Lead acceleration with ChatOnce

Featured Image

"We get lots of visitors to our website but we don't capture enough new leads.
"The forms on our website cause delays and we miss sales opportunities."
"Visitors have to submit a form and then wait to hear back from our team."
"Our scheduling pages allow anyone to book a meeting with our team and we often waste valuable time."
"If our website could qualify leads automatically, we'd save time and increase sales."
"By the time we get to talk with good quality leads, many of them have already gone with one of our competitors who responded more quickly."

  • Engage with qualified leads instantly using live chat conversations.

How does ChatOnce work?

Most people's experience with chatbots is those annoying widgets that appear in the corner of their browser window. Many of those chatbots are just badly designed with vague goals and generic content. But that's not what we're talking about here!

First, ChatOnce gives you the choice of how and where you publish your chatbots.

Standalone chatbots are the easiest way to get started with ChatOnce. You can build one in a few minutes and then share it using a standalone link. They're great for campaign landing pages and there's no need to update your website!

Pop-up chatbots are ideal when you want to add a chatbot to a link or button on your website. For example, you could add a button on your pricing pages that pops up a customized pricing chatbot.

Targeted chatbots are great when you want to add chatbots across your entire website. You can build audience rules to make sure that the right visitors get the right chatbot at the right time.

 

Next, ChatOnce makes it easy to build a chatbot that's fun, engaging, and personalized for your visitors.

A chatbot conversation where the user is asked qualifying questions, such as "What's your company website?", "What's your job title or role?", and "What's the biggest marketing challenge you face today?".

Chatbot questions allow you to find out more about your website visitors. For example, you could ask qualifying questions about their team size, financial needs, or personal goals.

A chatbot conversation. Chatbot: "Are you ready to get started?" User: "not yet". Chatbot "We're here when you're ready. In the meantime, why not check out this quick demo video?" The chatbot then provides a link to an embedded video.

Chatbot messages allow you to share links, documents, images, and videos with your website visitors. For example, you could share an ebook or video when a lead provides you with their personal or business details.

Chatbot asks "How would you like to connect with our team?", then presents the user with options to either "Join a live chat right now", "Start an instant video call", "Receive a phone call", and "Schedule a meeting".

Chatbot actions allow you to connect website visitors with your team. For example, you could invite qualified leads to chat live with your team or schedule a meeting. You can also use actions to send internal email alerts or update your CRM.

How does live chat work in ChatOnce?

Live chat is an ideal way for you or your team to engage with qualified leads. They're already on your website and they've just interacted with your chatbot, so why not connect with them right away?

A chatbot conversation where the user is asked whether the user would like to start a live chat. Once the User agrees, a live chat session is initiated between the user and a team member.

How do scheduled meetings work in ChatOnce?

Scheduled meetings are a great way for you or your team to engage with qualified leads. You can offer time slots when at least one person on your team is available and the qualified lead can pick the one that works best for their own schedule.

A chatbot conversation where the user is asked whether the user would like to schedule a meeting with the team. Once the User agrees, they are presented with an embedded scheduling widget and the user makes a booking.

You can also customize your bot to check if live chat agents are available online. If they are, the bot can automatically offer them a choice of lead engagement options. If they're not, the bot can seamlessly offer a scheduled meeting instead.

Option 1 of 2: Yes

If yes, then the chatbot reads "How would you like to connect with our team?"

3 choices are presented to the user: "Join a live chat right now" (which is selected), and "Start an instant video call", and "Schedule a meeting".

Option 2 of 2: No

If no, then the chatbot reads "Let's schedule a meeting with our team"

A booking dialog is displayed within the chat conversation, prompting the user to schedule a time. This results in a second dialog stating "Your meeting is confirmed".

Can I use ChatOnce to add automated lead qualification to my website?

Yes, absolutely. The ChatOnce bots are completely customizable to ask automated screening questions before you invite the lead to a live chat conversation or scheduled meeting.
