So how exactly do Lead Ads work and how do they help you in Digital Marketing?

1. They potentially replace ‘Click to Website’ Ads


Traditionally ‘click to website’ ads have worked like a user watches either a text ad or a display ad, the ad grabs his attention, user clicks on the ad and he is redirected to a landing page where he is shown some information and based on that he is asked his personal details (Name, email, mobile number, city etc)

2. Now Leads can be generated on Facebook Newsfeed itself


As we see users going more towards convenience, Facebook went a step ahead and created the format of Lead ad where in the advertiser can set the targeting and the ad starts showing up in the newsfeed of Facebook users, something like shown in the image –

The ad displays specific call to actions like Get Quote, Apply Now, Download, Learn More, Sign up, Subscribe.

3. It Auto Collects(Pre Fetches) Information from a user


Once a user clicks on the ad a form pops up which is already pre populated with the information the user shares with Facebook thereby reducing the effort of filling up the entire form, all the user has to do is tap on submit button and his information is shared with the advertiser.
