Chatbot Development – Don’t Run in the Conversational UX Race – Sam Makad


Businesses today want to boast two medallions – artificial intelligence and machine-learning. As a result, they try putting AI into every potentially-automated process. But is this necessary?

While AI is the answer to several business issues; it is still evolutionary. It has a lot of room for improvement. Can AI be trusted with customer interactions? Yes and no.

If you have been thinking about implementing an AI-based conversational chatbot on an automated interactive user experience, you may need to think again. Consider the following arguments:

1.   Do you want to eliminate all human interaction from automated business processes?

Conversational chatbots do not have an unlimited decision-making capacity; in fact, they are very focused. A conversational chatbot can only make conversation based on its training, but using a trained conversational chatbot still results in impediments when interacting with humans. When a chatbot that was designed to provide incremental interaction efficiency with customers cannot fully deal with them, it becomes a liability you don’t want.

One negative bot experience can result in serious business damage.  Of customers whose initial bot experience was negative, 73% of them won’t interact with it again. Chatbots run at 85% efficiency – less than the 90% customer satisfaction rates provided globally by call centre executives.

Chatbots should automate redundant processes. How? Every company has a set of queries frequently asked by customers. Using these rules, chatbots help customers; however, a human is still needed to solve the communication puzzle. This is imperative because any query can result in an anomaly that the chatbot hasn’t been trained for.

2.   Does Your chatbot have sufficient decision-making capabilities?

Many people believe the most complex part of running a business is the sales or finance aspect; but it’s the decision-making. Humans are intuitive and pragmatic enough to make the occasional sound decision. Even when facing a problem for the first time, a human can make sense out of and deal with it. Therefore, it is logical to provide human employees with a certain degree of freedom when interacting with customers.

For instance, allow your customer representatives to give freebies or special offers when dealing with customers who’ve experienced issues while working with your business. You can do this because you trust their decision-making skills. Can you say the same for a chatbot? Many times, customer executives act outside their job description to leverage their business relationship when helping a customer. This does not immediately affect the business’ bottom line but it does help establish a relationship with the customer. Can a chatbot do the same?

Some say the very essence of neural networks in machine-learning (ML) is to break processes and learn the art of decision-making. That said, any machine-learning engineer would state that ML continues to grow and has miles to go before it will reach the general AI stage. Can you trust this kind of evolutionary technology with decision-making? A chatbot is unable to go beyond its programming to assist customers.  A chatbot cannot be trained on complex scenarios where it would need to think “outside the box” to do something. Such actions are subjective, so it is counterintuitive to expect them from your conversational chatbot. It cannot handle complex conversations.

3.   Does the idea of posing your chatbot as a human seem fascinating to you?

For many entrepreneurs, incorporating AI into their business processes is something they want, rather than need, to do. This is because they want to see themselves as pioneers in the field. They want conversational chatbots in their processes that are as seamless as human customer executives; but here’s a staggering fact for you – 75% of people want to know whether they are talking to a chatbot or a real person.

The idea of a chatbot being as conversationally fluent as a human may work in science fiction, but real human customers have different expectations. So, if your desire for a conversational chatbot is based on your belief that it will amaze your customers, you should reconsider your decision.

4.   Do you have the data, process redundancies and infrastructure to deploy a conversational chatbot?

Human interactions bring empathy to a conversation. This applies to both the executives, who can interact with greater empathy and the customers, who will be more considerate towards an executive. Unfortunately, empathy disappears when chatbots completely dominate the conversation. In fact, 61% of people find it more frustrating when a chatbot, rather than a human, is unable to solve their problem.

To make the conversational chatbot more effective, you need to have the right start. First, determine whether the process has enough redundancy for automation. Second, confirm the appropriate data for chatbot training purposes, because the data used in building is not sufficient preparation for actual human interactions. This is important because customers are less tolerant when a chatbot fails to resolve their queries.

Finally, review the infrastructure to ensure the chatbot has the technological space it needs, i.e.  can it integrate with the ERP and CRM systems while still providing secure processes? Businesses need to answer these questions before choosing to deploy a conversational chatbot, and they need to consider their intent behind deploying one.

Why Live Chat Isn’t Just For Customer Service Anymore – Sara Yin


According to an eConsultancy report, for every $92 spent acquiring prospects only $1 is spent converting them. Sure, that dollar could give you returns in spades, but in reality the odds of that are no better than a craps table in Las Vegas. The average conversion rate for your typical marketing stack – things like forms, paid advertising or mass email – hovers around the 2% mark.

The report is a bit dated, but the underlying thinking persists: companies still spend disproportionately on acquisition and neglect conversion.

To paraphrase Tom Goodwin, isn’t it odd that we’ll spend billions of dollars trying to have a conversation with consumers, and in the rare moment we do, we consider it too expensive?

Perhaps that’s because the value of having these conversations isn’t clear. To establish that value, we analyzed an aggregate dataset of 20 million live chat messages sent through Intercom to demonstrate the potential for live chat as a channel for converting visitors and driving actual revenue for your business.

Here’s what we found (or scroll down for the full, embeddable infographic).

1. Live chat delights your visitors – and your finance team

live chat conversions

Having conversations with your website visitors really does pay off. According to our data, website visitors are 82% more likely to convert to customers if they’ve chatted with you first. What’s more, their accounts are worth 13% more than those where the business didn’t have a conversation before sign up. Leaning into real-time conversations isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s great for capturing and converting website visitors too.

Key takeaway: Live chat is a powerful (and underrated) channel for converting visitors into valuable customers. When someone visits your site, they’re more receptive to chatting with a salesperson than, say, when they receive an unsolicited LinkedIn message.

2. Even a short conversation can pay off

live chat etiquetteA common misperception about live chat is that effective conversations need to be long and time-consuming. On the contrary, a quick, real-time connection makes a big difference. We’ve found that just one reply in the messenger can increase the likelihood of conversion by 50%; one more reply makes that visitor 100% more likely to convert. A simple conversation with 6 exchanged messages makes a visitor 250% more likely to become a customer.

Key takeaway: Live chatting for business isn’t like chatting with a good friend, but the more you chat, the more likely you’ll convert them.

3. Consider where you really want to chat

live chat on websiteDon’t assume your homepage is the only place to install a messenger. According to our data, visitors are actually 45% more likely to convert on pages other than the homepage.

Key takeaway: Think about the visitor’s motivation for visiting a certain page and where they’re most likely to need a real-time response. Perhaps that’s on your pricing page when they are trying to choose between options, or perhaps it’s on a promotional landing page when they’ve clicked on an ad and are trying to figure out how your product fits their needs.

4. Bots augment your (human) sales team

live chat bots
The best chatbots are like an SDR’s secret personal assistant. They streamline their jobs by taking on repetitive tasks, i.e. booking meetings, collecting lead information and suggesting help articles, so the SDR can focus on higher cognitive tasks. Indeed, our data shows that conversations with bots convert 36% better, likely because a bot can respond faster than humans for most repetitive tasks.But in our opinion they they should never pretend to be humans, nor should they completely replace humans, who are still more efficient at converting leads into customers (amongst other human-y things, like sensing low-level rage 😡).

Key takeaway: Humans and bots make a lean, mean sales machine. But ultimately, humans are still better than bots for qualifying leads and shouldn’t replace them anytime soon.

Bottom line: it pays to chat

Live chat bridges the gap between the personal, timely service that makes us loyal customers in real life with the extensibility of software and the ROI of automation.

You certainly don’t need to use our live chat solution to experience these benefits, but some of our customers have experienced solid results:

  • Tradeshift’s sales team increased sales opportunities by 32% with our live chat.
  • At Salesloft, Intercom drives 40% of sales demos booked, an 8X improvement over their previous live chat tool.
  • After one month with Intercom, Prosperworks achieved 25% more leads and nearly 20 new opportunities.

Thanks to intelligent automations such as conversation routing, CRM integrations and chatbots, live chat is on the cusp of being the most efficient way to capture and convert leads.
