Step one

Log in to The Bot Platform

If you don’t have a login for The Bot Platform, make sure you contact the Sales team at sales@thebotplatform.com

Step two

Connect up your Facebook account

When you first login to your account, you will be asked to connect it to Facebook. We need this to power the bot; it will not post anything to your profile. You should sign in with an account that has admin access to the Facebook page to which you want the bot to be connected. You can find out more about this process here.

Step three

Select your page

Pick which page you’d like to connect a bot to. If you are just testing it out, we’d recommend you use a dummy facebook page rather than your main one, at least until you are ready to go live.

If there is an error, make sure you are an admin of the Facebook page you are trying to connect to (under the Facebook page settings > Page roles).

Step four

Pick your template

We’ve a wide range of templates based on what we’ve learnt about how people interact with bots and the best way to engage with an audience at scale. Alternatively press skip and start from scratch.

Step five

Get building

You are now ready to start building your bot! You can check out more of the help docs in this section to help you along or message us on Intercom (the small blue widget in the bottom right corner of the platform). Once you're ready to launch, check out this guide on how to promote your bot.
