12 of the Best Facebook Post Ideas for Facebook Lead Generation

How to Generate Leads on Facebook

Lead Ads

Lead ads are arguably the most popular tool used on Facebook to generate leads. These are posts that are sponsored by your business and they appear on your audience’s News Feeds, Stories, Marketplace, and more. These ads target Facebook users who are most likely to be interested in your company based on the behaviors they display both on Facebook and off. Once a user clicks on a lead ad, they’re prompted to fill out a form and submit contact information to your company. 

Facebook Posts

Your Facebook posts are probably what got your audience’s attention in the first place. These can be one-off posts or a dedicated campaign that points viewers back to your website or Facebook page. You can include a link to a form within the actual post, or direct users to a landing page where they can submit their information. 

Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger is like a built-in live chat feature for your Facebook Page. Users can reach out to you in a private 1:1 conversation and ask questions about your brand and its products. 

Don’t have the time to manage a live chat channel 24/7? No problem. You can install a bot on your page to respond to customer inquiries. 

Whether it’s a bot or a person, your team can use Facebook Messenger to direct interested visitors to your website and landing pages so they can convert from prospects to leads. 

Facebook Events

Does your company host an annual networking event? Perhaps has a charity or a fundraiser that users can donate to? Share it on Facebook.

You can use the Events tool to create dedicated pages for your upcoming events. Your audience can sign up, fill out forms, and become leads all while registering for your event in one place. 

Facebook Live Video

If you’re looking for a more spontaneous approach to lead generation, you might want to try Facebook Live Video. Live Video creates a real-time, public stream that your audience can watch on their News Feed. Viewers react and comment on your video as it’s running and you can use this platform as a way to direct prospects to your marketing content.

For example, if you’re partnering with a local celebrity for an upcoming road race, you might ask them to “Go Live” on Facebook and show your followers what they’re doing to prepare for the race. Not only does this give people a behind-the-scenes look at the race prep, but it also gets the word out about your event. 

When you’re video is over, the recording is still available on your Facebook page. That way, people who may have missed the live version can catch the recording later on. 

Photo Albums

Keeping with our road race example, let’s your race when off without a hitch and it was a massive success. Your marketing team was there the entire time taking photos and capturing the most exciting moments from the day. 

But, the marketing team wasn’t just taking photos for fun. They’re planning to repurpose those images as lead generation content on your Facebook page. 

How? For starters, they can post a photo album on your company’s Timeline. This album would show followers how much fun and excitement there was at your race and it would motivate people to sign up for your next one. All you have to do now is include a link to your website in the comments, and you’ll be generating new leads in no time. 

These are just a few ideas for leveraging Facebook for lead generation. Read on for some more ways you can use this platform to generate leads for your business.
