Messenger Bots Versus Email Marketing

How to Grow Your Business With Messenger Bots
With a bot, your audience has unlimited access to you 24/7. No matter where they are in the world in relation to you, they get immediate service. We are in a day and age where people are searching for information and need answers right away.
When you use this type of auto-responder, you are providing your customers and clients with the services they need at a time that is convenient to them.
By being strategic with creating your responses and information, you will provide value to others.
Other Benefits of Using a Bot
Aside from having 24/7 access to you, there are other benefits of using a bot. You can send push notifications to those that follow you. For example, when you write a blog post, you can send them a message letting them know where to check it out.
If you have any real time events taking place, you can send out a quick message to your followers to let them know. For example, when you are about to do a Facebook Live or do a webinar, you can get more involvement with the reminder.
The bot can also learn how to respond better to your audience when they ask things that aren’t part of the prompts. If the bot simply can’t respond well, it will send you an alert so that you can step in and take over.
