When it comes to Facebook Messenger Marketing and chatbots, we prefer to work with the ManyChat platform. Here’s what we need you to do in order to setup a new ManyChat account, link it to your Facebook Page and grant access to us to build your bot. There is a free tier which is enough to started, however we will usually require you to sign up for a ManyChat Pro Plan which starts around $15/month. This gives us all features we need.
There are 9 steps to this process. Please complete them all, and then send us the URL you receive in the final step.
