To automatically send SMS messages to leads that came to you from Facebook ads, you need to integrate your advertising account with the Messente service. With the SaveMyLeads platform, you can connect the systems in 5 minutes without the help of programmers.
If your business regularly needs to send SMS messages to its leads, then you have probably thought about how to automate and speed up this process. The manager may miss an important message, especially if there are a lot of questions and messages from leads. For him, this is an additional burden, which means that leads will inevitably have to wait.
Online, waiting for a potential client is tantamount to giving it to competitors with your own hands. Users remain loyal only if the response to their appeal comes very quickly. Moreover, this does not have to be a result, but a notification that he was heard and soon he will receive an answer.
Even during a small delay in response, the lead may have time to turn to more agile (or rather, better automated) competitors. In order for you to be able to automatically send an SMS message to a potential client immediately after he wrote to you on Facebook, you need to integrate the advertising account with the Massente mailing service. Just imagine: a potential buyer reacted to your advertisement and left the social network, and work with him continues: he immediately receives an SMS that his message was seen and processed - this is a service of the 21st century.
