“Be where your customers are” is more than just a basic principle of marketing. It is the foundation of effective marketing, delivering a quality customer experience, and establishing a competitive differentiator.
Consumers have a wide array of channels to choose from when engaging with businesses. But, chat is one of the leading channels for attracting new customers. 69% of shoppers in the US demand chat features from a business.
However, this communication channel has a big issue: live chat is difficult to scale. When you reach a certain volume, one-to-one communication becomes too expensive. That’s why more and more businesses are investing in chatbots – more than 80% of businesses plan to implement chatbots for converting leads this year.
Chatbots represent a huge opportunity for you to leapfrog your competitors, with minimal investment. They provide a conversational way for you to convert website traffic into sales-qualified leads while offering support 24/7.
