Reaching users on every possible channel
Opel Co-Pilot is also available on almost all platforms that Jetlink can offer. After its great success on Web Chat, Opel decided to use chatbot on different platforms. It was not a tool to catch the website users anymore. It became a lead machine. So, Opel took a step to broaden its area of reach.
First WhatsApp, then Instagram and Facebook Messenger joined the club. These steps doubled to conversation numbers and last month more than 100 cars were sold. It’s once more proven that using chatbots on WhatsApp or Instagram increases the leads therefore the sales. Especially when you think about how Instagram is so new on chatbots in DMs, Opel is one of the first brands that integrates their chatbot to this channel.
Getting Creative with Proactive Conversations
Opel Co-Pilot does not only generate leads but also works as a real Co-pilot on Opel Türkiye website. With proactive messages, Co-Pilot attracted more attention than usual to the chatbot and collected much more leads. But it is not all about that. Opel is about to launch a new feature called “Configure Your Opel” on their website but the page function is not open yet. When the “Coming Soon” page is opened, chatbot proactively steps in and offers help about configuring the Opel in potential client’s mind.
Using Facebook Ads in Collaboration with Chatbot
Advertising on Facebook by using chatbot created even more leads. With the Facebook ads, chatbot answered thousands of requests which came through WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Instagram Direct Messages per day. The brand aired ads for different car models and led the users to the chatbot to get more detailed information about the version of the specific model. WhatsApp was the best performing lead channel for this case
What is next?
Opel Co-Pilot is already generating more leads than any other digital channel. First next step is to add new features and create more sales including the after sales. WhatsApp Template Messages will be sent during 2022 to reach more people proactively. Voice also might be the next big thing. Jetlink Conversational AI Platform has so much to offer and Opel is one of the most enthusiastic business partners of all.
