If you want to run conversion ads (and if you want to market smarter, you definitely want to run conversion ads), you need to install a Facebook pixel. If you're using third-party publishing or e-commerce platforms, you may not be able to edit the website's code to add the pixel. Check with your website/provider to see what their policy is.

Commonly Supported Platforms

If your website allows you to edit its code, paste the pixel between the <head> and </head> tags of the page you want to track. Check out this list of common platforms that Facebook supports for specific instructions:

Squarespace:

  1. In the Home Menu, click Settings > Advanced.
  2. Click Code Injection.
  3. In the header box, paste your Facebook pixel base code.
  4. Click Save.

You can also add the purchase standard event code to the Order confirmation page box or add specific events to certain pages by using the Page Header Code Injection function. To do this:

  1. Open the page while in the Pages panel.
  2. Hover over the content area and click Settings.
  3. In the Page Settings window, click Advanced in the top-right corner.

Eventbrite:

  1. Log in to your Eventbrite account.
  2. Go to the "Manage" page.
  3. “Tracking Pixels” (under Analyze) on the Manage page.

4. Copy and paste your Facebook pixel ID.

Click “Facebook pixel," choose whether you want the pixel to apply to this event only or all your Eventbrite events, and enter the Facebook pixel ID in the text field (under “Facebook pixel ID”).

Note: Check the 'All Events' option. You will want this installed for all of your future events.

3. Add Standard Events to your Facebook Pixel.

Click on “Add Standard Event," select which placement you want an event to fire on, and then select the Website Action you want to fire for that event.

You can add your Standard Event to two different placements (“Event Listing”, and “Event Register”) and you can use any website actions for your placements. However, we recommend not using the same website action for multiple placements. We also recommend the following website actions for each placement:

• Event Listing → View content
• Event Register → Initiate checkout

Note: Eventbrite automatically tracks Purchases, so there's no need to create this event.
