Assign Custom Attributes to Messenger Contacts to Segment Audiences

Marketing personalization takes on new meaning with custom variables in Facebook Messenger contacts. Segment and send content based on who they are and what they need.

Step 1: Use custom variables in Forms and Quick Questions to save attributes to customer profiles.

For instance, you might gather any of the following as you learn about users’ interests and activities:

  • Contact info
  • How they heard about you
  • Quick Questions they answered, maybe their industry or product interest
  • Info in forms they filled out, like their budget or timeline

You can use custom variables to customize and personalize your messaging with dynamic variable insertion.

Step 2: Create audience segments with custom attributes.

Layer on system attributes from Facebook Messenger like where they are and when they subscribed to segment by location and brand awareness.

Step 3: “Remarket” to audience segments with follow-up automation including Facebook Messenger drip campaigns!

Assign Attributes to Messenger Contacts with Ease

It’s easy to assign variables as you build your chatbot. MobileMonkey’s content builder takes custom variables into account from the get-go.

Add a variable to your Messenger conversion forms by naming your variable in the “Save to” field. That’s it!

You can use guided multiple-choice responses and free-form text responses to collect variables.

For text responses like above, the user-typed response is saved as the attribute.

For multiple choice responses, specify the values:

Multiple choices show up as mobile-friendly and friction-free buttons the user can choose from:

Segment Audiences and Send Relevant Content

Use custom variables to slice and dice your audience into interest-based and time-based segments.
