It’s hard to believe that Facebook doesn’t send new Facebook lead ads notifications to advertisers via email. After all, responding to new leads as quickly as possible has been shown to significantly improve sales conversion rates.
Having lead data delivered instantly via email, instead of having to login to Facebook and download leads as a CSV file, ensures you can respond as soon as possible. It also means you can easily share leads with your colleagues.
If you’re running Facebook ad campaigns for a client, setting up lead ad notifications also means you don’t have to send your clients a CSV, or ask them to login to Facebook and download their leads.
The instructions will show you how to setup facebook leads ads email notifications, using LeadSync. You’ll be able to receive leads in your Gmail account or any other email service.
Here’s a step by step guide to what’s covered in the video:

When Facebook launched Lead Ads in June 2016, I started using the format for myself and my clients as part of the online marketing agency I was running. It was frustrating to have to login to Facebook and download a CSV file and email it to clients each day.
That was the motivation behind developing LeadSync: a Facebook Ads application that works with the lead ad format, to forward new leads instantly, including the lead data.
Now we deliver around 150,000 leads per month via email, for 1000’s of advertisers, in a diverse range of industries including real estate, automotive, fitness & health… just to name a few.
