In today’s live stream, we’ll be creating a messenger bot using ManyChat. The goal here is to attach the bot to my Beacon Toy app and take it with me when I go grocery shopping. I’ll be collecting contact information from people in the area so I can push coupons and affiliate offers to them via Facebook messenger. Specifically, an app called Ibotta that pays out $20 per signup and just happens to tie into all the grocery stores in my area. Should be a fun little experiment.
