Basic Chatbot Setup


This is a generic chatbot implementation that will suit most business types. The chatbot’s main function will be to collect the lead’s contact information and forward it to you via an email notification so that someone from your team can follow up afterward.

Later on, you can upgrade to the advanced chatbot solution and supercharge your chatbot with more features and options, e.g. live chat.
