What we'll do

Chatbots that get people hooked

The goal of traditional marketing and communications channels has always been to engage, entertain and delight customers. But how do you ‘nail it’ with conversational interfaces? This is an entirely new medium, and traditional approaches may not work.

Certain elements are critical to creating an engaging chatbot experience - make sure you know how to keep your audience coming back for more!

This month we’re excited to have speakers from the National Gallery of Victoria and World Vision sharing their chatbot experiences. Come along and learn the tips and tricks they used to engage and entertain their audiences:

• NGV - MoMA Emoji Story

- The chatbot story for the MoMA Emoji Exhibit allows visitors to engage with artwork in its natural habitat, messaging! Visitors could message an original Emoji, send today’s weather in Emoji, or share their favourite Emoji with the chatbot. In response, the chatbot tells the story of how Emoji planted the seeds for the explosive growth of a new visual language.

• World Vision - 40 Hour Famine Backpack Challenge

- World Vision wanted to deepen the level of engagement and increase donations for their 40HF Backpack Challenge, which consists of 12 challenges run over 40 hours. The chatbot provided push messages for each of the challenges in a story-based format. It was able to make great use of their video and image assets, immersing the users in the experience World Vision had created.
