Step 5: Set-up an Action to Send Facebook Lead Ads Data to Gmail

Click over the plus button next to the trigger window.

Select the app to integrate as ‘JSON Extractor’, the method as ‘Extract JSON Data’ and strike the ‘Connect with JSON Extractor’ button.

Observe the JSON extraction response and you’ll see the data that was in JSON format in now available in plain text.

Note: As Pabbly Connect is upgrading very fast so it is possible that they there will be no use of an JSON extractor in future. So, observe the data in step 4 and if you found elements like [{” around your data then only follow step 5 otherwise, simply skip it.

Step 6: Send the Lead Data via Gmail

(a) Select the App to Integrate as Gmail

To send the leads data, we can use Gmail or any other email marketing service. Here, I’m using Gmail to send emails to the leads.

Firstly, click the’+’ button next to the JSON extractor window integration.

Select the app to integrate as Gmail from the drop-down. Check the method to be ‘Send an Email’ and hit the ‘Connect with Gmail’ button.

(b) Authorize the Gmail Account

Just like the Facebook account authorization, you have to authorize the Gmail account too. As all the emails would be sent to your Facebook leads through this account.

(c) Send Email to the Captured Leads

Once you authorize the Gmail account the system will ask you to fill out the email contents. Fill in the recipient’s name, recipients email, email subject & the email message. You can also use the data that you got from the API response such as the name, email etc.

When you are done with all the details, save & send a test request.
