Facebook is not only a social network for communication, posting photos and videos with a multimillion audience, but also an excellent tool for eCommerce businesses and even offline retail outlets. Using a business account, you can effectively promote your brand, expand your customer base, and increase sales. Using the capabilities of the advertising office, you can generate new leads for your business and work with them in the future.
Despite the broad functionality of the Facebook advertising account, it is not always convenient to work with new leads in it. For example, managers, in order not to miss a single request, have to constantly monitor incoming messages and then send them for processing, or do it on their own, distracting from monitoring incoming requests. This means that the rest of the customers will have to wait. As a result, they can burn out and go to competitors.
If a business is just developing and it has a small number of requests per day, then managers can cope. Even if not without mistakes and distracted from more important tasks. But as the number of leads grows, it will become difficult to process requests. To avoid this, it is necessary to automate the transfer of leads from Facebook to the system of delegating tasks to responsible managers.
You won't be able to do this within a Facebook business account, a more efficient solution is to upload leads to a service for teamwork, for example, Todoist, and it's already convenient to interact with them there.
Thanks to this, it is possible to distribute leads as tasks among the employees of the company: each manager will be busy with his own requests and will not be distracted by others. As a result, each request will be processed as quickly as possible at all stages: from the receipt of the application to the dispatch of the goods to the client.
Thanks to the integration of a Facebook advertising account and the Todoist teamwork service, you will not miss a single request, will be able to quickly respond to them, thereby increasing customer loyalty to your company.
