Messenger Bots are Scary Effective for Local Businesses

If you’ve been watching Facebook as closely as I have you’ve seen them making a lot of big changes in an effort to help small business owners that have become overwhelmed with using their platform to market their business.

One such addition to the Facebook Feature set has been something called Messenger Bots.

In the last few months, Facebook took steps to make sure that bots became something that was actually helpful for the standard small business owner.

What Facebook Did that Mattered for Bots and Local Businesses:

  1. They enabled automated replies to messages on pages (longer than just one message).
  2. They enabled automated replies to be “timed” and programmed in like an email autoresponder.
  3. They made it so a person could “subscribe” to a bot and get broadcasts messages via an autoresponders.
  4. They enabled a page to automatically respond to people who make comments on a post via messenger based on a defined “bit of text”. PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THIS ONE AS IT’S THE KEY.
  5. They allowed you to link the “auto message generating post” from #4 to a Facebook Ad.

The above presents a big opportunity for you because there are now several big things you can do with bots (without being too much of a tech nerd) to help a small business owner get new customers.
