Chatbots are no longer ‘the next big thing’ in web design. Everyone from insurance agents to people selling products online have chatbots answering queries on their site. Here are five reasons why a chatbot should be part of your website design:
- They’re Getting Smarter
Thanks to machine learning and artificial intelligence, chatbots have become a lot smarter and faster than they were 10 years ago. Business owners who are worried that a chatbot won’t be able to accurately chat with website visitors will be amazed at what can be achieved via chatbots in 2019.
- Help To Generate Leads For Your Business
If a website visitor is browsing your website, and he/she is uncertain about anything from warranties to after-sales support, a chatbot can help dispel any fears or answer any questions he/she might have. In this way, a chatbot becomes part of your sales funnel and can generate leads for your business.
- Acts As A Conversational Agent
People do business with people. The way that chatbots interact with website visitors is very similar to how a call centre agent would engage with a potential client online. In this way, chatbots act as a conversational agent.
- Prevents Shopping Cart Abandonment
Shopping cart abandonment on e-commerce websites is one of the biggest problems for people selling products online. A chatbot can interject and help and help your potential client to complete their purchase.
- Offers 24-Hour Support
With chatbots, you have 24-hour support, 7 days a week.
