Facebook Lead Ads … Soup To Nuts

Here’s Why You Should Be Using Facebook Lead Ads

Facebook just had their annual conference for developers and advertisers last week, called F8. In and amongst the many announcements were some fascinating numbers. One of the most notable, if you haven’t taken notice already, is the percentage of Facebook users who are on mobile.

I have to admit, it has taken me longer than it should have to really grasp this … and the implications.

Facebook has 1.14 billion active daily users and 934 million active daily mobile users. So clearly … a huge percentage of Facebook users log on to Facebook, at some point during the day, on mobile.

Not only that but 47% of Facebook users ONLY log in via mobile. And 78% of Facebook advertising revenue comes from mobile ads.

These numbers are only going to become more pervasive. Hence the need for Facebook Lead Ads.

Facebook Lead Ads are a native opt-in form. The user, especially the mobile user, doesn’t have to leave Facebook, click around your landing page trying to fat finger their information in your form that may or may not be mobile optimized and then make their way back to Facebook.

Instead, you create the form right on Facebook. Facebook knows who the user is. So, in the first tap, it pre-fills their known information in the form. And, in the second tap, it submits the form to you.

What Sync2CRM does then is pick up that form submission data from Facebook and put it in the email or CRM platform of your choice so you can then begin responding to the lead, showing them ads, triggering automations, etc.

If you are not using Lead Ads, you MUST get on board because you are leaving massive amounts of money on the the table with the mobile market.

How To Set Up and Connect Facebook Lead Ads To Your CRM …

You can kind of ignore that. But the next 27 minutes tell you everything you need to create and connect a Facebook Lead Ad to your CRM or email platform.
