With emarketing you can setup Facebook & Instagram Retargeting campaigns without any expert knowledge about Facebook Ads or Facebook Business Manager. All you need is a Facebook Ads or Business Manager account which must be connected to emarketing. 

emarketing will automatically generate and upload the product catalogue required for your Facebook / Instagram Retargeting campaigns.

Facebook Retargeting Ads will be shown to users who visited your Webshop before. By using the look-a-like feature you can also target users who are similar to those users who have already visited your Webshop. This extends the range of your ads while still offering precise user targeting.

NOTE: In order to connect your Facebook ad / Business Manager account, you must have a Google Merchant Center with approved products. The Google Shopping data feed is used as basis for all other ad platforms you can access with emarketing. This does not mean that you have to advertise on Google. Please make sure to connect Google Ads and Merchant Center to emarketing (you can let emarketing create those accounts for you, if you don't use them yet). 

Requirements for running Facebook / Instagram campagins through your emarketing account

  • Active Facebook profile (with Facebook Ad / Business Manager account connected to that Facebook profile)

  • Facebook Pixel (Basis and Conversion Pixel) was created in Facebook Ad / Business Manager and properly installed to your Webshop. More information on creating / installing those pixels can be found here.

  • Google Merchant Center with approved products connected to emarketing
