By doing this, you can assure your customer that you are always available and ready to interact with them.

3) Send a Message

Instead of a Facebook reply to comments, you can also send a direct message. You can include any promotional material such as discounts or coupon codes in a message. Or simply answer any query that the user asks in the comments by sending a relevant article.
