How to Manage and Install Conversion Tracking for Programmatic, Native and Beyond


With all the effort you put into building your creatives and running your ad campaigns, you want to be sure you can accurately track and measure the performance of your campaigns, and ensure you’re getting the ROI you expect from your ad dollars.

This is why conversion tracking is one of the most important aspects of your programmatic campaign, whether that’s to track sales, leads, or mobile installs. But if you’re just starting your marketing efforts, where do you start? We’ve got the 101 on conversion tracking here.

What does conversion tracking do?

Conversion tracking allows you to track a customer who has clicked or interacted with your ad in some way. Sophisticated conversion tracking can help you trace the path a customer has taken from ad click, to the pages they visit on your site, to  finally the end-goal you want that user to take—-whether that’s buying a product, signing up for a newsletter, installing an app, or even calling your business. 

It gives you a detailed view into the common behaviors on your website or app, so you can also potentially make optimizations—either to your ad campaigns and creatives or to your site itself, to better improve the performance metrics you want to see.

How do I create a conversion tracking pixel?

In order to track custom conversions, you’ll need to install a tag on your site—but tools like the Logiq Digital Marketing platform make it straightforward and easy for businesses of any size. 

When you log into the platform, you’ll see the Conversions tab under the “Tag” section. Here you can customize the conversion you want to track so you can easily then report on it later in the “Insights and Analytics” section.

To add a custom conversion tracker to a tag, you will need to enter the following information:

Within the platform, you can even add multiple conversion events to a single tag, like shown here:

After configuring your conversion parameters and saving, the tag you need for your site will be automatically generated in the “Tags” section. If you use Google Tag manager on your site, you can also click  that button so it’s specially formatted and ready to be pasted there.

Once you save everything, you can place this tag on your site (yourself or via a tag manager) or on the pages to be tracked so that the platform can accurately collect and report data

How to Run a Real-Time Report on Conversions

Once the tag has been in place and you’ve been running campaigns, it’s easy to run real-time reports tracking your performance. Simply enter the “Insights & Analytics” section and add a graph. Then you can select “Matched Conversion” or “Matched Conversion Value,” and choose any filters you want to include (like Country, Advertiser, or Device), and select the date range you want to report on. Then you can save and see exactly how well your campaign has performed, and make any adjustments as needed.
