This is a fairly simple one. I think you should do it, and in fact I even have created a video course to help you if you are interested. 🙂
If you weren't familiar with Chatfuel, it is a bot building service which lets you do drag-and-drop editing of various elements to create some very nice looking chatbots that you can deploy to Facebook Messenger. However, it is mostly rules based - which means it doesn't (yet) try to understand the message that the user types.
I don't think I need to add anything more about Dialogflow. I just happen to think it is one of the best bot frameworks for adding some conversational "AI" into your bot. But then again, I might be a little biased, you know. 🙂
By combining Chatfuel with Dialogflow's AI, you can create nice looking Messenger bots which are also quite powerful. (But I wouldn't say it is easy to do it. You need to understand Dialogflow quite well to build this integration, and you need a programmer on your team to make the most of Dialogflow).
I actually have a free video (after registration) as part of my course which talks about a few things a bot maker should know before they try to integrate their Chatfuel bot with Dialogflow.
