“PixelMe is one of those tools that’s easy and fun to test out, and quickly shows tangible value that makes you stick around. It really helps you track your marketing actions on every possible channel. More than that, PixelMe is a bridge that linked together all our marketing and communication teams - including PR, Content, Sales, Acquisition and Recruitment. I don’t know many tools that can be useful to so many different people in a company. It’s truly a collaboration tool.”

🧐 Toucan Toco’s teams needed to find more leads and customers in a few ways:
Toucan Toco used multiple PixelMe tools to grow their business:
🔗 1. Branded short links: Toucan Toco created a few custom domains social.toucantoco.com and solutions.toucantoco.com. This made their URLs easy to remember and share, and increased CTR. They use these branded short links for content leading to their website, blog, ads, external sites, events, and more.
To promote an event on how to choose the right graph for your data which was hosted on Eventbrite, they used the link social.toucantoco.com/5WUEF7Eq, which led to: https://www.eventbrite.fr/e/master-class-retail-and-data-visualization-how-to-choose-the-right-graph-for-your-data-registration-61417127281
🏷 2. UTM Builder: When driving people to their website from ads on Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn, they add UTM parameters to their URLs to analyze which channels their website traffic comes from.
For a LinkedIn ad, they used the following link with UTM tags for the source, medium and campaign: https://toucantoco.com/fr/?utm_source=linkedin&utm_medium=display&utm_campaign=abm-video-salesfocus
🎯 3. Audience Builder: For customer acquisition and tracking, Toucan Toco automatically builds retargeting audiences from anyone clicking on links they shared in a variety of ways.
📊 4. Smart Attribution: Toucan Toco brings all their efforts together by tracking conversions across campaigns and channels to see which ones are most effective. It’s been a great way for them to see what types of content helped them convert new visitors, and accurately track ROI across marketing channels. This includes: online ads (Facebook, Google, LinkedIn), retargeting efforts, social media posts, and non-paid campaigns.
Just knowing what made people convert is the number one feature for a marketing team to scale. So Toucan Toco’s team has since been able to prioritize and optimize their strategy across content creation, ads, and customer targeting.
🎯 Audience Builder: Build retargeting audiences by shortening branded links with ad retargeting pixels & add UTM parameters to track traffic sources.
📈 Smart Attribution: Measure ROI across paid & organic channels and see every touchpoint that led to a conversion.
