Pull relevant information from existing content by training your messaging bot. 

There are times when customers are not willing to read long content to find solutions to their problems, they want a short and quick answer. That’s where repurposing can help. 

Brands can take the help of a conversational approach to content promotion, they can 

revive a part from the existing content which answers the user’s query satisfactorily. 

For example, the users ask the bot

“Can I create bots for WhatsApp as well?”

The bot then pulls out a paragraph from the existing content to answer the query. It might be the bullet points of the youtube video, but it must satisfy the query of the consumers. 

This method allows your consumers to have access to the best content and just the most recent ones. 

However, the social media boy requires training for pulling out relevant information from the existing content.

Except for segmentation and repurposing your content brands can make use of social messaging Apps to let them find the most relevant ones themselves. 

For example, brands can use Facebook 

Messenger chatbots help their followers find products using emojis. 

As soon as someone sends a text, the chatbots pull out emoji related to it. 

Content slider ( along with images and a small description can be sent so that the consumers can scroll through it and pick the ones they like. 

Brands must understand that letting consumers find products via text messages might be difficult and create confusion. They won’t be able to see a preview or a slider to choose the most relevant content. This will lead to several back-and-forth clicks destroying the user experience. 

However, brands can ask a few more questions, so that you understand their needs and deliver them the best content. 

Understanding what their customers need is the key to bulk SMS marketing. Short SMS is direct and precise, this is the reason why they should be appropriately typed and sent at the time.

For example, your business is in the food industry. The consumer requests a vegan recipe. Don’t hesitate to ask them about their choices, soup, fast food, smoothie, salad, etc. After receiving their response send further relevant content. 


Content marketing is helpful for prospective customers to find out about your business. The more relevant your content is the more it is good for your business as the consumers stay with you. Brands must share timely updates with their consumers and social media to build trust and nurture them.
