Chatbot marketing is the present and future of marketing. If you’re not all-in with chatbot marketing, run, don’t walk, to get started.

What you’re about to read is the chatbot marketing game-changer — a list of 18 chatbot marketing templates that you can plug-and-play in your business to start driving sales immediately.

The One Chatbot Marketing Essential: Chatbot Builder

Before I show you the what, I must tell you the how.

To use these chatbot marketing templates, you’ll first need to install a chatbot builder such as MobileMonkey.

MobileMonkey uses Facebook Messenger marketing since Messenger is the most widely-used and feature-rich messaging platform available.

With MobileMonkey, you can get started for free in less than five minutes. Plus, you’ll get instant access to each of the chatbot marketing templates described below.

MobileMonkey is designed for small businesses or freelance marketers as well as marketing agencies. With an agency account, your marketing agency can create and sell chatbot marketing to your clients.

You can automatically install any of these chatbot marketing templates in MobileMonkey by clicking Templates → View Templates Library.

Once in the chatbot marketing library, choose your preferred template.

Next, you’ll either add the template to an existing chatbot or start from scratch.

Then, it’s time to start creating your chatbot marketing plan.

Here’s the important thing about these chatbot templates. They can be totally customized to your specific needs.

For example, let’s say you like the chatbot for gyms, but you want to customize it to sell Photoshop actions to amateur photographer moms of newborns.

No prob! You can customize it to whatever chatbot marketing activity you prefer.

Now that you have the best chatbot builder on the market and know exactly how to install each of these chatbot marketing templates, let’s get into them.

1. Chatbot Marketing for Lead Generation

The one-minute lead gen bot is a good starting place, especially if you’re just getting started with chatbot marketing.

The bot is ideal for client-based businesses that want to create more leads that will be followed up by a salesperson.

The pre-built dialogue has three “quick questions.”

  1. Thanks for stopping by! Can I ask for your email address?
  2. Thank you. And what’s the best phone number for us to reach you at?
  3. Thanks again. What can we help you with today?

To answer the first two questions, email address and phone number, all the user has to do is click or tap in response.

Facebook has this information stored in the user’s account. With the input type set to email, it’s simple for them to reply quickly and accurately with their response. The same holds true for the phone number.

You can use this chatbot as a standalone template for lead-generation or you can add it to another dialogue or template.

The salon service industry is one in which scheduling appointments, getting advice, and learning about the salon’s different services can be a huge chatbot marketing advantage.

The chatbot marketing sequence begins with a brief welcome message followed by the store’s logo, then the request to choose a service from a menu.

If a customer chooses the skin care category, for example, they can select from the salon’s different skin care services and schedule an appointment.

This powerful sequence allows agencies to scale, by eliminating clients that have high-churn potential and onboarding clients that have a track record of improving agency profits.

7. Chatbot Marketing for Consultants

One of the biggest groups of Messenger chatbot users is consultants. Often, these are marketing consultants, many of whom sell their own chatbot marketing services.

The chatbot marketing for consultants chatbot is also heavily used by agencies, who often provide chatbot marketing solutions for their clients.

As chatbot marketing bots go, this one is simple and straightforward. Its ability to save time and streamline processes, however, is unparalleled.

The bot launches with a greeting. This can, of course, be customized.

One useful feature of any chatbot is that users’ responses can be saved, allowing you to organize and segment the respondents according to specific categories.

For example, you can create a Messenger contact group of only those users who responded to your consultant welcome question. You can later retarget these people with a specific campaign designed to reengage them.

With the consultant chatbot, you can do the following:

  • Answer basic questions
  • Provide information about your consultancy and services
  • Invite users to free training
  • Provide a signup form for applicants to work with you

There are two types of contests that this bot provides:

  • Comment contests
  • Giveaway contests

With a comment contest, you allow everyone who comments on an organic post in your Facebook group to be automatically entered into the contest.

Chatbot marketing is extremely advantageous for any individual or small team who wants to save time on tasks like scheduling, client onboarding, and answering general questions.

The chatbot marketing bot for health coaches is designed to deliver on each of those fronts. It’s flexible enough to be used for fitness trainers, health coaches, personal coaches, and other professionals providing personalized individual training.

The chatbot is highly interactive, but it’s also designed to elicit as much actionable feedback as early on in the sequence as possible.

Take a look at how this quick back-and-forth has allowed the personal trainer to get the age, weight, and fitness level of a potential client.

All that the user has to do is tap out quick replies.

The trainer bot can then offer additional materials for personal training. It’s important to get the user’s agreement before this happens.

Now that the user is within the intermediate funnel, she or he can select several additional options:

  • Read an inspiring story about a client who increased her fitness level
  • Get a free consultation
  • View a free video about the intermediate training program

This is the intermediate funnel, but the chatbot will provide a different sequence if the user has selected “beginner” or “intermediate” as their fitness level.

Marketing agencies are among the heaviest users of MobileMonkey, and with good reason. MobileMonkey is the premier provider of agency-level chatbot marketing solutions.

Marketing agencies receive a special team plan of MobileMonkey, which includes advanced features for collaboration and rapidly growing Facebook contacts.

Agencies are also invited to apply for inclusion in MobileMonkey’s affiliate program. Affiliates earn a high percentage of the subscription cost for any client that they refer as a MobileMonkey user. In the agency world, this can rack up huge earnings quickly.

All agencies can apply to join MobileMonkey’s certified agency directory, which places them in direct contact with customers who need their services.

Here is the chatbot marketing process that agencies have found to be successful:

A brief opening menu easily invites users to self-select the marketing service they are most interested in.

In this case, the marketing services are Facebook Ads and Messenger marketing, but these can be differentiated or added based on your marketing agency’s specific offering.

Once the potential client goes further down the funnel, the bot responds by gathering additional information.

The more information you can gather about the client, the more successful you can be at onboarding that client.

14. Chatbot Marketing for Podcasts

15. Chatbot Marketing for Real Estate

The real estate chatbot marketing bot is one of the most advanced and built-out. The reason? Real estate agents have to manage a lot of moving parts and paperwork, not to mention in-person meetings, showings, and a legion of other details.

Real estate agents have a large suite of tools at their disposal with the real estate chatbot. Many agents hire personal assistants to manage the avalanche of details that the job demands. If using a chatbot, however, that may not be necessary.

The real estate chatbot is designed to help real estate agents both as seller’s agents or buyer’s agents (including rentals.)

If a real estate agent is offering listing services (i.e., selling a home), then the chatbot will walk the client through a series of questions

  • Is the home currently listed?
  • How soon do you need to sell the home?
  • What is the property address?
  • What is your email address?
  • What is your phone number?

In less than sixty seconds, a potential seller could entrust you with their complete information, allowing you to follow up easily and quickly.

A real estate agent who is selling a home can do the following

  • Display current listings
  • View complete galleries of current listings
  • Schedule a showing

The template for stores is highly adaptable for any retailer but is primarily geared towards brick-and-mortar shops.

Here’s what this chatbot marketing template will do for you:

  • Segment users according to their shopping preference — for example, men’s clothing or women’s clothing
  • Find out what’s on sale
  • Get deals or coupons
  • Sign up for updates
  • Read or leave a review
  • Find out the store hours

18. Chatbot Marketing for Surveys

Surveys are more than just an information-gathering tool. They are also a powerful method of growing your customer base, spreading the word about your business, and amassing a useful pool of contacts.

Facebook Messenger chatbot surveys take the power of online surveys to a whole new level. (Plus, you don’t need to purchase pricey survey software.)

Here are some of the features of surveys using Facebook Messenger:

  • They are easy to fill out and complete
  • By default, they are mobile-friendly
  • They are optimized for a platform that users are already familiar with
  • They have very high engagement rates
  • You can save respondent’s information into lists
  • You can follow up with respondents

The “Quick Survey” tool on MobileMonkey allows you to rapidly assemble a survey. If you just want to copy the survey template, that’s fine, too.

The Survey Bot has three survey types in order to demonstrate the realm of survey capabilities:

  • Health and fitness survey
  • Customer feedback survey
  • Skincare survey

All the surveys are easy for people to complete because they simply require tapping one of the existing options. Plus, we’ve created the survey with a bit of incentivization on the front end so users will be eager to complete it.
