SYDNEY - Explore the power of Facebook Messenger Marketing + chat bots

Chat bots. Messenger Marketing. Conversation Marketing. You’ve probably heard these words and wondered what they’re all about and whether they are something else you should understand and be spending your valuable business time, money and energy on?

We think the answer is a massive yes, which is why we’ve developed a brand new BYO laptop session on this topic where we’ll give you the rundown on all your options when it comes to Facebook Messenger Marketing, answer your questions and take you through the steps of creating automated responses on your Facebook page and your first bot (or enhance what you may already have in place).

Join us for a half day session from 9am to 1pm and learn:

A chatbot is a service, powered by rules and sometimes artificial intelligence, that you interact with via a chat interface. The service could be any number of things, ranging from functional to fun, and it could live in any major chat product (Facebook Messenger, Slack, Telegram, Text Messages, etc.) For the purposes of this session we will explore ManyChat and its practical application with Facebook.
