  • Set up Live Chat Agents: Depending on your chosen integration, you’ll need to configure and add Live Chat agents to the respective platform (e.g., Microsoft Teams, Slack, etc.). These agents will be responsible for handling escalated chats from the chatbot, ensuring a seamless transition from automated responses to personalized human support.
  • Create a Live Chat Widget: Within your Social Intents account, navigate to the Live Chat settings and create a new widget. This widget will represent the chat interface that will be embedded on your website, enabling visitors to interact with the ChatGPT bot.
  • Generate Code Snippet: Once you’ve set up your Live Chat widget, Social Intents will provide you with a code snippet. This snippet contains the necessary code to integrate the ChatGPT chatbot into your website. Copy the code snippet and proceed to the next step.
  • Embed the Code Snippet on Your Website: Access the source code of your website and locate the section where you want to place the chatbot. Paste the code snippet provided by Social Intents into that section of your website’s code. This will enable the chatbot functionality and allow visitors to engage with ChatGPT directly on your site.

  4. Select Chatbot Type: Choose the Chatbot Type as “ChatGPT with OpenAI” from the available options. This ensures that your chatbot is powered by ChatGPT technology using the OpenAI platform.
  5. Determine Chatbot Invitation Behavior: Decide how you want the chatbot to be invited into conversations. You have three options: a. Chatbot Only: The chatbot handles conversations without involving live chat agents. b. Chatbot Pick Up When Agents Are Offline or Miss a Chat: The chatbot takes over when your live chat agents are unavailable or fail to respond. c.

 After configuring the basic settings for your ChatGPT chatbot in Social Intents, you can further customize its behavior and interaction with users using the following features:

  1. Customizing Welcome Text: Personalize the initial interaction by setting a Default Welcome Response. This message will be displayed when users initiate a conversation with the chatbot. Additionally, you can include Quick Reply buttons to provide users with predefined options to guide them through the conversation.
  2. Human Escalation Trigger Phrases: Define specific phrases or keywords that indicate a user’s intent to connect with a live agent. When one of these trigger phrases is matched, Social Intents automatically sends Live Chat Invites to your human agents in platforms like Microsoft Teams, Slack, Zoom, or Webex. This ensures a smooth transition from the chatbot to human assistance. Once your agents respond and take over the conversation, the chatbot will no longer be actively involved.
  3. Customizing Instruction Phrases: Adjust the ChatGPT Instruction Phrases to align with your specific website and desired outcomes. By including relevant keywords or phrases that point to your website URLs, you can guide ChatGPT to provide more accurate and helpful responses to user queries.

By leveraging these customization options, you can enhance the user experience and optimize the effectiveness of your ChatGPT chatbot within Social Intents. Remember to tailor the welcome text, trigger phrases, and instruction phrases to align with your business objectives and the specific needs of your website visitors.

4. Train your ChatGPT Chatbot with your Website Content

Training your ChatGPT chatbot involves two essential steps. Let’s explore each step in detail:

  1. Utilizing Instruction Phrases: In the chatbot settings, you can leverage Instruction Phrases to send an initial System message when starting a chat. This system message provides important context to the ChatGPT bot. It allows you to convey the desired tone, specify the types of answers you expect from the bot, and provide guidance on where to direct visitors. By using Instruction Phrases, you can enhance the chatbot’s understanding and align its responses with your specific requirements.
  2. Training ChatGPT with Your Own Content: The exciting part is that you can train ChatGPT with your own content easily. Within the chatbot settings, click on the “Train your chatbot” button. This will take you to a dedicated page where you can list URLs that contain the content you want to use for training. You can enter a base domain or individual URLs that host the relevant information. Once you’ve specified the content sources, click on “Train All” to initiate the training process.

By following these steps, you will have a ChatGPT chatbot that is trained on your own website content and knowledge base articles. This personalized training empowers the chatbot to provide more accurate and relevant responses to user queries, based on the specific information and knowledge you have provided. It enhances the effectiveness of the chatbot and ensures a more tailored conversational experience for your website visitors.
