What do LinkedIn and Facebook have in common..?
You guessed it…
So, why am I sharing this with you?
Well, as you probably already know, I love messaging.
- Email Messaging
- LinkedIn Messaging
- Facebook Messaging
AND chances are…Because we are connected (you’re reading this) – you’ve probably experienced a message (or two), from me over the years – particularly via LinkedIn.
Like it or not – it works – really well.
Let’s change gears and talk Facebook messaging for a minute.
Now, although most people I speak with have had some experience with Facebook – particularly the ads platform, many are yet to try out messaging from the platform.
Funny enough, when I ask why (and I do), most simply say:
- They’re confused,
- Not sure if it will work for them, and
- Have no idea where / how to get started.
Let’s change that!
When it comes to messaging, there are really two options (in my opinion).
Option 1 – Automated Messenger Bots
Option 2 – Manual Messaging
Now I’m not going to get into the debate about which one is better or worse. Reality is, they both have a place in your overall marketing strategy.
How do you get started with Facebook Messaging?
There are many ways to get started.
- Watch a YouTube Video,
- Engage a Consultant,
- Buy a course, plus
- Many, many more.
To keep things simple, however, plus give you an inside look at how a messenger bot can be deployed, easily…
The below image is an example flow of a simple messenger bot flow made with ManyChat (The platform I use). It’s designed to initiate a conversation with a prospect, then leads them into additional follow up.
Some automated. Some manual.
To cut short my long story — I could go on for days about messaging.
The best thing to do is to simply give it a go.
Now, I don’t mean jumping in blindfolded, without a net …and hoping for the best.
Instead, start brainstorming some ideas around where and how you could use messaging, particularly a messenger bot in your business.
…AND, if you’ve got questions and would like to chat with me about them, personally – then simply click here and ask away – I’m happy to help.
Anyway, I’ll leave it there for now – to avoid any overwhelm that may be creeping up.
Have fun. Fall in love with messaging like I have, and talk soon.
