Chatbot Like and Share Campaign - Kath Clarke
< All Topics


This article provides you with the instructions and information you need to create and launch a Chatbot Like and Share campaign.

A Chatbot Like and Share campaign consists of creating a simple Facebook competition that encourages people to like and share a post to win a prize, using a chatbot. The chatbot will pop up in the Facebook messenger every time someone comments on the post asking them to confirm their entry and will provide people with the opportunity to provide their email address or contact details in exchange for an offer, e.g. extra entries into the competition.
This will allow you to promote and increase brand awareness on Facebook while building your database at the same time.

The Chatbot Like and Share Campaign is the perfect tool for brick and mortar businesses or those with tangible product/service they can give away to attract their desired avatar.


  • How to create a like campaign aligned with your 1:1:1

  • How to create your first chatbot

  • How to create a sequence that captures leads name, email and phone numbers (optional)

  • How to connect your chatbot to your like and share the competition post


Before you start you need to

  • Decide on a giveaway/prize for your competition

  • Sign up for a Chatfuel account

  • Have a Facebook Business Page. Chatbots will not connect to a personal profile

    Here are our tips for coming up with a great prize your avatar will be drawn to.

    • Keep the prize between $50 – $200

    • Make sure the prize aligns with your 1:1:1 to ensure you are attracting the right people

    • Make the prize positive, tangible and shareable. People will only share and tag people if they want the prize or can feel good about sharing it. If you are giving away a 7 Day Smoothie bundle, it’s more enticing for people to enter and tag people in a competition to win 7 Days of Delicious Nutritious Smoothies rather than 7 Day Pack of Weight Watchers Instant Meals. Focus on the positive!

    • Don’t create a prize that people don’t understand or requires a lot of explaining. If you can’t summarise the prize in a sentence or a couple of bullet points, then rethink the prize

    • If you have an intangible product or service team up with another business to offer a better prize.

    • Don’t overvalue the prize; people will think it’s a scam.

    • Keep the prize aligned with your core business offerings to avoid confusion. For example, you are a mortgage broker then don’t offer a free haircut, offer something house or finance related.

    • Think of something you can remarket to people or give away as a voucher as a ‘thanks for entering’ prize. For example, if you run classes, your prize could be a double pass to a class. Everyone who then enters could receive a runner up prize or offer that is a discount off their first class.
