Whether you’ve got a list of leads you need to retarget outside of the inbox or you’re in search of brand new leads, social ads offer cost-effective targeting and wide reach.
Nearly everyone has a Facebook account these days, from pre-teens to grandparents. Each generation uses it a little differently, but there’s no denying it has tremendous influence in today’s digital world. Facebook’s ad targeting capabilities are second to none, and Facebook Lead Ads can be an incredibly powerful tool to help build your email list. But are they right for you? Here are a few reasons they work well and are worth testing…and one reason you might want to focus lead generation efforts elsewhere.
Online lead generation used to include a complicated web of offers, ads, landing pages, and tracking codes. This scared away many businesses who could seriously benefit from lead generation. Luckily, we’ve since entered the era of leads without landing pages. This cuts the number of pieces in your lead generation campaign by half, saving you time, money and headache as you build a lead generation funnel. The key is to keep it simple by using the 3 Rs of lead generation without landing pages.
Lead nurturing email subject lines have long been a struggle for marketers. They’re the first thing a customer or potential customer sees, and the biggest reason they click to open your email, or send it to the trash without even reading your content or seeing an offer. They are vulnerable to screen size, truncating or cutting off at varying points depending on where and how you read your email. Tricky characters or emoji can render differently, altering your message.
Facebook Lead Ads are a very powerful product that allows you to capture a potential customer’s information quickly and easily, without the hassle of building a landing page or interrupting the customer’s day by requiring them to click off of Facebook. The lead form is contained within the ad for easy completion and data transfer.
Sounds simple, right? And it is—when executed correctly. But a Facebook Lead Ad can’t do all the work on its own. For the best performance at the lowest cost, you need to build a lead funnel using additional Facebook advertising products and content tactics.
