Today we’re excited to announce the launch of Messenger’s first ‘bot makeover contest’ for small businesses in partnership with bot development platform ManyChat. The contest is part of our efforts to support and empower small businesses using Messenger to reach their community and drive business results.
Three winners* will receive a makeover to their Messenger experience – whether they already have a bot or not – courtesy of ManyChat, along with consultation from our team of Messenger experts here at Facebook. Each winner will also receive $5,000 in ad credits to be used to drive discovery of their new and improved Messenger experience. Submissions are open from November 20, 2017 through Monday, December 4, 2017 at 8:00pm PST/11:00pm EST, with the winners being announced in mid-December.
