If your business attracts leads using Facebook advertising opportunities, then in the future you may need to handle them conveniently. So, from the collected contacts, you can form a subscriber base in order to turn them into buyers and regular customers. For example, you can send your leads a promotional email.

Various services, such as Ontraport, provide a wide range of options for setting up email campaigns. Of course, you can manually upload leads from Facebook to Ontraport, but this will take a lot of time and burden employees with non-core tasks. Errors due to the human factor are not excluded: some lead may be ignored, while others may be transferred incorrectly.

To do this, you need to integrate the Facebook advertising account with the Ontraport mailing service and enable automatic data updates.
