5 Ways To Use Seasonality For Lead Generation

Facebook lead advertising 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.

Users are much more willing to give up information that is quick, easy and painless. They can easily click on the ad, submit the form and voila!
