10 Tips – Facebook Messenger Platform Automation, Easy, Traffic, & ROI – Part 1

Tip 1of 10

Is Facebook Messenger Good For Your Business?

The introduction of Messenger, a Facebook communications Platform, happened on August 9, 2011. Many now refer to this platform/app as the New Email. That is really a misnomer as they work very differently. However, Messenger may be replacing email and for good reason.

On FB Messenger, messages are delivered through notifications and text, so your audience is more likely to get them right away. And you can see if someone is typing a reply message back to you – people will wait for it and respond back immediately – click “send” and delivery is done, like . . . NOW!

People love the ability to message back and forth. You can engage a person, almost like a one-on-one conversation, in real time, and do it uninterrupted! Many folks are using this along with Skype, or instead of Skype, to “talk” with family and friends, or to communicate with businesses in far away places. Think of what that can mean in a business setting. Now add to that automation – I digress – but we will get there, hang-on.

A study done by Aspect states and 49% agreed that “If a company could get it right, I would rather conduct all my customer service interactions via text/chat/messaging” – we’re talking about a Bot.

Email and Messenger are compared with each other because of their open rates – access and readability.

Even though their open rate is 70% to 80% Messenger is said to be only used by less than 2% of the Business Community?

Emails? Open rate 25% to 30%, on a good day, with estimates as low as 15%.

The Point of Tip #1 of 10 is:

Is this the New Email? With open rates, 3 to 4 times that of email think of what Messenger could mean to your business communications!

Tip #1, not using Messenger? . . . a word of wisdom . . . START!

WHY Consider Facebook Messenger For Your Business?

Messenger is designed to allow a Business to do so many things far beyond what any email campaign can ever accomplish.

For starters you can:

  • Customize your Messenger messages with The content that You want as well as with images, video and various types of Ads and messages.
  • Gather much more information and do it naturally.

ASK! Ask one question at a time after giving your reader a reason to answer . . . and . . . they will!

  • Organize that information into Google Sheets* or into your CRM* and do it automatically.

Tag and Trigger a follow-up strategy with far less effort than ever before.

You can Tag a keyword that your audience responds to. That becomes a Trigger which is used to send an appropriate message of follow-up to all who responded to that keyword.

  • Segment your audience for contacting according to their specific category that you assign.

This is much like the above but you can categorize people as a Buyer or a Prospect. Or you can find out if they are interested in one procedure versus another or when they are ready for a checkup, an audit or perhaps to buy or sell, depending on Your business.

  • Send special notifications of an Event, a Webinar, a new publication of Your Newsletter or Your Blog post.

These are only a few types of contacts or engagements possible.

A lot of these things can be built into your Bot* and make them happen on schedule and automatically. The end result, a richer relationship with those you want to do business with.

Keyword Recommended Resources:

The Keyword tool we use most often is this Keyword Tool. Last I checked they still had a Free version but the paid edition is outstanding. When I bought it this was a one-time lifetime fee.

Google Adwords, Keyword Planner is also good and it is Free. You do need a Google Adwords account but it to is Free, until you place an Ad but you are not required to do so at this point in time.

There are any number of Keyword tools. However, I find that most do require a monthly fee which i am about up to here with. That’s why I recommended the two above. The first one, if a fee, is one time and good for life. The Google Keyword Planner is not as good as it once was . . . but it is still free last I checked.
