What is the easiest way to make a facebook bot?

I am trying to make a facebook bot which acts like my email newsletter promoter, instead all messages/posts are sent to my subscriber's facebook messenger. Nothing complex, the subscriber needs to opt in, a series of welcome messages will be sent after which I can schedule a series of messages every other day (kind of lead nurturing). I should also have the flexibility to broadcast a single message to all subscribers. Tagging based on my website page visits(dont know if this is even possible) would be great. Am looking for a completely **free** tool, in my opinion upto 25k subscribers should be free after which I would have scaled enough to pay)

    As far as I know ManyChat might be suitable for your needs. Botacademy.com is using it very effectively for the same purpose.They should have a freemium model but pretty sure you'll have "built with Manychat" somewhere then. Another option might be Chatfuel -- I've played around with it quite a lot and it's pretty straightforward.

      I tried to deactivate ManyChat and although it says it's not on my business pages, my customers are STILL receiving messages. After contacting customer service and their messenger "bot" I still can't get anyone to write me back to help. I tried reaching out to the co-founder, so hopefully he can help. I'm very surprised I'm not seeing more posts of more unhappy customers.

    I've made one with this. It was featured on Product Hunt, so you can check my "made" list for it. It's super simple and really straight forward.
