According to research, 57% of customers preferred live chat to get their queries answered. Also, for communicating with a chatbot, there is no need to leave the page or move onto a new application. You just have to click on the conversational window which is present on the page you are currently on. This is the strategy that companies aim at, especially in digital marketing.
1. Connection between you and your consumer
While a customer is surfing on the internet, the companies can use chatbots to latch onto the customers. From then on, a chatbot acquaints the customer with the company, its features, vision, a catalog, etc. and how it can be a suitable option for the consumer. Additionally, it helps in promoting you by interacting with people regarding the brand benefits, discounts and other promotional offers. In simpler words, it provides an overview of the company and why it is worthy of the consumer.
2. Solve queries
If your business gets a ton of client assistance demands through Messenger (or on the off chance that you need to begin using Facebook Messenger as a client care channel), a bot can be immense assistance. You can make a chatbot that assists clients with narrowing down their client assistance issues to a particular classification before guiding them to the ideal individual to converse with or the right answer. Not only does the chatbot introduce your company, but it also answers any query or misunderstanding the consumer has. Moreover, it does so in a matter of seconds and at any time of the day reflecting on a chatbot’s yet another advantage.

Also, chatbots can help in announcing a new offer or a new product launch. Thus chatbots can help maintain a good relationship with both potential and existing customers.
