Overview:

Conversion pixels from Facebook allow you to create Custom Audiences to retarget people who click on your pixeled geni.us links. This means that you can create more targeted campaigns around the items you're promoting by advertising directly to parties who were previously interested in the same, or similar products.

For example - If you promote Game of Thrones Season 1 on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play through a geni.us link, you could pixel that link and create an audience for anyone who clicks. Then, as new seasons become available to stream, you could use that Custom Audience to specifically target users who previously clicked on the first season. This gives you the advantage of only advertising to people who have already shown interest in your promotions, leading to a higher chance of a repeat purchase.
