7 Different Facebook Messenger Chatbots

Facebook Messenger Chatbots can be used for a lot more than you might think.

When Facebook first introduced their Messenger Chatbots, it seemed like just another way to address customer complaints. But in reality, they’re used for a whole lot more.

Organisations have the freedom to be creative with their bot and tailor it to meet their consumer’s needs.

Would you like to discover how Facebook Messenger Chatbots could contribute to your digital marketing? Here’s a few excellent examples of brands who are making the most out of Messenger Chatbots.

1. Poncho

Poncho, The Weather Cat, can help you decide if you need to pack an umbrella on your travels to work.

Chat to Poncho about the weather forecast and current conditions in your area.

Not only can Poncho be a life saver when it comes to quick weather updates, it’s actually rather interesting to ‘chat’ to. Just because Chatbots don’t have a person sat behind the keyboard doesn’t mean they can’t hold interesting and engaging conversations with some personalised replies.

2. CNN – Daily News

Keep on top of news around the world with CNN’s bot.

The bot will give you the option to subscribe to daily news, check out their breaking news or updates from your area. Alternatively, if you’d like news suited to your interests you can find topic related articles too.

It’s the perfect way to stock-up on information that interests you without having to search endless news publication websites

3. MemeGenerator Bot

If you want to amuse yourself on your daily commute, you can always create memes. Social media just wouldn’t be the same without them. They’re becoming more and more common in digital marketing too.

Now for the interesting part, the bot will make a meme for you if you upload an image, a top and bottom text.

4. Sephora

The makeup brand has launched a bot for consumers to book makeovers, share store feedback and chat with support.

They’re one of the first in their industry to launch a bot. For now, only consumers in Canada and US can take full advantage of the bot since others can’t book makeovers / share store feedback in other areas. But, we’re hopeful that as Sephora’s bot becomes more advanced, consumers in other countries can enjoy Sephora’s personalised pocket assistant too!
