I know what you are thinking…
Don’t all chatbots speak? Isn’t that the point of the whole technology?
You are right… well kind of…technically chatbots chat.
Speaking is reserved for humans, Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri.
We we were thinking this past week : bots are engaging (you know more conversions and all) because they are conversational.
So what would happen if we made them more conversational!
The logic to us seems simple.
Double conversational-ness = Double engagement = Double awesomeness (i.e. conversions 😛 )
So we delegated the job to our favourite source of free labour, TARS co-founder and guy from the tech team, Vinit.
3 days later this beautiful baby bot was born : https://bitcoin.hellotars.com/conv/HJ60PR/?_speak
It speaks while it sends you messages. And you can check how to make your bots speak here.
After the bot was born we took the logical next step for any eager new parents. We put the baby up on ProductHunt! Please do take a few seconds to comment and upvote(if you like) : https://www.producthunt.com/posts/speaking-chatbots-by-tars
Now that we have the speaking bot, we’d love to hear what you think. Where would you use a Speaking ChatBot?
Look forward to your thoughts!
