Sending a Message to Multiple Members at Once on Facebook
Would you like to contact thousands of people per day through messenger? Today you will discover a magnificent tool to send mass messages on Facebook.
You don’t have enough budget for advertising on Facebook Ads and you can’t deliver your message. The first thing marketers do is send direct messages to qualified prospects.
It would be great to mass message Facebook in automation, however. This is what you certainly think and this is why you are on this page.
In this tutorial, we will decipher one of the best tools to mass message people on Facebook using automation. You will naturally need to target potential clients, as it would be useless to send messages randomly to everyone.
How to Find Qualified Prospects on Facebook? How to Build a List of Targeted People?
Before getting your hands on the tool, you need to find your potential clients, which is to say, the people that will receive your message. The purpose of this article is not to explain what your buyer persona is, we assume you already know who your potential customers are. On Facebook, the easiest way to find them is in groups.
Below, you will see and example of a Facebook search. I entered the keyword “fitness”. Then I filter the results by “group” using the left side menu.
There are millions of Facebook groups with thousands of members. You first need to create a list of groups related to your activity or niche. The goal is to send messages to the members of these particular groups.
Once you’ve found your targeted groups, copy and paste their URL in a Google spreadsheet. Don’t forget to join them, otherwise you may not be able to contact their members.
Since contacting manually every single members of your targeted groups would take long (days, weerks or even months), you are certainly looking for an automation robot to do the hard work for you. This sort of robot is very rare as Facebook can easily detect them. The platform regularly updates its algorithm to block them or simply block your account.
But let’s suppose you found this perfect tool. After 20 or 30 messages, Facebook identifies you as a spammer and within seconds you will receive a warning message. You will then find yourself unable to send messages directly, as Facebook will deactivate this function.
How to Send Thousands of Messages to Facebook Users Without Being Blocked?
1. Using an Old Facebook Account
If you create several fake Facebook accounts in order to scale your mass messaging campaign, Facebook won’t take long to remove your brand new accounts if it notices a suspicious amount of messages sent daily.
For some years now, Facebook and other platforms have been strongly fighting against fake users. When you create a new Facebook account, Facebook puts your new account in some kind of “box”. We will call it the “Suspicious Account box”.
Facebook will study the behavior of your account to see if it is a robot or someone trying to spam or promote something massively.
2. Infiltration Period for New Accounts
We are sorry to tell you this, but you will have to wait at least 3 months before mass messaging people from your new Facebook account. However, it’s not about creating a fake account and waiting idly for 3 months. You must make it look like a normal human account by publishing regular posts, liking other users’ posts, commenting, inviting a few people, and performing all the simple actions a normal human would do. Let’s call this stage the “infiltration”.
It will also mean completing all the profiles of your fake accounts. Giving each of them a personality so as to resemble a real human being (profile picture, bio, birthdate, etc.).
3. The Message Limit per Day
There’s no real consensus on this restriction, but it may seem that Facebook won’t allow any account to send more than 30 direct messages to other people. Some accounts may send 30 messages and don’t get flagged, whereas others may get an immediate warning. We are sure the only ones authorized to break this rule are Mark Zuckerberg and other Facebook managers.
A perfect way to dodge this limitation is to use several Facebook accounts.
To be as discreet as possible, you will have to send 20 messages maximum per day. If your goal is to send 1000 messages per day (to a 1000 people), you will need 50 Facebook accounts.
4. The Riskiest, the Most Expensive and the Most Complicated Way to Automate Mass Messaging on Facebook
Before describing the best way to automate mass messaging on Facebook, we will briefly explain the most common method Growth hackers use.
One way is through a software. You install it on a Windows server or cloud-based. Since you can’t automate 50 fake Facebook accounts from the same computer with the same IP (it would look suspicious), you have to use some proxies or VPS. That’s why this method could be costly if you plan to scale your automation with 50 Facebook accounts. You can use 1 proxy for 3 Facebook accounts, meaning that you will have to pay for approximately 17 proxies if you plan to automate 50 accounts. Do not consider using free proxies, as they are blacklisted by Facebook.
This method can be also difficult for “non-technical” marketers, because you need to configure software for 50 accounts with 17 proxies. Not everyone has the skills to do that.
And the most important part is the risk to be banned or the work-load of replying to your leads. Imagine you succeed at configuring your software for 50 accounts with 17 proxies or VPS. Then you manage to send 1000 messages per day to Facebook group members. You will certainly get some replies from these users. A lot of them will request more information regarding your message or they will just simply start a conversation.
How would you reply in this particular case? You won’t have any other choice than to log in to your VPS or/and your software, and then sign up to the appropriate Facebook accounts in order to reply from the same IP and same computer that were used to send the message. You can read more about this problem in our article “The Future of Social Networks Automation“. It isn’t really productive or even efficient to reply to your leads with this kind of method.

6.2 Configure the “Send Message to Facebook Group Members” Task on PhoneBot
Once you have downloaded, installed and correctly activated the PhoneBot software on your computer, you need to create a campaign and configure the desired task.
- On the PhoneBot dashboard, create a campaign and name it.
You can pick any name you want. Remember that a campaign is composed of one or several tasks.
- Then choose the desired task. In this case, select “Facebook Group Members” under Cold Messaging.
Another way to access the task is by using the left menu. There you will find all the tasks sorted by categories and platforms.
Make sure to choose the right task. If you accidentally click on the wrong one, you can unselect it at any time.
THE MESSAGE DAILY LIMIT
Once you land on the task page, you can start configuring all the details of the specific task.
As mentioned before, the message limit per day is a detail that should never be disregarded. We strongly recommend keeping to the PhoneBot limit of 15 messages per day.
Provide PhoneBot a Google spreadsheet containing the URLs of your targeted Facebook groups. We have previously discussed how to find potential leads on Facebook using the Facebook search tool. All you need to do is copy and paste the URL of your spreadsheet in the designated area.
Next choose the kind of message you prefer. PhoneBot proposes two types of messages: text and voice messages. In either case, you must set a specific series (until reply or without interruption). Keep in mind that you can write up to 4 messages.
If you want to send just one message, fill in the first text field. To send only two, complete the first and second text fields, and so forth.
For further and more detailed information regarding the message customization, please refer to this tutorial.
ENABLE TASK AND CAMPAIGN
Once you’ve created your messages, do not forget to save your configuration and enable your campaign.
Then, enable your campaign on the Campaigns page.
7. Run PhoneBot to Mass Message Group Members on Facebook
To execute the campaigns, you need to use the PhoneBot software already installed on your Computer.
You can run your tasks from any of the first two tabs of the PhoneBot software (see image below). The first tab enables you to execute your whole campaign, which is to say, all the tasks configured in a particular campaign; whereas the second tab allows you to execute one specific task from a campaign. Make sure to choose the right campaign and device. Then just click on “Run”.
For further and more detailed information on the campaign and task execution, please refer to this detailed tutorial.
8. How to Scale PhoneBot? How to Send 1000 Messages per Day to Facebook Users?
There are 2 possibilities to increase the number of messages per day :
- Buying Another PhoneBot License
As explained before, you need 50 accounts to send 1000 messages per day. Our Gold license allows you to connect up to 10 smartphones. That means you can automate 10 Facebook accounts. You will need to buy 5 Gold licenses to reach 50 Facebook accounts. It also means you will need 5 computers, as you can’t connect more than 10 smartphones per computer.
- Developing an Affiliate Network
If you create an affiliate program for your products or services, you will work with affiliates. You can ask them to invest in a PhoneBot Bronze license (for 1 smartphone) in order to automate their work, or you can buy them the license. Imagine you manage to hire 100 affiliates that will automate the mass messaging task to promote your business. That’s what rapid growth looks like!
