Manychat Dashboard Tools Review
Let us first explain the account Menu interface, the features of those menus and how or when to you them.
Once you login the first time, there are a couple of steps you need to complete; your purpose for using the bot, to connect a Facebook page, etc. But those steps doesn’t matter though.
Now, you should see the following menus (on the left-side) of your account;
- Live Chat
- Growth Tools
- My Profile
- Upgrade To Pro
This is the first display of your account, it shows summaries of your bot activities of various tools which you have implemented (put in use).
Just as the name suggests, the audience area shows you the full list of audiences or lists that you have acquired over time. From here also you can further navigate to see specifically the audiences on each growth-tools you have.
This is a window for fresh conversation. And you can as well from here open “already concluded conversations (called; “Done Conversations”)
This is the major and engine room of this bot. The feature “Growth Tool” is for building your list. In other words, for initiating first communication with your prospective audience.
You know well that list is the “CASH”. You take away the list, so you have taken away “MONEY” on the table. So this is a ket feature of ManyChat Messenger Bot.
From here you create and structure how you want your communication (flow-chat) or sales funnel to look like. For example; from your Facebook page to your website or to your sales page (depending on your target), vas vasa.
Also, you can create a chat tool that you place to appear on your website or landing page; to engage the new audience so they become subscribers. You have visited some sites and you see a “messager icon” at the bottom of the page/website, that is what I’m talking about.
The Growth Tool” is generally for building new audiences using diverse means of achieving that.
This is where you set up automatic flow messages. For example; setting messages how and when you want it delivered to your subscribers.
The Automation has other sub-menus which include; Main menu, default replay, welcome message keywords, sequences, and rules.
These sub-menus have various functionalities.
Main Menu: allows you to set up menus in your chat messager bot. From Facebook, your audience will see those menus and click anyone they are interested in. For instance, the menu may be; Home, About Us, Resouce Page, etc. Although you are only allowed to create up to three menus and this sub-menus.
Default Reply: These are messages you set up (or use the default reply) which you send to users when the bot can’t recognize any Keywords in their messages.
Welcome Message: this is where to set up the message that is sent out to new subscribers on the very first day they interacted (subscribed) with you. It is very important to set up your Welcome message to avoid the boring moment when new subscribers come in for the first time.
Keywords: This is where you set certain keywords to trigger particular messages or flows that you have created. For example, if you have set up Jobs or job or recruitment as keywords then you set up or connect it to trigger your job recruitment articles to the subscribers, and so on.
Rules: Custom rules section lets you create automatic events in ManyChat that can be extremely diverse and powerful. The idea is very simple: when some event happens for a specific subscriber, perform some action.
This is also one of the powerful parts of the bot account. In Flows, it let you create several messages for different purposes that could be linked up while building your sequences, broadcasting, etc.
ManyChat already created examples to let you understand this area and get started.
This area allows you to set up your “Greeting Message Text”, but not limited to that; You can decide to create a template, refresh Facebook permissions, deactivate or delete your ManyChat account and many more.
Already made templates have been created for different purposes. And you also have the opportunity to create a custom template.
In the “My Account” area, you will see all the Facebook pages connected to your ManyChat account. Also, you can quickly access Templates, Agency, and Settings from this page.
Agency: This is where you set up your agency account, edit your agency page/profile, see your earned commission so far.
Settings: it lets you generate tokens to start using ManyChat API.
This is the area of your ManyChat dashboard where you can create a ticket, join ManyChat community for learning and updates, get video tutorials for every part of ManchChat you don’t understand, also you can hire an agency and read help documentation from here “Help”.
