Turning quiz events in Meta into custom conversions is an optional step that will allow you to:
Optimize your ads for quiz events
Add quiz events to Meta's list of Aggregated Events Measurement
Custom conversions also give Meta more context around what each custom event represents, improving Meta's ability to look for similar customers in lookalike audiences.
Why make a custom conversion?
Octane AI's Meta events are considered custom events within Meta. This makes them versatile, allowing you to track customer actions and target events with audiences.
However as custom events, the downside is Meta requires additional context before it knows what the custom event represents (since any action on the website can be turned into a custom event).
Turning a custom event, such as quiz completion, into a custom conversion enables:
Optimizing for the event in an ad
Allows tracking the event from anonymous users
Adds extra parameters to help Meta recognize the event
The ability to track the event even with anonymous users comes through Meta's Aggregated Events Measurement.
What is Aggregated Events Measurement?
Aggregated Events Measurement is a system that lets you select up to 8 conversion events in Meta to track even if users are anonymous.
This includes users that use VPNs, incognito browsers or have simply opted to not allow Meta's apps to track them. Directly submitted data like Octane AI's quiz data will always go through but tracking browser actions through cookies and pixels is much more difficult for this group of users.
Turning a custom event into a custom conversion
Before following these steps, make sure your Meta pixel has logged events from the quiz you want to track at least once.
In Meta Events Manager, open the left menu and click on Custom Conversions.
On the Custom Conversions page, click Create custom conversion.
Enter a name for your custom conversion.
Under Data Source, pick the Pixel that's connected to your quiz.
Under Conversion Event, select the custom event you want to target.
Under Choose a Standard Event for Optimization, choose the action closest to the one you want to track such as "Purchase".
Under Rules, add a small, unique part of your quiz URL (such as "pages/quiz").
