Hence the conversion needs to be quick and effective. 

The core of ChatGen platform is to drive your site visitors from Interest stage in your funnel to Decision stage. The following set of features will drastically improve the response cycle of this stage.

A. Personalized messages

Nothing makes a user feel happy more than a personalized approach and hence ChatGen here stores the data of your leads and whenever he or she returns to your website our bot will greet them with their name. For example, ”˜Hi Tom, thanks for visiting us again, how can I help you?’. This way you can make sure that the user feels appreciated, gets engaged with the chat widget and you also get the desired output.



B. Custom bots with Intelligent Routing 

As a website the traffic will always increase and it becomes difficult to manage every visitor by a limited number of people, Custom bots intelligent routing can help you sort this out. Since every visitor could have a set of generic queries and some unique queries. Initial bot can help with the generic queries from the site visitors 24/7 and can route to the desired agent from the desired department with intelligent routing based on his/her available hours. For example, the sales related questions will be routed to the person in the sales department and technical queries will be routed to another, this way ChatGen makes sure that the customer gets the solutions that he/she is looking for 24/7.



C. Booking Demos

If you’re providing an online service or a SaaS product the visitors expect a demo of the services and with ChatGen you can completely automate that process and fill your agent’s calendars with meets. Whenever a user wants to book a demo to understand your product better he or she can just select a date and time from your agent’s calendar. This can be done by integrating your agent’s calendar with ChatGen and it will show the visitor all the available slots to choose from. This way the user gets to select the time convenient to them and once the meeting is fixed the notification is sent to both the user and the agent reminding them about the meeting. The corresponding agent shall be notified with all the information about the user activity on mail as soon as the meet gets confirmed.



D. Integration of ChatGen with Email Marketing Services like Mailchimp and also CRMs

Email marketing has created a huge wave across the digital markets and if you are a user of such services like mailchimp to interact with your leads then you can also use the links of Landing pages to make sure that the user gets to interact with the mail, all you have to do is add the link to it and ChatGen’s bot will take care of the rest.

Having popular CRMs are part of the businesses now and ChatGen allows you to integrate the data with them in a few clicks. Popular CRMs like Salesforce, Hubspot, Zoho, Freshsales, etc. can be integrated to ChatGen, along with these popular CRMs if you have a custom or inbuilt CRM they can be easily integrated as well through ChatGen APIs.  Now even if you don’t have a CRM we’ve got you covered, all the details of your leads will be available on our dashboard which you can access anytime. ChatGen makes sure that all your lead details are secured and saved.


E. Click to Conversation and Context Based Flows

Since a web page has multiple types of information we can build multiple bot for such types of scenarios. Let’s take an example to understand Click to Conversation, consider a pricing page where there are options like connect to support, book a demo, etc. Here when a visitor clicks on connect to support a different bot will pop up and when they click on book a demo another flow would pop up, similarly more flows can be used for different scenarios. The same is valid for URLs as well. This makes sure that the user is interacting with the most appropriate flow for maximum results.


3. Decision

The third stage is the decision making phase in which the consumers make a decision of going ahead and making a purchase from that particular company. In order to help consumers take the decision many marketers understand the potential leads based on the information on activities done by the leads in their previous stages and recommend content accordingly to take the final decision.

ChatGen provides a lot of information about the user to understand and recommend the content accordingly.

A. Lead information

Lead captured through the chat widget will also capture a lot of other information about the user and all the user information can be accessed by the agents and admin. We divide the information into three segments.

1. User default info: We store the user default information like email, phone number, browser name, device type and OS name. We also collect the company details based on the email ID (using clearbit).

2. User custom attributes: We can store specific input given by the user during the conversation. For example, his/her company name, the kind of solution he/she is looking for and category, etc.

3. User Geo attributes: Based on the IP address, we store different location attributes of the user.

4. UTM attributes of users: Different UTM attributes are stored and are also updated accordingly.



B. Lead journey and conversation links

1. The complete journey of the visitor shall be displayed with respect to the time of the event in a flow. Agents can get an overview by understanding this journey.

2. Share the lead conversation using links and email notifications. Agents can check their lead’s conversation using the conversation link. Agents can also search and filter data using different filters to understand the conversations and leads better.


4. Action

Action is the final stage of the sales funnel in which the customer conducts an action which the company desires. This action is nothing but a customer making a purchase. During this stage a human salesperson steps in to make the purchase happen. But in cases where the purchase is a small one even the chatbot can let the customer purchase their desired product or service.
