By definition, chat bots are smart, automated digital avatars that are capable of mimicking human-like conversations, learns by talking to you and represent you to the world 24/7.
Use a Bot to Save Time
As William Penn put it, “Time is what we want more, but what we use worst.” No one understand that better than chat bots.
As an influencer, you’re bound to receive countless similar questions and requests on a daily basis. Not to mention, posting regularly, posting uniquely, responding to every loyal follower, and maintaining a brand voice can be real taxing.

Imagine those pending posts, unanswered comments and messages, 100th request for a sneak peek into your lifestyle, etc. Now imagine all of those pending tasks disappearing into thin air—all thanks to your very own trained chat bot.
Powerful Content Sharing Platform
By default, chat bots support short, concise messages which are easier to both read and write. As an influencer who needs to write and market content, chat bots provide what is by far one of the most effective ways of presenting content—in a conversation.
Gone are the days of conventional blogging and subscriber newsletters, bots are revolutionizing how we digest information. With chatbots comes the power to tailor what you show to which visitor based on their preferences.
A bot can always ask a fan what exactly they are looking for, what they like, what they don’t like and show them relevant information. Any day better than leading them to a bunch of landing pages, won’t you agree?
Creating engaging content and leaving a lasting impression on audiences is that much easier and harder. Harder because there are a zillion webpages, blogs and vlogs out there that are trying to target the same audience that you are. Easier because chat bots. Early adopters have jumped on the chatbot bandwagon, bots are still fresh, dynamic and is a powerful way of sticking in the minds of audiences.
Conversations to boost engagement

It goes without saying, engaging followers, networking with fellow influencers and building relations with brands lies at the heart of every successful influencer strategy.
Fortunately for us, conversational UI takes influencer marketing to another level by personalizing the whole process.
Conversations are known to work better than any video, blog post, rich media ad or friendly tweet. They are bound to make your fans feel they know you better.
Begin by teaching your bot to talk like you, give it your tone and style of conversation. Focus on being of help to your followers and you should be good to go.
Be Active and Present 24/7

From Instagram and Facebook, to Twitter and Quora, maintaining a digital identity everywhere and engaging with every loyal fan is a cumbersome task. Needless to say, chat bots emerge as the go-to-guy here.
