How Does Messenger™ Marketing Work?

Messenger allows you to connect personally with your customers, provide excellent customer service, answer frequently asked questions, and move them to take action.

Covert Influencer

Businesses are looking for increased WARM leads, increased return-on-ad-spend (ROAS), and increased net revenue.

In this video, I summarize "The Covert Influencer" book by Travis Stephenson (CEO of Chatmatic), which delves into how Messenger Marketing works (click below for a free copy of the book). It's a good place to start learning, and there are a couple of free training sessions available for a deeper dive... or you can hire Katalytic to make this a reality for your business!


Benefits of Automated Messaging Campaigns

Through automated Facebook Messenger and/or Instagram Direct Message conversations, you can ... Build a multi-channel list... Provide immediate customer service... Answer FAQs... Increase your monthly revenue by 10 to 35% thru increased customer satisfaction, increased communication, engaging organic campaigns, low cost ads, etc......


Open Rates

Automated Messenger chatbots get 4x more opens than email... 80% open rate as compared to about 20% open rate.

Build your subscriber list on autopilot. When someone interacts with your Messenger automation, they become a Messenger subscriber for your business!


Opt-in Rate

Automated Messenger chatbot campaigns are consistently getting between 60%-80% opt in rate. 

On top of that, you can build 3 different “lists” (email, SMS, Messenger) all at once on autopilot - set it and forget it. These can be used in future campaigns.


Engagement Rate

Messenger provides better engagement, exclusivity, & relationship-building (14x value vs. email across the same campaigns). Keep your subscribers moving through your Messenger sales sequence with engaging copy to your CTA (call to action).

Messaging Automations Benefit both Your Business and Your Customers

and can be implemented on both Facebook Messenger and Instagram Direct Message!

Example Messenger™ Workflow Designs

The basic business goals of using Messenger are multi faceted: generate leads, build your lists (Messenger subscribers, email, SMS text), and increase net revenue. But ALSO do these things in a fun and engaging way that benefits the customer in terms of time-savings and value received, thus creating brand loyalty and raving fans!

VIP Program

This is just one example of what a VIP program Messenger workflow might include. This example is a fun Mexican restaurant quiz where everyone wins. :) Besides gaining another Messenger subscriber, an email address is collected and can automatically be sent to your CRM and can trigger an email automation sending the new VIP an email of how the program works and what it includes. This workflow can be easily customized for any VIP program for any business category or an entirely new VIP concept can be developed.

Social Media Contest

This is just one example of what a Social Media contest Messenger workflow might include. This little workflow IS SO POWERFUL -- it encourages engagement and shares, while generating a subscriber for your business and collecting an email address. It can be triggered to run by asking your followers to comment on the Contest post. Messenger allows for "comment triggered" workflows to be kicked off when someone comments on a particular post that you've set up to do so. Sooooo amazing!

Buyer Thank You Ad

This is just one example of what a Buyer Thank You Ad Messenger workflow might include. This little workflow IS SO POWERFUL -- it provides a recent customer a coupon code to shop again (potentially for a limited time) to get the things they left in their cart or couldn't afford. Have you experienced this yourself before? I know I have... and it works! By bringing the customer into this Messenger workflow, they are now a subscriber for your business, and you can easily and inexpensively connect with them again. It's a win/win for both the customer and the business.

Plastic Surgeon mini-consult

This mini-consult example is for a plastic surgeon's practice, but the same concept could be used for a Chiropractor, MedSpa, Real Estate practice, etc... By engaging with this Messenger mini-consult, a prospective client becomes a Messenger subscriber for the business. Appointments can be scheduled right from the Messenger conversation if an online calendar scheduling link is included and/or you can collect a phone number. The client's email address is also collected and can automatically be sent to your CRM to automatically trigger an email being sent with new patient forms (or Real Estate listings)...

Messenger™ Case Studies

We have seen case study after case study that proves Messenger's high return on invesment --> increased engagement, lower cost per lead, increased return on ad spend, increased sales, increased brand sentiment... 

Here are a few case study examples:


Seeking to boost sales, LEGO wanted to offer gift recommendations to consumers, guiding them through the company's extensive catalogue. They partnered with a marketing team and rolled out their first Messenger sequence/bot during the 2017 Christmas shopping season. Its success urged them to expand on the idea, and they launched a 2-week campaign (March 22–April 6, 2018) with expanded reach with an Easter ad and a "good report card" ad. Thru Facebook Ads Manager they were able to compare the performance and success of click-to-Messenger ads vs. click-to-website ads, as shown here: 

Happy Socks

Wanting an innovative yet playful way to sell more socks during Christmas and Valentine's Day, Happy Socks ran video ads with a click-to-Messenger objective that helped Facebook and Instagram customers navigate its 300 sock styles and find the perfect pair. They targeted ages 20-50 in more than 25 countries across Europe, Australia and North America for over the 2-month campaign. 

Blenders Eyeware

Wanting to sell more sunglasses at a more efficient cost, Blenders and the marketing agency that they hired created a Sponsored Message ad campaign. This was messaged for 2 days to people who had already taken part in a Messenger conversation with the Blender Facebook Page and to people who had shopped on its website and abandoned their cart before purchasing. [This is something that Katalytic does also for its clients who have Messenger subscribers.] The Messenger sequence/bot nurtured existing relationships and led the users to clear Call-to-Action options: “Learn More” or “Shop Now” along with a company branded image of sunglasses.  Through a split test in Facebook ads manager, Blenders was able to compare its Sponsored Message campaign to the same campaign going to other Facebook platforms (not Messenger). The results were:
