How people are discovering and consuming books is changing. Authorbot, a new service offering publishers, agents and authors specific bot, AI and messaging services is working to monetise this shift. Created by BAM Mobile, digital innovation experts who create author chatbots on platforms including Facebook Messenger and Slack, and deliver voice activated book discovery and reading services for Amazon Echo and Google Now, the bot helps authors to exploit new platforms, attract and engage new readers, using new technology.
Authorbot offers a way to quickly and easily create an author chatbot that readers can interact with – without adding to author time commitment or cost. The chatbots create an authentic conversation with readers using AI, Neuro-linguistic programming and guided elements, and Authors have the option to jump into conversations to support book tours or conduct Q&As. The chatbot can also be used for pre-marketing ahead of launch, for teaser chapters, reveals or announcements.
To give readers a compelling experience, Authors can integrate video, audio, images, emojis, or animated gifs. Author interviews, reviews or book extracts can also be added and personalised for each user so their book discovery or reading experience is unique to them.
Already, over 4 billion people are using BAM Mobile’s main messaging platforms on a regular basis.
