If you have a website or blog, entertaining and engaging your visitors in order to make them stay longer is vital in getting everything else started. Whether it’s rich and informative content, funny images or captivating videos, visitors visit your site always for their own reason.
Though most sites are equipped with many variable options for visitors to express themselves such as comments, social media and email or contact forms, most of them don’t guarantee immediate interaction.
What if you are able to capture your visitors attention, have a casual live chat with them and even answer their questions without the need to actually be online at the site 24/7? That’s why Acobot was created.
Acobot is a web service that installs a real-time chat robot on your site to engage your visitors. When visitors enter your site, they will be greeted with a small chat window that appears at the lower-right corner of your browser window. Visitors are able to ask their questions in the chat box and Aco will respond with a reply within few seconds.
Benefits for your business website:
- Reach more customers by offering 24/7 live support.
- Delight them by eliminating wait times.
- Give helpful answers when they have questions.
- Increase customer satisfaction, reduce site abandonment, and optimize conversions.
In short, Acobot helps you win more customers.
Benefits for your personal website:
- Impress your website visitors, effortlessly.
- Keep them on your website (longer time on page).
- Attract them to come back (more repeat visits).
How Smart is Acobot?
Aco is a real-time chat bot that replies to your visitors almost immediately. The chat box offers and entices your visitors to input a question or statement, so you can be quite sure that once installed on your site you will get plenty of interaction from visitors.
The problem, however, is that Acobot doesn’t necessarily always give the responses you would like it to. I applied the demo to a website and asked if there were any tutorials on the site. The bot assured me there were, but when I then asked if there were any Photoshop Actions, I was surprised by the reply ‘Take it easy.‘
Considering this reply and my question, I think there may be some filter to stop abusive or pornographic-related questions, which I am guessing ‘Photos’ and ‘Actions’ could have been caught by. However, all is not lost – when you look at the log of questions and replies through your Aco account, you can input more appropriate answers for your future visitors, so in time you should have a complete set of good replies for the majority of questions posed.
Fast Integration with WordPress
Installing and configuring Acobot is an easy process. You have to do download Acobot Live Chat Robot WordPRess plugin and activate it at the admin->Plugins. Sign up an Acobot account for an installation key which you can go back to the plugin and provide the key. The chat window will be available immediately after that.
How Much Does It Cost?
It appears that there will be a charge for higher volume of use at some point, but at the time of writing there is no limit to the amount of chats and Acobot is completely free of charge.
Although Acobot currently speaks and understands English only, there is a huge possibility that it will learn more languages in the future. Acobot can be entertaining and help relieve the stress of the day by providing a listening ear for your readers. Why not download it and experience the simple fun for yourself.
