Telesign is a communication platform that provides businesses with tools for identifying customers and quickly interacting with them through various channels (SMS, Viber, WhatsApp). This service is suitable for businesses operating in the areas of financial services, software development, e-commerce, and more. In our article, you will learn how to set up Telesign and Facebook integration to automate the transfer of leads from a social network to the database of the communication platform.
If you promote goods or services using the Facebook Lead Ads tool and use the Telesign platform to communicate with clients, in particular to create and launch SMS mailings, you probably manually enter new leads attracted from the social network into your subscriber base stored in this service. Automating the transfer of lead data will free you from at least one workflow and save your most valuable resource – time. By combining these systems with each other, you can achieve increased productivity. And not only personally but also as a team.
Our no-code online connector, SaveMyLeads, will help you do this. Having successfully configured Facebook and Telesign integration, you will make sure that the contact information of the new lead immediately appears in the communication service database in the form of a new entry. You will no longer need to manually enter a whole series of buyer or customer data (first and last name, phone number, and so on). This way, your work will be optimized, and the clients will have a positive experience with the quick feedback that you can now provide them.
How to Set Up a Connection Between Facebook and Telesign
Programmers can create a Facebook Lead Ads and Telesign integration using the API. However, do not rush to entrust this task to anyone. Let's first weigh the pros and cons of such a decision. Let's say you have an IT department. It may take its employees several hours or even days to fulfill your request because they have a number of other equally important responsibilities. Third-party programmers can issue an invoice that will cause a significant blow to your budget. We offer you a faster, friendlier and, importantly, budget-friendly alternative – the SaveMyLeads online connector. Its interface and operating algorithm are so simple and easy to understand that even a completely inexperienced user can set up the necessary connection in just a few minutes.
The Telesign Facebook integration scheme looks like this: “data source – online connector – data receiver.” SaveMyLeads continuously monitors your Facebook business page and, as soon as a new lead appears there, immediately transfers it to Telesign. To set up and launch such automation, you only need to perform a few simple steps. Why put off what you can do right now? Let's start!
