Optimize your marketing strategy with Meta Pixel & App Events

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Monday 18 July 2022

In 2022, Facebook, with its nearly 2.5 billion active users, is as much of a social networking site as it is a sales channel . The platform allows for more than simple brand-customer interactions—it’s one of the best channels for reaching your target audience, especially thanks to the precision of the advertising targeting it offers. Indeed, beyond its huge user base, Facebook has extremely detailed information about its users. This will allow you to target high-potential audiences to promote your products. 


While your mobile app remains the best option to sell your products, integrating Facebook as a complementary sales channel will help you reach more potential shoppers.  
GoodBarber offers you solutions to integrate your app with Facebook: Facebook Marketplace  and now Meta Pixel & App Events  , allowing you to analyze your user's behavior and optimize your marketing strategy. 

The Meta Pixel & App Events extension is available for Content Apps and eCommerce Apps.

Set up double opt-in in your GoodBarber app

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Tuesday 21 June 2022

Email marketing, or digital marketing in general, is one of the most effective ways to reach your audience and extend your customer base around the world. Depending on your offer, you can have customers all over the world while running your business from Europe.
All countries have their own data regulations and laws that must be understood and upheld. Failure to do so could result in serious fines. GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) represents these laws for the European Union.
However, individual courts within these countries, such as Germany, have their own legal interpretations. 

Having an opt-in option and more specifically Double opt-in is one of the ways to ensure you receive consent from your users to send communications to them. The double opt-in is now available on your GoodBarber apps.

It is by no means legal advice and does not pretend to represent itself as such. You should always talk to your own legal counsel before determining your corporate direction.

Coral Hill Church App: the most accessible way to communicate with their congregation

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Wednesday 15 June 2022

Coral Hill church is located 5 miles outside of Glasgow, Barren County, Kentucky, in what is known as the Southern bible belt. The church was founded by 12 individuals over a hundred years ago – around 1904. Although it is located outside of town, 400 people come every Sunday to worship at the church, an anomaly, as most modern congregations are in the middle of town. The congregation sees themselves as neither modern nor traditional but rather in-between the two. It is a blue-collar congregation, aspiring to be multi-cultural, and open-minded in everything they do. Missions are very important to the church – often sending out people not just to stay active locally in their community, but also globally, following the church’s foundational principals – continuing to expand God’s kingdom wherever they go.

How to choose the right colors for your mobile app

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Monday 23 May 2022

The use of colors in marketing relies on the science according to which colors can influence consumer behavior. And the color trends every year tend to represent the general mood or vibe of what's going on around the world. 
This year is no exception with Pantone revealing Very Peri as the color of 2022.
