My ConversioBot Review
This ConversioBot review is an interesting one. I saw ConversioBot being marketed through Facebook advertising and it looked interesting, so I investigated further. AI (Artificial Intelligence) is a huge growth industry at the moment. I also checked the software out with CBEngine. It looked good.
While this isn’t exactly AI, it can be used in a very simple way on websites to promote your business and get more leads and even sell your products. It got me thinking of ConversioBot Chatbot as a way to make the visit to my website a better experience and convert my visitors better.
It has loads of potential uses and many different businesses can use chatbots. Here are some of the things Chatbots can be used for, among others (and there are templates pre-built in the system for most of these):
Beauty Salons, Car Dealerships, Chiropractors, Cleaning Services, Conference Registration, Contact Services, Dating Agencies, Dentists, Doctors, Dog Trainers, Dry Cleaners, Electricians, Estate Agents, Family Lawyers, Florists, Gardeners, Graphic Designers, Green Energy Providers, Guitar Tutors, Gyms, Hair Salons, Handy Man Services, Health Insurers, Hotels, Human Resources, Insurance Brokers, IT Professionals, Language Tutors, Lawn Services, Making Money Online, Media Agencies, Mortgage Brokers, Music Tutors, Painter and Decorators, Personal Injury Lawyers, Personal Trainers, Pet Groomers, Photographers, Piano Tutors, Plumbers, Pool Maintenance, PPC Marketing, Private Investors, Property Rentals, Recruitment Consultants, Removal Services, Restaurants, Roofing Services, Self Help Groups, SEO Agencies, Travel Consultants, Vets, Video Editing Services, Video Marketing Services, Web Design and Hosting Services, Webinar Registrations, Wedding Planners, Weight Loss Consultants, Yoga Classes
So what’s this all about?
Chatbots are NEW and rapidly taking over the Internet. If you use Facebook Messenger, it’s very likely you’ve interacted with a Chatbot. Sometimes with a well designed chatbot, it’s actually quite hard to tell whether it’s a Chatbot or a real human speaking to you!
Huge businesses are using Chatbots to interact with people on their Websites as well as through Social Media. It’s a very powerful way, in 2020, for them to get more leads and sales without breaking the bank on Live Chat agent employees.
You are most likely to have seen one if you’ve visited your banking website, or maybe when you’ve enquired about insurance.
There’s now an emerging industry that’s about to explode and can now be exploited by the average Joe, either making chatbots for your own websites, or making and selling them to other people/businesses, so they can get more leads and that’s where ConversioBot is so useful and valuable. This ConversioBot Review covers both uses, so whether you’re a website author or an entrepreneur, this is for you.
- Mark Zuckerberg revealed Chatbots will be the secret to Facebook’s success over the next TEN YEARS.
- Billion dollar companies like Amtrak are already using Chatbots to get ROIs of 800% or more.

- By next year, the average person will have more chat with Bots than with their spouse!
- Gartner predicts that chatbots will power 85 percent of all customer service interactions by the year 2020
- 48% of consumers would rather connect with a company via live chat than any other mean of contact.
- 57% of consumers are interested in chatbots for their instantaneity.
- 35% of consumers want to see more companies using chatbots.
- 55% of consumers are interested in interacting with a business using messaging apps to solve a problem.
- 95% of consumers believe ‘customer service’ is going to be the major beneficiary of chatbots.
But how can YOU benefit from chatbots?
OK, but how can you benefit from Chatbots? Well most businesses can’t afford to develop their own Chatbots. It’s highly sophisticated technology and it can costs tens of THOUSANDS of dollars to develop. So they’re looking for a ready-made solution, or someone to do it for them …
That’s where this software comes in! ConversioBot allows all that to happen, and brings it into the skillset range of ordinary people. So, here’s my ConversioBot review.
Simon Wood (Co-Founder: ConversioBot)
Simon has over 23 years of experience in online marketing. He’s a leading authority on Chatbots. He co-founded ConversioBot – one of the leading “AI” Chatbot platforms with over 6,000 active users.
ConversioBot claims to be the Internet’s Number 1 Chatbot for Business Website Owners.
The software comes with a simple drag-and drop builder allowing even a complete newbie to build a ConversioBot Chatbot, without any technical knowledge or special skills.
It also comes with a range of what they call “Done-For-You” Bots (like the list above) which are designed to get more leads and more sales for your business. These are available from a library of pre-made bots if you take this option (it’s a bit extra – more later).
You can connect ConversioBot bots with popular Email AutoResponder software to automatically add the email leads you capture to your own email list. Remember, the money is in the list right? Here’s what it works with:
ConversioBot in it’s fullest form comes with a FULL Commercial License allowing you to sell your Bots to other businesses if you want to.
This could be another very lucrative income stream for you as there are a lot of businesses out there that do have a Website but DON’T have a Chatbot. But, chances are you’re just looking to install a chatbot for your own website(s) and that where this software really comes into it’s own.
You’ll have to do a bit of research about the current market rates for Bot development, but the figures i’ve seen are £150-£400 for a simple bot, and obviously more as the project gets more complex. This software can be bought for only $27 in it’s basic form.
As part of my ConversioBot review, I decided to try out the ConversioBot software for this website
I signed up for an account with ConversioBot to see whether it was indeed possible to create a bot for myself and evaluate the software to see exactly how good it is for the purpose of this review.
I always like to do ‘hands on’ reviews if I can, so I can write about the more complete experience. I don’t promote or recommend anything I have not used myself, that’s just my method.
If you look to the bottom left of this page of my website you’ll see that I set up a little ’DaveBot’ in about an hour using ConversioBot’s software. This was very easy after creating an account. Try it!
ConversioBot Lite v ConversioBot Pro
The basic level of access comes with the ConversioBot Lite version of the software. This is priced at $27. Then there’s then a Pro version for slightly more. This gives you more features which you may or may not find useful, it depends what you need to do.
Here’s what you get with both and the differences :-
And here are the extras you get with ConversioBot Pro (on the right)
The difference in price between the two is actually quite minimal.
ConversioBot Lite is $36 (discounted to $27)
ConversioBot Pro is $67 (discounted to $37)
I thought the Pro features were well worth paying the extra $10 for. Certainly the unlimited number of chatbots and the multi-site licence was worth it because I have several websites myself, including client sites who will be very interested in having a bot for themselves in the future for sure.
The big bonus though for me is The Full Commercial Licence to actually sell the bots I’ve built. I haven’t done this yet though.
The ConversioBot signup procedure was quite easy
The signup procedure was quite a simple one, although as is usual with this type of offer there were several upsells to get through first.
To it’s credit, the upsells had plenty of information included so they could be evaluated, and as I always do, I reject them and take another look later once I find out whether the program is going to be valuable to me.
Each of the upsell screens has a ‘No thank you’ option at the end and once they have been navigated a username and password is issued for you to log in.
(I’ve actually ended up buying two of these upsells from within the ConversioBot site after evaluating them).
The ConversioBot Dashboard
The Dashboard is very clear, with the main area offering instructional videos for the new starter. These are presented by Simon Wood and are very concise, with no fluff or extra waffling that you sometimes see with this type of product.
Simon is very eloquent and gets his training over with the minimum of fuss. It’s one of the big plusses of buying the software and why i’ve included it in this ConversioBot review.
The Main Intro video is slap bang in the middle of the Dashboard and can’t be missed. Simon does a good job of demonstrating how easily the platform works (essential for me) and how to find the various features.
The main menu is located to the left hand side of the screen and is the quick and easy way to navigate to all the different parts of the software. This works very well.
The bottom of the Dashboard screen also gives information about the parts of ConversioBot you have bought and that are currently Active.
As can be seen here, I bought the ConversioBot Pro option and have then also upgraded and also purchased the Done-For-You Pro option (and later the ConversioBot Extreme Option as well).
You can further upgrade on the Active Products graphic by just clicking the link below each option.
Auto Chatbot Builder is $47
This option is nice to have if you’re feeling ultra-lazy, but learning how to actually build the chatbots is half the fun, so I didn’t get this module. I can imagine though, if you need to create a bunch of bots at speed this will become more useful.
ConversioBot Extreme is $67
This gives extra control over when the Chatbot comes to life, and lets you limit the number of times it’s seen by each visitor.
You can also get your chatbot to pop up if anyone goes to leave your page – just an extra opportunity to engage them?
Agency License is $287
This is where i’ll probably be heading in the future. I didn’t buy it at first show because I didn’t know how it would be an advantage to me. If you really want to invest in the future of chatbots and potentially use them to scale your business, this offer makes a lot of sense.
Once i’d watched the ConversioBot Masterclass video it all started to fall into place. Building a Chatbot Agency was the way to go. I’ll definitely be looking at this!
Dashboard – The Home of ConversioBot
My Bots – List of Your Active Bots
ChatBot Templates – Free ChatBot Templates that you can use
ChatBot Training – Video Section Explaining How to Setup Your Chatbots
Advanced Training – More Advanced Video Training
Bonuses – Webinar Videos Dealing With Advanced ChatBot Techniques
Data and Analytics – Reporting Facility For your Chatbots, showing performance, goals reached, etc.
General Settings – Setup Of Market Automations, Webhooks, Branding and Language
VIP Support – 24 Hour Customer Support Form
My Profile – Password Management
There is also a top menu which will give you alternative access via shortcuts to any upgraded options if they are available to you, depending on the Active Products you have.
ConversioBot has a template library of ready made bots you can use and modify
Here’s a sample of some of the bots included. Once inside, to Preview how it works in the program, click the ‘Preview’ option. If anyone wants to see a particular bot in action, just contact me.
To use and modify the template to suit your needs, just click the ‘Use Template’ option.
It will then be copied into the ‘My Bots’ area of your account where you can then customise it for your own use.
Modification of the bot can then be done in the graphical editor (shown above). Building a bot is actually quite a simple matter of defining a bunch of functional modules and then joining them together to make the bot ‘flow’ from one module to the next.
The bots can ask questions, collect email addresses and names, provide links to files, redirect visitors, and do all the tedious things that you could automate in your business to help drive traffic and leads, sell affiliate items or just enhance user experience on your own site. The big benefit is, the bot works 24/7.
You can even embed bots in web pages (with ConversioBot Extreme) by using iframe code, provided when you set the chatbot up.
Instruction Set for a Block
This is how you construct the bots and define where the conversation goes. The user response button allows you to branch behaviour and ask questions. The response then re-routes the bot to the appropriate flow.
The Done For You Pro Upgrade
I purchased this as an extra and got access to another huge selection of templates that the people at ConversioBot have pre-designed.
This gets you another 80+ bots that you can modify for your own use, with examples. You can easily tweak them to suit. Here’s a selection for Health Care for example.
Training Videos are Included
Simon has created training videos for all of the major parts of the program, which I encourage anyone buying the program to watch before you go any further.
They’ll make things so much easier for you (although it really is all very intuitive anyway).
Masterclass Opportunity to set up a Chatbot Agency
Simon also has a webinar that showcases how to set up a complete ConversioBot Chatbot Agency business using all of the ‘done for you’ modules.
The ConversioBot Masterclass webinar is regularly broadcast to up to 200 people at a time, and when I watched it there were 195 people in the room with me, so it’s a business opportunity that a lot of people are looking at.
It seems that this Chatbot software is probably the easiest way people can break into this industry and get a chatbot agency set up for a cost of less than $300, with a website included, which is pretty phenomenal.
Will ConversioBot Work with my website?
ConversioBot works with many different website builders and platforms, including all of these, so you can integrate a chatbot pretty much anywhere you need one. If you have built your own website, you’ll be familiar with these names. If a web building company has built it for you, they’ll easily integrate it to your site.
Summary of the ConversioBot Chatbot System
I hope you can see how easy the chatbot software is to use from my ConversioBot review. It’s all very logical and I was able to create a lead gathering chatbot for this website in a couple of hours. The possibilities are endless really.
The only minor gripes I had was that some of the website screens on the ConversioBot site didn’t quite render correctly in my browser (Safari), but that’s only a small problem that can easily be overlooked, and in fact it’s been fixed now.
It also doesn’t really work in design mode from a phone or tablet, so you’ll need to run it from a full laptop or desktop computer. The bots however will run on all of these platforms with no problems.
The best way to experience the software is to watch the presentation videos here and see for yourself what is possible.
Try the bot on the bottom left of this post to learn more and see the ConversioBot in action, or view a full the paged bot here. You’ll be able to get money off that way too if you buy a copy.
You’ll be able to design bots yourself that do similar or even more complex things very easily and if you’re looking to take it further and branch into creating bots for others, ConversioBot certainly looks like it can do the job for you and also help a lot with your initial setup and launch.
My ConversioBot Review rating is 8.8/10
