Click Get Started: I recently started building Messenger ChatBots, aka “MessageBots,” on Facebook, because I see a great advantage to their use over email and more static Facebook presence for generating leads and delivering your message. It also appears that Facebook has invested in getting them in front of their users so that adds to the upside.
The best aspect to these are they are fully functional, but also still have a tremendous upside to grow as the platform continues to mature and the bot technology gets stronger.
What is a MessageBot? It’s best to see them in action. The easiest place to is to the top-right corner of my Rock ‘em Sock ’em Bots Facebook Page and click on SEND MESSAGE. The Chat window will open and once you click GET STARTED, the MessageBot will start the “conversation”.
Also, visit the MessageBot that I built for the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium.
A MessageBot Bonus is that once your Page achieves a consistent “responds instantly” level of response, the chat window will automatically open for all users — and it’s a magnet! Users respond at over 80% and this builds your messaging list.
