How to connect Facebook Lead Ads with Aventri

Connect Facebook Lead Ads to Aventri with LeadsBridge

Facebook Lead Ads » Aventri

In this article, you'll learn how to set up the bridge and connect Facebook Lead Ads to My CRM Example using LeadsBridge.


Facebook Lead Ads are a type of ads specifically designed to collect leads. In comparison to traditional ads that drive to website landing pages, with Facebook Lead Ads, the process of generating leads on Facebook is much easier. When users click on a Lead Ad on Facebook they instantly visualize a registration form to leave their data, without leaving the social network and the opt-in forms are pre-filled. Moreover, Facebook Lead Ads are optimized for mobile navigation and allow advertisers to easily collect leads from smartphones and tablets. User's data are automatically added by Facebook which takes them from their profiles.
