How does this compare to something like chatfuel for Facebook Messenger? I'm still waiting for a drag and drop bot builder and templates 😬

@bentossell yeah similar to them :). We are working a lot to simplify the interface and make it easy for non-programmers these days. Usually people who do not have technical background do not have any idea about setting up webhook and all that, there is a video right when they login to walk them through the whole process. But yeah still a lot of work needs to be done.
@bentossell we are working on that drag and drop concept Ben. It's hard (on mobile) for lot's of reasons, we'll see how it goes. But I hunted this because a) it's cool! & b) I think the market for easy to construct bots (like Botsify here) for product and brand managers that do not have dev. teams (or are not developers themselves) is a really awesome thing. Much like Squarespace, Wix, etc. I don't believe bot creation should be the exclusive realm of developers. Even though it may mean a proliferation of crappy bots, it will be good in the end. Like the app store, the best ones will surface and we'll find all sorts of new creations in that. I really like what you're doing here @Usama! Congrats on launch. Looks great.
@bentossell We just launched the beta of a drag-and-drop bot builder, no coding skills required, but if you know how to code you can insert your own JavaScript 😎 It's pretty simple to use, you can have your bot live in just a minute. The beta is public, try it out: https://talkbot.io

Hi Product Hunters! This is Usama, founder of Botsify. I am very happy to make it on Product Hunt today. We started Botsify 3 weeks ago. We certainly are one of the first helping people to make awesome chatbots for facebook messenger without any coding knowledge. I would love to hear about your feedback on the product. Three weeks down we have helped over 60+ people make their chatbots, and the number is growing rapidly. We are working on some really cool features like "Editing chatbot responses, tokenized searching, marketing, analytics and a package for WordPress chatbot". So you will be able to start right away with one click for your WordPress chatbot using WP-Rest. In case of any feedback I would love to hear from you guys. Let me know what's more important to improve the product at this point. Here is my email address (usama@botsify.com)
@usamanoman the quote from Zuck on your page doesn't really make sense does it? "WE THINK YOU SHOULD MESSAGE A BUSINESS JUST THE WAY YOU WOULD MESSAGE A BUSINESS." Maybe you should update this? I feel like there's a typo. 🤒
@gozmike @usamanoman I believe the quote is "We think you should message a business just the way you would message a friend."

@gozmike Fixed. Thanks :)

Just got my product hunt page ready :) Do checkout and let me know. https://botsify.com/?ref=product...

the support is non existent, I have problems with my paid contact, no response. I created a user here since I am sure that would get their attention faster than their support chat.

Pros:

great structure

Cons:

TERRIBLE support

It is 22 days ago, still no reply. I can't even log on and they are charging from my bank account. I have no way of communication with the owners. It should be illegal...
How is it different from Chatfuel? Has anyone used it?

@stuticlicks Hi Stuti, I have used Chatfuel. We both are pretty much the same. I believe our competition is going to be on performance now on. They have got some big names under the belt too and have done a great work no-doubt.
