Facebook introduces Lead Ads to push data into Salesforce and Oracle CRM

9/10/2015 by

Facebook has introduced a feature that allows advertisers to send sales data into customer relationship management (CRM) software like Salesforce and Oracle Marketing Cloud.

Lead Ads automatically fills in user information for them when they sign up for information from businesses through Facebook.

Partnerships with major business software firms allow the data to be fed back into CRM systems in real time, making it readily available for marketers who can then better target promotional efforts and content at potential customers.

Facebook for Business said that Lead Ads simplifies the process of signing up to business information, such as newsletters, offers and events, through a mobile device.

"When someone clicks on your lead ad, a form opens with the person's contact information automatically populated, based on the information they share with Facebook, like their name and email address," the company explained.

"Automatically populating the contact information that people share with Facebook makes filling in the form as fast as two taps: one click on the ad to open the form and another to submit the autofilled form."

Businesses can also customise the forms and are no longer stuck with using the ones Facebook offers as default. Marketers can also add their own disclaimers to ensure that their approved legal language is used.

The addition of Lead Ads, in particular its integration with some of the world's most used CRM systems, is indicative of Facebook expanding the feature set of its social network and creating a better platform for sales, marketing and advertising operations to target customers.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
