    WhatsApp web chat and live chat: Convert leads in real-time 🎧

    Your website may be pretty, but is it actually closing deals and converting leads? With tools like web chat and WhatsApp live chat, you can start converting visitors into actual paying customers. 

    Visitors can start a conversation on your website and continue chatting on WhatsApp with a live agent. When customers continue the conversation on WhatsApp, they become subscribers to your broadcast list, and by willingly continuing on WhatsApp, this shows that they’re interested in your business. 

    Benefits of WhatsApp live chat

    • Boost customer satisfaction and retention in real-time.

    • Resolve issues quickly and efficiently.

    • Create a sense of trust and loyalty through personalised interactions.

    ISPs can use WhatsApp live chat to:

    • Instantly answer plan/pricing queries.

    • Qualify leads and collect user details like service address, budgets and requirements.

    • Provide advice and address objections in real-time.

    • Place orders and sign up new customers.  

    • Guide customers through the entire journey from enquiring to subscribing.

    Tips for using WhatsApp marketing effectively

    • Content is king (and queen): People won't respond to dry, sales-y messages. Create engaging content that informs, entertains, and offers value. Examples include internet speed-boosting hacks, funny memes about buffering woes, or even contests and giveaways.

    • Keep it short & sweet: Attention spans are short. Stick to clear messages that are easy to read and understand. Bullet points and emojis are your friends.

    • Respect customer inboxes: Don't bombard subscribers with messages. Aim for a consistent schedule (like weekly updates) and avoid spamming.

    • Personalisation is a superpower: When possible, personalise messages. Address customers by name, tailor content based on their past interactions, or offer plan recommendations based on their online activity. A little personalisation goes a long way.

    • Track & analyse: Don't just send messages blindly. Use analytics tools to track open rates, click-throughs, and customer engagement. This data helps you understand what's working and what needs tweaking.
