ManyChat has revolutionized the way that we are now able to use Facebook Messenger. Before we dig in to this full blown ManyChat walkthrough, let's get clear on what exactly Facebook messenger marketing is, and why YOU should care.
What Is Facebook Messenger Marketing?
It's no secret that Facebook is a behemoth marketing platform online. With now over 2 Billion monthly users, if Facebook were a country, it would be just short of the combined population of the two most populated countries on earth – China and India!
So, of course, it's a dream come true for visionary marketers.
Yet until now, the atmosphere where you could effectively follow-up with prospects, has not been ideal.
The main reason is that in order to properly follow up, you had to basically drag people from Facebook, over to your website where you could (hopefully) get them to fill out a form and become an email subscriber (lead!)
In marketing, any time you have to interrupt the flow of the sales cycle, you're creating holes where prospects can leak out. This is true in any marketing media, but especially online where attention spans are minuscule and growing shorter by the day.
The other reason is that until now, Facebook messenger has had next to no automation.

Let's Compare Facebook Messenger Marketing to Email Marketing…
Imagine trying to do email marketing before the invention of the auto-responder. Having to email each person individually, one at a time. No automation, no sequences, and broadcasting meant you had to send 1 mass spammy email using your normal email address. Sure it didn't stop spammers back in the day, because spammers will always spam, but for those wanting to create a successful online business ethically using effective systems, it's just not doable.
Auto-responders changed the game causing businesses and individuals to create fortunes online through email marketing. And now…ManyChat Becomes a Game Changer for Facebook Messenger Marketing! Click To Tweet
It's due time to cut out the middle man, don't you think?
Facebook Messenger Marketing has quietly been proving to be the next Great Marketing Medium for a small group of in-the-know marketers (until now of course!)
And here's the best part…
99.9% of your competition has no clue that Facebook Messenger can be used like this. YOU are now officially vastly ahead of the crowd. And if you lock and load now, the chances of them catching up are slim to none!
And as soon as you fire up the ManyChat bot, and start to connect with your target audience in the place where they're dramatically more responsive, are almost always at (practically hoping for a message to come through), you have the ability to take your targeted connections from prospect to paying customer ALL without ever leaving Facebook.
And ManyChat almost completely automates that process.
YOU are in the right place, at the right time, and times like these don't come around often. It's up to you to grab on, buckle up and enjoy the ride.
With this simple but powerful new strategy you can:
- Grow a highly engaged and responsive list of Facebook Messenger leads
- Put your current email marketing open and click thru rates to absolute shame.
- Complete the entire marketing and sales cycle… without ever pulling prospects away from Facebook!
- Turn website and blog visitors into Facebook subscribers with just 1-click!
- Stay out of Facebook jail if you're promoting an MLM or business opportunity (which Facebook doesn't like!)
- And so much more!

What is ManyChat?
ManyChat is a visual bot builder that integrates within Facebook messenger, and makes most of the automation that we've talked about (and dreamed about) with messenger possible.
Throughout this post we've been not-so-subtly hinting about this tool…or more specifically this BOT…that you can use to automate your messenger marketing campaigns.
In this section we're going to give you a thorough ManyChat walkthrough so that you can see exactly how to use ManyChat, and start using it inside of your Messenger Marketing to grow your business with some awesome automation!
Can you implement a Facebook Messenger Campaign without the ManyChat bot?
Actually, yes you can. However, doing so would be sort of like doing email marketing without an auto-responder. It is possible of course, but the difference in effectiveness is vast.
This is essentially a FREE tool, however there is a PRO version that you can upgrade to very inexpensively ($10/month).
There are few very good and specific reasons that we recommend ManyChat.
First of all, our in-house Facebook expert, MLSP CMO Jesse Jameson has managed multi-million dollar Facebook campaigns for top companies in the industry, and he gives ManyChat his highest recommendation.
This bot is actually highly recommended by Facebook themselves. It's been around for quite some time, therefore it's seasoned, with most of the kinks worked out already. It's a hugely trusted tool.
But most of all, as you'll see, it's very simple to use!
Let's Take a Closer Look at the Dashboard of ManyChat!
The interface inside ManyChat is user-friendly, and simple to navigate around in.
The main screen of the dashboard gives you a bird's eye view. As soon as you log in, you'll see your number of active subscribers, unsubscribes, as well as a graph that keeps track of your subscriber growth.
On the left hand side you'll see the different features within Manychat, and we'll go over each of those now!
Your ManyChat ‘Audience'
The Audience Section is of course extremely important. This is where you'll get to see anybody who has ever subscribed to your messenger list.
Your subscribers can be sorted in various ways. Inside this section you can:
- See how your subscribers came into your messenger list. (Widget, URL, Overlay, etc.)
- Add & remove tags for each individual subscriber with specifics about that person
- Add your subscribers to different messenger sequences as you see fit.
- Pull up a “context card” on any subscriber and see a summary of each individual (including associated tags , best time to call them), or you can simply engage in a chat with them right then and there!
- Search for specific subscribers you want to correspond with.
The Live Chat Screen
You can actually chat with your subscriber right inside the ManyChat platform itself.
Once you hit the ‘Live Chat' link inside the dashboard, you'll be able to:
- Manage the different conversations you have going with your prospects.
- See all the tags associated with different individuals for memory recall on specific things about that person.
- See where they came in as a subscriber so you can gauge their interest as you're chatting.
- Add tags or add subscribers to a sequence during your chat session so that you stay relevant to their wants and needs.
Live chat through ManyChat works just like the regular Facebook Messenger. Only ManyChat adds powerful features so that YOU can enhance your subscribers experience, allowing you to stick to what's specifically relevant for their exact wants and needs.

Understanding ManyChat Growth Tools
Now comes the beefy part where the power of ManyChat really comes in.
ManyChat growth tools make it easy to quickly and continuously grow your FB messenger subscriber base (with 1-click).
Let's go over some of those features now!
ManyChat Overlay Widgets
We covered the overlay widgets briefly before.
Now we're going to go into more detail so that you can see just how powerful these are for growing your list. You'll also be able to watch a companion ManyChat video tutorial to see exactly how this works so you can start setting up overlays on your website today!
Website overlays are similar to an email optin form. Only with ManyChat these become a 1-click subscriber button. Here are some examples of what overlays look like.
Top of Page Website Overlay
This overlay basically rides right along the bottom of your website header, where it grabs your visitor's attention almost immediately.
These have proven to get great conversions, which means you'll start growing your Facebook Messenger List faster.
The Slide In Overlay
These slide in from the side. You can time either top layer or slide-in to come in at the time of your choosing, or by how far down the page your website visitor scrolls.
Once a website visitor clicks the “Connect With Me!” button on your overlay, they are automatically added as a Facebook Messenger subscriber. You can then send them an automatic message with a PDF file where they can access a lead magnet that they may have subscribed to.
It goes directly to their FB messenger, where they're infinitely more likely to open the message than they would with email. In fact, FB messenger averages around 95%+ open rates, opposed to the dismal 18% that we see in email marketing.
But that's not all. You don't have to only use these widgets on your website.
Some other ways you can get Facebook Messenger subscribers using ManyChat include:
- Create an entire 1-click landing page
- Create buttons to use within Blog Posts
- Create messenger URL's where one click of the link subscribes them.
- Send people straight to your messenger list with Facebook Ads!
- And MUCH MORE!

How to Use ManyChat Engagement Tools
Now the point of social media, the point of list building, and the point of marketing to a large extent is to ENGAGE with your audience.
The more you engage with your audience, the more they begin to know, like, and TRUST you!
And the more you do that… the more people want to either join you in your opportunity, or buy products from you! Luckily ManyChat makes engagement simple and automated with your Facebook messenger marketing.
This feature inside many chat is really cool. Here's how it works…
There are certain people in your audience, and on your Facebook list, who want to be notified when you release new content such as your Facebook posts, your blog posts, your videos, etc. You can now easily notify those people every time you release something within the “Autoposting” area.
It acts very much like an RSS feed; it integrates with ManyChat and shoots your carefully tagged FB Messenger Subscribers a message announcing your latest content.
You can be very selective of who receives these messages by using only/if tags. This way you're not bombarding the people who haven't proven to want to be notified. (This is insanely powerful! You'll see how to do that in a video below)
Broadcasts in ManyChat
Broadcasting through ManyChat and Facebook Messenger is very similar to broadcasting through email.
It's as simple as this…
- You create the message
- You select WHO it goes to (using your selected tags)
- You select WHEN you want it to go out
- And then you broadcast it out!
- BOOM! Engagement!
This is very simple within ManyChat and it's extremely effective for engaging your audience, connecting with them on a deeper level, and having them connect with YOU!
The Quick Video Below Gives You a Demo of the Engagement Section Inside ManyChat…
Using the Automation Feature Inside ManyChat
This is an incredibly powerful feature of ManyChat.
This is going to allow you to interact and chat with your FB subscribers, without having to actually be there at the time. Again, it's good if you can be there to chat live as often as possible, but automation allows you to qualify your subscribers so that when you do interact live, you're dealing only with the most serious of them.
So let's get to it!
Create a Menu Within Your Facebook Messages!
When you create a menu within ManyChat, it gives the person messaging you a choice of where they can go with the conversation. In other words, it kind of allows them to choose where the conversation goes, and click on a menu item to indicate what type of information they're looking to get from you.
But what's cool is that you can automate your “welcome message” to go out as soon as someone simply hits the “Message” button on your Facebook page.
Once they do, you can then send them your menu options, which will allow them to continue to steer the conversation in the direction THEY want to go! (This will be demonstrated on a tutorial video in just a minute.)
Using Keywords Inside ManyChat
The keywords feature really gets us at MLSP very excited.
Using this, you can set up keywords inside your automated system that will prompt a response as soon as someone types a certain keyword in the “Messenger App.”
This let's people do some self-help within messenger to get the answers they need from YOU, even when you're not physically there chatting with them.
For instance, if you set up the keyword “Get my gift”, and they were to type that into the chat box, you could set up an automated response with the PDF Report that let's them learn more about the topic that your “gift” covers.
You can even go a step further by letting them know if they simply type the word “menu” – they will be sent the menu inside the message box and, again, they can continue to choose their own adventure within the system. You can automate this functionality so you can continue to engage with your prospects while your out!
This Video Below Demonstrates How This Works within ManyChat (Warning: Your Head May Start Spinning With Ideas!)
Using Sequences Inside the ManyChat Dashboard
As you've likely guessed, sequences inside ManyChat are much like auto-responder messages with email. You can create a complete message sequence inside ManyChat, and set which messages will go out, and at what intervals.
Also, like an email auto-responder, you can see your open rates stats and click-thru rates for your messages. Again many marketers we know using this are immediately seeing open rates as high as 95%!!
The Sequences feature inside ManyChat essentially lets you stay in front of your prospects, provide value to them, and do it all in a personal (yet automated) way!
The Video Below Will Show You What Sequences Look Like Inside the ManyChat Dashboard!
