What is a messenger bot? And should it be part of your marketing strategy?

Great question in the Modern Marketing Club today…..

WHAT THE HELL IS A CHATBOT? (aka MESSENGER bot)!? 

A Facebook Messenger bot is a chatbot that lives in Facebook Messenger, meaning it converses with some of the 1.3 billion people who use Facebook Messenger every month.

Facebook currently has 300,000 active Messenger bots, and some are predicting that messenger bots will replace email within the next 3-5 years (ask any youngster, they don’t use email, it’s all instant messaging).

WHY USE FACEBOOK MESSENGER?

?It’s permission based – i.e. you have to have permission to contact someone. Subscribers have to OPT IN for every promotion so have a lot more control over what they see

?It’s customisable – you set your bot up to ask questions, and take people down different conversations, based on their preferences

?It’s conversational but can be scaled up – Bots are a great way to segment your audience. Find out what they’re interested in or need help with and ONLY send them information that’s useful (much better than mass marketing your whole email list)

?It’s about CONVERSATION and initiating connection with your audience.

?Over 300,000 are using messenger bots already – it’s the future folks!

?Open rates are 90%+ (compared to 20% for emails).
