Only From Instapage: Complete Facebook Ads Conversion, Cost & Attribution Analytics

Only From Instapage: Complete Facebook Ads Conversion, Cost & Attribution Analytics

Last updated on by Brandon Weaver in Facebook Advertising, Instapage Updates

Over 20% of the total U.S. digital ad spend in 2018 is estimated to have transacted through Facebook, making it the second largest ad network in the market. This equates to $23 billion spent on paid ads on the platform throughout the year. Yet there hasn’t been an easy way for advertisers to measure the ROI of their Facebook ad campaigns through the post-click experience. Advertisers need a unified and accurate view of both their ads and their corresponding post-click landing pages performance to evaluate their ads’ effectiveness.

Instead of pulling metrics from disparate platforms and manually stitching them together for a cohesive view of overall performance, you need a solution that aggregates Facebook ad spend with conversion metrics and post-click landing page performance in a single dashboard. This gives you the information you need to optimize performance within your current ad budget.

Now you have it with the Facebook Ads Manager integration.

What is the Facebook Ads Manager integration?

The new integration lets you see detailed insights into advertising traffic and conversion costs across the entire marketing and sales funnel. Now you can connect Facebook Ads Manager to your Instapage account and view cost attribution metrics in your Analytics dashboard in real-time, including cost-per-visitor and cost-per-lead for Facebook ad campaigns. Plus, you can send ad campaign and cost-per-visitor information to your marketing automation and CRM tools to accurately attribute revenue and pipeline to PPC spend and campaign performance.

What you see in Instapage Analytics

After integrating your pages and driving traffic, Instapage analytics will show the following data. Most notably, cost per visitor and cost per lead:

Instapage already integrates with Google Ads, so with this new Facebook Ads integration, users can view page and visitor analytics for paid traffic across the two largest advertising platforms. Both integrations allow PPC marketers to track and analyze conversions and advertising spend across multiple traffic sources in a single analytics dashboard providing a cohesive view of ad-to-page performance.

*Instapage is the only post-click optimization platform to integrate with Facebook Ads Manager to track ad-to-page cost performance.

Availability

The Facebook Ads Manager integration is available on all plans and is integrated at the subaccount level. Once you connect a subaccount to a Facebook Ads Manager account, you can configure individual post-click landing pages to link to a specific ad and begin tracking cost performance data.

How to integrate your post-click landing pages with Facebook Ads Manager

(Note: Before connecting your Instapage account to Facebook Ads, you must verify the Facebook Ads account has Administrator or Advertiser permissions (not Analyst permissions). Also, only the Account Owner and team members with Manager permission can connect the Facebook Ads Manager integration. For more details on team member permissions, go here.)

To get started, go to your Integrations Dashboard and locate the Analytics section, then select Facebook Ads Manager. From there, click on Continue to Facebook to begin the authentication process:

Once the account is connected and verified in Facebook Ads, you will see a screen similar to this where you can disconnect the integration at any time:

Connecting a post-click landing page to Facebook Ads Manager

Now that your subaccount is connected to Facebook Ads, the next step is verifying the post-click landing page. Access the builder for the post-click landing page you want to connect, navigate to Settings, select Analytics and then Facebook Ads Manager:

This opens the integration modal that allows you to connect your Facebook Ads account (if you haven’t completed it already). If the account is already connected to your desired Instapage subaccount, you will see a message similar to this:

Facebook Ads Manager Instapage integration confirmed

Following that, complete the setup process by confirming the Facebook Ads campaign, ad set, and ads for the post-click landing page.

To identify incoming traffic to this post-click landing page from your ad, allowing Instapage Analytics to attribute that traffic with the correct campaign and cost, you must copy a snippet of Instapage tracking code and paste it into the “URL Parameters” field of the corresponding ad on your Facebook Ads Manager dashboard:
