HubSpot acquires Motion.ai to launch marketing bot platform - VentureBeat

HubSpot acquires Motion.ai to launch marketing bot platform - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Marketing and sales company HubSpot today announced it has acquired bot creation platform Motion.ai. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition will bring bots to HubSpot’s more than 34,000 customers for the first time.

HubSpot’s best-known bot may be GrowthBot, which was made last year by CTO and cofounder Dharmesh Shah. The Motion.ai platform can currently be used to create bots for Slack and Facebook Messenger, and for chat on websites. Motion.ai has been used by brands like T-Mobile, Kia, Sony, and Wix.

HubSpot acquired Motion.ai because the company has come to understand the importance of providing customers with services that reach them on chat apps.

Should You Get Rid of Your Website's Lead Forms? - ConversionXL | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
With the rise of messaging, the traditional approach of forcing people to fill out forms and following up via phone or email is losing favor.

In order to optimize for long-term growth, marketing and sales teams need to adapt to changing customer communication preferences.

The future of lead generation might not be entirely form-less, but it seems likely that messaging will play a more and more significant role. And thanks to bots, using messaging for lead capture campaigns is not only possible, but scalable.

Bots vs. Apps: Which One Is Best for Marketing? - Capterra

Bots vs. Apps: Which One Is Best for Marketing? - Capterra | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Bots are computer programs that simulate conversations with humans, only with no direct human involvement. In other words, there is no “man behind the curtain.” Everything the bot needs to know to converse with a real human is built into its algorithm. This concept is also known as artificial intelligence, or AI.

Essentially, an app (short for application) is any program on a hand-held device. But as the line has blurred between computers and phones, and as almost every type of device has become portable, the term “app” has broadened to describe almost any software program.

Apps are already so entrenched that it would be shortsighted to eschew them as a reaction to the burgeoning chatbot movement, but it would also be foolish to exclude bots from future marketing plans. Rather, integrating chatbots into an existing mobile and web app strategy is the wisest path.
CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

Think about this: Bots have apps as a backend, i.e., the bot is the UI to the app. So process this sequentially: first app, then wrap the app with the bot.

Do Chatbots Belong in Your Marketing Stack? - CMSwire

Do Chatbots Belong in Your Marketing Stack? - CMSwire | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
The near-term solution is for companies to view chatbots as a channel that employs automated, behavior-based customer communications — no more and no less. For instance, if a customer wants to make an address change, a chatbot might process the request and communicate a confirmation but let the customer decide whether to receive that confirmation via chat, SMS or email. 

To ensure that kind of flexibility, smart, well-trained employees are required in both marketing and customer service. The goal for companies should be to combine the best of people and technology — timely responses and correct answers — and deliver both with the personal touch.

What we know — and need to know — about chatbots - VentureBeat

What we know — and need to know — about chatbots - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Devices or programs that are multithreaded, or able to remember multiple situations, may be the key to improving conversations with AI bots. Today, a user usually must finish a single use case before starting another one. This is unlike normal language, however, as most people don’t always finish an old conversation before beginning another one. To truly mimic natural language, a user should be able to engage in multiple conversations on multiple topics with an AI bot at the same time.

One current strategy for achieving a true NLI is reinforcement learning: Instead of teaching bots to mimic conversation, this strategy may be able to help to actually comprehend language. Reinforcement learning is perhaps most well-known for its role in AlphaGo, a computer developed by a subsidiary of Alphabet called DeepMind, which mastered the complex board game Go – and beat one of the best human players in a highly publicized match last year. Because of the vast number of possible moves and the need to employ creativity to win, the game was one of the hardest challenges for artificial intelligence. While the technique is still in its infancy, it can drastically change the way bots interact with one another to solve problems and could alter the way we teach bots to converse — and even allow them to participate in conversation as if they were a native speaker!

3 Things Every CMO Needs To Know About Chat Bots - Social Media Explorer

3 Things Every CMO Needs To Know About Chat Bots - Social Media Explorer | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
1. Have a Broader Mobile (Messaging) Strategy

Like any advertising campaign, branded chat campaigns perform best when rooted in strategy—specifically, a mobile messaging strategy. This means ensuring everything from the objectives, key performance indicators (KPIs), key messages, and creative content are aligned and working cohesively.

2. Pick the Right Partner

Pick a chatbot marketing expert who is platform agnostic; work with them to develop a proposal and strategy that ladders up to your campaign goals and can be deployed across the appropriate messaging apps. It’s imperative that this partner can also deliver real-time analytics of campaign performance, including message-read rates, average length of conversation, how many people were funneled through to reach the KPIs, etc. 

3. Layer Your Engagement Experiences

Like any other branding, marketing, or advertising campaign, chatbot campaigns perform best when wrapped with other engagement experiences. At least for now, bots lack the ability to sustain interest and engagement when deployed solo.

Understanding Chatbots and Customer Interaction | G2 Crowd

Understanding Chatbots and Customer Interaction | G2 Crowd | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Some questions will be easier to answer than other questions. The answering process will require access to large structured data sets (Type 1) or unstructured data (Type 2).

TYPE 1

Type 1, based upon structured information: ‘Where is my order?,’ a very popular retail customer service use case (it is a type of question). A chatbot receives an SMS reading, “Where is my order?” This process has a few steps in the back end (the fulfillment system) but should not be hard to imagine. ‘Look up the user, via phone number, look up recent order in order system, check status in shipping, send back response to chatbot, which makes the answer conversational.’

TYPE 2

Type 2, based upon unstructured information or knowledge: ‘How do I?…’ or ‘What should I do if?…’ A simple example is spilling wine on fabric or your carpet. A chatbot receives an SMS reading, “I just spilled red wine on my new shirt.” First, the system may need to do everything from Type 1 above to figure out what the fabric might be, then converse with the user. The system may then need to search a knowledgebase or unstructured data, like video or other information stores. There is nothing particularly artificial here, but advanced search capabilities will be required.

How Bots Can Rescue B2B Marketing – Chatbots Magazine | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

"Under the new paradigm, conversations — not forms — drive the qualification process. And thanks to the rise of chatbots, sales and marketing teams can now have these conversations at scale.

 

Chatbots, on the other hand, never have to sleep. Chatbots can continue to ask leads the same qualifying questions that BDRs would ask.

To clarify, the goal here isn’t to replace humans, it’s to help humans manage multiple conversations and qualify leads more efficiently — that way nobody’s time is wasted.

 

Thanks to chatbots, sales and marketing teams can now choose to interact with only the best leads based on the rules and targeting conditions that matter most to their specific business."

Forrester: Messaging works but chatbots can frustrate - Marketing Dive | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
  • The State of Chatbots report, a copy of which was provided to Marketing Dive by Forrester, made it very clear that AI-driven chatbots are currently not overly effective, with messaging as a marketing channel driving app engagement through conversations fueled by people and not bots.
  • The report pointed out that simple chatbots with a narrow set of potential responses and commands are currently successful, but that most chatbots are disappointing consumers with poor user experiences such as not setting expectations and acting in unexpected ways.
  • Forrester also reminded marketers that artificial intelligence isn’t magic, stating that consumers have to “teach” the technology. “AI is not ready to work miracles or generate magical experiences for customers on its own," per the report. "AI-based chatbots are like seeds. You plant them, but then you need to feed them with high volumes of consumer interaction so they grow.”

The Rise Of New Business Apps Called ‘Bots’ - GetResponse Blog

The Rise Of New Business Apps Called ‘Bots’ - GetResponse Blog | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
What are chatbots?

The explanation is hidden in the name itself. Chat and Bots – Chatting with Robots, that is, in layman terms. To give it a slight formal touch: Chatbot is a basic form of artificial intelligence software that talks with humans and answers their queries in a lifelike manner.  When a customer poses a question, within a matter of minutes, a bot sifts through a reservoir of company data to derive an answer.

Types of chatbots        

Presently, two types of Chatbots dominate the market. One functions on the basis of set rules and the other leverages an advanced version and employs machine learning.

Chatbots based on set rules have limited brain power.  It only answers to very specific commands. In short, the bot functions to what it is programmed for.  Nothing more, nothing less.
Chatbots based on machine learning are powered by artificial intelligence.  You don’t have to be really precise while talking to this bot, because it’s designed to comprehend both language and commands quite effortlessly.

The Future Of Messaging Apps - Forrester

We expect messaging apps to play a key role throughout the customer life cycle but more specifically to enable brands to deepen conversations with their customers during the retention phases. Why? Because messaging apps combine the three keys to powerful relationships in any digital environment: frequency of use, emotional connection, and convenience.

While Asian messaging apps such as WeChat or Line are the most advanced, Facebook is really the only one that competes at scale, due to its combined reach of WhatsApp and Messenger. Innovation in adjacent technologies (natural language processing, semantic search,…), especially machine learning and Artificial Intelligence, will blur the lines between messaging apps, bots, and voice-based intelligent agents. But because messaging apps have more users engaged for more minutes today, they will be a dominant platform through which people will first experience and refine their expectations of AI-based tools.

Man vs. Machine: What do Chatbots Mean for Social Media? | Adobe

Man vs. Machine: What do Chatbots Mean for Social Media? | Adobe | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
The first thing to understand about chatbots is that most won’t introduce new capabilities; instead, brand chatbots will centralize where and how customers engage, using social media as an operating system.

Consumers will engage with bots in three ways: content consumption, customer service and productivity or transactional engagements. Social media is already part of many of these activities between brands and consumers, but social media acts as a gateway to direct consumers to the brand website, blog or separate channels. Instead of using social media as a portal, consumers can read and receive information, ask technical questions and even make purchases from one chatbot.

Take for example customer support. More than one-third of customers already prefer using social media rather than the telephone for customer support, and most consumers expect a response within an hour — if not faster. That’s a taxing load for brands, but the enhanced AI through chatbots makes it feasible to accommodate.

Today, HubSpot announced the availability of GrowthBot, a powerful agent of marketing assistance. It’s a bit like having an intern who can help you find data through HubSpot — the popular service that helps with inbound marketing efforts — but it also extends much further.

The bot is available now and works within Facebook Messenger, where it joins an army of 11,000 chatbots. Yet, it distinguishes itself from the pack because it can perform some useful tricks.

For example, let’s say you have a marketing campaign for your new collaborative email app. In GrowthBot, you can ask a question about how many companies use Google Apps in Minnesota. That way, you know what you’re facing and whether it is a prime market. The bot provides a quick answer, and can also tell jokes and even share cartoons, which has the side benefit of supplying some content for your slideshows or even your marketing collateral.
