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: Split Test Your Facebook Lead Ads

Facebook lead ad split test

One of the key components of Facebook Lead Ad optimization is split testing. Also known as an A/B test, split testing entails splitting an audience into two random segments and showing them creative that differs in one key way. This can be your Facebook Lead Ad copy, imagery, offer, CTA or any other element of your ad. The key is to test one item at a time, keeping all the rest the same, in order to find the variable that works best.
