Message from Larry Kim, Founder & CEO

I started MobileMonkey because businesses have leads but nobody knows what to do with them. It’s hard to know which of the leads are qualified and which are interested in buying right now. As a result, businesses are not extracting the full value of their marketing efforts. MobileMonkey automatically follows up on every lead from every source, leaving no stone unturned. This is work that sales people typically do but just don’t have the time or the dependability to do on a consistent basis. Sales outreach is the most broken, clunky, manual, time consuming, yet most leveraged piece of the sales and marketing funnel. If you want to grow your revenues, you really need to focus here. Let MobileMonkey free up the time needed to figure out who to talk to so you can focus on closing — what you do best.

Sales outreach automation is still relatively new, and this course not only goes through how to physically set them up, but also how and why you would even use them in the first place. There really are so many different use-cases for this type of marketing, and I really didn't understand the full potential here until I went through the course.

David B.

A few weeks ago, I set my monkey to the task of helping me sell tiny homes for a client. Flipping the switch on FB ads to generate leads through Messenger and follow-up with sales outreach automation started with cautious optimism. But, oh boy, did it pay off!

Within the first 24 hours, there were a dozen new leads. And by day 3, four of them had initial sales calls about purchasing a tiny home.

Messenger for sales outreach automation might sound like a strange channel for selling a home (or life insurance or health coaching or any number of other products or services)…

But if you follow the rule “connect with your audience wherever they hang out online,” then MobileMonkey is an obvious choice.

Kenny H.

Engagement rates are unbelievable and I love Instagram and Facebook comment guards for lead gen and website visitor leads for just pennies! In our efforts leads are $15-20 but with MobileMonkey it’s a fraction of the price.

MobileMonkey allowed us to automate responses to a lot of the sales inquiries, answering questions while we were asleep here in New York. By the time we woke up, we would already have $5,000-$7,000 in revenue simply because people targeted in other time zones found the answers to their questions and hit the “BUY” button.

FAQs ON SALES OUTREACH AUTOMATION

OmniChat is MobileMonkey’s patent pending technology that allows marketers to write automated chat marketing conversations that work across multiple chat apps.

Chat marketers write automated chat conversations designed to answer user questions while helping the business sell their products and services. You may be familiar with email drip campaigns and email blast automations. Similarly, common chat marketing campaigns include chat drip campaigns and chat blasts. 

OmniChat translates chat marketing campaigns to all the messaging apps customers and leads already use. Chat blasts and drip campaigns can be executed in SMS/MMS (text message) and Facebook Messenger simultaneously.

Whether a customer or lead messages a businesses Facebook business page, website chat or SMS opt-in, that user will engage in the automated conversation funnel (i.e. chat marketing campaign) designed to educate and nurture their relationship with the business.

OmniChat features a multi-channel chat inbox with advanced customer care features including:

✓ Conversations from Facebook Messenger, SMS and native web chat in a unified inbox

 

✓ Automated notifications of conversations that need follow up

 

✓ Ability to assign live agents to customer inquiries

✓ Ability to tag contacts to add them to audiences for follow-up chat automation campaigns


OmniChat features StartBots, conversation dialogues that can be launched on multiple channels, managed from the OmniChat all-in-one inbox where they can be seen and responded to from one place — no matter what messaging platform they originate from.

OmniChat by MobileMonkey allows you to consolidate SMS, Messenger, and Web Chat all in one place. The foundation of OmniChat is a unified inbox that merges customer communications across messaging apps in one place.

Another key to OmniChat effectiveness is a multiplatform chatbot builder called StartBots. StartBots allow you to write content once and use it on every platform.

With StartBots, it’s easier than ever to create conversational flows that lead the user to a conclusion while collecting user data and saving responses to various attributes.

The conversations created using StartBots will work the same no matter what platform they are accessed from: Facebook Messenger, Web Chat, or SMS.

Using OmniChat, a business can install a website chatbot widget that connects to both Facebook Messenger and native web chat.

When given a choice between email, phone and chat, more people choose chat for customer service and to get quick answers to their questions.

With embedded chat on a website, a business can leverage benefits including:

✓ Increase conversion rates up to 45%
✓ 24/7 instant customer service response
✓ Instant answers to customer questions using chatbots
✓ Service customers with no wait time
✓ Reduce costs through automation
✓ Reduce staffing costs
✓ Provide a mobile-friendly user experience
✓ Create lasting contacts

OmniChat website widgets are always mobile-friendly and adapts to whether site visitors are signed into Facebook Messenger or not. If a site visitor is not signed in to Facebook Messenger, the OmniChat website chat widget will display native web chat. If the site visitor is signed in to Facebook Messenger, the website chat widget will display as Messenger chat.

This way, customers have options that make sense for them to communicate with businesses. And businesses only need to create one website chat widget that services site visitors in the messaging channel that makes sense.

Short message service (SMS) marketing uses text messages to increase customer engagement and sales.

SMS marketing is an effective way to promote your brand or products to an audience who regularly communicates with others using their smartphones (in other words, basically everyone).

An SMS campaign could include coupon offers to reward loyal customers or bring new customers into the store.

Marketers can use SMS marketing to promote contests in an effort to gain new leads and increase customer loyalty.

Businesses can also send out SMS polls to learn about customers and their preferences, and tailor future communications according to their interests.

Businesses can also promote sales or events through SMS messages.

Text messaging is the fastest way to communicate with customers on a personal level. SMS chatbots make it easier to engage with your audience in order to drive customer loyalty and sales.

With the majority of consumers already using SMS, marketers that integrate chat bots as intelligent assistants and automation can provide consumers with effortless and seamless personal assistance at their fingertips.

Many consumers are familiar with text messages from their service providers. Additionally, brands can use texting for more immediate sales-related offers such as vouchers, discounts, promotions and even personalized birthday messages.

Nearly every type of industry uses SMS marketing to some degree. The top 10 industries using SMS marketing include:

  • Retail
  • Restaurants and Hotels
  • Real Estate
  • Finance
  • Travel Industry
  • Healthcare Industry
  • Nonprofit
  • Organizations
  • Recruiting Agencies and HR
  • Salons
  • Insurance Agencies

Various sources report SMS open and response rates as high as 98% and 45%, respectively. Email open and response rates, on the other hand, are 20% and 6 percent. And, on average, it takes 90 seconds for someone to respond to a text, and 90 minutes to respond to an email.

In recent surveys, 75% of people have suggested that they would be happy to receive an offer via SMS. 65% of marketers say that SMS marketing is an effective method. 85% of adults check their emails on a daily basis, and about 81% of American adults use SMS each day.

SMS is more popular among younger generations. 18- to 24-year-olds receive and send an average of 128 texts per day, compared to just 16 for those aged 55 and over.

There are a number of instances where SMS marketing will help maximize your ROI, including when you’re sending out:

  • Deals and coupons
  • Meaningful content that’s straight to the point
  • Information to keep customers in the loop
  • Personal alerts, e.g. notifications and account updates
  • Quick access to important information
  • Information to customers who don’t want to visit apps or websites

When a business of any size, from small to enterprise, begins using SMS as a customer communication channel, they are likely going to require mass messaging and scale capabilities. This is where automation come into SMS communication with customers.

Of course, there are small businesses that text with customers one-on-one. It’s not uncommon for office administrators to send out text reminders to that week’s appointments.

But as soon as you want to send scale messages — including order updates, appointment reminders — or message everyone on your list about a special sale, then you’re looking to SMS automation to do the work.

Can SMS automation have back and forth conversations with customers over text? Yes, to the degree that you program the conversation. We recommend providing a decision tree for the SMS recipient, such as “type ‘1’ for yes”.

Give SMS subscribers a clear call-to-action for the appropriate response in the text conversation.

SMS marketing campaign analytics are readily trackable within MobileMonkey chatbot analytics. Identifying customers engaging via text message and monitoring delivery rates are all possible with MobileMonkey OmniChat tools. By using these analytics, businesses can create further targeted campaigns and continually build a better understanding of their mobile database. 

Additionally, campaign success may also be measured by the number of coupon code redemptions for promotions. You may also review the average order value of customers redeeming SMS promotions to measure campaign effectiveness.

SMS is also a great channel to get feedback from your customers via surveys. Research shows that on average 31% of consumers will respond to a survey via SMS with the average response time for users being just over 5 minutes.

By profiling and segmenting out numbers that are least likely to respond by SMS, they save money and improve ROI when engaging with those customers via other marketing channels. 

Facebook Messenger marketing is the use of Facebook Messenger chat as a communication channel with prospective customers. Facebook Messenger marketing is a lot like email marketing. Except instead of using email to send promotions and drip campaigns, it’s all done using Facebook Messenger and largely with Facebook Messenger chatbots. 

Everything that’s possible with email is also possible with Facebook Messenger marketing. Except when you use Facebook Messenger, you can do a lot more with email, and you can do it faster. Plus, the engagement rates are far higher than normal email engagement rates. 

Facebook messenger marketing with chatbots provide enormous power for marketers. In fact, MobileMonkey enables businesses to build a free chatbot that is interactive, meaning that the Messenger bot can ask questions, get information, segment customer types, and get a wide variety of information from the customer. 

The concept behind Facebook Messenger marketing is simple — it’s a marketing channel that uses Facebook Messenger. And the applications are immense and promise a huge new opportunity for marketers in any industry. 

Messenger marketing chatbot services are the biggest marketing channel that has opened up in the past ten years. We predict that it will remain the hottest channel for the next decade or longer. 

Early adopters — those who tend to pick up on new technology quickly — will be the ones who benefit the most from Facebook messenger bots. By 2020, 85% of customer-business communication will not require any human communication from the business. Messenger marketing allows marketers to stay ahead of the curve and gain the most value right now. 

The primary benefit of using Facebook Messenger marketing is that it allows you to reach a large number of potential customers at scale on a personal messaging platform. Messenger apps are one of the largest marketing channels and they have the highest effectiveness rates.

To maximize the impact of Facebook Messenger marketing it’s essential to use Facebook Messenger chatbots. Chatbots allow you to execute and automate marketing tactics such as drip campaignschat blastssurveys, and customer service functions. A single Messenger bot or chat blast takes a few minutes to make, but can reach tens of thousands of people individually. 

Beyond reaching customers at scale, Facebook Messenger marketing has very high click through and engagement rates — 10x to 80x better than conventional Facebook display ads or email marketing

MobileMonkey is the premier platform for running your Facebook Messenger marketing efforts. MobileMonkey has dozens of different Messenger tools and tactics. It allows you to collect Messenger contacts, send messages, create drip campaigns, and perform hundreds of other marketing tactics. All of these efforts are powered by chatbots, which can be created and deployed without coding. 

Nearly every type of industry and vertical is using Facebook Messenger marketing to some degree. The functionality of Messenger marketing is useful for any type of business — B2C, B2B, selling products or service.

Increasingly, many influencers are also using Facebook Messenger marketing with chatbots. By creating a Facebook Business page, influencers integrate Messenger bot functionality, build chatbots, and reach fans at an unprecedented scale. 

The top twenty industries using MobileMonkey chat bots are as follows:

  • Product/Service
  • Consulting Agency
  • Real Estate Agent
  • Community
  • Public Figure
  • Education
  • Entrepreneur
  • Website
  • Health/Beauty
  • Advertising/Marketing
  • Clothing (Brand)
  • Shopping & Retail
  • Marketing Agency
  • Internet Marketing Service
  • Internet Company
  • Business Service
  • Social Media Agency
  • Nonprofit Organization
  • Advertising Agency

MobileMonkey has a library of Facebook Messenger chatbot templates for a wide variety of industries. Check it out, to find out how chatbots can work in many different ways and for a wide variety of businesses.

Facebook Messenger automation allows you to achieve massive scale. If you were to attempt to reach out and reply to all your customers on Facebook Messenger individually, it would be impossible.

You can send Messenger automated messages at scale to thousands of recipients at once, and automatically reply to each inquiry

Facebook Messenger automation also has high read rates and click through rates, much higher than email alone or conventional Facebook ads.

These are the average read and open rates of MobileMonkey users:

  • Average read rate in Facebook Messenger: 80
  • Average click-through rate in Facebook Messenger: 20%

MobileMonkey users who send chat blasts get these rates in the first sixty minutes of launching a Messenger campaign. When compared with email marketing alone, Facebook Messenger marketing as part of sales outreach automation is far more effective.

Facebook subscription messaging is a tool provided through Facebook that allows businesses to send regular messages to people on their contact list. It’s called subscription messaging, because the recipient agrees to be subscribed to the Facebook Business page that is sending the message.

Business Pages must apply for subscription messaging from their page settings and receive manual approval from Facebook. Once approved, business are allowed to send non-promotional messages to their subscribers.

Facebook Messenger ads are native Facebook ads that have “Send Message” as the call to action. They look just like conventional Facebook ads, but when users click through, they are invited to send a message and join your Messenger contact list. Typically, this launches a Facebook Messenger bot sequence with the new contact that helps to drive conversions.

It might be better to ask what can a Facebook Messenger automation not do? The easy answer is Facebook Messenger automation can do a whole lot. But a more thorough answer is as follows:

Broadly, Facebook Messenger automation can do these things:

  • Grow your contact list
  • Segment users according to type/interest/size, etc.
  • Replace a large portion of customer service requests and inquiries
  • Interact with customers using in an instant and interactive one-on-one platform
  • Onboard customers
  • Lead nurturing
  • And a whole lot more…

Specifically, Facebook Messenger automation can do these things:

  • Change a reservation or flight time – Sure, we can change your flight time. You prefer the 12p flight 1981 from ATL to LGA?
  • Check a reservation status – Yes, we still have the Queen Anne penthouse suite reserved for you on Saturday. Check-in time is at 3 pm.
  • Get weather updates – “Do I need to bring an umbrella?” “Yes, you’ll want to bring it with you to work today. There’s a 75% chance of scattered showers through 10 pm tonight.”
  • Send order confirmation — Your order is confirmed! Delivery time is 2-4 business days.
  • Provide order updates — Your order is out for delivery and will arrive by 8pm
  • Find specific products — Let’s find the right lipstick color for you. How would you describe your complexion?
  • Track purchase history – Here’s a complete list of your purchases over the last 90 days.
  • Ping customers on their birthday – Hey, we wanted to wish you a happy birthday! How about choosing a getaway for just you and someone special this month?
  • Order a pizza – Yep, we’ll get that in the oven. One 15” supreme headed your way — 1280 Lakeshore Drive, Apt B3. See you at 5:15 pm!
  • Surveys — What do you think about the state of hot air balloon racing today? Want to take our two-minute survey?
  • Customer segmentation — Are you an agency or solopreneur? What’s your MRR? What’s your AOV?
  • Schedule real estate showings — Sounds like you want to take a look at our rental located at 18 North Ave. What time works for you over the next seven days?
  • Select a meeting time — Melissa would be happy to schedule a free, live online consultation. Select from the following times.

MobileMonkey is the premier chatbot builder with the most powerful and advanced features available for absolutely free. We’ve found very few platforms that offer robust chatbot technology for no cost. Some of the platforms do have free plans, but limit the user to just a few minor things.

MobileMonkey’s free tier is specifically designed to help marketers, regardless of their budget, tap into the power of Facebook Messenger marketing with chatbots.

To set up a Facebook Messenger automation, simply select a Facebook Messenger automation builder. There are many options to choose from. Some, like MobileMonkey, do not require any coding. Once you’ve selected a chatbot automation, you will connect it to your Facebook Business page. After that, you’re ready to create your first Messenger automation.

You can automate Facebook Messenger marketing by using Messenger bots. To use bots, simply create a MobileMonkey account, connect your Facebook Business page, and you’re set. Automating Facebook Messenger is one of the most powerful marketing moves that a modern business can make. MobileMonkey makes this process simple, fast, straightforward, and at a very low cost.

Yes. Most customers today prefer messaging businesses, as opposed to calling or emailing them. Most businesses have taken heed, and are using some form of live chat to service their customers.

The only way to deliver ultra-fast and scalable response times on the messaging platform where your customers are most likely to interact is by creating a chatbot. Man businesses choose to create an automatic Facebook Messenger responder. When the customer clicks “Send Message,” the page automatically responds by acknowledging the inquiry.

The superior method of responding to your customer is with an entire bot sequence. A sequence will lead customers through a logical chain of events, much the same way that a telephone menu provides a series of options that a customer can work through to receive the help or answers they need.

Facebook Messenger is an app that allows users to exchange messages, similar to text messaging, using an online connection. Messenger chat is only one component of Facebook Messenger. Users can have voice calls, video calls, group voice/video calls, use photo filters, send attachments, voice messages, and a wide variety of other features.

Facebook Messenger chatbots expand this functionality by allowing users to answer questions and surveys, sign up for events, secure tickets, get shipping updates, and a lot of other helpful information.

Your Business Page will not get banned. However, you can have your page messaging capabilities limited or suspended if you abuse Messenger and get tons of complaints. Even if your Business Page’s use of Messenger is banned, that doesn’t impact other facebook marketing channels like your Page, Facebook group, Facebook ads, Instagram, etc.

The most common reason for a Facebook Page being restricted from some Messenger capabilities is when a lot of people start blocking your Messenger bot. If this happens, your Page will receive a message from Facebook that reads like this:

Limits have been placed on [Facebook Business Page name]
This page is restricted from the use of message tags, subscription and broadcast messaging, and sponsored messages. Your page will still be able to respond to messages according to standard messaging permissions.

To get the ban lifted, you’ll need to write a request to Facebook. It can take them a long time to respond, since Facebook Messenger bans are administered and reviewed manually (at the time of writing.)See here for a complete story on a Facebook Business Page that received one of these limits, and what was done about it.

Again, there is no chance of your page getting banned from Facebook due to Messenger violations. The limitations come in the form of Messenger capabilities (usually message tags, subscription and broadcast messaging, and sponsored messages).

The reason why a page receives this penalty is typically due to high block rates. If users are blocking your page, this signals to Facebook that you’re doing something with Messenger that is annoying your users.

Please note that MobileMonkey does not ban pages or restrict Messenger functionality. MobileMonkey is a verified Facebook partner, but does not impose limits or restrictions on Business Pages. These are set by Facebook.

There are three possible reasons:

  1. The user doesn’t know how to unsubscribe from receiving messages, so they choose the block option.
  2. You are sending messages too frequently.
  3. Users do not like the content of your messages.

To avoid being banned on Facebook Messenger, keep a close eye on your block rate. If this begins to increase, try to determine why it might be the case.

The block rate in Facebook Messenger is the percentage of people who choose to block your chatbot in order to discontinue receiving your Messenger messages.

  • The average block rate is 1-2%. A few people are always going to block you, regardless of what you do. 
  • When your block rate creeps to 3-5%, you’ll want to be careful and adjust whatever you’re doing that may be causing those block rates to increase. 
  • Anything above 5% is a cause for concern. 

Although there is no “official” percentage at which Facebook will ban your page on Messenger, our studies show that Pages are at risk of being banned when block rates hit 8%.

From your Facebook Business page, click “Insights,” then “Messages.” Your block rate will appear as a percentage number at the top of the page next to the number of messaging connections you have.

When you start using Facebook Messenger marketing and Facebook Messenger chatbots specifically, you’ll want to check this number on a weekly basis to make sure that your block rates are staying below 3%.

Be sure to toggle the dates to understand how your block rates average out over a weekly, monthly, and quarterly basis. Weekly fluctuations above 3% might happen, especially if you’ve engaged in an aggressive chatbot marketing effort, but if it stays above that rate for a longer period of time, you should make adjustments.

The most important thing to do is provide your users with a clear unsubscribe message anytime you start sending a bot sequence. The first thing you should say in any sequence is “Reply with STOP to unsubscribe.”

This advice applies to users you are inviting to your Messenger contact list for the first time and recipients that are accustomed to receiving your messages. Offering unsubscribe instructions creates an easy way for users to opt out without resorting to blocking you. Plus, it provides a sense of safety, knowing they have a recourse to withdraw from the message sequence if they want to.

Here are some additional tips for reducing the likelihood of your page being blocked:

  • Moderate the pace of your Messenger bots. Sending a dozen or so messages in a few minutes time is probably too many for most users.
  • Monitor the tone of your messages. Anything strident or annoying will probably result in a few blocks.
  • Schedule messages at times that are convenient for your users (not 2 in the morning).
  • Always provide clear instructions on how to unsubscribe from the Messenger sequence.

Each of these capabilities is supported in MobileMonkey, and are easy to implement in any Facebook Messenger chatbot.

Yes. You can use Instagram messaging automation today and soon, according to indications from Meta, you should be able to use automation on Whatsapp.

No. Facebook Messenger automation only works with business pages. It’s easy to set up a Facebook Business page, and you can use your Business Page for a lot of different purposes — even as your own personal brand page. Once you have a Facebook Business Page, you can do as many things with Messenger autotmation as you want.

Outreach automation is a computer program that can interact with humans to provide sales engagement services that were traditionally handled by human sales development reps. In reality, outreach automation do far more than just chat with humans. The most effective outreach automations in use today can effectively replace hundreds of thousands of hours of time that would be required to interact individually with prospects manually.

The best sales outreach service for websites make the interaction easy, fast, and automated, and persistently on multiple devices. Many websites use integrated chat automation, but the conversation lives and dies on the website. MobileMonkey allows people to become a contact in perpetuity, and keeps the conversation going indefinitely via re-engagement channels SMS and email. It’s easy to install a sales chat widget on a website using the WordPress plugin, WP-Chat.

Yes. A large percentage of MobileMonkey customers are agencies. There are two reasons why agencies are such heavy MobileMonkey users. First, agencies deploy sales outreach automation to acquire and retain customers for themselves. Second, agencies offer sales outreach automation services to their clients, which adds value to the client and revenue for the agency.

MobileMonkey offers special agency rates and frequent discounts (up to 50%) for agencies.  Contacts are aggregated across all the agency’s client accounts.

Agency accounts with MobileMonkey also receive multiple access levels for admins or contributors, client logins for collaboration, and a team dashboard that ties it all together in a cohesive way.

Sales outreach automation is a powerful revenue-generating tool for agencies. An agency can sell sales outreach services to their clients. For an agency to do this, it should purchase the agency plan from MobileMonkey, which allows an agency to create an unlimited number of automations across multiple client accounts.

When creating sales outreach automation, the agency can collaborate agency-wide on projects or even invite the client to participate in the outreach process. It’s easy to transfer ownership of the automation from the agency to the client at any point.

Agencies can include sales outreach automation as part of their service offering to client, which can add one-time development fees and monthly retainer fees.

As marketing trends go, chatbots aren’t new, but Messenger bots have only recently become easy to make. Anyone in the digital marketing industry understands that technologies, platforms, innovations, and trends rise and fall rapidly.

Chatbots are one of the most fluctuation trends on the market. Some chatbots companies rise and then fold within just a few months. When it comes to Messenger bots, Facebook is adding new capabilities and features on a regular basis.

Plus, chatbot developers themselves are making the process of creating a chatbot easier than ever.

All of this information hasn’t become widespread, meaning that many marketing teams just aren’t aware about how easy it is to have a chatbot up and running.

Creating chatbots requires no coding skills whatsoever. If you’re able to think, click, and read, then you’ll be able to make a chatbot. You can create long, complex, and even NLP (natural language processing) chatbots without touching a line of code.

Naturally, creating chatbots does take some time. And, since some bot sequences are complex, building them will require careful thinking and planning. But at the same time, you won’t have to learn a new skill like coding.

Good news: MobileMonkey is free. And we don’t mean “free” like, “Oh, but you’ll have to pay for every truly useful functionality.” No, we mean free as in you can build and deploy an unlimited number of powerful chatbots for websites, Facebook ads, bulk messaging, on an unlimited number of Facebook pages. Forever.

Marketing software is big business. One popular software helps to track rankings and provide search engine data. If you’re an agency, buying the software will set you back a thousand bucks a month!

Now, compare that price point with this: $0.00 for an entirely new and robust marketing channel that has a reach of more than 1.3 billion people all over the planet, in every industry. As long as you select the right chatbot builder, then no, chatbot software is not too expensive.

You can create a complete Messenger bot in less than one minute. MobileMonkey has a complete library of pre-built Messenger bot templates for many industries such as agencies, realtors, ecommerce, podcasts, doctor’s offices, and real estate. When you use and customize these templates, you can have an entire beginning-to-end marketing cycle created for your business.

With chatbots, interacting with customers is seamless and fully automated.

What would previously take hundreds of hours requires only the time required to set up a chatbot. (And setting up a chatbot doesn’t take much time at all.)

In the old days, yes, this would be 100% true. In the past, in order to see the messages that your customers sent you, you had to dig through the labyrinthine Facebook Business page to see a whole bunch of messages (DOP! How did I miss them?) that customer had sent you when the click on the “Message” button on your website.

One of the reasons why marketers love chatbots is because it is one of the few methods that allows marketers to engage on a personal level at scale with hundreds or thousands of contacts.

Chatbots are capable of executing thousands of tasks, from the mundane (ordering pizza) to the magical (finding the love of their life). The sheer potential of Messenger bots is mind-boggling, and that fact alone may cause some people to shy away from trying to use them.

There are hundreds of possibilities, but here are highlighted some of the top Facebook chatbot strategies that MobileMonkey users are doing every day.

  • Comment guard – Connect a Messenger bot to an organic Facebook post. Everyone who comments on the post is automatically invited to join your Facebook Messenger contact list. Boost the organic post to gain exponentially more contacts!
  • Chat blasting – Send a Messenger chat to a select group of contacts or a huge group of contacts, all at once. The open rates average from 50-80%, and the response rates blow email out of the water.
  • Click to messenger ad – It’s like a Facebook ad, except instead of driving CTRs to a landing page, you add contacts to Facebook Messenger where you can launch a drip campaign, segment them, and remarket them for life.
  • Chat widget – Pop this little plugin on any page of your website, and bam, you have an instant way to gain massive amounts of Facebook Messenger contacts. If you have WordPress, the plugin is an absolute breeze to set up.

MobileMonkey is an ideal alternative to Chatfuel. Some marketers find Chatfuel difficult to use. The free plan offered by Chatfuel has such limited functionality that it makes it difficult to determine if moving to a paid plan is a good idea. Using MobileMonkey allows you to explore a vast array of Messenger bot techniques and tactics without having to spend any money. 

MobileMonkey is an alternative to ManyChat. Other chatbot builders and platforms are available, but MobileMonkey is the fastest-growing chatbot builder with the highest number of features and functionality. Its price point (free) makes it a price-sensitive entrypoint to Facebook Messenger marketing with chatbots. 

MobileMonkey has industry-leading integration with WordPress, advanced AI for natural language processing (NLP), a seamless easy-to-use interface, higher value for the price point, few to no bugs, fast response time, advanced features, and greater platform stability than other chatbot platforms. 

You can create chatbots are part of your marketing services to clients. First, understand your client’s goals and needs, then pitch a Facebook chatbot as a solution. You can charge an upfront fee for the development of the chatbot and an ongoing fee for management and subscription fees (if required). 

Messenger bots are one of the fastest-growing and highest-ROI marketing channels available today, so it’s a smart move to begin offering them as part of your agency or freelance marketing services. 

The best way to create a Messenger bot is to select a Facebook Messenger chatbot platform that makes it easy to create a bot (no coding required). Once you select your chatbot builder, connect it to your Facebook Business account. From that point, you can determine what kind of chatbot you want to create, and walk through the required steps in the chatbot building app. 

The best Facebook Messenger bots as determined by success rate, often have similar characteristics. Upon analyzing thousands of successful chatbots created in MobileMonkey, the best Facebook Messenger bots have these similarities:

  • Clear subscribe and unsubscribe instructions
  • Easy to answer questions
  • Multiple choice answers
  • Use of gifs and images
  • A short, punchy, and personal style
  • Easy instructions for returning to a main menu or getting answers to a question
  • The ability to respond to a variety of user inputs, even if it’s “Sorry, I’m just a bot.”
  • The ability to switch to a live operator if necessary

Customers actually enjoy interacting with bots, especially when the bots have been developed carefully and with the user in mind.

It doesn’t cost anything to build a chatbot. MobileMonkey is free, and you can create as many bots as you want without spending a dime. Some chatbot builders do have costs involved ranging from a few dollars a month to thousands of dollars in initial setup fees and ongoing maintenance. If you’re just getting started with chatbots, it is best to select a Facebook Messenger chatbot builder like MobileMonkey for its low to no cost and ease-of-use. 

The only technology you need to create a chatbot is your Facebook page, a chatbot builder, and your brain, if brains can be called a technology. Chatbots, especially Facebook bots, have become so commonplace that any marketer regardless of skill level or budget can create a chatbot within minutes. Facebook Messenger chatbots are the best place to start. 

To create a chatbot with little or no coding, find a chatbot builder that allows this. MobileMonkey is one of them and there are dozens of alternatives. MobileMonkey is specifically designed for Facebook Messenger marketing, so the tools and tactics involved in MobileMonkey chatbots will give you huge advantages.

There are dozens of free chatbots for Facebook available on the major chatbot builders. For example, on MobileMonkey, you can create a free chatbot called a “chat blast” that sends your message to thousands of your subscribers simultaneously. Most quality Messenger bot building platforms offer free chatbots as part of their service.

MobileMonkey is the ideal platform for customer-support related issues. MobileMonkey allows you to create automated sequences that answer questions and walk customers through common issues. In addition, MobileMonkey has a Live Operator handoff feature that will send a customer to a human responder who can help address their issue. 

You can create a bot that answers real world questions by carefully programming the bot over time. The Q&A feature on MobileMonkey allows you to develop such a chatbot using a system of trigger words and words to ignore. Although setting up such a bot does require some work, you can do so without coding. 

If you want to go the route of coding your own chatbot, there are several open source chatbots platforms available:

  • Botpress
  • Microsoft Bot Framework
  • Rasa Stack

If you’re looking for an easy-to-use chatbot builder, your best bet is to stick with someone like MobileMonkey, since it’s free and doesn’t require any coding.

A solid real estate chatbot template is available for free here. Go ahead, test it out. This template, available on MobileMonkey is versatile, because it automates and streamlines many of the tasks that realtors need to carry out on a regular basis — viewing listings, scheduling showings, etc. The bot automatically segments users according to buyers, sellers, and renters, so you can find out how to best serve potential clients. 

The major players in Chatbot change on a regular basis. Because the technology is new and the startup scene is constantly shifting, it’s hard to make a list that lasts for very long. At the time of this writing, here are some major Facebook chatbot companies:

  • WP-Chatbot, a powerful and easy-to-use Facebook Messenger plugin for WordPress
  • ChattyPeople, a robust Messenger marketing platform that makes bot Facebook bot creation a breeze
  • MobileMonkey – For the most value for the lowest price (free) MobileMonkey is the solution. It’s trusted by marketers like Neil Patel and Brian Dean

To build a chatbot from scratch, you can either develop it by yourself using a development framework, or you can create a chatbot code-free using an existing chatbot builder like MobileMonkey. 

The easiest way to build a Messenger chatbot is to select a Facebook Messenger chatbot builder — software that allows you to create questions, answers, options, and other things to connect with your audience. MobileMonkey makes it extremely fast and easy to build a Messenger chatbot. Since most chatbots follow the same flow, all you need to do is open the chatbot builder, customize it with your specific verbiage, and flip it on.

Yes. The most popular way to add Messenger chatbots to a website is to add an unobtrusive persistent widget to each page. You can customize the look and position, but usually the widget lives in the lower right hand corner of the website. You can set these up by using the WordPress plugin, WP-Chatbot.

You can use Messenger chatbots to view styles, browse products, process orders, provide shipping updates, and answer common questions. Messenger chatbots on ecommerce websites can function as de facto fashion consultants, helping a customer understand exactly what size, color, or style, they may want to purchase. Once the customer has purchased, Messenger chatbots can assist all the way through to delivery (or returns) of the product with order confirmations, shipping updates, and other information. 

This template is just an example, but you can test the kind of plug-and-play chatbots for an ecommerce website here.

Messenger chatbots are a targeted and effective lead generation technique. MobileMonkey has acquired tens of thousands of leads using this chatbot, and our clients have gained hundreds of thousands more. 

Lead generation chatbots typically provide free offers or information, and drive the customer through a sequence of qualifying questions, often ending with a free consultation or invitation to join a Facebook group.

The great thing about using Messenger bots for lead generation is that you can segment your audience. Using segmentation features such as budget, size, interest, etc., means that your marketing efforts will be highly successful. 

Yes. It’s called Facebook post autoresponder, or in MobileMonkey’s terminology, a Comment Guard. The technique itself is easy to set up and execute. (MobileMonkey has done most of the work for you.) 

Basically, how it works is this. You create a normal organic post in Facebook. When people comment, it automatically invites them to become a Messenger contact.

Rather than rack up meaningless likes, you’re actually gaining valuable leads from posts like these. Depending on how appealing the organic post is, you can gain dozens or even hundreds of Messenger leads, as I’ve done.

For example, you can post a quiz, even something really silly, and promise people that you’ll message them the right answer if they venture a guess. Naturally, people will want to see if their guess is right, so they will add a comment and be added to your Messenger contact list. This list building technique is powerful and free.

The benefits of Facebook Messenger chatbots is that they provide effectiveness of a messaging platform at scale. In other words, rather than spend your time replying to or messaging individual customers, you can deploy a chatbot that automates the entire process.

Another major benefit of Facebook Messenger chatbots is their sheer marketing effectiveness. For example, when compared to email, the marketing channel with the greatest similarity, Messenger bots are as much as 50x more effective. Messenger bots have, on average, 80% open rates and 20% click through rates. 

Cost savings is also a benefit. Chatbots are free if you use a free chatbot builder like MobileMonkey. If you use a paid service, there is a nominal (often monthly or based on number of subscribers) for using the service. You can pay to use click-to-messenger ads, but the cost is dramatically lower than conventional display ads in Facebook.

Facebook Messenger chatbots are incredibly versatile, which is another significant benefit of using chatbots. You can create a lead magnet chatbot, a drip campaign Messenger chatbot, or simply a helpful customer service chatbot. The possibilities are endless.

The best Facebook Messenger marketing tool is using Facebook Messenger chatbots. Find a Messenger chatbot builder that is free and easy to use, and you can use the power of Facebook Messenger chatbots in your marketing. 

There are many ways that people can discover your business’s messenger bot. The first way is from your website. If you add a Facebook Messenger widget to your website, you can invite people to join your Messenger contact list directly from any page on your site. Usually, this takes the form of a simple “Can we help you” question that opens a conversation in Facebook Messenger.

The second way that people can access your Messenger bot is through your Facebook Business page. By default, Facebook provides a “Send Message” button in the upper right corner of a Facebook Business page. If a customer sends a message to your Facebook Business page, they will be added to your Messenger list.

The third method is through organic posts on Facebook. When you create an organic post, you have the option of allowing people to Send a Message in reply. You can also create an organic post with an auto-responder. This allows any post commenters to automatically receive a response that allows them to opt in to your Messenger list. 

A final method of promoting your Messenger bot is by creating a click-to-Messenger ad. Click-to-Messenger ads allow people to active a Messenger bot sequence when they respond to your ad. 

The best way to create a chatbot from scratch is to do so using a Facebook messenger chatbot builder. Many Facebook Messenger chatbot builders provide templates, which provide a handy starting point if you’re not used to creating Messenger chatbots.

Other chatbot builders like MobileMonkey allow you to drag-and-drop various features into your bot sequence, making it simple and straightforward to design a chatbot from scratch. 

Yes, it is possible to create chatbots without having to do any coding. Code-free chatbot creation is the preferred way for most marketers. It is more costly to create a chatbot using code than it is to develop a chatbot using a chatbot building software. 

Some Facebook Messenger chatbot builders, like MobileMonkey, are free. They provide soup-to-nuts chatbot sequence creation, including creating customer service chatbots, FAQ chatbots, lead generation chatbots, drip campaign chatbots, chat blasts, and other Messenger chatbot features. 

As long as you have the right chatbot builder platform, creating a chatbot does not require any coding whatsoever.

A recruiting chatbot can perform many of the tasks that recruiters would carry out manually. Messenger bots for recruiting are an ideal entry point for candidates, since they can simply send a Messenger message in response to a job posting. The Messenger bot can then take on the task of pre-screening the candidate, getting information from the candidate, and even scheduling an interview with a hiring manager.

MobileMonkey is an ideal chatbot builder. According to Facebook data, MobileMonkey was recognized as the Facebook Messenger Fastest-Growing Solutions Partner. MobileMonkey has a suite of features and functionality not offered by other chatbot platforms. One distinguishing resource of MobileMonkey is the amount of informational resources available to marketers who are building bots. In addition to full in-app help documentation, there are also on-demand webinars, frequent live Messenger chatbot conferences, and even live support from a MobileMonkey professional.

The most profitable Messenger chatbots are those that focused on marketing KPIs like conversions. Many Messenger chatbots offer customer support, which is undoubtedly helpful in marketing. But chatbots can also make a difference on a company’s bottom line. By attracting new Messenger list subscribers and placing those subscribers in a chatbot drip campaign, you have a high likelihood of gaining valuable conversions.

The best chatbot builder on the market today is MobileMonkey. MobileMonkey was identified by Facebook as the fastest-growing chatbot builder. Users build hundreds of chatbots a day on MobileMonkey for businesses from a dentist offices to SaaS corporations.

Part of MobileMonkey’s appeal is the fact that it’s free. Obviously, additional features are available for paid membership, but a huge array of tactics, chatbot sequences, and other features are available to users without paying.

One other distinguishing feature of MobileMonkey is its ease-of-use. Chatbot creation can be tricky, especially when coding is involved. With MobileMonkey, however, no coding is required. The user interface allows user to drag-and-drop chatbot features to create a chatbot easily and simply.

Anyone can learn to create chatbots simply by experimenting on a chatbot builder. It’s free, and you don’t have to your existing subscribers with messages while you’re just getting the hang of it. To learn to build chatbots through experience, create a MobileMonkey account, connect you Facebook Business page, and start building. You can test any chatbot at anytime, by clicking the “Test Dialogue” on the bot builder page. 

It your goal is more information and learning, then you’ll want to check out MobileMonkey’s learning resource center. One good first step is to join a Facebook Messenger Marketing summit. The largest of these summits are hosted by MobileMonkey. In addition to Growth Marketing Summits and Facebook ads summit, MobileMonkey is the sponsor of the world’s largest chatbot marketing summit.

MobileMonkey has a 5-star chatbot master class that will accelerate your ability to learn and deploy powerful Facebook chatbots.

Once someone joins your Facebook Messenger list, you can send them any number of promotional updates within their first 24 hours. After 24 hours, you can send them one promotional update. Facebook calls this the 24+1 Facebook Messenger rule.

Chatbots are the only way to successfully send these promotional messages. As soon as a new contact enters your Messenger contact list, you can send them a bot sequence that can segment them, lead them through your marketing funnel, or provides other opportunities for them to engage with your business.
