Visitor Tracking

Visitor Tracking

Visitor tracking acts like a power packed module, enabling you to identify and track down visitors, view and record the trail of every other visitor visiting your website(s) and more importantly it allows you to view personal details like name, geolocation etc., of the visitors and lets you initiate a proactive chat at any point of time.   

The following sections would elaborately explain the functionalities of this feature.

Rings View 

Rings view is the face of SalesIQ, which is the cardinal page that gives a visual overview of your visitors' data based on various customizable conditions. By default, the priority drops from inner through the outer ring. 

Details like, Name or a Random ID assigned to the visitor, time spent by the visitor on your website and Country from which the visitor is would be displayed over the rings in the form of small tiles for the visitors who are currently browsing through your website. More importantly, SalesIQ allows you to track a set of predefined actions performed by the visitors by just having a glance at your priority rings.


Tracking visitor actions on Ring View

SalesIQ comes with various predefined visitor actions which can be tracked in the Ring View out of the box to ease and speed up your visitor tracking process.



  1. Repeated - A frequent visitor of your website.
  2. Contacted - Visitor contacted by the monitoring operator.
  3. Responded - Visitor has responded back to the agent.
  4. Potential - A potential visitor has landed on your site.
  5. Triggered - The visitor has set off one or more triggers that were set by you.
  6. Clicked - The visitor has clicked the live chat widget in your website.
  7. Chat - The visitor had already had a chat session with the operators of your firm.
  8. Name - Either the name of the visitor or a random ID generated for the visitor by SalesIQ.
  9. Time - Time spent by the visitor on your website.
  10. New Visitor - A '*' symbol will appear when a new visitor lands on your website. 
  11. Cold visitors - Visitors who do not match the priority criterions that were set by you. These visitors may or may not be pulled into the priority rings in the mere future.
Note: You can further customize the conditions based on your needs and preferences, and create unique Presets that can suit your business purposes.

List View

The List view gives you a traditional overview of your customer data. In this view, the filtered and prioritized visitors would be categorized and organized into columnar data based on the criterions specified by you in the Customize option.


Predefined Actions on List View

A set of predefined visitor actions that can be tracked right away from this list view are as follows :


  1. Repeated - Denotes a frequent visitor of your website. 
  2. Contacted - Visitor contacted by the monitoring operator.
  3. Responded - Visitor has responded back to the agent.
  4. Clicked - The visitor has clicked the live chat widget in your website.
  5. Triggered - The visitor has set off one or more triggers that were set by you.
  6. Page navigation - The visitor is navigating between the webpages of your website.
  7. Chat - The visitor had already had a chat session with the operators of your firm. 
  8. Name - Either the name of the visitor or a random ID generated for the visitor by SalesIQ.
  9. Time - Time spent by the visitor on your website.
  10. Source - The source through which the visitor landed on your website.

Who are Cold Visitors?

The visitors who do not match the any prioritization criteria based on which the visitors are tracked are classified as Cold visitors. The cold visitors will be displayed as stars outside the rings in rings view, and under the Cold Visitors tab in List View. When you click on these stars, you will be redirected to the proactive chat window/Visitor tile where the following details will be displayed :
  1. Either the name of the visitor or a random ID generated for the visitor by SalesIQ (The star above the Name/Random ID denotes that he/she is a frequent visitor).
  2. Availability of the visitor (Green-Available, Red-Busy and Orange-Idle).
  3. Visitor's landing page on your website.
  4. Time Spent by the visitor on your website
  5. Number of pages that the visitor had navigated through in that particular visit.
  6. Source of the current visit.
  7. Time frame between the Last and the Current visit of the visitor.
  8. Current webpage where the visitor is, in your website.

Customize Tracking Views

What does "Prioritizing the Visitors" mean?

SalesIQ allows the operators to filter, prioritize and organize the visitor base routed to them. This can be done by specifying a set of criterions in the "Customize" tab in the top right corner of the "Visitors online" tab window. Based on the criterions set by you the visitors will be filtered and organized around the priority rings in the ring view or as columnar data in the list view. Doing so, will let your firm target prospective visitors rather than desiccating the firm's time and resource over visitors who may not be quite profitable. Priority drops from inner ring through the outer ring in the ring view and from left through right in the case of list view. More importantly the customization rules set by an operator is limited to his/her account only.

Presets

Zoho SalesIQ provides the operators with four predefined filters, which are as follows
  1. By Action – Actions performed by the visitor on your website (Eg., Accessed, Clicked, Contacted, etc.)
  2. By CRM Values – Prioritize based on the CRM Values of the Visitor (Applicable only for CRM operators)
  3. By Last Activity Time – Visitor's last activity time on your website.
  4. By Past Chats – Number of chats that the visitor has had before.
  5. By Time Spent – Time spent by the visitor on your website.
  6. By Visits – Number of visits that the visitor has paid to your website.
