The conversational approach to sales and marketing uses real-time messaging and chatbots to quality leads, shorten your sales cycle, and provide a better user experience.
Marketers, sales reps, business development reps, and anyone else interested in qualifying leads, shortening the sales cycle, and providing a more human buying experience. It’s most applicable to B2B companies, SaaS providers, and other businesses that value long-term relationships.
