|This article is for LiveIntent's self-service users who need to generate LiveConnect base and event tags. If you are not a self-service user of the LiveIntent platform, please reach out to your account managers for your LiveConnect tags.
Generating a LiveConnect Tag is quick and easy. When doing so, you can also generate event tags (including conversion tags). Here is how to do each:
Step 1: Navigate to the "Conversion Tracker" Section
Log in to your account, go the Campaign Manager section at the top of the navigation bar, and then select the "Conversion Tracker" tab on the lefthand side of the screen. From here, select "Create Conversion Tracker."
Step 2: Create Your Event Tag
Advertiser: Select your account
Type: Event or URL
Use "Event" when tracking or optimizing to an event. You can choose from the following event types: Add To Cart, App Install, Email Sign Up, Form Fill, Lead, Product Purchase, Subscription, or Custom.
Use "URL" when you want to track users that reach a specific page. When you select the URL option, a "Visited Page" field with three options will appear. The options are: Contains, Does Not Contain, and Equals. You can combine these options when tracking or optimizing to a URL.
Tracker Name: What do you want to name your conversion tracker?
Post Click Attribution Window: The default is 30 days, but you can change it to match your attribution window.
Post View Attribution Window: The default is 7 days, but you can change it to match your attribution window.
Data Source: There are two options: Track Web Events and Track In-App Events. If you are not implementing a LiveConnect Tag in your app, you should deselect the "Track In-App Events" option.
Sharing: You can share the same conversion tracker amongst multiple advertisers. If this does not apply to you, select "Do not share this pixel."
Audience Name: Name the audience associated with your conversion tracker or event.
Member Lifetime: Specify the number of days that people will stay in your audience.
Step 3: Your LiveConnect Tag and Event tags
After you press "Create," you will find your LiveConnect Base Tag at the top of the page.
Under the section “Set Up Event Tags”, you can set up your event tags. You can select different tags.
By clicking the black arrow next to a tag, on the right hand side you’ll see the code for the conversion event. Here you can specify which parameters you would like to be included. Within this code, the event and name are required. The other parameters such as user email needs to be replaced with your own data layer variables. We encourage you to place these parameters but if you are not able to, you can remove them otherwise the tag won’t fire properly.
You can select or deselect the categories on the side by checking off the blue boxes.
Also, you are only able to download the tags and instructions for conversion trackers that you've actually created. There are only id’s in this column for the ones that have been created.
Finally, you'll want to place all of your tags on your website and confirm with your account team that everything looks good.
