Driving leads with Facebook ads? Then you will certainly need the ability to send messages to social network users who have shown interest in your advertising. For example, with the help of SMS, you can inform such potential customers about the manager's soon response, thank for leaving contacts, send discounts, and so on.

SaveMyLeads allows you to quickly connect Facebook to the MSG91 marketing email service and set up automatic sending of such messages. Automation works as follows. When a new lead appears in the form, SaveMyLeads uploads their data to MSG91 and initiates an SMS to this person. You set the text of the message at your discretion when setting up the service.

By setting up automation, you will get several tangible benefits:

1. Get rid of routine actions. You do not have to upload each lead from Facebook, extract contacts from it, copy them to the mailing service and click the send button. SaveMyLeads will take care of these tasks, and you will be able to use the released resources for other work tasks.

In addition, SaveMyLeads is able to automatically insert the client's first name, last name, and other data into the message text. Thus, the service can personalize each SMS without forcing you to edit it.

2. Speed ​​up the sending of messages. SaveMyLeads monitors the emergence of new leads on Facebook every second. As soon as the next user leaves the data in the form, our service immediately starts sending him a message. What's more, SaveMyLeads is open 24/7. Therefore, your customers will receive the necessary messages always on time, regardless of time and date.

3. Insure yourself against mistakes. When manually adding data, an employee may write down the phone number incorrectly, miss or confuse important contacts. As a result, the client will not receive the message. Automation eliminates such problems. SaveMyLeads uploads contact information to the mailing service in the same form in which the client leaves it in the form.
