MessageWhiz is a cloud-based communication platform operating under the CPaaS (Communications Platform as a Service) model. It offers high-quality tools for SMS and RCS (Rich Communication Services) mailings, voice calls, online chat, and call center organization. Additionally, it provides ready-made solutions for businesses in finance, email marketing, logistics, travel, and other sectors. In our article, you will learn how to set up the integration between MessageWhiz and Facebook to automate the sending of SMS messages to leads acquired from this social network.
If you promote a product or service on Facebook using the Lead Ads tool and utilize MessageWhiz for SMS campaigns, you're likely manually transferring lead data from forms to the mailing service. We offer you the opportunity to automate the transfer of potential clients' contact information. This can be achieved by linking the social network to the communication platform and adjusting the settings accordingly. By doing so, you will eliminate one of the monotonous and time-consuming tasks, leading to increased productivity. This will positively impact the efficiency of the department and the company as a whole.
To automate the transfer of lead data, we recommend using the codeless online connector SaveMyLeads. By setting up the Facebook-Leads and MessageWhiz integration using this tool, you will see that the prospect receives an SMS message immediately after submitting the form. You no longer have to manually fill your client base on the communication platform. This will optimize your work, and customers will appreciate the prompt feedback you can now provide them.
Setting up Facebook and MessageWhiz Integration
The operating principle of SaveMyLeads is intuitive, and the interface is user-friendly. Therefore, do not worry if you lack experience in system integration and programming in general. The service developers have ensured that it is as easy and comfortable as possible for you to interact with. To begin, imagine Facebook Lead Ads and MessageWhiz integration as a visual scheme: “data source – online connector – data receiver.” SaveMyLeads continuously monitors your Facebook business account. As soon as a new lead sends you a completed form, the received data is transferred directly to the MessageWhiz platform. In response, the lead receives a prepared SMS from the communication platform. This is how the system works.
To set up and start automatic data transfer, you will need to follow a few simple steps. This will only take you 5–10 minutes. Let's start right now!

Why Choose SaveMyLeads for Facebook MessageWhiz Integration?
Some people believe that there is no need to bother with the settings yourself if you can simply entrust the task of integrating the systems to a professional. If you are one of those who hold this standpoint, carefully weigh the pros and cons. If you turn to in-house programmers for help, you risk wasting time. It is unlikely that they will stop all their tasks and urgently begin to fulfill your request. The wait for results can last for hours or even days, depending on how busy they are. Hiring a third-party specialist will solve the issue over time, but will most likely hit your budget.
