5 Ways To Use Seasonality For Lead Generation

Facebook lead generation targeting

One of the best ways to make a lead generation ad stand out is to speak directly to the user. This can be achieved in varying ways, using site cues based on ad placement, retargeting off past browsing behavior and narrowly defined demographic targeting that allows you to make certain assumptions. But perhaps one of the easiest way to stand out is to be timely, using current events, holidays and seasons to your advantage.

Seasonal Offers

Not every industry or business will be able to operationalize this, but if there is any way to tie your lead generation offer into a holiday or current event, do it. Retailers have been doing this forever, capitalizing on all kinds of holidays as a reason to discount merchandise. Why shouldn’t you? Every day has a different random holiday to commemorate, and social media makes many of them far more well-known than ever before. You can also tie into news headlines (but be prepared to act fast!) or simple weather patterns, crafting “warm up” and “cool down” offers. Anything to make your lead generation ad seem timely for today.

How To: Optimize Your Facebook Lead Form

facebook lead ad form

There are many different components to a Facebook Lead Ad: the initial ad creative a user sees in their Newsfeed; the Welcome Screen they first see when they click the ad; the lead form itself; and the confirmation screen. And each of these screens has a number of interchangeable, customizable pieces and features. It’s a lot to test! We find that it’s best to break things down piece by piece and optimize one at a time.

The Facebook Lead Form is one of the places it’s easy to get off track. The Facebook Lead Form makes more than 20 questions available to ask, plus a custom field to enter your own. So before you even look at the Facebook Lead Form creator, write down the information you need from customers. Then, take a long, hard look and determine what you really need, and what you want.

Are Landing Pages Dead?

landing pages

The digital landscape is constantly changing. Every year there are new trends to try and best practices to adopt. As marketing strategies evolve, some mainstays of traditional advertising fall by the wayside. And it looks like landing pages might be one of them. Think about it: direct mail paved the way for email, which has been steadily taken over by social media. And as user-generated content spreads across the internet, landing pages are on the decline.

The internet has grown to include webpages about anything and everything, becoming a far more cluttered landscape for advertisers to navigate. Users have access to more information than ever before, but many actually visit fewer sites, sticking to content aggregators like Facebook. Good news for Facebook, but bad for your website. Or is it? What if you could put a small part of your site right into Facebook? With Facebook Lead Ads, you can.
