How To Set Up Facebook Lead Ads Through HubSpot

[fa icon="calendar'] September 26, 2017 / by Eric Daniel

Facebook Lead Ads are the newest way to capture high quality leads in the place where your customers are spending the most time – and they don't even have to leave the platform. You can create custom forms inside Facebook that automatically populate with a user's Facebook data. If set up correctly, users can go from impression to lead in just two clicks.

We were so excited about this new feature that we made a how-to video as soon as we could!


It seems like HubSpot is just as excited about lad ads as we are! They've dedicated space in the content menu specifically for the ads tool. To find the tool, navigate to Content > Ads.

If you've never used lead ads before, hubspot has created an intro video that showcases real examples of lead ads in action (the one we made above is pretty great, too). When you're ready, click "create a lead ad".

For now, you still need to connect a personal profile to HubSpot in order to access lead ads, but they're already working on a way around this. You'll thank yourself in the long run if you set up your Facebook page on Facebook Business. For now, navigate to the page you want to run an ad from and click 'continue'.

The default option on a lead ad form is email and full name, but you have any number of options, including relationship status and custom questions. Select your custom fields and click 'next'.
