With the rising popularity in AI and business owners being able to use messenger bots and chatbots to deal with a whole raft of enquiries.
One thing I suggest existing chat bot operators look to include in their current programming is affiliate opportunities.
Now I am not suggesting everyone is sent to an affiliate link, but there might be parts of your decision tree programming that means the visitor is not ready to work with you right now or need some other help outside your expertise.
This help could come in the guise of a referral to another product or service - and why can’t that be an affiliate link?
In this way, you are maximising the ability to generate revenue from every site visit.
Trust me, if people focussed on the driving more revenue form existing traffic volumes, they will be much much more profitable.
So take some time out and revisit your chatbot processes and what they do, are there parts where the message could be, I think you might need to look at something like this: [affiliate link] to help sort that issue out for you.
Chatbots are built into Facebook pages so this could be great places to test it out.
Otherwise, there are a number of tools such as ManyChat or Chatfuel.
Best places to add affiliate links inside a chat bot is when the bot is:
- Asked for a recommended product
- Asked how to do something
- At a point where they have ruled themselves out of working with you via the question set.
