Managing over a hundred thousand dollars a month in ad spend for lead generation in the financial services industry, we will guide you through the process step by step.
Step 1: Accessing the TikTok Ads Manager
To begin, access the TikTok Ads Manager dashboard. Once there, navigate to "Assets" in the menu, and then select "Events".
Step 2: Setting Up Web Events
Within the "Events" section, choose "Web Events". Here, you will find a list of the pixels you have available. Click on "Setup Web Events" to proceed.
Step 3: Manually Install Pixel Code
In the setup window, give your pixel a name (e.g., "Test TikTok Pixel"). Next, choose "Manually Install Pixel Code" and then select "Event Builder".
Step 4: Installing the Pixel Code
Before proceeding further, you need to install the pixel code on your website. Copy the provided pixel code and paste it into the head section of your website's code.
Step 5: Defining the Events
The next step is to define the events you want to track. Each event will be triggered when a user visits a specific URL. For example, if the first step in your desired action is the "View Content" page on your website's home page, enter the URL ("/home") and choose the "View Content" event.
Step 6: Optimizing for Valuable Actions
If you have a form on your home page that redirects users to a specific URL upon submission, you can track the "Submit Form" event by entering that URL. This event represents the valuable action you want your users to take. By tracking and optimizing for this event, you can better understand the success of your ad campaigns.
Step 7: Completing the Setup
After defining all the relevant events, click "Next" and follow the prompts to complete the setup process. Once you have successfully set up your TikTok pixel to fire for specific events based on URL parameters, you will be ready to track and optimize your ad campaigns effectively.
