Lead Ads are a type of advertisement that can be placed on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. While Like Ads are used to increase the number of "likes" on Facebook and Instagram pages, Lead Ads aim to quickly generate leads, i.e. new guest and customer contacts.
Simple forms allow users to enter information such as name, email address, location, date of birth, relationship status and more without leaving Facebook. In return, users receive more information, discounts or can enter competitions.
Lead Ads help businesses connect with people who are interested in their products and services. The guest data collected is integrated into the marketing cycle and used for remarketing or newsletter marketing, for example.
