A combination of relentless drive and plenty of hard work turned unfortunate events into opportunities for our FBP 151 guest. This guy with an easy demeanor and bright outlook has also proved himself to be resilient and a fast learner. In 3 years, Neil Reichl has turned from a pharmaceutical sales rep to a ChatBot marketing expert. All the long drives that he made while listening to podcasts when he was still a sales rep turned out to be the training ground for his digital marketing and freelancing career.
Why ChatBot Marketing?
An early adopter of ChatBot marketing, Neil recognized the need for a more effective way of getting leads and engaging with old both old and potential customers. With an even tougher competition now as all types of media are clamoring for a person’s already short attention span, how does a business get their voice heard loud and clear?
With email marketing effectivity slowly dropping (25% open rate, 3% CTR), Neil saw how more people, regardless of age or status, are now more likely to use Facebook Messenger as their main means of communication. It is not surprising that statistics for Facebook Messenger Marketing campaigns show an 89% open rate with a 50-60% CTR. For instance, the reach can be greater too as people who may not follow or “like” your page can still send you a message and contact you on Facebook.
Are you as interested as I am now? I too believe that ChatBot marketing is the next big thing so I signed up for Neil’s ChatBot marketing premium course to learn more about it. If you want to see a ChatBot in action, watch the FBP 151 video to see a demo of how a ChatBot can bring in more leads and convert fans into paying customers.
