Funnel Overview

Cost → Impressions → Clicks

In this first section, we provide the top of the funnel for your Facebook Ads for the given time period. This data is pulled directly from Facebook Ads through our integrations.

Visitors → Contacts → Companies

In the next section, we give an overview of the traffic from Facebook Ads which is based on the Tracking script we have on your websites.

Influenced Leads → Leads → Influenced Value → Value

In the third section, we provide Influenced Leads and Influenced Value. Influenced Leads represent the total number of leads that had recorded interaction with your marketing efforts and Influenced Value represents the total revenue that came from these Leads. Important to mention that these two metrics are not controlled by your selected attribution model.

Remaining metrics: Leads and Value are attributable metrics, they display Facebook Ads performance data based on the filters selected.

To calculate these numbers, we first look at the pool of contacts/companies that visited a Facebook Ads based on the dates/filters. Once we have that group, we see what deals were closed after their visit, up to today's date. More importantly, we are only looking at deals where we have a recorded history of sessions; Attributable Deals. This pool of attributable deals will make up the basis for this section. For each of these deals and all their sessions, we will run the Attribution Model you have selected so each session is given a deal and revenue amount.

For both Attributable Deal and Value (revenue), we then provide the sum of these amounts for each session that contains a Facebook Ad, depending on which Attribution Model you have selected.

Note: When using First Touch/Last Touch you will get a round Deal number, as a deal is either First Touch Paid or Not. While with Linear, W-Shaped or U-Shaped you will get a fraction of a deal as most Paid Touchpoints will make up a fraction of the sessions on a deal.

Cpm → Ctr → Cpa → ROAS

On the fourth row, we provide percentages for some common KPIs, most important Return on Ad Spend.

Campaign Performance

In this table, we list all the Campaigns in Facebook Ads that were running during the time frame specified. We provide all the metrics for each campaign making it easier for you to compare and find out which performed and which ones did not perform.

Note: If you click on the Title Campaign Performance in the top left corner of the Table, it will open a larger view, which is better for navigation.

Campaign Performance over time

We provide a graph showing the development of your Facebook Ad Campaigns and their Return on Ad Spend over the period of time specified in your Filters. Use the Aggregate filter to breakdown the X-Axis as you wish e.g. (day, week, month).

This graph makes it easy to see which Campaign is performing best, but also it shows how long it generally takes for a campaign to win the deals. To do that, select specific Campaign and set Aggregation Filter by days. This will allow you to get detailed analysis on unique campaigns.

Note: time frame is key so you can give enough time to your campaigns to create value.
