How to Integrate the Facebook Messenger Bot With Your Business
There’s no doubt that the popularity of Facebook has reached an all time high and that means there’s also huge traffic flowing through Facebook. This is not only good for the popularity of Facebook, but for the growth of the Internet itself. If you have an account with Facebook, you know that it’s the easiest way to keep in touch with friends and family. But did you know that with a popular social media site such as Facebook, you can run a variety of programs that help improve the functionality and usefulness of your Facebook account? The Facebook Chatbot and the Facebook Bot are two examples of these programs.
In the recent past, the use of bot programs or software programs have been considered somewhat controversial. Why all the fuss? For starters, Facebook Messenger currently has around 1.3 million monthly active users world wide. Not registered members. Not individuals who got force to download it into their systems when Facebook spun it off from the original standard Facebook application.
As I’ve alluded to already, the potential customers that could be tapping into the Facebook messenger are those with an account already. The chatbot was developed by a group of highly-talented IT students who have a long history in programming. With years of experience in creating online games and other applications, they were hired by Facebook to take on the project. As you can imagine, they took great care in crafting this bot and while it might not be the high-quality programmer robot that you’d want to use for your personal use, it’ll do the job for your business needs perfectly well. And it’ll do a great job for you.
What the chatbot can do for you is basically anything you need it to do. It can forward messages, send messages and share pictures. It’s also a great way to interact with your own contacts as well as sending out customised greetings to your own contacts. And best of all, since it’s a Facebook application, your messages and other content will be automatically added to your fan page.
If you’re wondering how this can help you and your fan page, let me give you an example. You might want to have a discussion about your latest blog post and you’d like it to appear in your friend’s news feed. By using the Facebook messenger bot, you can easily do that. All you’d have to do is create a short conversation and then include a short but memorable greeting message.
So if you have an account already with Facebook, you don’t have to start building brand awareness from scratch. You can use one of the many Facebook applications already in place. It’s not difficult and it won’t take much time at all. But most importantly, as an entrepreneur, you can get started building brand recognition with these tools. That’s what’s most important: building brand recognition. Using Facebook messenger bots is the best way to make that happen.
