Jon and Nicole talk about how they define the different types of chatbots and the massive changes that may be ahead as chatbots become even more prevalent.
  • Chatbots as a whole new realm of conversion rate optimization (CRO)
  • Are forms dead?
  • Chatbot design and how it mirrors landing page optimization in many ways
  • Could chatbots complete replace websites for many businesses?
We encourage everyone to get out there and experiment with a chatbot. We can personally vouch for these two platforms for launching your chatbot:
Drift - The "new way businesses buy from businesses". Great for booking meetings with new prospects and sparking conversations with prospects visiting your site.
Landbot - Great way to easily launch a chatbot with low risk. What we love about Landbot is the visual bot builder and options to implement your bot as a sidebar chat, embedded widget or take over the whole page with the bot experience.
Nicole came prepped with research for this episode. Here are the articles and research she referenced:
"The Sudden Death of the Website" - Techcrunch
"Gartner Top Strategic Predictions for 2018 and Beyond" - Gartner
"8 Changes Chatbots Will Bring to the Workplace" - CMS Wire
The best we advice we have is get out there and start experimenting because chatbots are becoming a larger piece of converting prospects to customers.
If you don't have a chatbot strategy yet, you need to think hard about why.
