Who is a contact?

If a visitor provides contact information such as email address, phone number, etc. that can be used to perform a follow up, the visitor will be converted as a contact.

Contact List:

There are five types of default list available in the contacts module. They are:
  • All Contacts : This list  enlists all the contacts visiting your website.
  • Returning Contact : This list separates the repeated contacts from the all contacts and lists them separately. 
  • Today's Contacts : This list shows all the contacts who visited your website today.
  • Cold Contacts : The contacts who have not visited your website for more than 2 months will be categorized here.
  • New Contacts : The contacts who landed on your website for the very first time will be show here.

You can create your custom list by adding various rules, if followed the contact will be enlisted in your list.

  • If you pick 'and' all the rules must be satisfied to be enlisted in the list.

  • After adding the rules, click Save .
