Pros: Building a bot is really simple with their pre-made templates and a drag and drop flow diagram. We have been using Activechat to automate skills aka flows for different visitors (leads and vendors) and touchpoints through different growth tools (referral path to trigger skills). Broadcasting to 'tagged' subscribers is also straightforward. A real game changer.0
These are just the basic versions of intelligent chatbots. There are many more intelligent chatbots out there which provide a much more smarter approach to responding to queries. Since the process of making a intelligent chatbot is not a big task, most of us can achieve it with the most basic technical knowledge. Many of which will be very extremely helpful in the service industry and also help provide a better customer experience.
Chatbots utilize natural language processing (NLP) and speech recognition to understand written and spoken requests; businesses can leverage this technology to automate tasks that formerly required human intervention. Based on a request from a user, the chatbot provides the user with an output, which is a response to the request in text or speech form. With the use of machine learning and deep learning, chatbots can grow intelligently and understand a wider vocabulary and colloquial language, as well as provide more precise and correct responses to requests.

Miriam Slozberg is a freelance writer, blogger, and social media content creator who educates others about the realities of mental illness and depression. Because she suffers from depression, she wants the stigma of mental illness to be completely broken and for it to be made known that any kind of mental illness is just as serious as any kind of physical illness. She mostly writes in the parenting niche, is a frequent contributor to BabyGaga, and runs two blogs: at her own site and at Expressive Mom. You can also follow her on Twitter.
Pros: It's system is more advanced comparing with Manychat or Chatfuel (both are like toys if you try Activechat). It has autorresponders of course, but also suitable for flexible AI conversations. Is like coding an advanced chatbot without needing to be a coder. The team is very responsive and their founder Andrii has a clear vision about this project.
Overall: We are now able to leave our Chat on 24/7, when previously we had limited hours (due to staffing) for the Chat. It is still very much a work in progress to ensure the ChatBot has routed to the correct conversations and can sometimes be frustrating to try and figure out why the ChatBot went to a certain scenario over another. The help topics the company provides can point you in the right direction but they are written at a level above the capabilities of a brand new user to bots in my opinion. Determining whether or not no conversation with a client vs a below average conversation with a client (at times) is worth it, will determine whether we continue to renew our monthly subscription.
There is a lot of potential for using chatbots for marketing. For example, it is possible to use Facebook advertising to send users directly to a Messenger chatbot. Users interacting with the chatbot consent to be contacted by the bot at a later point in time. This means that the cost-per-acquisition of Messenger contacts can be much lower than traditional email marketing.

I liked the clarity of Joyable’s approach: It’s intended to only be eight weeks long, so there’s no pressure to continue after it ends (the anxious people pleaser in me likes knowing how much time I’m signing up for and how easy it is to cancel.) And each week, a new themed course is “unlocked,” allowing me the chance to tackle a new set of cognitive-behavior related challenges.
