How to get the most from Zapier and Facebook Pages
A Facebook Page is where many freelancers focus their efforts. They have an engaged audience full of potential customers. Every new post is an opportunity to capture leads and build their business. Zapier helps you do even more because you can automate some of your work.
Here are a few things to try out.
1. Turn your blogs into Facebook posts
Adding fresh blog content to your company's Facebook Page is time-consuming. However, it is crucial to inform your target demographic through your various social media channels. Allow Zapier to handle it for you by publishing fresh RSS content to your Facebook Page automatically.
2. Connect Instagram to your Facebook profile

Ways to use Zapier with Facebook Lead Ads
Facebook launched Lead Ads to bypass the pain points of submitting a form and make lead generation simpler.
Facebook lead advertising enables customers to browse your offerings without exiting the Facebook app and get the information they seek with a few clicks.
Lead Ads makes it simple for individuals to sign up for information from companies they're interested in, giving marketers a greater click-through rate and even more strong leads at a reduced cost.
Here are some ways to make it even better with Zapier.
Send an email to new Facebook leads
One of the best ways to start off a connection with a new client is with a warm and kind welcome email. You can use Zapier to automate the process by setting up an event whenever a new lead responds to your call to action on Facebook Lead Ads. Using this add-on, Gmail will immediately personalize an email template using their information and send it on your behalf. You may also share their information with a colleague on your team so that they can follow up.
Get an email alert for new followers or leads
Those adverts were designed to bring in fresh leads, not to make you spend time looking for them. Instead of manually checking for new submissions, you can have Zapier send you notifications whenever someone fills out your Facebook Lead Ads form. From that point on, each new Facebook lead will automatically have their contact details sent to you.
Add new leads to Google Sheets
It takes time to construct a spreadsheet, but once it's done, it's a great tool for quickly filtering and organizing a large number of potential leads. So that you can focus on marketing, you could use this integration between Facebook Lead Ads and Google Sheets to create a direct connection between your records and ads. Once this Zap is activated, every new Facebook ad lead will cause a new row to be created in Google Sheets, complete with all the relevant information.
Automate email marketing with Zapier and Mailchimp
Using Facebook Lead Ads to collect contact information from interested parties is a great strategy for expanding your customer base, but it's easy to let follow-ups with those leads slide in favor of more urgent issues. This integration between Facebook Lead Ads and MailChimp eliminates the need for you to manually add new leads to an existing marketing campaign, as they will be added to the mailing list you've chosen instantly.
