How to send a facebook campaign

Facebook campaigns allow companies to advertise their products or services, notify people about events, send invitations, or congratulate users. With SendPulse, you can create and send campaigns to all of your bot subscribers or a specific audience segment.

Facebook Messenger chatbot subscribers are users who interacted with your Page, for example, clicked "Message" and asked a question, subscribed via a widget or subscription form, or started communicating with your bot by clicking "Get started" in the chat window.

Go to the Chatbots section to create a campaign and click Create campaign.

Select a bot

Choose a previously connected bot from the drop-down list and the campaign will be sent to that chatbot’s audience list.

Segment your audience

If you need to segment your audience, select the Segment recipients checkbox. Your campaign will be sent only to those who meet the specified criteria. For example, if you collect additional variables during subscription, create global variables, or add tags, you can segment your audience according to the conditions Variable and Tags.

You can select the was active in the last 24 hours checkbox to send a campaign to those who have been online on Viber in the last 24 hours.

To add multiple conditions for a more personalized message, click Add the list segmentation criteria. Once you add them, click Apply.

Next, type in your message — it should not be longer than 2,000 characters.

Type in your message

You can also add variables and emoji to it. To do this, click {} in the upper-right corner of the text field, and select a variable from the drop-down list. Each user will receive a message with a variable value from their contact info.

Add a button

You can add a button with a link, use it to launch a flow, or add a payment method. Place the button under your text or any other element. Clicking the button will trigger the appropriate action: follow the link, make a payment, or start a flow. You can add up to 3 buttons in one mailing.

Continue the flow

Select the type of button Continue flow a flow that will be sent when a user clicks the button.

You can add a link to an external source and start a flow when a subscriber clicks on the link.

To send a flow after a user follows a link, enable link tracking in the bot settings.

Payment

Add payment buttons that allow subscribers to purchase products right in your Viber chatbot. To do this, add a payment method, and in the button settings, select a payment system, and enter your product name and payment amount.
