FAQ

1. How does Bot Essentials differ from the free videos & articles?

Good point. There are a lot of free materials, including those in the ManyChat documentation and their Facebook Community.

However, this course goes beyond how to build a simple basic Bot. In Bot Essentials, you’ll learn how to build a bot with all of the 8 features listed above without any frustration and stress of figuring it all out on your own.

I’ll also share strategies, best practices, copywriting tips, blueprints for sequences & automated follow-up campaigns.

Bot Essentials is basically a complete step-by-step A-to-Z guide to help you build a user-friendly, intuitive, and effective Messenger Bot for your own business or for your clients.

As a premium member, you’ll also get access to me and I can provide you with personalized advice and insight to help you build a bot for your unique business.

As Messenger Bots evolves, so will the Ever-Growing Resource Library, helping “upgrade” your Bot and stay up-to-date!

2. Will I have access to all the lessons right away?

When Bot Essentials is opened for enrollment again (in June 2018), all students will get access to Module 0 and 1 right away after their purchase.

Module 2 will be made available on Monday (exact date TBD) and a new module will be release every week on Monday.

3. I'm terrible with technology. Can I build a bot?

This course was specifically designed for non-techie entrepreneurs – so absolutely no coding is required to build a bot! We’ll be using ManyChat’s visual flow builder. In fact, building a bot is much MUCH easier than building a WordPress site! You don’t have to worry about hosting, plugins, or hackers!

The video tutorials in Bot Essentials will walk you through everything, step-by-step. Also included are downloadable cheatsheets, checklist worksheets in each module to help you stay on track!

If you’re a Premium member, you also have 60 days of support and 4 office hours – so just send me a note if you run into any issues! (Note: I don’t work for ManyChat so I won’t be able to help you with technical errors that are beyond my control)

4. Aren't Messenger Bots annoying?

If you think about it, anything marketing tool can be annoying! Email Marketing can be annoying. Facebook Ads can be annoying. Upsells. Pop-ups on a website. Google Ads. Commercials…the list goes on.

In Bot Essentials, I’ll go through best practices when it comes to building bots and leverage bots in a non-spammy way. The focus of the course is to build a bot to help you better understand your users, focusing on the long-term relationship by sending the “right” message at the “right” time.

If you’re looking to build a Messenger Bot to continuously spam users with sales announcements, promos, and discounts – this isn’t the right course for you.

4. What softwares or tools do I need to build a bot?

To participate in Bot Essentials, here are the 3  requirements:

  • A laptop or desktop with internet access
  • A ManyChat account
  • A Facebook account (All students will be asked to subscribe to ThinkTuitive’s Messenger Bot using their real Facebook profile in order to access additional course information and to receive priority support)

Optional: A Zapier account – if you want to integrate your Messenger Bot other 3rd-party tools or systems (eg. email marketing, CRM, Google Sheets)

6. Will Messenger Bots work for my business?

Fact #1 – There are over 1.3 billion people actively using Facebook Messenger each day.

Fact #2 – 2 billion messages are exchanged between business and people each month on Messenger.

As a business, shouldn’t you have a presence on the platform that’s preferred by your customers?

So if you’re looking for a better way to reach, and engage with your existing and potential customers, to build trust and to provide them with personalized recommendations at scale…Messenger Bots are a good fit for you!

7. Will I learn how to build a super-smart bot?

Bot Essentials is a course meant for non-technical entrepreneurs, on how to build a Messenger bot without any coding.

As a result, any Messenger bot built will be “limited” by the built-in features that ManyChat has to offer.

Keep in mind, a “somewhat smart” bot, with limited Artificial Intelligence can definitely help your business! However, if you’re looking to build a highly intelligent Messenger bot that can understand context and full sentences – this is not the right course for you! 🙂

8. I need more time to test out ManyChat...but want to take advantage of the special launch pricing!

As mentioned in my free Intro to Messenger Bots Mini-Course, you cannot easily migrate your subscriber from one bot-building platform to another. You also shouldn’t install more than one bot on a Facebook page – which means you need to choose your bot platform carefully.

If you want to want to join at the special launch price, but:

  • Need a little more time to test out ManyChat to make sure that it’s the right platform for you
  • Won’t have time to go through the lessons for another 1-2 months

Just email me or send me a quick note by tapping on the blue Messenger icon in the bottom right hand corner. I might have another plan that will work for you.
