  • Use Case 8: Apply multiple Parameter definitions to different Facebook campaigns a single Facebook Ad Account + Cost data import (optional)

    If you have multiple campaign types or clients within a single ad account and you would like to apply different UTM Parameter definitions we need to create one initiative for each campaign grouping.

    Let’s take the instance of different campaign types in a single ad account. For the sake of this tutorial, I will call them Campaign Type A and Campaign Type B.

    The naming convention is not essential as long as you can group campaigns by an identifier within the campaign name be that a client name, ID or type.

    2. Give the Initiative a name

     

     

    3. Connect your Facebook Account

    8. In URL Parameters section click on the Select a Profile drop-down then select Create a New Profile

     

     

    9. Create a new profile defining your URL Parameters specific to Campaign A [Learn how to create a profile here]

    Repeat the same steps 1 – 13 for ‘Campaign Type B.’

    You can create an unlimited number of initiatives for all EAT accounts, so you are not limited in flexibility and customization across one or multiple Facebook Ad accounts.

  • Use Case 9: Apply URL Parameter definitions for All paused historical campaigns in a single Facebook Ad Account  + Cost data import (optional)

    If you are working with a third party reporting platform that maps performance data by referencing live URL Parameter tags within Facebook Ads, you might want to tag all historical data for proper mapping consistently.

    To do this, we will create an initiative that tags all past campaigns.

     

    1. Click on Create Initiative in your dashboard

     

     

    2. Give the Initiative a name

     

     

    3. Connect your Facebook Account

    Note: You can assign one or multiple Facebook Ad Accounts to each Initiative.

     

     

    4. Turn off Import Data

     

     

    5. Click Dive in to configure your parameter settings

     

     

    6. Select Tag campaigns that meet criteria

     

     

    7. In the drop-down select Campaigns created before and choose a date that includes all campaigns created up to the desired date

     

     

    8. Turn off Continuous Tagging

    Note: This will only tag ads with UTM Parameters in selected campaigns once. If you create any new ads within the campaigns chosen, EAT will ignore them.

     

     

    9. Turn off Skip Completed Campaigns since we are tagging historical campaigns

     

     

    10. Select a predefined profile or create a new one [Learn how to create a profile here]

     

     

    11. Click Activate, and you will receive an email once your ads are tagged.
