    Remember the things you easily forget

    The issue with chat bots are that they are often used for novelty purposes/fun. For more practical uses, and something to keep coming back to, Wonder is awesome. Its available across Amazon Echo and Google Home now too. Well worth checking out!

      A simple solution to retaining essential yet easily forgettable information. If I were Guy Pearce from Memeto, I'd be very glad to pick this over the grotesque tattoos.

    A Slack bot to help humans become a better person

    Ryan Hoover
    Ryan Hoover83Founder, Product Hunt Β· Written
    I use very few chat bots, like most people I think. There's a ton of experimentation in this space but most things are easier to do with a GUI. BUT, there's one Slack chat bot I use called Humblebot. Every morning at 6am it delivers a reminder to be kind and empathetic. A few of the things I've received in the past: "Value other people's time as much as your own." "Be positive today. One negative human can impact a whole team." "Make someone laugh today." Some might call it cheesy but these tiny messages can help shape your day and inspire positive actions.

    Text RESIST to 50409 to contact your officials

    Kate53Head of Social @ GitHub Β· Written
    Resistbot is the f*cking BEST. With a few texts, you can get in touch with your Senators and send faxes to their offices. It's absurdly easy to use and crazy effective. I use it on a regular basis and it's super satisfying. Plus, the bot is super friendlyβ€” I always catch myself about to exchange pleasantries with a bot πŸ™ˆ

    ManyChat for Facebook Messenger

    Create a Messenger bot to engage your audience. No coding!

    ManyChat is free for (I believe) the first 2000 leads or so. It's great to engage with people on Facebook. We often use it to deliver free resources to keep our followers happy. Say hi at https://www.facebook.com/product...

      I tried to deactivate ManyChat and although it says it's not on my business pages, my customers are STILL receiving messages. After contacting customer service and their messenger "bot" I still can't get anyone to write me back to help. I tried reaching out to the co-founder, so hopefully he can help. I'm very surprised I'm not seeing more posts of more unhappy customers.

    Use Faceboook Messenger to gamify your customer loyalty.

    A very cool tool that uses Facebook Messenger to send loyalty reward offers to your customers.
    • Nabeena M
      Nabeena MMarketing for AppInstitute & Soulscape

      Such a cool tool for businesses. I've seen huge brands like Nike use chat bots to drive comms with their customers but their solution always seemed pretty basic and meh. I think adding something like a scratch card element makes loyalty a little more fun - could totally see this growing into a complete loyalty suite. Perfect for small businesses too who already use Facebook to promote deals.

      Great work!

      So far so good, installed onto a few clients sites who run shops/hairdressers and other small purchases sites, targeting through fb is a no brainer for their markets but using ChatWhale has made them different to their competition which is ace! Also been an easy sell as its free to start with until they get more numbers. Looking forward to seeing how it develops. 10/10 so far!

    Build conversational websites, convert more visitors

    Help to increase conversion rate in lead generation by engaging with customers.
    • I truly believe in the direction landbot is heading, enabling makers to utilise a bot without having to chose a platform is powerful. Using Landbot as a landing page will increase conversion as users will be guided by the bot through the customer journey. I am working on a product build with landbot, i cant wait to share it with the product hunt community soon. #Landbot1.0

      Brilliant product, excited to see where it goes. Fun to use if you enjoy trying to create engaging and human conversational flows. *nerd alert*

      Two things I don't love: 1. Needs work for our mobile visitors. Looks zoomed out and far from optimal for a mobile visitor, a bad experience on this is worse than no experience at all, so a bit of a showstopper for me at the moment, for risk of providing a bad experience (no way of tracking or following this experience to check it's going smooth for mobile visitors, so a tiny risk to go live with if have lots of visitors on mobile)

      Secondly, at the end of every flow on the freemium a "share this Landbot" button appears alongside a CTA to create their own. Obviously, I get it, it's a free product, do what you want. If I want to remove that, I can pay to do so. Just my personal opinion, and more feedback than a request, is that I think it's a bad time to "Hijack" MY visitors attention to market YOUR product at what is often for these forms, the critical moment, the end. They're at a decision crossroads. We've just exchanged information, i've taken them on this journey, and then BAM, you come and sweep them off their feet and they forget all the sweet nothings they and i whispered to each other.

      My only point is, IF others have this gripe too, they might leave and not give the product a chance to become part of their paid stack, instead of upgrading straight away to remove this barrier to them. If this barrier didn't exist, (your branding is still on the page top right anyway), they may implement, become an active user, and give you plenty of time to convert them to a paid plan as you continue to execute and improve the product from now on out.

      Keep up the great work.

    Kyber for Slack

    All-in-one Slack app: tasks, standups, polls, surveys & more

    Paolo Perazzo
    Paolo PerazzoBuilding products, enterprise & consumer Β· Written
    Paolo Perazzo made this product
    We built Kyber out of necessity: we spent quite some time discussing features or bugs on Slack, and then we had to move all that knowledge into an external project management tool to track action items coming out of those conversations. It was very time consuming and inefficient; the context of those decisions was lost and sometimes we even forgot to track the action items. Therefore, we decided to build a project management tool completely inside Slack. Overtime, we expanded that model to other interactions like polls, surveys, standup meetings, messages, etc. Finally with templates we enabled a variety of customizable and configurable micro-apps for common workflow automation. Now we use Kyber every day. Like us thousands of Slack teams.

      I am a venture investor and use this with my extended team (Associates, finance, data scientists etc). Many of my portfolio companies use this product as well and find the new templates useful to quickly setup custom workflows without spending time coding. The new "all in one" approach saves from having to jump around to different apps. Also eliminates the endless back and forth that sometimes happens when messaging in Slack.

      Until now, I have been using Kyber with my team to track day by day tasks in each channel; I really like the ability to turn existing messages into tasks with actions. The new templates seem a game changer. I already setup a couple and the team immediately interacted.
