How To Export Leads From Facebook Ads Manager
If you are running Facebook Ads, odds are that you will want to export lead information. While there are quite a few ways to do this, the most basic way is to export lead info in a spreadsheet, giving you the ability to manage the leads any way you choose.
Another option is to integrate your CRM with your ads account so that new leads are automatically created in your customer relationship management platform.
Nevertheless, the rest of this article outlines how to export lead information from Facebook manually.
Manually Export Leads From Facebook Ads Manager
- Go to your Facebook Business page.
- Click More.
- Click Publishing Tools.
- Select Lead Ad Forms.
- Find the form that you would like to export leads from.
- Click Download New Leads or Download by Date Range.
A user must have admin permissions in order to download lead information. Therefore, if you are unable to download leads from your form, then your Facebook user may not have permissions to do so.
In order to gain admin status, you’ll have to remain signed in as your user & request admin access to the account.
Your request has to be approved by the admin on the account. More often than not, we find that clients in this situation have an employee, agency representative, friend, or family member as the admin on the account.
We can not stress this point enough, but it is extremely important that you are maintaining admin access to all your business accounts.
Important Notes & Best Practices
Aside from maintaining admin access to your business accounts, there are some other best practices that we’d like to share when it comes to your Facebook Ads account.
For one, you should be exporting lead information regularly. Facebook only retains your lead information for 90 days. Therefore, you should be designating a time each week when you export your leads in bulk.
Once you have exported your leads, you will have to scrub & store them in a private, accessible file or CRM. Two important things when storing lead information is that you organize the information in some way & maintain its security.
