A New Chatbot Trigger 🤖 Collect Valuable Customer Feedback Automatically
Customer feedback is crucial for improving your products or services. After all, your intention is to sell something to other people. However, providing great services, products, and experiences is a never-ending commitment.
To be sure that you’re on the right track, you need to be up-to-date with your customers’ expectations. You should also be aware of how they perceive your goods, services, or customer care.
How to achieve that?
Chatbots are one of the many (but also the best) tools that you can use to collect feedback, as well as other customer insights.
With the new trigger “Operator leaves a conversation” your chatbots will automatically activate to request and collect the feedback you need.
Until recently, live chat operators who wanted to get feedback from their customers had to manually launch a chatbot during the conversation.
This is no longer the case.
“Operator leaves a conversation” trigger
The “Operator leaves a conversation” node, triggers a chatbot when your operator ends the chat with a customer.
NOTE: If there was more than one chat operator who joined the chat, all of them need to leave the conversation for the bot to activate.
This trigger works on any platform that you use to access the Tidio app (desktop, web, mobile).
Each time the conversation has ended, you can:
- ask for feedback
- ask for a review
- surprise your client!
Similarly to other triggers, you can set the limitations of the “Operator leaves a conversation.” Click the node to access the settings and select how often you want the bot to activate.
The core structure of the chatbot you have used to collect feedback previously remains unchanged. You can connect “Operator leaves a conversation” trigger to any action or condition you believe will work best for you and your customers.
Here’s an example of how you can use it:
Below, you’ll find a template for this bot.
In this particular case, the chatbot sends a message followed by the Quick Replies action node. The reply the customer selects is tagged.
Later on, you could send collected information (tags) via the Zapier tool to the app of your choice (e.g. Google Sheets) that will allow you to organize and analyze all the feedback you get. You can read more about such an option in our article about the Zapier tool.
Tip: The template for this bot is available for free in Chatbots Template Library. Log into your admin panel and go to the Chatbots section. Select “Measure Customer Satisfaction” template.
Why Should You Use This Trigger?
The benefit of using this trigger is twofold.
First, it makes your feedback collection more efficient. When you finished helping one customer, you are free to move on to pick up another pending chat. The bot will remember to ask the customer for a review for you.
Second, customer satisfaction is seen as a key differentiator between strong and poor brands. It has become a key element of business strategy.
And in order to measure (and improve) your customer satisfaction, you need feedback. The more data you manage to collect, the richer your metrics will become. They will help you to gain and retain more satisfied customers, as well as accelerate the growth of your business.
There are different satisfaction metrics that aim to measure customer satisfaction. The most popular ones are:
NPS (Net Promoter Score)
Net Promoter Score asks customers how likely they are to recommend a given company to other people (i.e. their friends, family, etc.). This allows you to measure the level of the emotional attachment of your customers with your brand. This, in turn, will show you whether your customers’ loyalty is strong enough to become your repeated clients or not.
CSAT (Customer Satisfaction Score)
Customer Satisfaction Score’s real-time responses focus on how well businesses manage to meet (or exceed) their customers’ expectations. CSAT metric is very useful in managing and monitoring the business’ performance. High CSAT is often set as one of the main KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) within a company.
CES (Customer Effort Score)
Customer Effort Score allows you to measure how easy it was for a customer to complete an individual action (e.g. ordering a product online, solving a problem using your product or service, etc.). It helps companies to identify and overcome important issues that discourage further interactions with their websites or online stores.
