1. HubSpot Chatbot Builder

Starts from: Free

Best for: All kinds of companies.

Today, your visitors, prospects, and customers expect to connect with you in real time via live chat. But for most companies, supporting one-to-one conversations on a larger scale can be a challenge.

With HubSpot’s chatbot tool, you can choose a template based on your bot’s goal, and hit the ground running. Then use the visual editor to customize the conversation and match your brand’s voice and tone. Tweak the copy, add questions and multiple choice responses, and make each bot your own.

Because the chatbot builder is seamlessly integrated with HubSpot’s free CRM, your bots can deliver friendlier, more personalized messages based on information you already know about a contact.
Any information collected by your chatbots will automatically get synced to and stored on a contact’s timeline, giving your whole team complete context and a crystal clear view of every relationship.

Currently, it's free so we would strongly recommend you to give it a try.

2. Chatfuel

Starts from: $15 per month

Best for: Retailers/ Restaurant or Cafe owner

Chatfuel is a great tool mainly for Facebook Messenger. And the main reason to recommend Chatfuel is that it doesn't need any coding experience (well that's definitely an important attribute that most successful apps have in common), also at the same time it provides so many templates for you to use and integrate with different third party software

It works by letting users link to external sources through plugins. Eventually, the platforms hope to open itself to third-party plugins, so anyone can contribute their own plugins and have others benefit from them.
