Hello everyone!

My first post here so I just wanted to say hello, I was also was curious to know if any of you have used Facebook Ads to generate leads?

After reading an article about this topic, we began testing back and forth and after spending a small budget we were able to generate almost 700 real estate leads from Facebook. We also used a Chatbot to qualify the leads automatically.

If any of you have used FB Ads, I'd love to know how you have incorporated it in your lead generation process.. have a amazing day!

- Alex

yeah Facebook is a good way to generate leads but you can also generate leads from google by advertising with google ad words.

Absolutely, we actually use both Facebook ads and Google Adwords. However, we get much lower cost per click on Facebook Ads than we do on Google Adwords. Have you experienced similar results?

My colleague actually wrote a case study about this, so if interested in learning more, feel free to read it smile

I've found that generating leads from facebook is easy. The hard part is converting them into clients. If you don't have a good system to plug these leads into they because useless.

Alex doesn't sell real estate. He is trying to sell his chat bot to us. Alex would not know a real estate lead if it hit him in the face.

I read the case study under his link above. It is kind of written like they are agents....and kind of written like they are software guys.

The blog hints at closings, but nothing concrete is offered.

At best, it is poorly written. At worst, it is deceptive.

So, Alex: are you an agent selling property using these techniques?

We weren't/aren't real estate agents so we didn't actually generated money from the closing of the sale. We sent those leads to local real estate agents. We had around 85-90% engagement rate, meaning that 90% of the time people interacted with the chatbot and maintained a conversation. As for the ROI on the marketing spend, I can tell you that with one closed [average$] buyer/seller you can generate a positive ROI (again the leads varied between buyer/sellers and renters, a lot of renters!). The point of this article was to show you the possibilities when you leverage messaging platforms where people are spending a lot of their time.

Thanks for your reply, Alex. I appreciate your taking the time to explain.

It can be meaningful to look at advertising costs in terms of fees generated.

For real estate agents, though, a perhaps more meaningful metric is to look at hours invested in getting a prospect to a signed agency relationship agreement(or whatever it is called in your jurisdiction). From my experience, most leads don't ever get to a signed agreement, but still use up time.

So, can you clarify how many of those 700 leads entered into an agreement with the agent to whom you referred them?
