Natural Language

A chatbot that sounds like a robot is a donkey, but a chatbot that sounds like a human is a unicorn.
Even when users know they’re interacting with a bot, they never want it to feel like they’re interacting with a bot.
The best bots use natural language, emojis, and maybe even GIFs.
They are empathetic– as a basic example, if a user has a problem, the chatbot will be able to recognize it as such and offer a very human “I’m sorry!”

Emotionally Intelligent

It’s not enough for your chatbot to be able to answer frequently asked questions– it has to be emotionally intelligent, as well.
An emotionally intelligent chatbot can sense a user’s mood and respond appropriately, and know when to automatically escalate the chat to a live support agent.

Smart and Analytical

Smart chatbots are able to drive the conversation forward.
They’re able to predict what a user might need next (based on the prior conversation) and give suggestions whenever possible.
On top of that, the chatbot should be able to respond in multiple languages.

User-Focused

Whatever the chatbot is designed to do, it should always have the users in mind, first and foremost.The chatbot should be able to anticipate the users’ needs and next questions, and effectively offer them solutions before they even ask for them.
Facebook Messenger chatbots should also be equipped to offer multiple answers that users can easily tap (no need to even type their response!).

Subscription Feature!

Facebook Messenger now allows for subscription messaging (yet another reason why this platform should be integrated in your marketing mix).
Subscription messaging allows businesses to send regular content through Facebook Messenger when the user chooses to opt-in for it.
Chatbot should be able to schedule these messages periodically.
User should also be able to opt-out easily once they no longer want to receive those messages.

Broadcasting Skills

A Facebook Messenger chatbot is so much more than a question and answer tool.
One of the (many) strengths of a chatbot is its ability to broadcast a message to your audience (with an up to 80% open rate within the first 60 minutes!).
When choosing your chatbot software, look for a tool that allows you to “chat blast” many people at once.
Chatblasting will maximize your exposure and ability to engage with customers.

CRM-Ready

Using chatbots is a great way to make customer relationship management easier.Implementing chatbots frees up time and labour since the chatbot is able to deftly handle a lot of the incoming queries.
On top of that, look for chatbot software that be integrated with your current systems so they can handle real-time actions (like routine customer password changes and other customer support tasks).
This will turn what would usually be a 12-step process into something simpler, faster and automated.

GDPR-Compliant

Chatbots should comply with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), especially if your business is dealing with international audiences.
GDPR was implemented by the European Union in 2018 in an effort to protect customers’ data and privacy.
Not complying with the GDPR entails heavy fines of up to 4% of annual revenues or 20 million Euros, whichever is greater.
To make your chatbot GDPR-compliant, make sure you use personal data only for stated purposes only and always give users access to their information.
Update your privacy policy accordingly and always do your best to comply with GDPR and its practices.
