ManyChat offers a free and Pro platform that allows you to quickly get started with advanced bots. You can use bots to achieve your high growth goals using advanced quick start templates, drip sequences and other tools that allow you to market yourself on Facebook Messenger or SMS.
While there is a lot to love with this platform, the three main features that stand out the most are:
One the most powerful ways to nurture leads is to create a drip sequence. Drip sequences allow you to send messages to leads over time. You can send messages a few minutes apart, or you can spread them out over weeks so that you can nurture lead without being too overwhelming or spammy.
Drip sequences will be one of your most powerful tools.
You can also use advanced quick start templates to speed up the process. These templates will allow you to create messages specific to your business faster and more efficiently. The templates have all been tested, and they work great for getting people to try your product or buy your service.
You'll also be able to leverage a flow builder that allows you to create custom messages and templates from scratch.
You don't need any coding to get started. Enjoy full customization to meet your business’ needs and the needs of your consumers. There's also the option of broadcasting messages to the entirety of your subscriber list. This would be the same as an email blast, but they can be sent out to all of the people that are part of your Messenger subscribers.
When you send out broadcasts, the open rates are usually 200% to 1,000% higher than average, and they have extremely high clickthrough rates.
Add in a little bit of customization, and you'll be well on your way to marketing with great clickthrough rates.

There's also a buy button that you can add to your Messenger that will allow consumers to pay directly through Stripe or PayPal.
If members of your audience have subscribed to your email marketing through the platform, you're able to send each subscriber up to one email per month. You will also be able to send additional emails for a price of 0.003 cents per email.
And you can also send up to 50 text messages during your first month. If you would like to send additional text messages, you will be able to send them at a price of 0.01 cents per SMS.
ManyChat knows and understands that subscribers may interact differently to different messages you send. You'll be able to use advanced A/B testing to test the click through rate and open rate of several different messages.
You'll be able to use this testing to increase the conversion rates of your campaign.
