If you are not a programmer, the following tips will help you build your Dialogflow ES FAQ chatbot quickly.
Learn the basics
If you don’t learn the building blocks of Dialogflow, you might end up re-inventing the NLU wheel. Instead, just spend some time learning the basics.
Learn the must know features
I have created a list here.
Learn about the agent ZIP file
Dialogflow provides a feature where you can export and import the agent ZIP file. This has a major benefit – you can automatically generate a Dialogflow ES FAQ chatbot by typing out all the intents in a spreadsheet app like Excel or Google Sheets.
The FAQ bot generator tool is one example, but there are other tools which can help speed up your bot’s development. Check out the BotFlo app for more information.
So this is (in my obviously very biased opinion) the fastest way to build your Dialogflow ES bot:
a) buy the Learn Dialogflow ES course bundle
b) it automatically includes 3 months access to the BotFlo app
c) Free Email Consultation (bonus offer for non-programmers) – send me an email (reply to the purchase confirmation email from step 1) with more details about the bot you are building. I will send you a detailed email response with tips and suggestion on how to use the course bundle and BotFlo app for building your chatbot
How does this help?
In my experience, many of my clients often over-complicate their bot development. They can usually speed up their bot development by at least 2x just by keeping things simple. My courses, tools and email can help you build your bot without overcomplicating things.
Free: Dialogflow ES Crash course for non-programmers I recently changed the name of my website from Mining Business Data to BotFlo. To help spread the word, and to hopefully get people to bookmark my website, I am making a set of my training courses free for a few weeks. Learn more
"The magic key I needed as a non-programmer" The custom payload generator was the magic key I needed (as a non-programmer) to build a good demo with rich responses in DialogFlow Messenger. I've only used it for 30 minutes and am thrilled. I've spent hours trying to figure out some of the intricacies of DialogFlow on my own. Over and over, I kept coming back to Aravind's tutorials available on-line. I trust the other functionalities I learn to use in the app will save me additional time and heartburn. - Kathleen R Cofounder, gathrHealth
