Building a Bot with Chatfuel without Coding

One of the most easy to create chatbot platforms on the market is Chatfuel. You don’t even need complex programming skills, and you can create chatbots to engage with your audience on messengers.

For this example, I will make a chatbot to learn American Sign Language. The Facebook page is ASLBOT.

  2. Choose a template or create a blank chatbot.
    You can choose from Full-Featured Templates or click Create a blank Chatbot. As we will be building a bot from scratch, choose create a blank chatbot. Once it’s done, you can rename it by clicking the gear icon. For this example, I will rename it to ASLBot.Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 1.54.08 PM.png
  3. It’s time to edit, you can add content to your bot, it can be text cards or images and you can set up AI rules in the AI Setup to make your bot understand the messages.
  4. You can always test your bot before connecting it to your Facebook page.
