Facebook Lead Advertising is an effective and efficient way to grow your email database and gather potential customer information, also called sales leads. Thanks to Facebook’s wealth of user data, their targeting capabilities are second to none. And their Lead Ad placement doesn’t require a user to click out of Facebook. They are able to submit all their information without having to leave the site and interrupt their browsing experience. This makes them more likely to quickly hit submit on the Lead Form and pass their personal information on to you. Facebook even pre-fills the form with the user’s verified information! Best of all, there is no need for you to set up multiple landing pages on your website. Everything is handled right on Facebook.
Now that we’ve defined Facebook Lead Advertising itself, there are a few other key terms you should know before you start running your first Facebook Lead Campaign.
The group of people your Facebook Lead Advertising is targeted to. This can be defined by geographics, demographics, interests and user behavior.
