Connecting LinkedIn Ads and Salesforce with Zapier

The first step to automate lead transfer from LinkedIn ad forms to Salesforce is by using Zapier, a powerful automation tool. Here's a detailed guide on how to get started:

1. Connect Your LinkedIn Account

  • Start by creating a new Zap in Zapier.
  • Choose LinkedIn as your trigger event. Specifically, look for "Every New Lead Form Response."
  • Connect your LinkedIn account by providing your login credentials.

2. Test the Trigger

  • If you're already running LinkedIn ads, you'll see your recent leads when you click on "Test Trigger." This data will give you an idea of how the information flows from LinkedIn to Zapier.

3. Prepare LinkedIn Ad Campaign

  • If your campaign is new, create it on LinkedIn, and then simulate a lead submission by filling in the form and clicking submit.

4. Find or Create Leads in Salesforce

  • Instead of directly creating a lead in Salesforce, it's better to find an existing lead by their email address. If not found, then create a new lead.
  • Map the necessary fields such as name, last name, email, title, and company from LinkedIn to Salesforce.
  • Check the box to create a lead if it doesn't exist in Salesforce.

5. Test the Integration

  • Test this step to ensure Salesforce is correctly handling the data. If everything is set up correctly, Zapier will create a new lead in Salesforce.

6. Optional: Add Leads to a Campaign

  • If you have campaigns set up in Salesforce, you can also add the new leads to a specific campaign.
That's it! You've successfully set up the integration between LinkedIn Ads and Salesforce using Zapier. Now, your lead generation process is more efficient and less time-consuming.
