Retargeting - PDF download

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all,

 

I am sending out an email campaign to a list of prospects, in the email, there is a link to an Info PDF that they can click to. The Info PDF file is hosted via Wordpress.

What I want to happen is that when the prospect clicks the link to the Info PDF, that the Google Tracking Pixel will be invoked. As I wish to run Ad Retargeting to everyone that views the Info PDF. 

 

Is there a way to achieve this? Can the Google Tracking Pixel be enabled for the location of the Info PDF file? Would appreciate any insights anyone has.

Hi Aslam

Thanks for the article, I have read the document. However the doc refers to
sending events to Google Analytics.

What I want to achieve is to implement re-targeting, something a bit
different. I want to be able to set the Google Pixel to download onto the
viewers device when they read my PDF.

Thanks for your help!

Hi David,

 

You can set that event as a Goal in Analytics and then you can import it into Adwords as a conversion. From Adwords, you can then create a custom combination list of all converted users.
