How to do Facebook Dynamic Ads for WordPress posts

What are Facebook Dynamic Ads

When you do Dynamic Ads, Facebook uses its powerful AI to promote the content you upload into a Facebook Product Catalog.
Facebook’s algorithm decides what content is best to optimize your ads for the desired result.

This type of ad is used to promote products, but with a few tricks, you can adapt them to NORMAL WordPress posts.

This is what you need when you do Facebook Dynamic Ads:

  • A Facebook Product Catalog with the content you want to promote.
  • A speciffic set of Facebook Pixel Events.
  • Facebook Ads with “Catalog Sales” as their objective.

STEP 1

Upload your WordPress posts into a Product Catalog

Use the auto-updating feed created by the WordPress Feed for Dynamic Product Ads plugin.

  •  AddToCart on scroll, comment, click on any element, AdSense clicks, Vimeo, or YouTube embedded video play.
  •  Purchase on scroll, comment, click on any element, AdSense clicks, Vimeo, or YouTube embedded video play.

Dedicated Facebook Pixel

With PixelYourSite PRO, you can configure a dedicated Facebook Pixel just for the blog-related events. If you run an e-commerce website, this feature is very useful. You won’t have a mix between the “normal” e-commerce events fired on your product pages and the blog events fired for dynamic ads.
