Lead Generation

A lead generation campaign is a specific ad type that allows you to target users with a form they can fill out directly on Facebook without leaving off-site to a landing page asking for similar information!

Yay for eliminating friction from the path to conversion! 

It is a great way to generate email lists, subscribers, and naturally: leads! For more info on the lead generation campaign type, feel free to enroll in the Blueprint class from Facebook!
