We create a bot in Telegram without programming. Step by Step Instructions (Part 1)

A little over 5 years have passed since the creation of Telegram. And every day, this communication system is gaining more and more popularity. Telegram is a cross between a messenger and a social network. In it you can communicate, as in Skype, as well as conduct channels, as in Instagram, for example.

Channels in Telegram, as in any social network, can be monetized under certain conditions, one of which is a large number of subscribers. And subscribers, in turn, are guaranteed to your channel in the presence of popular and interesting content.

If social media content in groups is created manually, then Telegram is one step ahead in this matter. Since all the work related to the search for information and its publication on the channel can be transferred to the bot. And most importantly, you can create it yourself, for free! At the same time, you don’t even need any programming skills.

In this instruction, we will tell you how quickly, simply and easily a bot is created that posts news on a channel in & nbsp; Telegram. And even if you just turned on the computer yesterday, you handle it! After all, we accompanied the instructions with screenshots.
