Messenger Bot Marketing - How Much are People Paying?
Mar 12, 2018
How much chatbot developers charge for Facebook Messenger bots?
I can tell about our experience building bots. From January 2017 to February 2018 we and our partners built around 90 Facebook Messenger chatbots.
Please note the chatbot developers are often based outside of the United States, in Canada, Israel, Singapore and European countries like Ukraine, Austria and France.
This is how much chatbot development agencies at botmakers.netmarketplace usually charge for the design, development, testing and training.
Chatbots that don’t require coding built using platforms like Chatfuel, Manychat and similar.
Chatfuel Facebook Messenger chatbots + Zapier. Still no coding, but a few Zapier integrations like Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Forms, Google Sheets add some complexity.
Chatfuel chatbots + custom backend. A little bit of coding, usually bots like that are done in less then 1–2 weeks.
Chatbots with a more complex backend, often integrated with some existing systems and databases. Usually, are done by a team of 2–3 people.
More advanced chatbots connected to a few third-party integrations. Often used with CRM and sales tools like Microsoft Dynamics
CRM, ClickFunnels, HubSpot, MailChimp, Marketo, Infusionsoft and eCommerce platforms like Squarespace, WooCommerce, Magento, BigCommerce, Unbounce.
AI customer support and customer service chatbots. Usually, bots like that automate 20–50 frequently asked questions (FAQs). Used with sales and customer service tools like Intercom, Olark, Zendesk, Help Scout.
AI chatbots for small and mid-size enterprises that require a team of 4–6 team members. Projects like that take at least 2–3 months to implement and a chatbot always just a part of a bigger system, with custom dashboards, webviews, etc.
Too Expensive? Use Bot Templates
If you don’t want to create a chatbot from scratch and pay for the complete software development cycle consider pre-built Messenger bot templates available on botmakers.net marketplace.
You will launch a fully featured bot in just a few hours.
No coding required. Customize your chatbot without developers.
600+ integrations are available with Zapier.
If needed you can always ask a developer who provided the template to help you for an extra fee.
A developer’s license is available if you plan to resell bots created from a template.
