What separates a tool from a partner?


A partner works with you, grows with you, and continually makes it easier for you to achieve your goals.

At WhatConverts, we’re strong believers in being a partner for agencies and marketers, not just a tool.

It’s why this month’s product update is chick full of new features to keep you growing:

  • Advanced Matching in Meta
  • Enhanced Filtering in Lead Manager
  • Official App Launch in Shopify App Store

    If you’re aware of Google’s Enhanced Conversions, you know they capture conversion data in situations where it wouldn’t usually be measured.

    For instance:

    • Offline conversions
    • Conversions where all cookies are blocked
    • Conversions from a different device or browser

    Well, Facebook has its own version of Enhanced Conversions called “advanced matching”. With advanced matching, you can cross-reference first-party and Meta user data to attribute these conversion types to your marketing.

    And we’re proud to say WhatConverts now supports Facebook advanced matching.

    So say you’re running Facebook Ads and a user:

    1. Clicks your ad
    2. Navigates to your website
    3. Visits your pricing page
    4. Then makes a purchase from another browser

    WhatConverts can now cross-reference that user data with Facebook and attribute the conversion to your ad. Without it, this conversion wouldn’t show up at all.

    Ultimately, that means more accurate campaign measurement and a clearer understanding of what’s working and what isn’t.

    Check out the resource below for more on advanced matching in Meta Ads.

    Shopify App Now in App Store

    The WhatConverts Shopify App is now live in the Shopify App Store! This app makes it a snap to start tracking all your Shopify leads.

    Enhanced Filtering in Lead Manager

    For many users, the Lead Manager is the hub of WhatConverts.

    Every day, WhatConverts customers use the Lead Manager’s filtering capabilities to:

    • See which marketing is producing leads
    • Understand who these leads are
    • Organize their views to gather powerful insights quickly

    And today, we’re excited to announce enhanced filtering capabilities.

    You can now use regex text strings (a.k.a. “regular expressions” or “regexp”) for even more precise filtering.

    For example, let’s say you want to filter out all Medium values besides “organic” and “CPC.”

    Before this update, that wouldn’t be possible—you could only filter by a single value.

    But today? It’s simple.

    Just separate the two values by the “|” symbol and hit enter (“organic|cpc”).

    Now you’ll only see leads with Mediums of either organic or CPC.

    There are plenty of other ways to use regex to refine your insights. So be sure to check out the regex cheat sheet linked below.
