[intro] Before you begin this Guide, you need to have created a Facebook Page and added a shop tab to it. When you have finished this Guide, you will have successfully configured the Facebook Pixel feature on your EKM online shop.[/intro]

Similar to the Google Tools feature, Facebook Pixel allows you to embed Facebook Pixel code onto your EKM online shop in order to monitor your visitor data and enable you to ascertain the success of your Facebook Advertising campaigns. It can help by:

  • Ensuring that your Facebook Ads are shown to people within your target demographic;
  • Driving more sales to your EKM online shop;
  • Accurately report the results of your Facebook Ads, allowing you to really drill down and target the right people with your advertising campaigns. 

When it's been set up, the Facebook Pixel will trigger when someone makes an action on your EKM online shop, such as adding items to the cart or making purchases. The Pixel records these as 'events' which you can then view within your Facebook Business Manager account. You'll be able to see who interacted the most with your content and be able to tailor future promotions and advertising to suit your target demographic perfectly.
