howdy chatbot fans. And welcome back, let's go ahead and create our very first chat bot. So we've connected our facebook page and we're gonna go over to the chatbots list and I'm gonna click create chat bot, we have a few different things we need to do over here. So first we're gonna name the chatbots, so I'm gonna name this sofa mania chatbots um test and I'm gonna connect it to a specific facebook page, so I'm gonna connect it to sulfa mania or in fact, I'm going to do because we're not gonna build that, but yet we're gonna I'm just gonna type in um Adventure, we'll call it facebook mastery of course test and I'm going to Limited to 25 characters and I'm going to connect it to our adventure media test page over here and I'm gonna create a brand new chat, but you also have the option to use different templates that mobile monkey has for you at your disposal. It's very cool. I give you, I I recommend that you take some time to go through some of these templates because you'll get a sen...
se of how different companies um might use chatbots to their advantage in different contexts, but um or you could also, another important thing is you could copy an existing chatbot that you have already built and I'm not gonna do either of those things. This course is built to teach you all the different tools and trips tips and techniques that you need to build these great chatbots from scratch. So we're gonna create a brand new chat bot. Now also remember one more thing, while I already have other chatbots associated with this facebook page, you could, you could associate multiple chatbots with a given facebook page, so I'm gonna go ahead and click create brand new chatbots and now I get dumped into the mobile monkey builder. This is where we're gonna be spending most of the time in the rest of this course, um this is like a dashboard, like any other software that you guys have used, there's a lot of things that we could do here, there are a lot of different buttons that could be clicked, there are a lot of different functions and settings that all work together in different areas of, of, of this user interface and we're gonna go through them, each one by one. But first and foremost we're in the pages section. Now, we're in the bot builder section under pages, that's where you first go. The bot builder over here. These three settings is where you configure all your bots, There's one bot builder depend, regardless of whether you're building a drip campaign or you're building a bot to interact with users through messenger ads or you're building a bot to send people to a landing page or you're building a bot for a chat blast. That all happens here. There's ways to organize that and we'll talk about organizing your box with groups and things like that, but all the bot building gets that takes place in this one section, There's nowhere else to do. And it's important to remember that because there's been a lot of confusion with, okay, I'm building a chat blast. Where do I go to build the body? It all happens here and it all gets organized with different pages. The important thing to begin under learning about our widgets and we're gonna talk about widgets in the very next lecture. Don't worry about how overwhelming all the software might look from the outset. We're gonna literally cover every single one of these things. In the very next lecture, we're gonna talk about widgets, what they are, how to start conceptualizing them. And then we're gonna go through each and every single one of these widgets step by step to understand their typical use cases and the specific features and functions that they each have. So I will see you guys in a couple of seconds in the very next lecture.
