  2. How many messages they’ve received?
  3. With how many users they’ve interacted?
  4. How many new users they’ve acquired?
  5. What is the number of buttons pressed?

And there is a graph that depicts the number of subscribed and unsubscribed users. Use this analytics report to review your business progress.

2. Create Greetings To Make Your Subscribers Feel Special

The greeting messages show up in the messaging window of users. This is used to make them feel special and create a personalized experience.

Click on “Settings” from the left sidebar. In “General Settings” there is a text box with heading “Type your greeting message here…” click on that box to create your content. In real-time review how your content will appear on Messenger by clicking on the “Show Preview” button.

  2. Click on “Welcome” to set responses customers receive on clicking “Get Started”.
  3. Set responses in “Default” block that bot will use when it fails to solve customers’ queries.


In the “Main” section create cards to form conversational flow that will happen between the bot and subscribers.

Native Elements like (text, lists, gallery, email, phone, location, quick reply and image) can be used while creating cards.

Note- Users can create up to 50 cards using native elements.


4. Use Knowledge Base And Reduce Support Work

Based on your customers’ queries create a pre-defined list of questions to reduce staffing cost.

Every user leverages different keywords. But the answer to the question remains the same. That’s why in “Knowledgebase” panel users can set the keywords that customers use the maximum time to form interaction with the bot.

Such as- if customers types “restaurant” or “restaurant near” or “restaurant nearby” or “restaurant in US”. The bot will respond with answers like-

Are You Looking Restaurant For?

  1. Chinese
  2. Italian
  3. Continental
  4. American
  5. Indian

This will reduce support work plus create a personalized surrounding for the customer. That will simultaneously enhance the relationship with customers.

In “If user says” block enter the terms that your customers might use for the interaction [press ‘enter’ to separate phrases]. And in “Bot Replies Randomly With” block add the most relevant answers for the question.


Users can add up to 5 text replies for every question. And if required users can also add the card created in the stories panel. But it should hold proper images and URLs. If it contains any incomplete information bot will stop responding.

Note- Use the template strings [{{first_name}}{{last_name}}{{name}}{{input}}] to make your answer look more personalized.

Users can create up to unlimited groups for FAQ. Click on “Add New Group” and create as many knowledge base, as you want for your business.


5. Perform Real-Time Bot Testing

On completion of the above steps test how your Messenger bot is responding. Cross-check the above steps if any error comes during the interaction between the bot and user. If you’ve implemented all the above steps and even after the cross-checked your bot isn’t responding. Contact our support team they’ll be available as soon they receive your query.
