Advertising on Facebook is a great way to reach marketing goals like driving calls to your business, increasing website visits, and growing engagement. But, did you know you can generate leads on Facebook, too?
Here are three Facebook advertising goals you can use if you’re wondering how to generate leads:
1. Lead Ads
Lead Ads are a relatively new Facebook advertising tactic that allows users to convert from your ad directly on Facebook. With Lead Ads, users complete a form on your Facebook ad that is already prepopulated with information they’ve provided to Facebook, like their name, phone number, and email address, which makes it easier for them to submit a form and become a lead.
This type of campaign is ideal if you plan to follow up or call leads back, and works great with a lead management software. Lead Ads are also great for businesses with longer sales cycles where potential customers may need more information about your business or your product/service before making a purchase.
2. Website Clicks
Website Clicks is a Facebook advertising type that drives users to convert on your website. This campaign is ideal for product-based sales or e-commerce like a retail store or pet supplies business. Website Clicks works best with Facebook pixel tracking so you can see how many Facebook users are visiting your website and making a purchase or taking the next step to becoming your customer.
3. Facebook Retargeting
Retargeting campaigns on Facebook allow you to increase engagement with previous site visitors so you increase your chances of converting those visitors into leads. This type of campaign is ideal for most businesses because you can easily target people who have already shown interest in your business. You can also target a “lookalike” audience, which is a group of people who have similarities to your ideal customers.
Determining how your customers typically contact and buy from your business – either online, via phone, or in-person – can help you figure out which advertising strategy you should use to generate leads on Facebook.
