Since you are here, this means that chatbots have caught your interest. As you might already know, they pack serious power when it comes to engaging your customers, being there for them around the clock, providing a personalized chat experience to them, and being able to learn from their past interactions.
The only obstacle between these benefits and you is creating an AI Chatbot. Fortunately, SnatchBot.me has developed a bot building platform that is easy to use and doesn’t require any technical background, nor coding. Lets see how you can create your AI chatbot and connect it with your Facebook profile.
First You Have to Register
The registration process is very quick and easy; it will take only a moment of your time. This chatbot building platform takes your online privacy and security seriously. Every last byte of data you use in the forms is secure and safe on their network.
After you complete this seamless registration process, you will be able to login, access the Dashboard and start building your first stellar chatbot.
After you find yourself on the Dashboard, you will have to click on the My Bots tab located in the side menu bar on the left portion of your screen. This will open a new field on the right with a Create Bot button.
After you click on the Create Bot button, you will get a popup window where you can enter your basic chatbot description and choose from one of the premade chatbot templates by checking the “Start with template” box.
As you can see, you can choose the language for your chatbot so that you can make the conversation even more delightful for your customers. You can also upload your own Icon that will be displayed next to your bots unique name in Facebook Messenger conversations.
If you don’t have any previous experience, I suggest you go with a pre-defined template. After you choose a template and fill in the fields, you can click on Create Bot. In a few seconds, you will have your first, fully functional bot.

Test and Configure Your Bot
While you are on the same screen, you will notice the button in the upper right corner of your screen – “Test This Bot”. You can click on this button at any time, test your bot in real time, and see if all the interactions in the template are what you need.
In case you want to edit some of the interactions, you can simply go back to your bot screen and choose any of the interactions on the left side of your screen. Changing existing interactions or adding new ones is quite simple. In order to find out how to do so, you can check this detailed step-by-step guide.
Note: if you want to build a powerful chatbot from scratch, the above guide can also help you get familiar with the basic functionalities of this bot building platform. At the start, you will need some more time to get a hold of all the functions and what they do, but as you progress, you will find out that building a bot is quite easy and fast.
When you are done with the bot configuration and testing process, you can proceed to the next step.
Connecting your AI Chatbot to Facebook Messenger
Connecting your new bot to Facebook Messenger is downright simple and easy. All you have to do is open you bot editor and click on Channels, located on the left sidebar. This will open a new screen. The left side labeled “Channels” shows the current channels where your bot is active and on the right, under “Add Another Channel”, you will find Facebook Messenger.
This process is straightforward. All you have to do is follow the setup wizard and you will have your bot up and running on your Facebook Messenger channel in no time. You will soon discover that chatbots are great and that they can really help you boost your marketing efforts on Facebook.
If you use one of the pre-made chatbot templates without editing it, you will basically have an AI chatbot up and running on Facebook Messenger in couple of minutes. As we have mentioned above, you can also edit pre-made chatbots or make new ones from scratch. While these actions may require some time before you are completely comfortable with the terminology and all chatbot building platform features, they don’t require any technical knowledge nor coding skills.
