Create an Instagram or Instagram FMP Campaign


The following document defines the process for creating an Instagram and/or Instagram FMPs (Facebook Marketing Partners) campaign within Free App Analytics.

NOTE: Instagram is property of Facebook, so Instagram tracking will be setup within the Facebook Campaign.

NOTE: The acronym FMP began to be used in early 2015 and was previously known as PMD (Preferred Marketing Developer). FMP and PMD refer to the same class of vetted and officially approved Facebook partners.

NOTE: Before creating a Tracker with an FMP publisher, contact the FMP to ensure compatibility with the app operating platform.

 

Data Needed Before Beginning Process:

  • Instagram App ID (15 digit id obtained in the Facebook power editor account)

NOTE: The Instagram setup process for iOS and Android is similar and therefore this document will cover the setup for both operating systems, with specific differences noted.

Install Postback Configuration

WARNING: If you are running both Facebook and Instagram campaigns, only ONE Install Postback is required for both partners. If you create an INSTALL Postback for Facebook, do not create an INSTALL postback for Instagram. We recommend configuring just the Facebook Install Postback.

 

  1. Select App Tools () > Partner Configuration.
  2.  

     

  3. Click Add a Configuration.
  4. Select Network Partner > Instagram.
  5. NOTE: To create a Postback for an FMP (Facebook Marketing Partner), select the corresponding FMP network.

  6. Click Go.
  7.  

     

  8. Select Install > Postback Tools () > Edit.

  10. Select a Delivery Delay. (optional)
  11. Select a Retry Attempts. (optional)
  12. Click Save.
  13.  


Post-Install Event Postback Configuration

WARNING: If you are running both Facebook and Instagram campaigns, care must be taken when creating Post-Install Event Postbacks. If a Post-Install Event Postback is set up for Facebook with the Delivery Method set to “All,” the same Post-Install Event Postback should not be set up for Instagram. The opposite is true as well. If a Post-Install Event Postback is set up for Instagram with the Delivery Method set to “All,” the same Post-Install Event Postback should not be set up for Facebook. If a post-install event postback is created for both (with delivery method set to “All”), the number of events will be incorrect in Facebook’s dashboard, since Facebook will not deduplicate the events.

If a Post-Install Event Postback Delivery Method is set to “Network Only,” the same Post-Install Event Postback can be set up for Facebook/Instagram. For more information about setting up Post-Install Event Postbacks properly for Facebook and Instagram, contact your Client Success Management team.

 

NOTE: If you are running both Facebook and Instagram campaigns only one postback will need to be created for post-install events. If a post-install event postback is created for both the number of events will be incorrect in Facebooks dashboard as the events are not deduplicated.

  1. Select App Tools () > Partner Configuration.
  2.  

     

  3. Locate the desired event and Click Edit Postback.
  4. Enter the Instagram App ID.
  5. Enter the Instagram Event Name.
  6. NOTE: For post-install event postback, a valid Instagram Event Name must be used. For more information about the naming conventions required for a post-install event postback, refer to Facebook for Developers App Events support document.

  7. Enter the Campaign ID into the Kochava Click Tracker ID.
  8. Select a Delivery Delay. (optional)
  9. Select a Retry Attempts. (optional)
  10. Select a Delivery Method. (optional)
  11.
