What is Lead Generation in Messenger?

The Facebook Messenger Lead Adverts look the same as any other advert in the news feed or stories section on either Facebook or Instagram. Instead of opening up a lead form after being click on, you will be diverted to the Facebook Messenger app.

The questions are asked by live bot and depending on what you answer, the next question for the user can differ. The information that the user provides in the chat is stored as a lead in the same way that a lead form is stored.

Note: this is Facebook's own chatbot capability. You could also create your own custom chatbot using one of many chatbot tools - and still connect leads to Driftrock.
