Facebook Lead Ads and HubSpot CRM Integration

The Facebook lead ad is one of the important campaigns that make the lead generation process easy. If you are new to this type of campaign, you may ask, what is a lead ad, and how does it work? Simply put, a lead ad is a form pops that appears when your target audience taps your ad. The form will be automatically populated with the Facebook contact information of the user who engaged with your ad. Here is a form sample.

What can you do to close the lead?

Lead is a person who is interested in buying your product or service, and in successfully converting the lead to a customer, you definitely need to go with a process. Here, the process is called sales pipelines.

It’s too hard to track the sales pipelines for the collected leads using papers or excel sheets, especially if you have a big leads list and work as a team. Let me give you some reasons why you cannot use an excel sheet for this purpose. Simply, you cannot track email communication, calls, tasks, and meetings using an excel sheet.

So, you may ask, what is the alternative method to track the sales pipelines? My answer is HubSpot CRM.
