How to attract customers in messengers

There are several ways to attract customers to the bot. In this article, we'll find out what tools there are for attracting new clients and how to work with them.

Website widget

Widgets are buttons for switching to messengers placed on the site. When you click on the icon of the desired messenger, your client goes to a chat with your organization. The widget placed on the site allows you not to lose interested customers when they have questions about your company's product or work. All they need to do is write to the chat, where your manager or bot will respond, who will warm up the client's interest, answer questions and consult on products - depending on the type of your business.

When running targeted ads, you can attach any link to an ad message, such as a website or messenger chat. The chat link will make it much easier for potential customers to interact with you.

The most convenient of messengers is WhatsApp, in which a potential client is guaranteed to leave you his phone number when he starts a dialogue. Later the collected phone numbers can be used to send out mailings. Also, you can interact with each client repeatedly, for example, send a reminder of a webinar, an unpaid order, or send a promo code for free pizza.

Newsletters in messengers

You can also attract customers to the chat room with the help of newsletters in messengers and social networks.

Base mailings - used to tell a wide range of people about promotions.

Transactional mailings - sent to a particular user when he performs some action (transaction) to generate interest, confirmation of the action: for example, registration on the site, delivery processing.

You can initiate a dialog with the user by sending, for example, a notification that the order has been delivered. Then you can continue the dialog to collect feedback about the service, send promotional offers, additional information about the product, and increase customer interest.

Place a chat link in your messenger on your landing page, so potential customers can write to you at any time convenient for them. This will help reduce the load on managers, they will not have to take and make a huge number of calls, they can process requests directly in messenger, corresponding with customers.
