New Facebook Advertising Automation Tool
What is ConnectAutomate?
ConnectAutomate is the latest addition to the suite of Connect.io apps created by Wilco de Kreij – all apps dedicated to improve your Facebook advertising results.
The Connect.io now consists of these 5 main applications:
- ConnectAudience to synchronize your CRM/Autoresponder into Facebook Custom Audiences.
- ConnectLeads to get/import Facebook Lead ads into your autoresponder.
- ConnectExplore to easily find the best Facebook Interests to target to.
- ConnectRetarget to easily run behavorial retargeting campaigns based upon people’s actions on your website.
- ConnectAutomate (the latest app where this review is all about)
Note: ConnectAutomate is a stand-alone application but if you have bought one or more of the other Connect.io apps, you’ll have them all in one central dashboard.
As I wrote reviews for the prior 4 apps (just click on the links above), now it’s time to review ConnectAutomate… So, let’s start…
ConnectAutomate is a new cloud-based platform to automatically filter and turn your best Facebook posts into high-converting Facebook advertising campaigns without doing manually all the boring/repeating ad creation, monitoring, and renewing tasks.
You only have to set up your filters/rules once, and the app automatically sets up, monitors, and updates your Facebook ad campaigns based upon Facebook Insight’s data.
To set up your campaign, just follow these 4 easy steps:
1. Boost Conditions
Here you select your Facebook Page, Post Type(s), Number of Posts to promote at once, set your filters, and select the timeframe.
What kind of posts can you use for your ads?
You can select any type of post. Text posts? Video Or images? No problem. You can filter out only the post types that you want.
But of course, you only want to use relevant ads. So, you can choose a timeframe, i.e. select the last x days period from when you want your posts to be tracked.
What kind of filters can you use?
You can filter on the number/percentage of:
- Post Likes
- Post Comments
- Post Shares
- Clickthrough Rate
- Share Rate
- Likes Rate
- Comments Rate
And you can just use one filter or multiple filters (AND feature).
2. Campaign Settings
Here you select your ad account, give your ad campaign a name (or decide to us an existing campaign), and set your ad objectives.
(You know the common Facebook objectives as optimized for Conversions, Page Likes, Post Engagement, Reach, Video Views etc.)
3. Adset Settings
Based upon your selected objective, you can now enter your ad settings as:
- Adset name (you can automatically add the name of the post to distinguish your ads)
- Duration: number of running days
- Target Audience where you can create a new one or use an existing audience.
- Optimization goal
Note: by creating a target audience (even if the filter doesn’t convert that post into an ad), you can select that audience later on for targeting purposes for other ads. This is a “hidden” feature that makes your targeting so much easier!
4. Rule Settings
Here you can give your rule settings a name (and save it for later usages) and decide whether you want to get an email alert once a new campaign has been triggered.
So, here you have it. Just enter these details once and let the app automatically create new FB ad campaigns based upon your triggers and only convert them most engaging posts into ads.
You still think that you can do this yourself and don’t need automation?
Well, just have a look at the steps you have to perform to do this yourself…
So far my description about the main app features. But if you want to see it in action, just watch Wilco’s introduction webinar to see all details…
Note: the actual demo of ConnectAutomate starts around the 50th minute.
What makes ConnectAutomate unique?
It’s the first and only application that allows you to automate the process of “boosting” engaging Facebook posts into a high-converting ad targeted to the right audience(s) without using the auto boost feature but by automatically using Facebook’s Ad Manager plus Facebook’s Insights combined with pre-set rules and filters to optimize your ads for the best conversions.
So, it saves you lots of ad monitoring and ad creation time that you otherwise had to do manually. Also as it automates the process of converting posts into ads, you never have to miss an opportunity to “boost” your posts (on time) when it goes viral or has lots of engagement.
Furthermore, ConnectAutomate allows you to build custom audiences for every post you create (and did set up an automated campaign for). Even if that post didn’t trigger the rules to convert it into an ad, the audiences reached can still be very relevant for other ads in the future.
(Other) Main features of ConnectAutomate:
- Cloud-based. Hence you can get access on both Mac and PC, and on any device with internet connection.
- Effective Menu and User Interface. This software is super easy to use, no experience needed.
- Unlimited Facebook Pages with simple FB integration.
- Unlimited Set & Forget Boost Post Rules.
- Auto-optimize towards your conversions. The algorithm monitors the results of your posts and your ads, and makes necessary changes to get maximum conversions.
- Auto-Log. (A history of every rule you created and how it performed)
- Auto-Targeting. Fully optimized for your desired results (conversions, sales, or engagement).
- Auto-Update via e-mail updates when specific rules are triggered.
- Easy to understand video tutorials.
- Fully integrated with Facebook’s Ad API and fully compliant with Facebook TOS.
Are there any shortcomings?
Not really, this is a great piece of software. It’s the only tool on the market right that can fully automate and convert engaging posts into ads.

In all these cases, Wilco was the first who came to the market with new never seen before options for Facebook Marketers and Advertisers.
