Integrating Facebook Messenger for Business

Exciting one-click easy integration process!

Why Facebook Messenger?

With over 900 million monthly active users, Facebook Messenger is the second most popular messaging application worldwide (WhatsApp being number one). It’s huge and keeps on growing. You probably already have a Facebook page and have applied all the tips and tricks to grow it quickly.

As a consumer, you may have noticed an increase in brands allowing you to reach out to them via Messenger with either a simple “hello” or by engaging with their chatbot. It’s an exciting new trend, and as a business, you can be a part of it!

By making your business available to the public on Messenger, building a chatbot or even broadcasting your message to subscribers, you’re getting closer to your customers.

At ubisend, we believe messaging through applications is the way forward for brands, and thats why we’ve built a platform enabling you to do just that: converse with your customers.

Facebook Messenger is a fantastic application to integrate with your mobile messaging campaigns, however, the process can seem a bit daunting.

In this blog post, I’m going to show you how easy it actually is and get you ready for your first Facebook Messenger autoresponder! Enough of an introduction, let’s get started.
