Not that long ago, my friend asked me if I could build a messenger bot for him. As an affiliate marketer, I thought I had all the information needed to create a bot of my own.
But, no matter how hard I tried, I simply could not figure out how to create a bot as my friend wanted. So, I just said that I would work on it some other day and not committed to it.
But, recently I ran into something that changed my mind. And it has everything to do with Facebook Messenger Bot!
A Messenger Bot has the capability to connect to a group chat with the people in that group. Since the bot is specifically created to facilitate conversation, its primary goal is to help people get through their day.
It can be as easy as sending a reply to everyone who joins the group or inviting them to chat with you. Whatever your group chat is, the bot can handle it.
So, I decided to take a look at the Messenger Bot. What I discovered was that the bot could help with scheduling meetings, find meetings in a group, arrange parties or workshops, and arrange all the activities required for a group outing.
My friend was not far off when he asked me if I could build a messenger bot. I figured he might be using the bot for something else, like scheduling meetings, but was very surprised when I found out that he wanted me to develop a bot for him.
Before I developed the Messenger Bot for him, I decided to spend a little time looking at what other bots were available and learn more about Messenger Bot. I also wanted to see if I could do it on my own without the help of someone else.
With the Messenger Bot, I realized that I could develop a bot for him that had all the capabilities of a conventional messaging tool. I could also customize it to meet his needs while still staying completely cost-effective.
That allowed me to take a look at the bot from a different perspective. Instead of being a total newbie to the bot, I now realize that I could easily learn the bot and even use it myself.
So, this gives me another reason to develop a Messenger Bot for my friend. While I will get some help along the way, I can also develop my own Messenger Bot to use in my busy life.
Since this is my first bot, I also know that it's possible for me to get better at using it and my bots will become more sophisticated over time. And, by spending time learning the bot, I am also getting better at using it.
