You can use Chatbots to:

How to create a human-like chatbot?

  1. Use nodding gestures and silence breaking words like hmmm, lemme think, wait a minute, hahaha, lol, etc.
  2. When the customer waits for an answer to a specific query, navigate the customer through the other product offers, discounts, suggestions etc.
  3. Engage in simple conversations.
  4. Always keep an alternate solution handy, chatbots may not always answer all questions.
  5. Connect all your Facebook CTA buttons to the chatbot interface. This way you can get more customers diverted to your chatbot.

In what ways a chatbot can help your business?

  • Lead Nurturing – Lead gets generated at any moment in a buying journey. Chatbots nurture leads by maintaining the interest once visitors reach the website and navigate through the webpages. They keep returning to your webpage/content to learn more and that is how leads are nurtured by chatbots.
  • Educating Customers through knowledge sharing – Chatbot algorithms can fetch knowledge data from your data repository and answer your customer’s questions.
  • Chatbots can handle numerous queries – Sometimes your agent may not be able to handle more than one customer query, here chatbots can open up more service lines and promptly respond to numerous queries. This reduces call volume and wait time and lowers operating costs.
  • Chatbots score over e-mails because they reach your customers directly. Most of the e-mails never get opened, so chatbots can reach your customers better than e-mail marketing.
  • Chatbots give a personal touch to your customer conversations.
  • Chatbots have a unique broadcasting feature that allows numerous messages to be sent to multiple users.
