Facebook Opt-Ins

Updated by Raquel Bartolome

There are two basic HTML elements designed to bring your bot more traffic from outside sources. These elements are as follows:

​Send to Messenger Plugin
This element gives you code to create a button on your site, or wherever you choose to install it, that sends people who click it to a specified Dialogue in your bot. To learn about installing the send to messenger plugin, click this monkey: 🐒​
Checkbox Plugin:
The checkbox plugin allows you to insert code into a website signup form that creates a checkbox. If someone checks the box when signing up, they are opted into your company messages. To learn about installing checkbox plugins, click this unicorn: 🦄​​
NOTE: As of February 2018, the check in the checkbox plugin is no longer automatically checked off, due to Facebook guidelines. This dramatically affects the effectiveness of this tool.

These elements are a very valuable tool for lead generation, so be sure to try them out!

Installation Guide for Checkbox Plugin:

  • Copy provided <script>
  • Paste the script to page source code, typically used in <form> element
  • Find <div> of element that will be used as submit, typically <button> element
  • Paste attribute to button element onclick="confirmOptIn()"
  • Add domain to the whitelist

Example of sumbit button:

<button type="submit" name="add" id="AddToCart" class="btn AddToCart btn-success AddToCart_hide_button" onclick="confirmOptIn()"><span id="AddToCartText">BUY NOW</span>
