3. Building a Facebook Chatbot in Chatfuel

Facebook Messenger chatbots will be the next BIG marketing trend in 2017 and beyond.More than 1 billion people are active on Messenger every month, so why not monetize this platform as part of your/your client's social media marketing strategy?

The beauty is that chatbots are still in their infancy, meaning that very few businesses are using them to sell. This equates to HUGE opportunity for you, as a digital marketer, because deploying a bot will help your brand — and whatever products you're selling — stand out from the competition.

Some advantages of building Facebook bots include...

  • 90% open rates, compared to the average 30% with email marketing
    Instant, relevant answers to users who message your page, eliminating slow responses and missed sales.
  • Reach all your fans without paying Facebook to "boost" your posts.
  • Personalize your sales pitches using Facebook data, proving to customers that you understand them.
  • Monetize your conversations inside Messenger without redirecting them to a painfully slow sales page.
