Why Implementing Chatbots Is a Must On Your Website

Why Implementing Chatbots Is a Must On Your WebsiteWhen you are attempting to build a successful website or have already done so and are looking for ways to ensure your website stays up-to-date, one customer service tool that is a must for your website is a chatbot. Chatbots come with an array of benefits and are quickly becoming essential for the ongoing success of any website, which is why it’s important that you focus on implementing chatbots into your website. Doing so will provide your customers with a new way to communicate with your business.

What Are Chatbots?

A chatbot is a type of service that is aimed at simulating conversations with your customers on your website, which is done via a chat interface. Chatbots can be used in a variety of ways and are able to provide immediate responses to any queries that the customers have. Although some chatbots are simplistic in nature and follow a strict set of rules, most modern chatbots are built with an artificial brain that allows them to adapt to the conversations that they have already had with customers. By continuing to learn from older conversations, chatbots have the ability to answer all kinds of questions.

With this type of computer program, you won’t need to have a representative online to answer questions on a 24/7 basis, which ensures that your customers are left with a good experience at all times. Although the primary use of a chatbot is to converse with customers via a chat system, these bots can complete a variety of additional business tasks that include organizing meetings, reducing your overhead costs, and the collection of pertinent information about your target customers.

Benefits of Using Chatbots For Your Website

There are a multitude of reasons as to why using chatbots is a must for your website, the primary of which is the fact that these bots will be able to answer customer questions when a human representative is not around. With the automation of customer support, you will be able to save a substantial amount of time and money. Understanding the benefits associated with using chatbots for your website should make it clear that implementing them is the way to go for the future.

Chatbots Help Save You Money

In many ways, chatbots are designed first and foremost to help companies save money when it comes to their customer service expenses. It’s important to understand, however, that the lower costs attributed to this service don’t mean that the quality is also lower when compared to the human element. When used properly, chatbots will save you money and boost your reputation. The primary savings associated with the usage of chatbots occurs in the event that you are able to reduce the overall number of human representatives that you use for your customer service. Chatbots can respond in a variety of ways that include text, audio, and images, which means that you can also use this service to augment the standard services provided by your customer service agents.

While you’re saving money through the automation of your online customer service, you may also want to explore different routes of monetization. For instance, chatbots can perform eCommerce transactions for you, which allows you to be more involved in the sale of an item or service on your website. Since smart chatbots will remember user preferences, they can handle the entire sale process in mere seconds. As you are using chatbots with your website, you’ll likely discover new ways to monetize that were never open to you before. These bots should also help to make your customers more immersed in the website, which could push them towards buying more of your product than they normally would. The end goal with chatbots is to improve the experience that visitors have when browsing your website. On that front, chatbots will invariably improve your customer service without costing you a substantial sum of money.

Chatbots Improve Response Rate

One of the best aspects of implementing chatbots into your website is that the response rate of your customer service will be improved by a considerable amount. Even when you have human representatives working on your website’s chat support, there will always be delays in responses. These representatives will also have limitations that only allow them to respond to customers during standard work hours, which is something that can be frustrating for the customer. Chatbots will respond to every visitor to your website that sends an inquiry, which will in turn allow you to bolster customer conversion rates by pushing visitors into becoming loyal customers.

Chatbots Provide Better Customer Service

While this won’t always be the case, it’s possible for chatbots to provide your customers with better customer service than they would otherwise receive from a human representative. It’s important to note that this is largely the case with smart chatbots only as opposed to chatbots that have strict guidelines on what they can and cannot answer. One way in which chatbots provide much better customer service than other methods is that a bot will respond immediately, which means that your customers will be able to avoid being told to wait until someone is available to help them with their inquiry.

Chatbots are also a great way for customers to type in a small question they have without needing to explore every page of the website to do so. For instance, FAQ answers can be relayed directly to the customer through a chatbot, which is more preferable to the customer than having to search for their exact question on your FAQ page. Chatbots can also respond to customers in a variety of languages, which means that you’ll never need to tell a customer to wait until you can find someone who speaks the same language. These are just a few of the many ways in which chatbots can provide enhanced customer service for the visitors to your website. The ways in which your website can benefit from chatbots largely depend on what your goals are and what you want your customer service to represent.

Chatbot Technology Is Improving Every Day

Although it’s already possible for chatbots to gain knowledge as they answer customer inquiries, the technology associated with chatbots continues to improve with each passing day. The usage of chatbots is still in its infancy. As more and more companies adopt this technology, the service will evolve and the uses of chatbots will become more defined.

Chatbots Are Available At All Times

As touched upon previously, chatbots can answer customers and clients on a 24/7 basis and will never need to take a break. By always having someone ready to answer the questions that your customers have, you will be able to keep these customers satisfied. The improvement of customer satisfaction should lead to a better customer service reputation for your business.

Chatbots Can Automate Repetitive Tasks

A great way to reduce your employees’ workload is to have chatbots automate the repetitive tasks that come with customer service. No one likes to perform these tasks, which is why errors may start to pop up as a person continues to answer the same questions over and over again. You can design chatbots to answer some of the basic questions that you receive automatically. These questions can range anywhere from “do you deliver?” to “where is your store located?”. If ever the question is more complicated than this, the bot can simply send the customer to a human representative who will be able to more effectively answer their questions.

Why Using Chatbots Is Essential For Any Website

All of the benefits mentioned previously should make it clear as to why it’s essential to implement chatbots on your website. Without making use of chatbots, the customer service on your website is solely predicated on the quality of service that human representatives provide, which means that customers will need to wait for answers and may not be able to find anyone to speak to at odd hours of the day. Chatbots help to eliminate the gaps in your customer service that could be a detriment to your reputation.

You should also be aware of the fact that many of your competitors are likely using or considering the usage of chatbots, which means that it may be possible for them to provide better customer service than you until you implement chatbots of your own. It’s likely that your business operates in a competitive space, which means that it’s always important to find advantages where you can. In the event that your competitors don’t use chatbots while you do, this could create a scenario where customers are more likely to use your website due to the better customer service. Since chatbots can range from simplistic to technologically advanced in the types of tasks that they can perform, you should definitely consider doing a trial run with chatbots to see whether or not they are right for you.

Thank you for improving our SEO. You were upfront (which is more than i can say from our last agency) and honest. Thank you for pointing out the mistakes our last agency made using tactics frowned upon by Google and getting us back on the right track. 7 months with you guys has been better than the last year and a half with 2 other agencies.

I am glad i found you sooner rather than later our PPC spend was out of control and yall helped me increase sales while decreasing spend. I knew something wasn't right and yall quickly turned it around. I'm not going to try and do the "marketing" stuff on my own anymore.

Thank you to Kyle and his team for their hard work and dedication. Kyle literally spent the first 3 months being my main point of contact and he is the CEO! With a large budget like we spend its nice to know the owner of the company is available to take my calls and meet with me. He was in the office everyday we dropped in and our new account manager Ryan is just as good! The positive ROI has been amazing and i can't wait to bring my new start up on board from the begining when it launches in December of 2018.

Top notch customer service and very knowledgeable when it comes to PPC marketing. Austin is our PPC account manager and he is always available to take my call. Our business has tripled sales over the last 5 months. I highley reccomend you contact them the consultation was free and they are very laid back and not some huge 500+ employee agency that never has time for you.

We went through 4 "marketing agencies" before we finally had results with Website Marketing Company. All agencies are not created equal and we learned you get what you pay for. Other agencies locked us into a contract and charged extra fees we were not aware of before signing up. All of that is a thing of the past now with y'all. You were upfront and honest, no extra fees, no contracts and i feel at home. Prompt replies to my emails and a detailed breakdown in easy to understand language.

Our business has significantly improved due to the marketing strategy that you implemented. We even had a last minute change that needed to be made and we were able to call our account manager Austin on Christmas and he had the changes implemented the same same day! Thats customer service and can't wait wait for 2019.

This company was originally helping us with our SEO and website improvements, but they have now progressed into assisting us with our social media presence. I was completely oblivious to how effective social media can be for leveraging new customers. Over the past few months, they have been very successful in attracting and influencing new customers and building our organic presence. I’ve learned a lot about the right and wrong ways to improve our business thanks to Mike and the marketing team. Thank you for your honesty, transparency, and guidance! I look forward to a continued and prosperous partnership between the both of us. Best Regards,Angel

I would recommend them wholeheartedly if you’re running a local business! Cheers to SUCCESS!

I have a very busy schedule. Therefore, I do not like to spend my free time hassling my marketing company for updates regarding work I’m paying for. I had that issue with a few other marketing companies before finally migrating over to this company. They are organized and it shows because my status report at the end of the month is always detailed and pinpoints exactly what kind of results were achieved during that specific month. So far, they haven’t missed a month. My SEO has drastically improved and I’m looking forward to running more campaigns as they continue to prove they are capable. Special thanks to Austin and Peter for being consistent and personable to do business with.

If you’re looking to explode your rankings, this is the right company for the job. I own a dog sitting business and I’m partnered with corporate partners like Rover, but despite that, I knew my business could be improved even more. I handle my own social media marketing, so I really only needed this company for Google ranking purposes. They skyrocketed me to the number 5 position in my niche and city in just 2 weeks. I was probably on the 3rd or 4th page before that, so they really worked their magic. What’s crazy to me is, this is JUST the beginning of what my business’s rankings are capable of!
