If you're looking to build a business on Facebook, why not use a Facebook Messenger Bot? Well, before you read any further, I want to make sure that you've understood what this method is all about.
A Bot is the system that allows a person to set up a web form or application in order to get information from other Facebook users. The process is easy – you create a script that will call a web form on Facebook. Once it's been placed on a page that is actually "bookmarked" by users, anyone who clicks on the link will be sent to the script's web page.
As you might imagine, this method works great for making money – especially when people don't even realize it's happening. When a user goes to their profile, they'll see that they have a form. They can fill out the form and click on a link to open up their account page where the script is located.
This is how the Facebook platform works. If a user decides to click on a link that takes them to a website – that website gets their information through that same script (BOT).
When a user is logged into Facebook, that script will place a link in a page called "Conversations" on the user's profile. That link will then lead to the business's Facebook page, and the user can sign up for more information.
Now, what happens when a person is not logged into Facebook? The same as in the regular scenario, but instead of using their profile to send a link to their friends to use, they use a link that is set up on the bot's page.
Once again, the difference here is that a user has to go to the bot's web page, instead of clicking on a link to a friend on Facebook. So, there is no problem sending the same link to multiple users at once. That's why a lot of businesses use bots instead of having pages with links for users to use.
There are a couple of variations of BOTs available, such as Flicker, Secret or Rocket. The name Flicker is a reference to the old text messaging chat system that still exists today.
After determining which type of bot you want to use, it's important to know that it's not exactly the same as using a chat room. It doesn't take much work for bots to get yourself banned from Facebook, so make sure that you understand the limitations and options before you get started.
If you haven't gotten around to creating your bot yet, it's important to familiarize yourself with the basic requirements that Facebook requires. For example, you'll need to get an API key to work with the platform, along with a Facebook ID to place the bot in the system.
If you're looking to build a business on Facebook, the Messenger Bot can be a great tool to help you get it off the ground. Take some time to research different bots and learn about the process – you won't regret it!
