Course Instructor for Messenger Bots: The Basics for Direct Sellers

Hi! I'm Laurie Girardi! Have you heard all the buzz about Messenger bots and thought to yourself, "I'd think I'd better learn how to use them?"

Well, you're in the right place! I am on a personal mission to help direct sellers learn how to leverage smart technology in their businesses to generate leads, increase connections and build relationships.

Messenger bots are one of the newest strategies I recommend you learn and use. When used in smart ways, they can help you build your business quickly. They also provide a system to serve your customers and teams right through Facebook! But, if used poorly, a bot can get you into FB trouble AND harm your relationships. 

In this course, I'll teach you exactly what to do to get your chat bot setup and working for your business. We use Manychat at & the National Direct Selling Registry™ and that's the tool we're teaching here.
