How to receive Facebook leads’ email notifications for instant follow-up

Facebook Lead Ads can be an exceptionally useful tool for both B2B and B2C businesses that are looking to collect lead information instead of just driving a quick eCommerce sale. 

They are, of course, only as powerful as what you do with the information after you get it.

It’s crucial to be able to follow up with leads quickly, so having the right Facebook lead notification software in place to get lead form notifications sent to your email fast— without relying on manual data syncs— is the best way to maximize the investment and momentum from your lead ads. 

That’s what this post is all about— we’re going to take a look at how to receive Facebook Lead Ads email notifications for free so that your sales team will be able to respond and act right away.

Why you should be using Facebook Leads Ads 

As a quick recap, in case you’re unfamiliar with Facebook Lead Ads, they offer numerous benefits that many brands have been able to take advantage of.

These ads, when clicked, open a native, mobile-friendly lead form that Facebook will auto-fill as much as possible. You can answer a few custom qualifying questions along with the user’s name and contact information.

These ads can give you great reach and leverage Facebook’s incredibly powerful targeting and retargeting systems. It’s a great way to capture lead information so that you can keep users moving through the funnel.

It’s also relatively cost-effective. 

How much does it cost to get a lead on Facebook?

The cost per lead on Facebook varies from brand to brand and industry to industry. It can also shift as changes happen in the Facebook Ad marketplace.

That being said, the average cost per lead seems to be around $17-20 USD, based on current data. Considering this will get you a qualified and engaged lead’s name, this is often extremely affordable for many brands who are choosing to advertise on Facebook. 

Why you need Facebook leads email notifications 

Facebook Lead Ads can bring in high-quality leads at scale, giving you a significant volume of contacts to follow up with.

It’s imperative, however, to have Facebook lead form notifications set up so that your sales team is always alerted about incoming leads.

Otherwise, it’s easy to miss them. The data syncing process is not automated on its own, and without proper Facebook lead notification software and integrations, you can end up needing to rely on manual downloads and transfers to your CRM software. 

This takes time, and may mean that you’re going 24 hours between a lead filling out a form and your team even knowing about it. And that’s assuming that a download of the data isn’t missed, or that there aren’t lags over the weekend or a holiday. 

Facebook lead form notifications going straight to your email, however, are a game changer. Your sales team will get email alerts letting them know when new lead information comes in so they can call right away.

For example, a few months ago I saw a lead ad for a pilates studio near me. I’d been contemplating joining, and this offered a free class. So I filled out the lead form… and got a text within minutes asking if we could do a call to set up the intro offer.

SMS interaction example

If they’d called a week later, I probably wouldn’t have had that same level of enthusiasm, and I might have even found a more responsive competitor. They gained a monthly client because of prompt attention to a lead ad.
