There’s a new Instagram metric in Ads Manager.
A few weeks ago, Meta started rolling out the Instagram Profile conversion location for Traffic campaigns. When selected, the The Performance Goal is chosen within the ad set and determines optimization and delivery. How you optimize impacts who sees your ad. Meta will show your ad to people most likely to perform your desired action. More is Instagram Profile Visits.
At the time there didn’t appear to be an Ads Manager metric for this. At least I didn’t have it, since I went through those steps for a tutorial.
You should have it now.
Customize columns in Ads Manager, and at the bottom of Clicks in Engagement, you’ll find Instagram Profile Visits.
You don’t need to optimize for Instagram Profile Visits to use this metric.
When you add a column for Instagram Profile Visits to Ads Manager, you should then see which The campaign is the foundation of your Facebook ad. This is where you'll set an advertising objective, which defines what you want your ad to achieve. More, An ad set is a Facebook ads grouping where settings like targeting, scheduling, optimization, and placement are determined. More, and ads are driving those visits.
If you use any Instagram placements, you’re bound to get some of these actions. If you add URL parameters to links on your Instagram profile, you could get a sense of the percentage of visits that lead to clicks on those links.
