Do you want the leads collected through the Facebook form to be automatically sent to you in the messenger? We will tell you how to set everything up in 10 minutes and without a single line of code.
How to transfer leads from Facebook to Slack
The automatic transfer of data from Facebook to Slack allows you to optimize the work with the collected leads.
Immediately after it appears in the form of a new lead, it will come to you in the form of a personal message in the messenger. This eliminates the need to regularly check forms and the time it takes to manually download data from them. As a result, you will be able to respond to customers faster.
Each message can contain any lead data that the user has left in the Facebook form. You can choose to send all this information or only the most important details: for example, the customer's name and email address.
In addition, all collected leads will be stored in Slack, just like regular messages. They can be viewed at any time. And there will be no need to worry about old contacts being lost or deleted.
If you use Slack as a work messenger, you will get another significant advantage. Automatic transmission of leads in the form of messages will allow you to be less distracted by third-party services, because both task discussions and customer data will be available in the same system.
You don't need to be a programmer to automate the upload of leads from Facebook to Slack. All you have to do is register with the SaveMyLeads service and use it to set up a connection between the social network and the messenger. It only takes 10 minutes of your time. And our instructions will help you figure it out.
