ii. Selecting Your Intelligent Auto Invitation Criteria:
Next you’ll set your auto invitation criteria and here is where Intelligent Auto Invitation differentiates itself from common Auto Invitation options. Again, you can set as many criteria as you like to make your invitation as specific as possible. You can also set broad invitations. In the “Pets Training Program” case, if you want to present the same invitation to every user who visits your program sign- up page, simply set one criteria to begin a proactive live chat discussion when a visitor is on the URL for the sign-up page. However, if you want to refine your messages or invitations, you can. By selecting the URL for the sign-up page, stating that a user must have been on the page for at least ten seconds, adding a criteria for a specific search term “dog training” that the user entered the website from, you can then craft a customized live chat invitation that acknowledges that the user has come from searching the specific keywords and may have problem about using your “Pets Training Program” for their dogs. 

Comm100 Intelligent Auto Invitation offers 12 different individual invitation criteria that can be combined together to form specific, high-converting strategies for maximizing live chat responses. This flexibility takes live chat from simply proactive to actively engaging.

May I introduce our dog training session in (the city that the visitor came from) for you?
