Advertising on Meta expands your reach beyond existing customers and helps you find new audiences. Offering these audiences with richer digital experiences is the best way to get them engaged with your brand stories. But how to bring these experiences to life? What steps can you take to make them relevant?
First you need great data driven insights, then you need to ensure these insights are made actionable for a marketing team. Do this and you will be able to respond to customer behaviour immediately, riding new digital trend waves to business success. Building these actionable data-driven insights, as consumers interact with your business across different platforms, can be a challenge. A Customer Data Platform (CDP) offers a structured, secure,privacy-first approach to this challenge. It helps you manage identity in oneplace, so your marketing team can focus on building the rich digital experiences your customers expect from your business and maximize your advertising budget on Meta.
High quality signals improve your advertising results
Advertising on Meta platforms relies on sharing accurate information about what’s happening on your website. Useractions like viewed products, add to carts and purchases can be sent to Meta as‘signals’ and are vital information to make sure your ads are being shown to the right audiences. Improving the quality of these signals is a great way to directly improve your campaign performance. To this end Meta has introduced the Event Match Quality (EMQ) score. This score helps advertisers understand the quality of their signals. A high EMQ score means that your signals are accurately matched against Meta user profiles and can be used to improve campaign performance. Sending more information along with your signals will result in a higher EMQ.
Using Identity for better Event Match Quality
Businesses using a CDP can benefit from automated customer identification on their website. This means that your website traffic will become more insightful and turned into enriched ‘360-profiles’. These profiles store behavioural patterns along with identifiers that are unique to a customer, for example an email- or IP-address, phone number or other unique identifiers. When you send a signal about a user interaction to Meta, user identifiers become important. Without an identifier,the interaction can’t be matched with a user on Facebook or Instagram causingyour signals to become less valuable and harder for you to deliver richer experiences through your digital campaigns. Using only the Meta pixel,advertisers are not able to include identifiers for every interaction. This is why Meta introduced Conversions API as a resilient, privacy-first method to send identified signals directly over a server to server connection.
Integrating lead ads into your 360-degree profiles
Data sharing between your CDP and Meta works both ways too. Meta Pro includes an integration with Lead ads and will create a 360 customer profile each time a new lead is generated by your campaign. This profile will then be enriched with behavioural information when that lead visits your website. What pages did they visit? What products are they interested in? Each interaction also creates an opportunity to follow up with a relevant 1-to-1 message. Send them an email, direct message, or just put an automated alert into your sales team’s CRM to follow up a lead. Streamlining these automated processes will put your business on the front foot.
Our Meta Pro app includes resilient server side data transfer to via conversions API. As every interaction is matched to an identified profile in Squeezely CDP, Meta Pro will send all your signals to Conversions API with several identifiers attached. This creates higher quality signals that improve your EMQ score. As a result you will find a lower cost per action for your campaigns and we will help you meet Meta’s recommended EMQ score of 6.0 or higher.
Squeezely’s Meta Pro app aims to improve your EMQ score to meet Meta’s recommended standards.
