There are three ways to go about building a conversational app with Landbot:
> Do it all from scratch but still without coding
> Use only a few pre-made elements (bricks)
> Pick and customize a pre-designed template
There’s no need to reinvent a flow if our conversational experience designers already built a chatbot template for your use case. Before committing to a free sign up or a specific template, you can always use the preview function to try out the end-user experience. When you do load your chosen template, you’ll see the conversational flow all set up for you with guiding notes when needed. All you have to do is customize the content inside the flow that’s already there. Edit the text, images, gifs, and links in the blocks so they fit your brand and product!
To access the template library you first need to sign up. Once inside, either:
> Click “Templates” in the header of the Landbot dashboard
> Click “Build a Chatbot” button in the upper left corner of the dashboard (you will be asked to select the channel for your bot and then be redirected to the template library)
You can view all templates at once, or sort them according to different categories/channels
Found a template that seems promising? In the case of a website chatbot template, you have an option to interact with it as an end-user via a preview (by clicking on the eye icon), first. If you are happy with what you see, exit the preview and click “Use This”.
For Facebook or WhatsApp channels the preview is not available. To see the bot structure simply select the template by clicking “Use This” and enter the builder.
The difficulty of customization depends on the complexity of the given templates. However, any more complex setups come with in-builder notes and guidelines.
The vast majority of the templates (around 90%) are free and will remain free after the free trial ends.
No, you don’t need coding skills. Landbot builder is a visual no-code builder with a friendly interface that allows for a quick learning curve.
Yes, Landbot builder offers a wide variety of out-of-the-box integrations such as Google Sheets, MailChimp, Salesforce, Slack & Email Notifications, Zapier, Stripe, etc. The Professional plan also offers a no-coder-friendly option to set up API webhooks with pretty much any tool or software.
Launching a bot with one of our templates can take as little as a few minutes. It depends on the amount of customization you plan to put into your chatbot.
The answer is yes. It would be foolish to leave behind this social media giant. The same types of templates available for WhatsApp are also available for Facebook Messenger and are a great way to boost your messenger marketing and strengthen your Facebook page engagement.
However, they are not available on our public landing page just yet. If you are curious about Facebook Messenger bots, you can sign up for free and access them via our internal in-app database.
There is really no limit to which businesses can leverage chatbots since communication is at the heart of every transaction. So, whether you are a beauty salon looking to modernize and simplify a booking system, a real estate agent looking to qualify leads in real-time, or a chain of law firms in search of a human yet automated on-boarding and HR management tool… you can find a way to benefit from chatbots.
