How to Set up Notifications for Your ZyraTalk Chats


Reclaim up to 20 hours of your work week by investing in web chat for local business. Not only does automated web chat automatically capture leads for you, but it also gives customers 24/7 access to your business. 

But if automated chat takes care of your messages for you, is there any point in setting up notifications? Yes! Here are a few reasons why you should set up notifications for your chats, plus a step-by-step walkthrough on how to do it in your ZyraTalk dashboard.

3 reasons why you should set up notifications for your ZyraTalk chats

Watch conversations unfold in real-time. 

Chances are you won't have time to read every single chat that comes through. And you won't need to read every single one. But monitoring your chats is valuable for several reasons. 

Knowing roughly how many chats you receive each week is useful for calculating your ROI. Plus, you'll see which questions your customers ask most often. You can repurpose that data into valuable content that converts website visitors into loyal customers.

Jump in to the conversation instantly if needed.

As convenient as chatbots are, there will inevitably be customers who want to speak to a human. If you don't have notifications set up for your chats, you won't know when you need to jump in. We recommend setting up SMS notifications so you never miss a message.

Open up a socially-distanced communication channel for your business.

Investing in web chat for local business gives your customers round-the-clock access to your business. Turning on notifications helps keeps you in the loop and enables you to respond quickly to customers who might not be comfortable visiting your business in person.
