What Is A Chatbot?

A Chatbot is a piece of software that you add to your website to interact with your visitors.

If you're like me, you've probably seen them and ignored them because they are new, you don't trust them, and you don't know how interacting with them will end.

But don't be afraid, they are just pieces of software, programmed to give information about items or services in which you might be interested.

Sometimes, chatbots help those who manage the site to understand better how to help you further. For example, perhaps the site is missing something that you feel is important.

Or you can ask, right there and then, about something you're interested in, or perhaps you have a question for which you what a quick answer.
