Create a chatbot with Facebook:

Step 1: Choose your type of chatbot

First, go on the platform for Facebook developers. To start, click on the “Get started for free” button. Then enter your Facebook credentials. Then enter the name you want to assign to the bot. Be sure to choose your name correctly as this is the name that will appear to users.

Step 2: Configure the Home screen

Congratulations! Your chatbot is created. But the work is not done. Now is time for you to configure it to your needs.

Start by configuring a welcome screen. Click on the blue “Welcome message” box. Then edit the message that will appear to welcome the user.

You will have the opportunity to improve this message and make it more attractive to the person you are talking to. In particular by adding an image gallery or a video. The objective is to offer a clear, precise, and fluid message to the user. This message should allow the user to subsequently go to your web page to obtain more information, for example.

Step 3: Test your bot

This is the longest step because you have to define the main functions you will need to make your chatbot talk and test and make it operational. For example, you should:

  • Specify what the robot should say or display when the user writes certain words or certain sentences. Choose the terms that are most likely to be used by your target;
  • Remember to plan regular mailings and notifications: weather forecast, new publications ...;
  • Appoint administrators of the robot among the collaborators who manage your Facebook page .

To test your robot, click on the blue “Send to Messenger” button. The bot will then start a conversation with you! And there you go!

The two main Facebook Messenger chatbots offer to exist within Facebook are:

  • The classic bot solution . It will cost you between $ 235 and $ 2300 per month depending on your case. The functionalities will therefore be basic and can be of use when you wish to reply to simple messages from your users.
  • The natural language bot solution . This solution will cost you between $ 2,300 and $ 12,000 per month depending on the technologies adopted, the technical infrastructure and the volume of messages. Indeed, the chatbot will be able to adapt its message according to the responses of the customers.
