What are click-to-Messenger Ads?

Facebook Click-to-Messenger Ads are a fantastic way to get new users into your Facebook Messenger Bot. They appear as normal Ads on Facebook, Instagram and the Messenger home screen. Instead of leading the user to a landing a page, a Message is sent from the Ads Manager to the user, which can then result in an interaction with the bot.

Time needed: 15 minutes.
