From: Paul Baron
Dear fellow Amazon seller,
A few weeks ago I was at a dinner party with some friends of mine who also sell on Amazon.
After a great dinner, and some of the best wine I've ever tasted, we started talking about business.
Specifically, how to get reviews.
As you already know, positive verified reviews are the key ingredient to getting higher rankings and more sales.
So it’s always been a hot topic. But ever since Amazon decided to change the rules and kill some of the widely used strategies and techniques, the topic became even hotter among sellers.
At this dinner party I expected to hear some new, fresh ideas and new approaches on how to get reviews.
I quickly became disappointed.
Instead of sharing their ideas, strategies, concepts, everyone kept whining about the latest Amazon changes, how it was much easier back then, etc.
They went on, and on, and on, and I just sat there, listening to them.
Finally, one of them asked me: “Paul, what about you? You seem to be okay with all these changes?”
"No way, you're lying", they said.
"You just had too much wine", they'd laugh.
At that moment I opened my laptop and showed them numbers from two of my products.
Their laughter and disbelief then turned into sobering amazement.
Here’s the screenshot of a listing, taken before I implemented my “secret”:
As you can see my product had 953 reviews on June 4th.
Now take a look at a screenshot taken two weeks after I implemented my system:
1,065 reviews on June 18th.
If you do your math you’ll see I got 8 reviews PER DAY. And I’m still getting them.
This one had even better results. Here’s the screenshot before my system is implemented:
1,237 5-star reviews on June 4th.
Now, after the system is activated:
1,377 5-star reviews on June 18th.
That’s 10 5-star reviews PER DAY!
You can see why they BEGGED me to share my “secret” with them.
I did, but only after each of them wrote a nice big check to my name. :)
But for you, because you’re a member of the Amazing tribe, I’m sharing my “secret” for much less than they paid me.
But what is a “Messenger Chatbot?”
All jargon and technical mumbo-jumbo aside, a Messenger Chatbot is a series of predefined messages that are sent to a subscriber based on his/her activities within Facebook Messenger.
These predefined messages are called “flows.”
(Example of a simple flow created in ManyChat)
And even though this might sound a bit scary, here’s a simple example of how it all works:
Let’s say that you sell some kind of kitchenware.
And to everyone who buys it, you give a free eBook with delicious recipes as a bonus. To get that bonus, your customer just needs to send a message to your FB page, or to comment on a specific post with “Got it!”
Now, here’s where the fun starts.
Once a chatbot software gets triggered by that action, your customer will start getting a series of predefined messages, designed with the end goal to get them to leave a review.
Something like this:
Chatbot: Hi, this is Michael from Kitchenware Kittens. Thank you for purchasing one of our products. As a gift, we’re sending you a free recipe book filled with delicious meals you can prepare for you and your family. Would you like me to send you a download link?
Customer clicks YES.
Chatbot: Great. Here’s the link to download your free recipe book. I’d like to ask you something, if that’s OK?
Customers clicks YES.
Chatbot: How satisfied are you with our product?
(Great; Very much; Meh; Not really; Not at all)
And now, based on your customer’s response, you can either ask them to leave a review on Amazon, or to ask them why they don’t like it, etc.
This is an example of a simple flow that I made up right now as I’m writing this.
It’s that easy. (Once you know and understand how to do it, of course.)
And if all this sounds familiar to you, that’s because it is.
This is very similar to what you can do with emails. So, the question is, why am I making a big deal out of this?
You see, even though email is still a powerful channel (and you should have it as a part of your marketing mix), it’s not what it used to be.
From year to year, the open rates and click-through rates are dropping.
20, 15, even 10 years ago you could get a high open rate with emails - high as much as 80%.
Now, you’re considered an email marketing genius if you can pull off 25-30% open rate.
Compare those stats with this:
That’s right. 97-100% open rate and over 70% click-through rate from a messenger chatbot!
Can you imagine it?
Using the chatbots now is the equivalent of using email in the 90s and early 00s.
And despite some critics, messenger chatbots are NOT a current trend that will fade away.
Currently, there are over 1.2 BILLION people using Facebook Messenger on a daily basis. And that number constantly grows. There are even some projections stating that Messenger will become the world’s single largest marketing channel in the next 3-5 years!
Plus, Facebook constantly releases new updates to this platform and invests billions of dollars into AI (artificial intelligence), which only means that we’re going to see:
Mark my words (that are based on data and experience)…
Chatbots are here to STAY!
Now, the big question is...
My short answer is… YES.
I’ve been an Amazon seller since 2015. I have a $100k+ per month Amazon business.
So do my friends, Ben and Nate.
In all this time, with all the resources we have, we’ve never seen anything work as good as Messenger Chatbots.
You already saw my results with chatbots.
And the good news is that this is 100% compliant with all Amazon’s terms of service.
Also, and this is a big one...
Which is great when you know that Amazon already killed some of the best and most effective ways to get reviews.
Things like incentivized reviews, discount coupons, etc.
This won’t happen with chatbots.
How can I make such a claim?
Simply because using a chatbot isn’t some hack, or trick, or loophole. This is a strategic automation of a legitimate way to get reviews - asking satisfied customers to do it.
Now, with all this being said, there are two big misconceptions with Amazon sellers when it comes to chatbots:
Luckily for you, none of these are true.
Although chatbots sound like something high-tech, they’re just a series of predefined messages sent based on certain actions.
YOU. CAN. DO IT!
So, let’s sum it up:
These numbers are growing, and people actually prefer using and communicating over FB Messenger more than they do over email.
These days, we’re happy if we get a 20% open rate on our emails. With 25-30% you’re doing GREAT. But with chatbots we’re seeing open rates constantly going over 90% with 60%+ click rates.
Plus, email didn’t have 1.2B users in the 90s. Messenger does.
We’re talking about an automation of a process. Not some tricks, hacks or black-hat stuff that work today but could get your account blocked tomorrow.
And because you’re automating a legit process, you’re safe from the upcoming changes.
Getting reviews is just one of the many chatbot applications you can use to grow your business. And once you learn the logic and the strategy behind a chatbot flow and how to effectively create them, only sky's the limit for your business.
You don’t need an expensive developer, or a complex software. We do this with some very affordable and easy to use tools like ManyChat or MsgHero.
And since we can’t cover everything on such a small page like this one, Ben, Nathan, and myself decided to accept the invitation and hop on a call with Mike McClary to do a workshop called...

That’s 1/5 the price that most people have paid for their new iPhone X.
And unlike that iPhone (that’s costing you money every month), this workshop (knowledge, experience, expertise and a shortcut plan) can grow your business and bring you money, almost completely on autopilot.
Go through the entire training. As many times as you want.
Implement the strategies and templates that we’re giving you.
If you’re not absolutely thrilled with how they work for your business, just contact us, and we’ll get you your money back.
If you feel you did not get value from this, you shouldn’t have to pay. Period.
As you can see, all risk is on us on this. That’s how confident we are that you’ll be thrilled with this workshop, and the results you’ll see from this.
You have three choices from here (all three are 100% valid, btw):
1. Do nothing
You can completely ignore the facts you saw here.
You can continue with what you’re doing right now and skip this incredible opportunity to build an automated system that brings you leads, sales, and reviews.
And you can sit and wait for your competitors to start using this. And they will!
2. Try to figure out everything on your own
You can spend money, time, and energy to learn and discover everything on your own.
You can make your own mistakes, trying to make it work.
You can even take the free course that ManyChat offers on their website.
But keep in mind that ManyChat’s goal is to sell you on their tool. Ours it is to help you make chatbots work for you and your business.
ManyChat’s free course isn’t focused on Amazon and the producers of that course are not Amazon sellers. We are.
But you’re free to try. Just be cautious.
And if want to take the guessing and the risk out of the picture, you can...
3. Use our proven step-by-step system AND our flows, funnels, and scripts that we personally use to build an automated system to get leads, sales, and reviews and avoid making mistakes and wasting time and money.
