4. Chatbots make friends and build relationships: Most companies wish their agents had more time to make outbound, proactive contact with their customers. Chatbots are there to help, and in some ways, they are revolutionizing the way brands stay in touch with their customers. Whether it’s a simple email or text on a customer’s birthday, or a quick check-in to ask if they are enjoying the brand’s product or service, chatbots are helping to foster brand loyalty. Devine says, “This may sound counterintuitive, but the most sophisticated chatbots can provide a more human experience than an actual human. They don’t have bad days and they don’t get frustrated by typical customers.”
Acobot is an artificial intelligence tool. It works to engage customers, answer questions, and produce sales. Acobot generates leads from your website by asking visitors for their email address or telephone number straightforwardly. More importantly, it helps you achieve conversion rate optimization by nudging visitors to act as you expect with interactive call to actions at the right points. Acobot is fully automated. It does all the job and continuously optimizes the conversion rate by itself. The longer it works for you, the more results it delivers to you.
Pros: Very effective and increase in the number of leads. We have implemented chatbots to our client websites and definitely, there is a difference in the stats. The client is happy and we are very happy. It is easy to customize, with the common questions. And chatbot somehow keeps the audience engaged. Since it is real time people actually like it and you get a response, always.
I like that Botengine platform is easy to use,thereby making it easy to create our chat bot in a matter of minutes,and with as much minimal support as possible from the software development team. Botengine is so simple to use,that it was created and deployed by myself and team members at the marketing team,despite not coming from a technical background.
Cons: Initial onboarding is wonky and can use UX upgrades. It was difficult understanding how to get started until I watched several videos. I also had issues using this platform on Firefox to connect Facebook messenger. Currently, the workaround is to use Chrome to connect messenger and then you can continue working on Firefox. I don't like having to use a different browser to obtain functionality. The team promised this was a bug that will be ivnestigated

Cons: Botengine has reduced the workload on the helpdesk department . However ,I fear we may come one day have an advanced Botengine ,years down the line ; which is able to respond to the current complex queries we respond to and thus when that day comes , why would my employer keep me at the job ,when a Bot can do a better job ,without ever getting tired?

I was also excited to see some yoga poses in my toolkit!
