Intercom Benefits


The main benefits of Intercom are its ability to capture leads, its user and company profiles, and its triggered messages. Here are the details:

Leads can be easily engaged with targeted messages. The software even qualifies leads, making sure to keep Salesforce synced while routing leads to the salesperson that is right for them. This results in faster lead conversion, as well as allowing the sales team to perform the real-time lead engagement.

Business can use Intercom to build a complete picture of their customer, taking note of such things like social profiles, location, activity and a host of other details. Businesses can also see and get notified when clients move away, when clients are active, or when a client is new. All of this information on how their customer behaves helps a business come up with campaigns that target specific audiences.

Customer service and support can be improved with Intercom since users only need to go to one platform to view data such as current activity, interaction history, company name, contact details, and location. All of this data and intelligence can also be used so that campaigns are precise and efficiently and effectively hit intended targets.

Campaigns can be made even more meaningful and effective since the business can see in real time how well the campaign is doing. Data on open rates, click-throughs, and other actions can be easily accessed so that improvements can be quickly introduced based on the indicators and metrics at hand.

Another targeted action that businesses can do is the sending of campaigns that are triggered by certain customer behavior. These messages can also be triggered by a specific stage the user is in, such as being an inactive, active, or new user.
