Chatbots are a relatively recent phenomenon that’s creating a lot of buzz in the digital space. One of the best ways to understand their power and appeal is to create one by yourself. Don’t worry, they are very easy to develop. In fact, 3 or 4 hours few hours is all you need to get something up and running.
In my last article (Chat Bots are the Next Digital Platform for Self Promotion) I explained how – among many varied uses - personal Chatbots are a fantastic technology for more personalized and engaging self promotion (we all need to put ourselves out there). Think of them are a more dynamic and interactive alternative to static resumes, complex web pages or even LinkedIn profiles.
Two weeks ago I set off to build my very own chattot in order to learn more about how they work and what they offer. Check it out here. I was pleased to discover that chatbots are quite simple and easy to create thanks to several on-line and free editors. Along the way, I collected a few helpful tips which I would like to share with you.
Creating your personal Chatbot is a fun way to stand out of the crowd while demonstrating your creativity and digital skills. Especially since apps are on their way out (see my earlier article: “Forget Apps. Why Chat Bots Will Transform Health Tech”). Thanks to a slew of free online editing tools & services, the process of creating your very own Chatbot is easier & faster than ever. In my next article ("Stand Out of the Crowd. 10 Tips to Easily Create Your Own Chat Bot"), I will share tips on how to quickly and painlessly build your own Chat Bot.
