Lead generation Meta Ads

We run lead generation Meta campaigns that ask for people’s contact details, like their email address or phone number.

When you get these contact details, you can either convert them into supporters straight away by calling them and asking for regular gift for example, or building a long-term relationship by sending a series of emails outlining your charity’s positive impact.

We can build Meta Ads campaigns for your charity aimed at users on Facebook, Instagram and the audience network. When they click on the ads, they send their email address or phone number to you via the Facebook platform.
