As you can see, Upwork is the leader in opportunities for chatbot development jobs. The first one on the list – SimplyHired – is just a vacancies marketplace that doesn’t have any related projects. 

It’s obvious that there is an opportunity to find a chatbot project on the non-relevant platforms like Power To Fly or Smashing Magazine. Due to low competitor presence on these freelance platforms, you can get a chance to start running the project. 

Compared with the previous year, in 2019 are fewer chatbot and DialogFlow projects due to decreasing chatbot hype for business. But there are interesting things, that chatbot projects are posted on unusual platforms like The Creative Group A Robert Half Company and Remote.

As can be seen, 8 platforms are the real chance to start the work and stop paying lots of money for cold lead generation. Moreover, all the platforms support English (some of them are available on common European languages) which increase the opportunity to get a long-term and high-budget project.

How to Find The Right Chatbot Agency? [Online and Offline Ways]

There are a lot of companies offering chatbot development. You can find them in Asia, Australia, USA, Central or Eastern Europe. (Wait. Actually, we’re located there :)) The companies differ in a lot of ways, for example, their size starts from software boutiques up to international giants (with thousands of developers).

 

Finding a trustful chatbot provider may seem like a challenging task. Comparing companies’ technologies, management approach and prices can be more complicated than you expect.

 

The first challenge is massively random listings with providers that you find in Google Search. After you find the listings you need to filter them by country, price, portfolio, etc.

 

Unfortunately, some of the listings do not contain company portfolios that represent them solely as a trusted chatbot agency. Sometimes information (described in the listing) about the companies are taken from not-sso reliable sources like forums etc. All the data need to be confirmed by a company representative or taken from reliable sources: website, social media accounts or conversation with the founders, sales or marketers. I am sure you might be asking me which listing are reliable.Well, wonder no further!

 

We have been working with these listings a few years already and gained lots of leads and clients from these channels. So, take a look at the top listings of chatbot agencies.

It is a big networking event that connects people twice a year in Berlin and Tel Aviv. Here you’ll get the opportunity to share your knowledge, expertise, learn new trends and find partners or leads.

Headliners include speakers from the Chatbot & AI space, many of the hottest chatbot startups, and influencers like Microsoft, IBM, Dashbot, Assist, SmartLoop, etc.

If you are a business owner, sales or marketer in customers service or around business process automation, you must have a few friends who are working in their company with a chatbot. Ask them to share the contact info the chatbot agency. At the start, two years ago we had only a few clients. We served them very well and developed high-quality chatbots and business automation systems. It was a pleasure to have them recommend us to their friends. So, it was one of the most valuable channels get the clients.

 

In addition, you can find a few chatbots in any customer service (like delivery, retail, etc.) and try to test them. If you like a chatbot, feel free to contact the company to share chatbot agency contacts. You never know which way will work for you in the quickest way possible.

The Guide How to Choose Chatbot Development Service Provider [Ways and Places]

It could look like the selection of a chatbot development service provider for your project, may be similar to the selection of software outsourcing provider, but in reality, it has several peculiarities, which are worth watching.

Focus on chatbot development services

Chatbots and Virtual Assistants are considered to be a hot topic and many custom software development providers are extending their offering with chatbots development. On the one hand, it looks pretty easy to snag a chatbot development trend. On the other, there is a knowledge that comes with expertise. For example:

  •         How to correctly identify intents, train NLP engines and maintain the context of a conversation  
  •         Specifics of each messenger and communication channel, especially related to accounts approval
  •         Best practices for building engaging conversations

So buying a service from the provider that has a focus on chatbot development services, lets you avoid mistakes made by previous clients.

You can easily check if the service provider is, “one-shop-for-all-purposes” or if it’s a dedicated chatbot provider, by looking at their offering on the web sites, checking the agency name (guess with BOTfriends, Chatbots.Studio, Unibot and others with the similar names are doing?) and looking at how companies are marking themselves on listings. For example, there are only two 100% chatbot development providers on the clutch listing.

Proven portfolio and existing chatbots

That is a must – the agency should have a portfolio of working chatbots. Check the website for case studies and ask for a demo in case some of the bots are protected (delivered by subscriptions, require specific permissions to access it and etc.). I would recommend becoming pretty wary if the chatbot development agency can’t demonstrate any sort of live chatbot.

Tools that are used by the company

Some service providers promote their own tools for chatbot development. It has a clear value proposition, as the bot become cheaper and delivery is done quicker when comparing the development of the bot from scratch.

However the client should be careful with such an approach, first of all, you are getting locked in with the chatbot agency and technology, so simply will not be able to find another provider as no one works with their proprietary solution. And second, big players like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM have more endless resources to keep their solution relevant and updated.   

Contribution to the chatbot development community

Chatbots are a relatively new topic, which is rapidly evolving over recent times, so from my perspective, a good chatbot provider should help contribute to the knowledge of the chatbot community. For example, we have a chatbot development methodology, video courses, meetup and internship for the talented developers.

List of chatbot development service providers

Yep, I know that you are not only looking for Chatbots.Studio to be a provider. So without further adieu here is a list of independent ratings where you can find a chatbot development service provider for yourself – Top Chatbot Development Companies.
