How do I integrate Facebook Lead Ads with AWeber?

Facebook Lead Ads is a service through Facebook where you can seamlessly collect subscriber information via a Lead Ad form. Facebook Lead Ads allow you to rely less on web-based sign up forms, and easily grow your subscriber mailing list. When running a Lead Ad, Facebook will show the ad to subscribers likely to be interested in your business, based on the audiences you choose, so they can easily request to receive more information from you.

All submitted subscriber information from the Lead Ad form will be sent to you after the subscriber consents by tapping the "submit" button. With Facebook's policy, users are not allowed to share or sell subscriber information to anyone.

The integration of Facebook Lead Ads and AWeber is possible through Zapier. This integration allows you to have subscribers added to your AWeber mailing list when they sign up through your Facebook Lead Ad form. In this article, we will review how to integrate Facebook Lead Ads with AWeber though Zapier.
