ABA Meetups

On Thursday, June 11, at 1:00 p.m. ET, the American Booksellers Association will present a Technology Meetup on using chatbots for online orders.

The event will feature Angela Trigg of Haunted Bookshop in Mobile, Alabama, who has created a chatbot through which customers can place orders on the store’s website. The chatbot can detect if someone wants to order a book and then asks questions (like title, author, etc.) and records the answers to create an order note for the store through a third-party service. In this session, booksellers will hear about the online tools Trigg used and how she set it up, as well as see a demonstration of how it works from the customer side.

Tomorrow, June 4, will feature a Marketing Meetup on customer retention.
