Chatbots Create Better Content Experience Based On 9 Golden Rules

Provide personalized message: There are many ways to personalize information, the most basic of which is to include the name of the recipient. This has a high hit rate and strengthens customer relationships. Modern users have many choices, they only choose the businesses and companies that think they value them. The author here compares the high open and click rates of emails sent to recipients by name. As a more innovative tool, chatbots can work more efficiently than emails.
Sending content in new ways: new social tools, directed to social platforms, are easy to attract and used by modern customers. On the other hand, modern people are relatively busy and have short attention spans. These social platforms, including Facebook Messenger, Instagram or Snapchat, can attract their attention better. Merchants should promote content through these channels.
Make chatbot a brand ambassador: Well-trained, AI-integrated chatbots can make potential customers think about your brand, even change their attitude toward your company, make them better understand your business, and more.
Make Chatbots work like humans: Effectively working chatbots are personal, and customers should feel like they interact with real people, not bots.
Increase subscription participation rate: Chatbots will become the next wave of subscribing tools. Merchants can use Facebook-based chatbots to send newsletters directly to Messenger, and subscribers will receive notifications directly on their Messenger screens, will greatly increase engagement, and not be ignored like traditional email.
Get content from customers: Creating new content ideas is always a challenge for marketers. Chatbots can draw customers' insights, which can be an important source of new content. The author uses a case study of a Sephora skincare chatbot. “ These bots tap customers for insights on product performance, preferences, other industry products, suggestions and tips through short quizzes ”
Protect sensitive data with chatbots: When your customers provide their data, they have expectations to protect their privacy. Merchants should strive to make chatbots a secure channel for sensitive data. Data breaches are tricky and can happen in the most harmless way. So stay alert and foresee these damages and take steps to avoid them.
Using chatbots should also use human services: Marketing automation is a complement to marketers, not a replacement for them. No matter how ingenious a chatbot is, it cannot replace real human services, especially in subtle situations. When the conversation starts to get worse, the chatbot should be able to detect changes in customer tone and connect it to a customer service representative. If chatbots stay online too long with emotional customers, it could make things worse.
Ensuring the quality of chatbots: Put a lot of time and money into developing a chatbot to make sure it's as smart as possible. Even if customers know that the other end of the conversation is a bot, they will thank you.

In Conclusion

The key to the success of Internet business is to provide an excellent content experience. Chatbot is a tool to provide this experience. Using chatbots and good practices will help brands and companies promote business success.
