Facebook is the world’s largest social networking site and it has 1.86 billion active users as of June 30, 2017. Facebook gave new feature to its users called “Lead Ads” on October 4, 2016. In this feature, Facebook allows businesses to create an advertisement on Instagram, Facebook mobile app or web page. Some main features of Facebook Lead Ads are:

  • Create a lead form on Facebook directly from your ad
  • Add multiple products or services to your ad
  • Use image and video to highlight product features
  • Add phone number and email address fields to your ad
  • Remarketing for custom audiences

On June 20, 2017, Facebook added another new feature to its users called “SMS Alert” that will allow businesses to send bulk text messages to their customers and potential customers. This new feature makes it easy for businesses to communicate directly with people who have opted-in to receive updates from them.

Integration of Facebook Lead Ads and SMS Alert

Before integrating both features together, we need to have an understanding of what is SMS Alert. Facebook SMS Alerts is a communication option that lets people opt in to receive SMS messages from businesses they have chosen in the past. It works much like Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp where people can opt in by clicking on a button to confirm their interest in receiving messages from a business they have visited. Now the question is how businesses can integrate these two features together? In order to integrate these two features together, businesses need to:

After filling out all the necessary information, businesses need to click “Save and Continue” button to go to the next step.

If a business wanted their customers or potential customers click on a call-to-action button other than “Call Now”, then they need to choose “Custom Call-to-Action Button” if they are running their ad on mobile app, and if they are running their ad on web page then they need to choose “Custom Link Text” option instead.
