So… In order to install your pixel code into Leadpages, you need to first head over to Leadpages and log into your account.
Once you’ve logged in, head over to the landing page or sales page that you’re looking to edit and open it up.
Once your landing or sales page has loaded, go to the side menu on the left side of the page and click on SETTINGS…
At this moment, you’ll be presented with 3 options:
To instal the Facebook Pixel code, you need to click on ANALYTICS.
This is the point where a lot of people make mistakes when pasting their Facebook Pixel Code…
In analytics, you’re given a few options that might be confusing…
- Head Section Tracking Code
- Immediately After The Opening <body> tag
- Immediately Before The Closing </body> tag
HEAD SECTION TRACKING CODE is the one you need in order for your pixel to fire correctly.
So grab the Pixel code that you copied from Facebook earlier and paste it into the HEAD SECTION TRACKING CODE area, and click SAVE. As shown below:
Once you’ve done this and click SAVE… Make sure to click publish on every page. Only when you do this will your edits become live online.
These steps will need to be repeated for every page that you want to be able to track. So if you have a multi-step funnel in place, it is important that your pixel code is on all of the pages in the funnel including any thank you pages you have created.
This means you can track every step of your sales funnel like— page views, leads, view content, add to cart, submit details, enter checkout details, and purchase, which is incredibly valuable information that can help you improve your funnels and lower your advertising costs…
And that’s it! As you can see, it’s pretty simple and straightforward, and you definitely don’t need to get a coder to help you do it, which is nice and saves you money!
If you’re unsure if you have done everything correctly, you can install the free Google Chrome extension called Pixel Helper. When you’ve installed the Facebook Pixel Helper, you can check every one of your pages to see if they show the pixel in the chrome extension. This will help you keep track of whether or not it’s working so you don’t go too far down the line and then realise you’ve made a mistake.
The Facebook Pixel is an incredibly useful and powerful tracking tool that can give you key performance information regarding your Facebook ads and how well they’re converting and of course how well your landing pages and sales pages are converting too.
It allows you to notice when pages and ads aren’t converting as well as you’d like so you can tweak little things to try and boost conversions.
As you’ve seen in this post, adding the Facebook Pixel code to your sales pages, and opt-in pages in Leadpages only takes a few steps, and it’s really not as difficult as you may have first believed.
Now, you can get your Facebook Pixel Code on to your landing pages and get back to marketing, generating opt-ins and making sales!
Ultimately, I hope this tutorial has helped you install your Facebook Pixel Tracking Code without the stress it normally causes, and maybe saved you from having to hire a coder.
From here, enjoy all your new tracking possibilities!
