Do you know how to start building a Facebook Messenger Bot? A Bot is an Artificial Intelligent software program that listens to its owner and does what it is told. Bots are an example of a "smart" system, which is exactly what your Bot needs to be successful in the social media world.
To have your Bot Facebook messaging list enabled, you will first need to have Facebook's "Facebook Connect" plugin installed on your website. I am assuming this is already done if you are reading this article right now. All you have to do now is click on the "Integrate" button on the side bar of your website.
Once you have completed this step, your Facebook application will be ready to go! You will need to install the Messenger Bot plugin on your website. Once your Facebook Connect integration is done, you will be able to use Messenger Bot to help get new visitors to your site.
The advantage of using the Messenger Bot plugin is that your visitors will be interested in what you have to offer. They will want to read your message and click on your links, thus giving you more free advertising for your business. Your readers will be more likely to keep coming back to your site if they feel like they know who you are and that you are offering something of value.
In order to take advantage of your Messenger Bot you will need to set up a link or virtual cup of coffee, as my friend Joseph called it. One can add a Facebook URL or link to your application. Then another method is to add some code into the head portion of your messages. There are also a few web-based tools available that allow you to do this.
It does sound cool, but is actually pretty complicated. I've never used them and they do not seem to work all that well.
My favorite way to utilize the Messenger Bot is to customize the chat conversation you create with your Bot. The main reason you need to do this is because a lot of the Bot's capabilities are very limited. Just add to this the fact that the bots require very little maintenance, unlike your existing website. In addition, the Bot cannot recognize keywords, so no keyword research.
To make a conversational experience for your Bot you will need to learn how to build a message. This is accomplished by putting the title of your message in the body of the message. When your message is displayed in your chat window, you will need to put some "stuff" in the email boxes.
The best way to build a conversation is to use some basic HTML codes. If you can write HTML then you will need to start learning HTML coding.
You can also make your Bot use a good website builder. This will allow you to easily build out the Chat window. You can also add custom items such as "links" that will take your visitors to your other sites.
The important thing about the Bot is that it will update itself when new friends are added. Your messages should also send alerts to your other websites if there are any changes.
If you have built a Bot, then you can really start reaping the benefits. The ability to chat with other people, and send short messages will give you an incredible amount of exposure and valuable advertising.
