Bot Shop - The bot will appear in our Bot Shop under one of four categories - Entertainment, Fashion & Beauty, Games, or Lifestyle. There is also a “Featured” carousel at the top of the bot shop where up to 6 bots can be featured - these are chosen by our editorial team
Search - Users can search the username to chat with the bot
Bots - Other bots on Kik can direct users to your Bot Shop profile page
Mentions - Users can tap @ to view and draw bots into their conversations on Kik. Users in group chats can see other users mention bots in their conversations, and can organically try the experiences themselves.
Visuals - Include a visual of the actual bot experience, not just your branding. Try to highlight visuals within your bot, instead of showing a screen of text
Wording - Say "Chat with [Brand/Personality] on Kik" vs. "Talk to the [Brand/Personality] bot on Kik" because users might not accept talking to a bot, but accept the idea of chatting with a brand
Relevance - Relate your post to current events or influencers that relate to your bot and your potential users
Kik Codes - At events, on posters, and on desktop users can scan to be placed in a specific state within your bot on Kik (more info about Kik codes found here)
