ManyChat is a great and super easy tool to create a bot for your Facebook page. These bots can answer questions and collect information from leads and customers. In this guide, you'll learn how to send out unique codes to your subscribers using Coupon Carrier and Zapier.
Coupon Carrier is a service for distributing unique codes, mainly over emails, but we also support sharing codes via links and Zapier.
Being able to give the ManyChat subscriber a unique code as a thank or incentive for starting a conversation is something that we've received a lot of requests for. So we've now added support for fetching unique codes from your Coupon Carrier code lists by supplying a unique user id.
ManyChat integrates with Zapier, and you can trigger a Zap action in buttons or events from your ManyChat messages or automations at different places. This requires a ManyChat Pro account.
In this example, we're going to create a broadcast post that asks the subscriber if they'd like to receive a code. If they click the button "Yes Please!" we trigger a Zap action that will pick a unique code from Coupon Carrier and then send that to the subscriber.
If you haven't already, create a Coupon Carrier account. After signing in for the first time, we create a sample code list for you containing a few unique codes. If you want to, you can import your own set of codes at this stage or use the sample codes for now. Here's a guide on how to import your codes.
Login to your Zapier account and go to the Connected Accounts tab. Here you can search and connect to different services. Let's add ManyChat and Coupon Carrier.
Make sure that you've connected both your ManyChat (pro) and Coupon Carrier account to Zapier before proceeding.
Let's create a new broadcast in ManyChat that we'll use as an example. Log in to your ManyChat account and go to Broadcasting in the menu bar. Click New Broadcast.
Add some text to the first message to ask the subscriber if they'd like to receive a code from us.
Then we add a button with the text "Yes, Please!". On this button, you can choose to add an action when it's clicked. We want to trigger a Zapier event when the subscribers click this button. So let's add an event give-code and choose to create the new event if it doesn't exist.
You can now do a quick preview to make sure that the message works. The preview will be sent to the messenger user used for your ManyChat account.
We've now created the content, and we can now proceed to Zapier.com and create our Zap.
This is one way of using Zapier and Coupon Carrier together with ManyChat. There is an endless amount of things you can do with this. If you have an e-commerce store like Shopify or WooCommerce, then Coupon Carrier can generate new codes automatically for you. This gives you the possibility to send out freshly created discount codes, with an expiry date, to ManyChat subscribers.
