This should keep CPLs low and sign-ups high, but that’s not always the case with Facebook Lead Ads. If you’ve found the lead quality on Facebook to be low, or the cost per lead high, there are other opt-in advertising alternatives that can provide quality leads at scale.

Single opt-in offers a lower cost way to generate leads that are a little less qualified, but still a great addition to your database.
