When leads arrive, it often becomes necessary to send them various messages. For example, it can be an SMS with thanks for the order, the response time of the manager, the order number, or other similar content.

The SaveMyLeads service allows you to quickly set up automatic sending of such SMS to new leads from Facebook through the eSputnik marketing mailing system. Automation works as follows. When a potential client fills out an application in the lead form, SaveMyLeads transfers the contact and other data left by the user to eSputnik and initiates the sending of a message.

What are the benefits of automation? Here are just a few of them:

1. Reducing the number of routine activities. You don't have to keep track of new leads in the form, copy their data to eSputnik and send messages manually. All these actions will be performed by SaveMyLeads.

Moreover, the service eliminates the need to type and personalize SMS text for each client. It is enough to set up a text template once and specify where the recipient's name should be displayed. As a result, SaveMyLeads will substitute it automatically.

2. Instant message delivery. You will save yourself from worrying that you will not be able to send SMS to all customers in time. Even with a large flow of leads. After all, SaveMyLeads monitors Facebook every second, and as soon as a new lead appears in the form, the service instantly initiates sending him a message. No matter how many customers there are, they will all receive their SMS immediately after filling out the form.

3. No errors in contact details. You will insure yourself against inaccuracies when entering data, which often occur when sending messages manually. A person can, for example, write down a phone number incorrectly or mix up the recipient's name. Automation does not allow such errors.

How to setup Facebook and eSputnik integration

You don't have to write any code to set up automatic sending of messages. All you have to do is register on the SaveMyLeads website, choose to connect eSputnik to Facebook, and follow the prompts on the screen. They'll help you link these platforms' accounts and choose your upload options.

To make it easier for you to understand, we will analyze the auto-send settings step by step. We will assume that you have already prepared an eSputnik account for work, and also created a lead form on Facebook. In addition, be sure to add your contacts to the form as a new lead - this will come in handy for the test. After that, you can start setting up.

Getting started with SaveMyLeads

Registering on the SaveMyLeads website. Then we enter your personal account and click "Create connection".
