We will tell you how to use the SaveMyLeads online connector to set up automatic uploading of contacts to the Autopilot email service when new leads appear in your Facebook advertising account and spend no more than 5 minutes of your time on this.
The wide functionality of Facebook is actively used by different types of businesses. Thanks to the multibillion-dollar audience of the social network and the correct setting of advertising in your personal account, you can significantly increase your customer or lead base. Working directly in the advertising account is often not enough if you need to upload contact information to third-party systems in order to further interact with them.
One of these systems, which is often indispensable for different types of businesses, is email distribution services, such as Autopilot. With it, you can set up automatic distribution of promotional emails both to the client base and to new leads. As a result, you will constantly stir up the interest of customers in your company, products or services. The audience will be aware of new arrivals of goods, promotions and discounts. Regular mailings help to significantly increase the number of sales.
In online trading, quick interaction with new leads is a guarantee that they will become your clients and not go to competitors. After a new lead has shown interest in your ad, it is important to immediately interest them, and an email newsletter service will help to make this. To connect the work of the Facebook advertising account and the Autopilot email service, you will need to integrate them.
How to set up Facebook and Autopilot integration
To implement the integration of Facebook and the Autopilot email service through the API platform, you need to understand the intricacies of API requests and be able to work with them. This may require the help of a programmer.

As a result, you may lose some leads.
