The need to quickly send messages to your potential buyers arises in different types of business. In online trading, this is a very important stage, on which it largely depends whether your lead client becomes a client or goes to competitors. Network users need a quick, almost instantaneous response to their requests. And we are talking not only about orders, but also about the questions they ask.

If this is not happening, the lead quickly burns out. Most online shopping is done on an emotional high. And if, immediately after contacting you, the client receives the message “Your request is already being processed”, “We have received your question and will respond within an hour”, this will significantly increase the chances that the lead will become your buyer. To realize these opportunities, you need to connect (integrate) the work of the Facebook advertising account with the SMS service, for example, Infobip.

How to set up Facebook and Infobip integration

To connect the work of these systems via API, you need to be able to send API requests and work with the API protocol, so a programmer can handle this task. If you do not have such a specialist in the state, then you can hire him for outsourcing.

This, on the one hand, additional costs of both time and money, and on the other hand, makes the business dependent on the services of a programmer: if you need to configure the integration, make a new one, you will have to contact this or another specialist every time.

To avoid all these problems, use the SaveMyLeads online connector. Using this platform, you can easily link the work of the systems you need on your own or entrust it to any employee.
