We’re Moving Our Blog!

The wait is over! We’re excited to announce that you can now grant dashboard access to your clients and coworkers, maintaining full control over what features they’re allowed to use.

  • Admin: can access all features and manage teammate roles
  • Editor: can access all features, but cannot manage teammate roles
  • Marketer: can send broadcasts and personal messages, but cannot see/edit bot content
  • Operator: can send personal messages, but cannot see/edit bot content
  • Viewer: can view bot content and analytics, but cannot edit bot content

In the future, you’ll be able to create your own roles. This means you’ll have the ability to fully customize what permissions you want to assign to specific people. For example, you may want to grant a client ‘Viewer’ access

This year’s 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang went down in history for debuting sports like Snowboarding big air and Alpine skiing team event. But these events were not the only “firsts” that viewers saw. Slovenia’s Olympic Team presented a Messenger chatbot under Foksi (Foxie) persona. Designed and built by the agency team at fbchatbot.si, the bot was unveiled a couple of months prior to Pyeongchang 2018 and landed in the spotlight during the Olympics.

The Bot

The Olympic Committee of Slovenia is one of the “youngest” Olympic Committees in the world but already has a rich history of great Olympic stories. Chatbot Foksi, of course, can tell users all those stories. In addition, using the bot people can find general information about Pyeongchang 2018 and the history of Slovenian Olympic medalists or take an Olympic quiz, browse the merchandise e-shop, and get support.

The Results

Foksi was the central channel for real-time communications with the Slovenia Olympic Team. During the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics, Messenger chatbot was the leading source of information about the Slovenian athletes, game schedules, results and more. More than 3.5K subscribed fans and supporters were the first to find out about the Slovenian medalists, and they received a daily event schedule with a link to past competition rankings. The open rate of the broadcast messages was 93% on average during the 2018 Olympic Games.

Foksi captivated users from the very beginning. It was clear that more users were active on the Team Slovenia chatbot than its official iPhone or Android apps. A couple hundred downloads of the official app was small compared to over 6,700 total bot users (over 50% of whom subscribed to receive regular updates).

As far as the user acquisition costs go, Team Slovenia ended up acquiring 33 times more users in the bot compared to the app downloads for the same promotion budget.

The decision was clear: Team Slovenia dropped its app, making Foksi the #1 source of information for the Slovenian athletes at the 2018 Olympics.

The recipe

  • Text, Images, & Quick Replies: Olympic Quiz was one of the most popular features of the chatbot. The fun, lighthearted quiz asked 5 trivia questions by using text, images, GIFs and quick replies. Users could access it in two ways: either through the bot menu or by clicking on a Facebook Ad. The quiz was a big part of the strategy for acquiring chatbot users and subscribers.
  • Comment Acquisition: The most efficient, organic technique for user acquisition was offering prizes to users who commented on our Facebook posts. One comment acquisition campaign just before the Olympics brought nearly 1.2K subscribers to Team Slovenia’s chatbot in one week, without spending any money on advertising.
  • Paid advertising: The cost effectiveness of acquiring users in a Messenger bot proved worthy of the team’s efforts, especially in comparison to the mobile app promotion. Ongoing Facebook advertising helped maintain steady growth of approximately 1K users per month. The team also produced chatbot-exclusive content for these users, including interviews and Q&As.

Slovenia Olympic Team’s Chatbot was built and designed by the agency team at fbchatbot.si. Check out the rest of their chatbots at fbchatbot.si or contact their CEO Jure Doler at jd@fbchatbot.si

«Просыпайся, будем делать магазин для ботов», — летней ночью 2015-го предприниматель Дмитрий Думик будил партнера Артема Пташника. Он звонил в Москву из-за океана с важной новостью — Telegram разрешил сторонним разработчикам создавать чат-ботов, то есть программы — виртуальные ассистенты, внутри мессенджера.
Уроженец Таганрога Думик уже был серийным предпринимателем и резидентом Калифорнии. В 2012-м он вместе с партнерами запустил программу для презентаций Penxy, в 2013-м вместе с Пташником разработал «Мяту» — приложение для агрегации новостей из «ВКонтакте». За два года сервис набрал 1,5 млн пользователей, прошел акселератор 500 Startups и был куплен группой частных инвесторов.
В Telegram Думик решил делать агрегатор ботов — по аналогии с магазином приложений App Store. Он подготовил документацию, Пташник за ночь написал код. Storebot, как назвали проект, сходу объединил семь ботов. Спустя три месяца у сервиса был 1 млн пользователей. На развитие проекта потратили «несколько сотен тысяч долларов», вспоминает 32-летний Думик. Это были средства, вырученные от продажи «Мяты».
Думик и Пташник быстро поняли, что в Telegram «взлетают» боты для доставки контента и общения с пользователями.
Тогда они разработали еще один продукт — конструктор ботов. С его помощью любой пользователь без навыков программирования мог «построить» виртуального помощника.
Спустя два месяца созданные в конструкторе боты отправляли более 70 млн сообщений в день.
Партнеры пробовали зарабатывать на рекламе, но «она очень плохо зашла», признается Думик. До монетизации дело не дошло: в апреле 2016-го платформу для чат-ботов запустил Facebook Messenger, и партнеры сконцентрировались на сервисе с аудиторией в разы больше, чем у Telegram.
Для Messenger они также запустили конструктор ботов Chatfuel. С проектом Думик и Пташник поступили в Y Combinator, от которого получили $100 тыс. инвестиций. Также в Chatfuel «от $2 млн до $5 млн» вложил пул инвесторов во главе с «Яндексом», добавляет Думик. Согласно отчетности, в феврале 2016-го «Яндекс» купил около 21% в юрлице Chatfuel за $3,5 млн. Думик не раскрывает распределение долей: «Как правило, ты отдаешь 10–30% на таком раунде за такую сумму инвестиций».
По данным на январь 2018-го, в Messenger около 200 тыс. активных ботов. По оценке Думика, на основе Chatfuel работает 59% из них, в том числе боты Uber, Adidas, Volkswagen, аккаунты Кэти Перри и The New York Times.
С ботами Chatfuel общаются 60 млн уникальных пользователей ежемесячно. У сервиса две версии: платная стоит от $30 и дорожает с ростом числа пользователей, в бесплатной есть подпись «сделано в Chatfuel».
Объем выручки Думик не раскрывает. Он надеется, что в ближайшие месяцы компания достигнет точки безубыточности. «Боты будут становиться умнее, — говорит он. — Мы увидим проникновение технологии на массовый уровень». Для стартапа Дмитрий видит два пути — IPO или продажа: «Не могу сказать, что целюсь в один из этих сценариев. Бизнес для меня — средство познания мира».
