blurring the gender divide and taboo around sexuality to make there campaigns more relatable to there targets.


We’re excited to see what new trends, tools and technology that will be released in the digital marketing industry, As always we can’t predict the future exactly or know that this will defiantly happen in 2018.

But this is our best guess.

So this time next year, we will see how many predictions we were right.

If we have left something out please if you have any predictions of what new trends or new technology that will be used in 2018 leave us a comment.

What Should I Post? – 10 Tweets You Can Post Every Day.

10 Tweets You Can Post Every Day.

One of the oldest social platforms out there is Twitter. I’ve been on Twitter since early 2010.

Twitter allows users to have a direct conversation style. This style can mean you can easily join in on existing conversations that are happening on the platform. But some people tend not to get it and are more likely to be on Facebook.

In the last couple of years, a lot of the same people have been saying that Twitter isn’t doing well, and Twitter is dead Well; Twitter isn’t dead. In fact, Twitter is still a great platform to have a conversation, and they are continuing to make the platform better with each update.

A lot of people think Twitter is about followers, but it’s not it’s about meeting people, talking to people and building relationships. If you want to these things, you have to take an active role on the platform.

Not just send out a tweet once in a blue moon.

So Let me show you what you can do to help get you started on Twitter.

10 Ideas of what to tweet about every day:

1.  Send out a greeting

Easy Just say hello. Greet the community. Give a shout out to someone your meeting that day or an inside look into what you are doing this morning.

2.  Send @replies

Reply to the people who are talking to you. Don’t ignore them.

3.  Retweet with a comment

You can always retweet (AKA Share) which you should, but if you add a comment to the retweet, it can make it even better.

4.  Reply to a conversation that’s already happening

It could be someone who put a Tweet out in the world, and you think you can add your option too. By joining in, you are meeting new people and will, in turn, increase your following.

5.  Ask a question in a @reply to someone who knows more.

You might not want to do this to a celebrity because they’re probably will not respond, but this is an excellent strategy to get to know a someone or even a thought leader. If you have read their content, ask a question about it. This approach is a great way to show that you’re paying attention and not a spammer.

6.  Participate in a trending topic or hashtag

This tip is an excellent way to get in front of an audience or gain a new one. But this will only work if you are offering something of valuable and relevant to say. Don’t just be a troll (being a D**k); you should try to contribute.

7.  Reply to someone else’s question

This is a neat little trick that I use to find questions, go to the search bar and put a “?” and click on the latest. If there is a question being asked to someone I already follow, I can answer it, if I can.

8.  Share a link to something you made

I often share links to content. If you follow me on Twitter, will you probably want to know when I’ve posted a bit of content. Let people know that I’ve created something new.

9.  Share an inspiring quote

Everyone loves quotes!

10.  Celebrate someone else (AKA shout out post).

Create a Tweet and announce that you are celebrating someone else’s accomplishment. It’s a surprise for that person when they see that you’ve given them a shout out.


Bonus TIP

Checking out for the day

I like to let Twitter know that I’m signing off in the evening. But, no fear, they know I’ll be back saying “Hello” in the morning.


Those are the 10 Tweets you should be sending out most days. By Just sending out a few Tweets a day, you will start to build your Twitter audience as you go and create the content you want to publish.
