      "Chatbots Magazine specializes in all things related to chatbots. It claims to be the number one place to learn about them. It has over 400 botmakers submitting articles. I would say it does a fine job of addressing the problem."

      "This Bot Builder SDK is an amazing resource for anyone looking to get started building your own bot. It not only provided initial reading material to be prepared, but the examples and samples really helped me see what some of the options would be. I recommend this for anyone as their first step when looking for how to start bot building."

      "This seems to be very "high tech". Coming from me where isn't the "most techy", things on the app were somewhat hard to understand. Seemed like an overload of information. It was really rough to follow the flow of say setting up the bot and such and could definitely see the average users maybe looking for something a little simpler."

      "It says " people have a wrong notion that creating and managing a chatbot is a difficult and involves complex programming." Well one would of course think that and I believe that a good one still requires that to be honest. I tried it out and really you are just making a digital answering amchine with some personality and smalltalk. Strictly for fun"

      "I've been in charge of managing the social media front of my business, but I have very limited resources to really respond to any comments made there. Often times the information asked for in these comments is obvious information, but hard to disseminate. I've seen some very effective chat bots and robo callers that can disseminate this information, but I never had the technical know how to implement these myself. I was surprised to come across Botsify. It's a service that easily grants access to laymen to a programmable bot that fulfills this need. The bot isn't perfect, its obviously no living and breathing human, but its usually extremely helpful and it's far better than not having any interact-able aide. After it was set. I asked it about some information about my company, and it answered most of the questions exactly right!"
