If you want to automate Facebook Marketing, an automated Messenger Bot can help. A Bot is basically a program or software program that can be set up to respond to specific queries by a human. You can set up a Bot for your business to send out updates, to chat with customers and prospects, and to follow up with leads that come in via Facebook.
To use a Facebook Messenger Bot you don't need to be an expert at Facebook. The bot will function as if it was you. Here are a few steps to get you started.
Create a profile on Facebook. The Bot is programmed to access the Facebook Messenger service to communicate with the user. Once the Bot has been set up, you will be given the option to choose what type of profile you want to use. You may choose a personal profile, a fan page, or a business profile.
Create an invitation to a Bot to chat with your fans, Facebook friends, or potential customers. To invite a bot to chat with your followers on Facebook, you need to create a page, then invite the bot. On your page, paste the link of the Bot that you want to chat with, or click on the icon that says "chat" near the navigation bar on the top right of the page.
Set up the Bot for Chat. From the page where you invite the Bot, select the button that says "Chat". To get the Bot set up, you must first open a chat session.
From there, you will be asked to sign in to your account with the password you used when you created the bot. When you do this, you will be in a chat session. Choose "Send Message" from the drop down menu. This is the only action that needs to be done during the chat session, so you can choose this to make things simpler.
Once you've got the Bot set up, you'll receive a message in your inbox. This is the Bot sending you a message from the service. It will say "Hello! ", or something to that effect.
Send the Bot a message. As you are chatting with the Bot, hit the tab key on your keyboard, then choose "Messages". The Message tab has several different types of messages available.
Choose the type of message you'd like to send. Pick the kind of message you'd like to send, which is typically displayed in your chat window, and click on the "Message" button. Select "Begin Message" from the popup menu. Hit the space bar to begin the message.
Once you've begun the chat session, wait for it to end. Then, simply close the tab and hit the back button on your keyboard. Then repeat the process for the other type of message. The messaging interface for your Facebook Messenger Bot looks a lot like Facebook itself.
Bots are a great way to automate the Facebook marketing process. They provide an automated way to update the Facebook audience about your business. Bots also help to ensure that you get a return customer.
While bots can be very useful for those who need them, be sure to learn all you can about the business before you choose a Bot to automate your Facebook marketing. Be sure to get the proper training to ensure that you can run your Facebook business smoothly.
