Today, I’m here to tell you all about message tags for Facebook Messenger bots. You might be wondering what they are and how they can help you chat with your Messenger contacts in an awesome way that’s completely free, legit, and approved by Facebook.

So, let’s dive into the world of Messenger tags – a super cool way to market your chatbot and connect with the 1.3 billion people using Facebook Messenger every month. And get this, you can expect an impressive 80% engagement rate!

Alright, let’s start from the very beginning.

What exactly are Facebook Messenger Tags?

When a business decides to use a chatbot for Facebook Messenger to automate conversations, they are basically tapping into Facebook Messenger developer APIs. This happens in two main ways:

1) The chatbot responds to customer inquiries and messages

2) The chatbot actively reaches out to customers for further conversation

If you’re using a visual Messenger bot platform like MobileMonkey, we handle all the technical stuff and run your chat messages through the APIs on your behalf.

Now, let’s delve into these two use cases and explore how message tags play a vital role.

Chatbot Responding to Your Contacts

When someone sends a message to your business, your chatbot replies (that’s what it’s called in the Facebook developer docs). For the next 24 hours, you can send messages to that person without any cost to your business. This is known as Standard Messaging or 24+1.

Now, let’s talk about how your chatbot can engage your contacts. If you want to send a promotional message, it’s best to do it as a Sponsored Messages ad. But if it’s a non-promotional message, you can choose from 17 pre-defined tags that businesses must use when sending messages using Facebook Messenger’s developer APIs. The good news is that Facebook doesn’t charge businesses to send messages with any of these 17 non-promotional message tags.

I want to tell you something really cool! Did you know that Facebook has created 17 special tags for Messenger? These tags allow businesses to send messages through chatbots in Messenger absolutely free! And here’s the best part – there are no limits or restrictions on when or how often these messages can be sent. It’s like having unlimited access to a special communication tool!

Here’s how Facebook puts it:

Message tags let me send messages to someone even if it’s been more than 24 hours since we last chatted. I can use them for certain important things that require regular updates. This gives me more options for how my bot interacts with people and what experiences I can create on Messenger.

It’s easy to do. I just create my message, choose a tag (click here to see how), and presto! I can instantly send my message to the people I want to reach.

And the best part? These messages are completely free. They’re genuine and natural.

Sending Facebook Messages with Messenger tags is a legit and ethical way to use Facebook Messenger.

… As long as I follow the rules for each messaging tag, of course.

First, you’ll need to choose the audience you want to send the message to, and then select the chat dialogue you want to use.

Make sure that the chat dialogue you’ve created matches the Message Tag you choose below. For instance, if you select the Community Alert tag, your dialogue should be related to Community Alerts.

Next, you’ll have to decide whether you want to send a promotional message, a subscription message, or a Notification/Update.

Let’s talk about using Messenger tags to send messages. It’s a great way to communicate strategically and appropriately.

The Rules of Sending Messages with Messenger Tags

Messenger tags are awesome. They bring absolute positivity and offer a major benefit to your Facebook Messenger marketing.

But like anything else, they come with rules. In fact, Messenger tags are basically a set of rules.

These tags give instructions on what a message can say. And the cool thing is, they are all about providing valuable information, not promoting anything.

However, there are only a few specific cases where you can use Messenger tags. We have to follow these rules for now. But, if you have suggestions for new tags, you can share them with Facebook easily.

Just go to the Facebook for Developers page on Message tags.

Then, click the Suggest a Tag button and present your case. It’s as simple as that!

Okay, let me break it down for you. I need you to tell me how you plan on using this thing and why you’re not using it for promotions. But here’s the kicker – you’ve only got 1024 characters to do it. So try to keep it short and sweet, alright?

When it comes to sending messages, there are a few important rules I need to follow:

  1. I must make sure that all my messages are not promotional. This means I can’t use them to advertise products or services.
  2. Each message should fit into the category I choose. In other words, I need to make sure my messages are relevant to the topic or theme I have selected.

Now, you might be wondering, what exactly counts as promotional content? Well, Facebook provides some examples such as daily deals, coupons and discounts, or sale announcements. But there isn’t a strict definition, so it’s up to my own judgment to decide. If it seems like promotional content to me, then it probably is.

But what if I do want to send promotional content? Well, that’s where Promo Blaster comes in. It’s a tool that allows me to send promotional messages without breaking the rules.

I’ve got an important tip, and it’s a doozy! Listen up, folks. When it comes to Messenger tags, steer clear of them. Yeah, I know, it might sound kind of mysterious, but trust me on this one. If you go ahead and use Messenger tags on Facebook, the bigwigs over there will catch you, and boy, will they put the hammer down. Yep, they’ll ban you faster than a speeding bullet. So, my advice to you is to play it safe and stay away from those Messenger tags. Better safe than sorry, right?

Let me give you a tip: don’t go too far.

Do you know what it means to go too far? Some marketers have tried to trick their contact list by sending out an invitation to a marketing webinar and calling it an event update.

Hold on a minute. That’s not an event update. It’s a sneaky way to promote something.

Listen up, folks! I’ve got an important piece of advice for you: steer clear of this action I’m about to mention.

Let me tell you, if you abuse that tag on Facebook, you can bet your bottom dollar that they’ll catch on and take away your Messenger privileges faster than you can say Jack Robinson!

I want to let you know that Facebook Messenger has a smart way of detecting when someone is breaking the rules. They use machine learning to spot any suspicious activity in the messages and take action if necessary.

It’s important to follow the rules and avoid any risks. That way, you can freely use Messenger message tags without any problems.

Why Are Messenger Tags Important?

Let me explain why Messenger tags are so important. They give you a safe, fast, and effective way to connect with your contacts on a larger scale.

  1. Standard messaging – Within 24 hours of someone reaching out to you, you can send them a message, even if it’s promotional. This is known as the 24+1 rule.
  2. Sponsored messages – You can also use sponsored messages to reach your contacts by paying for a chat blast.
  3. I want to talk to you about subscription messaging. It’s a cool way for businesses to engage with users even after 24 hours have passed. But, there’s a catch – the content should be non-promotional and the business needs to apply and get approved by Facebook.
  4. Let me explain this 24+1 thing. It means that businesses have a limited time and quantity of messages to send.
  5. Now, let’s talk about sponsored messages. These have upfront costs. Advertising ain’t free, you know?
  6. Oh boy, subscription messaging. It’s a bit of a hassle. Getting permission can take a long time and you’ll have to ask repeatedly. Patience is key!
  7. But wait, there’s good news! You can send unlimited messages for as long as you want.
  8. And the best part is, you don’t even need permission for subscription messaging.
  9. And guess what? Facebook doesn’t charge businesses to send messages using any of the 17 message tags. Well, technically 16 if we exclude subscription messaging. That’s a pretty sweet deal!

So many people are using 24+1 responses, subscription messaging, and sponsored messages, but not many are using tags. Do you ever wonder why that is?

My guess is that it seems too complicated – there are so many different tags, and it’s hard to understand what they even mean.

But really, it’s not as complicated as it seems. Using tags is just like putting together a conversation or creating a Messenger drip campaign.

What’s more, using Message Tags means changing how we approach marketing. It’s not just about shouting Buy now! with promotional content.

I want to talk about something important — the process of keeping in touch with people, making sure they are informed and up to date. It’s not always easy, but it’s necessary.

Why do messenger tags matter? Well, they offer a natural and powerful way to connect with your audience without coming across as too pushy or promotional.

What’s Next with Messenger Tags? Here are Some Tips

Facebook Messenger Tags can be a valuable tool for marketers who want to send messages to specific groups of people. Maybe you don’t have subscription messaging or don’t want to spend money on promotions. Or maybe you’re outside of the 24+1 window. Messenger tags can help.

Yes, there are rules to follow. But these rules are actually a good thing. They help you market with a bit of caution, making sure you’re not overwhelming people. Now you have a good understanding of message tags for automating messages in Facebook Messenger.
