Messenger Ads Best Practices and Sample Strategies
Howdy chatbots fans and welcome back, I want to briefly talk to you about some best practices for click to messenger ads using mobile monkey. And then I'm gonna give you just a bunch of quick use cases that we've been using for our active clients. When you think about your messenger ads, you have to realize the core fundamental difference between what you're, what you've done previously and what you're doing now. You're not sending leads to your website, you're now opening a conversation with them. Right? When you send a lead to the website, your ad has to really convey a lot more information because once they get to the landing page, you're no longer interacting with them. Your landing page on your website has to do all the talking. When you run a click to messenger, add all you need to do is get them to say the first thing get them to engage with you in a back and forth conversation and all that additional supporting information that you want your landing pages to convey and you want...
ed your ad to convey all that could happen throughout the chatbot funnel. That's the real fundamental difference. And when you start thinking about it that way, you'll see how different ads are going to be effective for click to messenger than they are going to be for. For typical facebook facebook advertising on that note, curiosity is the number one factor that works to get a high click through rate with facebook and click to messenger ads pie king curiosity, arousing curiosity, followed by social proof. You want to use as much social proof as possible. But social proof could come more throughout that chat by funnel, don't try to make a sale in a click to messenger add that's a mistake arouse the curiosity that there's a valuable conversation to be had by opening up a chat with us today. And then once you're in the chat, you could sell, once you're in the chat, you can promote your content. Once you're in the chat, you promote your services, you engage. But the beauty of it is is like, I'm not looking to get you to my website to buy something or to like download something right now, just like just talk to me like that's there's something, there's something in it for you. And then from just a language and style perspective, don't ask for the conversation, Don't ask for the sale. Don't make it sound like the users should sacrifice their time for your sake. Don't do what all other advertisers do, don't just say, oh, talk to us today because we're the best brand of um we sell, we sell the best lightning adapters are, we were the original or whatever. Like these are sort of empty promises that anybody can make convey a message that we trust in, you were willing to take a gamble on you, we want to engage with you and like and actually have a customer relationship here. Like that's important and that could be conveyed in very subtle ways. Use images that your audience relates to. Think about who you're targeting, right? If you're targeting men, men will relate more to pictures of men in their age group, so on and so forth, ethnic backgrounds. If you're targeting women, same thing. So many marketers fail to realize this core fundamental concept. And back in the days when you were doing print and radio it was very difficult to like target specific messages because you were just you were shooting your message out to so many people to see what sticks. But now we have the ability to send specific things to men and specific marketing message to women and use that to your advantage when you can use a different image for instagram. That's just it's a different instagram is a much more visually oriented platform. So the images that will work on facebook are a little bit different than the images that will work on instagram. Not the biggest deal, but if you can use a different image, a big piece of advice that I can give you is used data from your previous facebook campaigns. If you guys have been running facebook ad campaigns for a while, I can't tell you how many people fail to learn from the previous data that they've paid for. Part of the money that you're paying facebook for is the data. So you can easily get demographic data if you've tested different audiences before and different audience combinations. Different look like audiences on facebook go back into those ad groups go back into those campaigns and see which see which replacements, demographics and interest behavioral targeting combinations were working the best for you. Let's quickly talk about a couple out of the box Messenger as strategies that we've seen work and that we're currently developing for our clients. Each one of these examples comes from an active client of Adventure Media's. And so, so this is not just, you know, conjecture. Forbes magazine uses click to Messenger as to generate low cost newsletter subscribers based on interest targeting. So Forbes magazine came to us, we manage all their digital advertising for their print subscription and they have a bunch of different newsletters that they want people signing up for because they're able to sell more print subscriptions. Once people sign up for these newsletters and each newsletter target a different demographic. So facebook chatbot, click to messenger ads are a great way to engage a conversation to figure out which newsletter would be most appropriate for each person and then offer them a link to sign up for that specific newsletter. And again remember the beautiful thing is that we're saving that variable, which is really fantastic. A senior living facility actually in that room right there. Um across this wall, our team is having a conference call with that client is generating leads through Messenger ads asking users what's most important to them in your senior senior living home, like what are the most important features. Um, and and benefits, what services are most important to you. Again, we're then able to tailor the content through drip campaigns and blasts. And we're also saving those custom attributes to be used in future marketing campaigns. A self defense company that makes, uh, backpacks with bulletproof vest attachments and things like that. Uh, promoting a new line of tactical products by sending out. They have, they have fantastic video content. Really funny video, really engaging video.

And the ads that you'll see again is about is about arousing curiosity message just to see the crazy, the crazy video of a bulletproof vest backpack in action. Right? Like everyone's gonna click that. It's just Messenger. I'm not like no one's nervous about loading a really long webpage or trying to find the video or whatever it is. It's like, it's gonna be right there for them to watch it when they want. So, these are really effective things.

What The last what's the last text book you bought? How many textbooks do you carry?
