The Secret Behind Facebook Messenger Marketing, 5 Best Practices for Better ROI

While chatbot marketing in Facebook Messenger is a new marketing discipline, we aren’t executing campaigns in the Wild West. With Facebook Messenger marketing best practices in place, the reward is audience engagement to the tune of 80% engagement rates. Chatbots done well delight customers and streamline purchasing. If you think chatbots can help your business, there aren’t too many Messenger marketing playbooks available. When you’re looking for guidance and best practices in the uncharted territory of Facebook Messenger marketing, you can start here. Facebook Messenger Marketing Here are five rules for marketing on Facebook Messenger. 1. Using Facebook’s One-Free-Reply Rule What’s the One-Free-Reply Rule? When someone messages your chatbot, you’re allowed one free reply. If they, in turn, reply to your reply, they’re opting in to receive follow-up messaging from your business. Knowing this rule, a feature like a post comment autoresponder is useful. A Facebook post autoresponder automatically replies to comments on your post with an invitation that can help you grow your Messenger contact list. It works best to entice people to comment with your post. A riddle like this works great: After people comment on the post, our chatbot automatically replies with the following message: It’s a win-win: they get the answer, and we have a new contact added to our Facebook Messenger marketing list. 2. Introducing Yourself As with traditional email marketing, it’s best to remind people right off the bat who you are and why you’re contacting them. This can be done with a quick welcome message where you re-introduce yourself and confirm their interest in receiving messages. 3. Giving Users the Option to Unsubscribe Here’s another best practice from email marketing that applies to your Facebook Messenger marketing: Always end chats with a reminder that they can unsubscribe any time. There’s no actual rule from Facebook that you should do this, but it will save a lot of trouble. If someone doesn’t want to receive messages from your business and there’s no clear reminder that they can unsubscribe, they may choose to complain and report you to Facebook. Avoidable. Just a quick reminder that they can type UNSUBSCRIBE or STOP keeps communication flowing. 4. Using Facebook’s 24-1 Rule Once someone has opted…

Is There a Religious Exemption for Employee Healthcare Coverage?

While most small businesses aren’t required to provide healthcare benefits to their employees, many choose to do so in order to attract and retain the best employees. However, even if you don’t need to offer health insurance to your employees, once you do, federal law prohibits you from discriminating in your health benefits coverage based on an employee or dependent’s gender, race, age, national origin, religion, or disability, and many states and local municipalities also prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. But what if some of the healthcare choices made by your employees conflict with your religious beliefs? Could you end up paying for care and procedures you don’t agree with? Or are there religious exemptions to your employees’ health care benefits? Closely Held, Sincerely Held In 2014, the Supreme Court ruled that, even under Obamacare, some employers were not required to provide post-conception contraception to employees. The decision was limited to “closely held corporations” which are each owned by a single person or family, whose “sincerely held religious beliefs” are opposed to certain types of contraception that they believe cause abortions, even though the Affordable Care Act contained a contraception mandate requiring employers’ healthcare plans to cover those costs. Given the Trump administration’s attacks on the ACA, coupled with its addition of Justice Neil Gorsuch and possible addition of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, many women’s rights groups are wondering whether that exemption could be extended to more corporations, companies, and small businesses, and LGBTQ groups wondering whether the rationale for denying certain contraceptive care could be extended to healthcare services for transgender employees. Pre-Existing Conditions and Rights Currently, the Affordable Care Act bans healthcare providers from considering being transgender as a pre-existing condition. Previously, transgender people could be denied health insurance simply because they were transgender. So, as it stands, employers who are required to provide health benefits to their employees can’t discriminate in coverage for LGTBQ employees, even for religious reasons. But that could all change, depending on new court cases and state statutes. To learn more about your rights and responsibilities as a…
