Optimize Sales: Essential WhatsApp Chatbot Tactics

How to Set Up a WhatsApp Chatbot?

Every successful WhatsApp chatbot encompasses the following three elements:

【1】Interactive Buttons to Engage with Customers

The most commonly used interactive buttons on WhatsApp by merchants include list message buttons, quick replies, and purchase link buttons, offering up to 10 options, with a minimum of one. When customers click your online link (such as a Facebook ad) and start a conversation with you on WhatsApp, use interactive buttons to display various options and instantly answer customer responses. Application scenarios include:

  • Company background
  • Product information
  • Frequently asked questions
  • Latest promotions

Interactive buttons instantly respond to customer queries, shorten waiting times, enhance the consumer experience, reduce customer churn, and eliminate the need for additional manpower.

【2】Regular Broadcasting

To understand user needs and pain points, and to provide corresponding services. Regularly broadcast information of interest to potential customers through WhatsApp broadcasts, enticing them to reply, such as:

  • Free consultations
  • Industry information
  • Free seminars
  • E-books
  • Seasonal promotion tips
  • New product information
  • Coupons

If a customer expresses interest in your information and requests it, you can tag that contact accordingly. For example, if a contact requests a limited-time offer on Korean cosmetics, tag them as “Korean Cosmetics” to indicate their interest in such products, and so forth.

Key points to note in the regular broadcasting process:

  • Encourage users to subscribe to your newsletter, allowing message sending and avoiding spam classification
  • Use customer management tools like VIMOS to categorize each user for personalized product/service push

【3】Personalized Product and Service Recommendations

The ultimate goal of a WhatsApp chatbot, besides answering customer queries, is to encourage purchases and increase sales. Premature or mass messaging can easily alienate customers. Therefore, categorize your contact list based on customers’ interests or preferences, and include the recipient’s name in the title to catch their attention.
