In today’s article… I will introduce you to your Facebook Messenger’s best friend! It will be hard to work with messenger without this hereafter.
Here’s my opinion of Pepper which is a Google Chrome extension designed to automate your Facebook marketing. I have been using Pepper for a while now, so I wanted to tell you what I thought about this very useful product.
What is Pepper?
Do you use Facebook to find new clients for your business? If you do then this could be a very interesting app for you. The way that Facebook is organized makes it pretty laborious to identify potential clients, send out friend requests and respond in the correct way when they accept your request.
Most people will do this manually which is time consuming and often things will slip through the cracks unless you have a good system in place (such as sticky notes) to keep track of where you are with each lead.
There are a lot of applications for Facebook out there that claim that they can automate almost anything but I have found that these fall short in a couple of areas:
- You run the risk of sending red flags to Facebook and having your account suspended or even banned
- These apps never complete the whole job for you – I have yet to find a Facebook app that did everything that I wanted until now
Although a Facebook application will probably let you set activity limits, there is always the danger that you will make a mistake with this and the app will create a level of activity that will prompt Facebook to respond in a negative way. Can you imagine losing your Facebook profile? It is just unthinkable!
With Pepper, it doesn’t matter what you do it will never exceed transaction limits. This is built into the application and you can’t change it. Sometimes you just need protection from yourself.
The other frustrating thing I have found with the various Facebook apps available is that they only perform part of the overall task. You then have to look for another app that will do something else that you want to achieve and of course the two apps won’t talk to each other.
Pepper does everything that you need to organically find your prospects and help turn them into potential clients. It will save you a lot of time performing unnecessary manual tasks so that you can focus on the calls that will convert your prospects into clients.
