LInk fb ad to automation

LInk fb ad to automation



I am setting up an FB automation campaign to send to leads gained via FB leads. I set this up and ready to rock. Then I want to create a FB ad lead so they click the link and subscribe to my automated email campaign, however I cant see how to link the 2 together. Only send them to my website for more not subscribe to my email campaign list. 


Can anyone tell me how to link the two so when they enter their email it gets added to my contact list which in turn sends them a welcome email from my campaign. (as I have the contact list linked to the automation)


Thanks Harry 


Re: LInk fb ad to automation

Hello @FLM-Training ,


When you create a Facebook Lead Ad, we automatically generate a list in your Contact Management screen called "Facebook Lead Ads." I would recommend editing your automated series to trigger off of leads being put into this list. You can then manually move them to another list for your regular emails, or another list to trigger another automated series.


We do have a known request for the capability to select other lists for Facebook Lead Ads to deposit leads into. I went ahead and attached this request to your case and submitted it to the engineers. If and when there's an update to the request, they'll make sure to notify you.


Did you have any other questions or need any other clarifications?
