How to integrate Zoho SalesIQ with Zoho Backstage

Integrating with Zoho SalesIQ

Zoho SalesIQ allows you to track and interact with website visitors in real time. Integrating it with your Backstage portal helps you better understand who's visiting your event microsite, and how long they stay there. It also has live chat facilities to make contacting your microsite visitors and potential attendees easier.

  1. Click Settings in the top bar of your portal.
  2. Click the Integration tab.
  3. Click the Live chat and visitor tracking tab in the left pane. The Zoho SalesIQ section will be displayed in the right pane.

Using SalesIQ 

Add the live chat and visitor tracking features to your event microsite through Zoho SalesIQ. Engage with your visitors, prospects, and attendees with proactive chat, and build lasting relationships. All event microsites will be tracked as one website in SalesIQ, which means all visitor data will include a history of their interaction with the events in your portal.

Customize the chat widget

Give the widget a look and feel that goes well with the theme of your event microsite. The chat widget can be customized from your SalesIQ account to modify the appearance of the chat widget and chat window.

Keep track of microsite visitors 

Get information on microsite visitors by tracking them from SalesIQ, such as how long they've been on your microsite, as well as information like visitor name or unique ID, country flag, time spent on the site, their visit history, and the actions they've performed in your microsite. You can also use advanced features that enable you to know more about the visitor before initiating a chat with them.

Answer a message from a visitor 

Promptly answer queries and provide clarification to users. All conversations will be available as history in your SalesIQ account.

Note: The chat pop-up will be open on the screen for one minute. After that, these messages will be added as missed visitors to your notifications and the Missed module.

Initiate a conversation with an visitor  

Start conversations with visitors, and help them figure out how they want to proceed. Use advanced tracking features to know more about the visitor before initiating a chat with them.
