A lead magnet is a valuable piece of content that can be ordered to gather lead information on your part. What you need to do is to set up a landing page on your website to feature an opt-in form that your target audience wants to fill in. This is where you will deliver content about your business through email.

The last step is to create the ad. The most effective Facebook ads these days are the video ads. Video ads can be used to preview the lead magnet. Add thought-provoking questions to the ad copy to build curiosity. Hook the reader and highlight the benefits of your lead magnet and, finally, close with a call-to-action line.

If your campaign is successful in adding more people to your email list, start monetizing. Send your subscribers content and offers that would make them paying customers. Run Facebook ads with your email marketing and match your email list on Facebook. Create a customer list or website custom audience. Website custom audience is best to choose because you do not have to keep up with the list. Facebook regularly updates these. After, you can build a website for a custom audience or people who have completed a conversion event on your website.
