Three Reasons to Run Facebook Lead Ads

opt-in advertising

Lead generation is an important part of any marketing strategy. But there are many different ways to run campaigns. One of the easiest, and often overlooked, is Facebook. Facebook Lead Ads have been around for several years, but they fly under the radar to some of the new advertising products. Other marketers’ mistakes are your gain, as you can quickly generate leads at scale on a platform nearly everyone uses. Here are three reasons to try Facebook lead generation today.

1. Facebook Has Scale

Let’s face it: just about everyone has a Facebook account. Some may login more than they admit, but nearly everyone can be found browsing the social media site at some point. The connection to friends and family has given way to content, and users visit daily to consume the latest information. All of those scrolling fingers provide a large pool of potential leads.

2. Facebook Has A Wealth of Data

That content consumption tells Facebook a lot about their users. What videos do they watch until the end? What articles will the comment on or send to a friend? How long are they reading a post? Each action gives them more knowledge about what users are looking for, whether it’s an overt shopping recommendation or a more passive life stage or milestone. All this information creates a very sophisticated targeting pool for advertisers.

3. Facebook Makes Lead Ads Easy

Facebook knows a lot about its users. This is great for targeting, since they know what people are interested and engaged with. But they also have all of a user’s basic information, like name and email. This makes lead generation incredibly easy, as Facebook Lead Ads can pre-populate lead form fields with known information. This saves time for the user and makes it that much easier for them to click submit and join your email list.
