Ways To Direct Customers On WhatsApp Chatbot

There are broadly 5 ways to get your customers on your official WhatsApp Business API number and get them to start the conversation with your WhatsApp Chatbot.

1. Direct To WhatsApp Ads

This would be the channel through which the majority of the customers would be landing on your WhatsApp Chatbot. In Facebook Ads and other social media Ads, there is an option to run Direct to WhatsApp Ads. By choosing this option, you can configure the pre-filled first message that the customer will be sending to the WhatsApp Chatbot. This pre-filled first message is configured according to different pages so that the customers can be tagged accordingly in the AiSensy Platform.

Once the users are tagged, the marketers can use the AiSensy Platform to send very targeted and personalised campaigns to a different set of users according to their tags. For instance, a customer came to your WhatsApp Chatbot looking for Email Marketing, a tag for "email marketing" will automatically be assigned to the user. Now, it's more likely for him to opt for other marketing services as well such as SMS Marketing, Content Marketing, etc. Hence, the marketers can send the users with "email marketing" tag the SMS Marketing & Content Marketing campaigns. Moreover, these campaigns can be Dynamic as well!

2. Through SMS Campaigns

SMS campaigns may not have proven beneficial as a part of your marketing campaign to convert customers but they can be used to get the customers on WhatsApp. To get all the old leads and newly generated leads on the WhatsApp Business API number, a dedicated SMS campaign insisting the users get connected with the company's Official WhatsApp account can be sent. Once the user clicks on the WhatsApp link, they will be directed to their WhatsApp apps with a pre-filled message that they would send to the company's official WhatsApp Business API number.

Moreover, with AiSensy you can assign a 'First Message Tag' according to the users' first message which is framed differently for different products and services. This helps the company to segregate the audience based on their interests right from the beginning of the conversation.

4. Placing a WhatsApp Button on Website

A WhatsApp Button can be placed in the footer of the website with a pop-up caption to ask users to chat. Once they click on the button, they can be directed to send the message to the Company's WhatsApp account. The strategy to get the maximum number of clicks on the button is to have unique pop-up captions according to the page the user is visiting. For example, a user is on the Skin Care products page. The caption could be " Would you mind if I help you find the right Skin Care Cream for you? 😉".

These personalized and unique pop-up captions can only be beneficial if we can map the users according to their interest for future WhatsApp Campaigns. This can be perfectly done in the AiSensy Platform. With AiSensy, you get the benefit to assigning an automated First Message Tag. Now you can segregate the audience on the basis of which page they have landed on WhatsApp and run targeted campaigns accordingly.

5. Display WhatsApp Number

This particular way is best suitable for companies that run offline Ads such as TV Ads, Billboards Ads, Print Media, Flyers, etc. In these kinds of Ads, the company can place the WhatsApp Business API number somewhere in the Ad graphic or ask the users to message this number on WhatsApp where the WhatsApp chatbot is there to welcome and convert them. Such kinds of campaigns are done by various big companies such as Asian Paints, Xiaomi, etc.
