How to Setup Facebook Lead Ads Email Notifications

Facebook Lead Notifications via Email

It’s hard to believe Facebook doesn’t send Facebook lead ads email notifications whenever a new lead is generated. After all, studies have shown that responding to new leads as quickly as possible significantly improve sales conversion rates.

If you’re not responding to Facebook leads within an hour, then conversions from lead to sale can suffer significantly, which means you’re wasting your ad budget.

Having leads delivered instantly via email, instead of having to login to Facebook and download a CSV file, ensures you can respond as soon as possible. It also means you can easily share leads with your business colleagues.

Using LeadSync, you can receive 30 lead ad email alerts free each month, or unlimited alerts with a paid account.
