■ About Facebook/Instagram Conversion API implementation services

Given the accelerated move towards tightening cookie tracking (cookies) rules globally that are intended to protect personal information in recent years, it has become harder for businesses to deliver targeted ads. Against this backdrop, Facebook, Inc. has released a new feature called Conversion API (*1) that allows users to measure web data on their servers instead of using third party cookies. The feature is expected to enable users to complement and use alternative data required to optimize ad delivery, thereby achieving the optimum outcome.

However, despite it is generally considered urgent for businesses to implement the conversion API to address the stricter cookie rules and laws, many struggle to implement the API as planned due to technical and resource constrains for system implementation and maintenance.

Recognizing this, transcosmos has released the conversion API implementation services offered by the data marketing team – a team of experts who have acquired know-how in using data through working on ad delivery and website management. transcosmos will provide the system for exporting conversion data, which means that all clients need do is export required data items to the transcosmos system, no need to implement the conversion API on their side.

*1: Conversion API
The Conversion API allows advertisers to send web events such as clicks and conversions on Facebook and Instagram ads accumulated on their own servers directly to Facebook. Server events are linked to a pixel and are processed like browser pixel events. This means that server events are used in measurement, reporting, and optimization in in the same way as browser pixel events.
