Chatbots serve as concierges. Some work the help section answering FAQs a.k.a frequently asked questions. Some work the sales area 1. capturing a prospect’s email, name and conversation, 2. qualifying the prospect and 3. uploading the prospect information into a CRM which in turn will take the prospect through the sales funnel. Apart from the sales bots, we have marketing bots that provide information about the product’s features, pricing etc. Last but not least, the chatbot can don yet another personality — the customer service bot taking requests, registering complaints or issues, assigning agents to the request, and helping customer check on status of a request. Now what if you had a four in one chatbot that could do all of the above for a company without breaking a sweat? Ask us at about our All-in-one bot.

The world is a much better place with chatbots that have taken the drudgery out of a concierge’s job allowing room for more creative thinking by humans. Let the bots do all the mundane work. Today chatbots thanks to neural networks and AI can glean a user’s intent and respond almost like a human. I venture to say chatbots respond better than a human would, because chatbots don’t get tired, don’t get irritated, don’t get bored and hmm don’t cost a pretty penny. Lets make this world a better place with chatbots.

The outlier marketplaces e.g. airbnb, were born from difficult situations viewed as opportunities.

I love the airbnb story where the founders could not afford the rent in San Francisco. They rented out 3 air mattresses to pay the rent and the idea was born.

Uber had a similar situation. The founders were having trouble hailing a cab in Paris. While they were looking it dawned on them that this would have been so simple had there been an app where they could tap a button and ask for a ride.

In both these examples, the founders converted their difficult situations to opportunities like true founders.

When you are having a rough day, shine your light and find your opportunity in disguise.
