Super excited to share this with everyone. I've been working with the team at Smooch.io to design the experience of our on-boarding bot.
As we brainstormed on better ways to get users started, it became clear to us that we needed to try building a conversational on-boarding. Not only did this allow us to solve our design needs of getting some profile information in a way that's more engaging than filling a form, but it also allowed us to demonstrate some of what can be done using Smooch (bot, interaction in message, etc).
That's a bold move! I'd love to hear how it affects your conversion rates. Slack does something similar after you've signed up to help populate your profile.

Let us know the conversion rate. I suspect it will kill your conversion, but its always good to test.
Fascinating and brilliant idea. I signed up to play along.
I think you all are onto something.
Signup Chat Bot as a service?
I have some customers who would be interested in paying for that.
