Why social channels should be part of your communications strategy

Social channels are a quick and simple way for customers to make contact with their dealership whenever they need to, whatever the time of day or night.

There are numerous benefits for dealers, including:

  • More leads… turn chats into sales opportunities by communicating with clients in a convenient and mobile-friendly way. 
  • Better quality leads… while most other lead sources deliver Marketing Qualified Leads (MQLs), leads generated through social chats are far more engaging, building rapport and confidence with your prospects. These Sales Qualified Leads (SQLs) result in a much superior conversion rate from leads to cars sold.
  • Effective time management... make your sales team time efficient by using social channels to automate sales appointments such as showroom visits or test drives.  
Make WhatsApp part of your communications strategy:

Activating your social channels

This short guide will show you how to improve lead generation by activating the following social channels: 

Here, we'll recommend some simple configurations and show you some links towards a more advanced setup. 

WhatsApp Business 

1. Add WhatsApp Business to your Web1on1 account 

Let's begin by applying for a WhatsApp Business account in the Web1on1 Automotive Messaging Platform.

In your Channels section,  click on WhatsApp to start the application process. Then, follow carefully the five steps to initiate the process. 

For a step-by-step guide, consult our dedicated article.

2. Add a WhatsApp Call to Action (CTA) button to your website 

You can place a button anywhere on your website inviting website visitors to initiate a chat. The first thing you will need to do is create a WhatsApp link.

The structure of the WA Link is always the same:

For example:

  • The sentence is “Hello, I would like to make a service appointment for my vehicle”
  • And the sample phone number is as follows: +31858883598

The link will look like this, where the spaces are automatically replaced by the code %20

Then, use that link behind a Call to Action:

3. Receiving WhatsApp chats in the Web1on1 messaging platform

When your team is online, by default, all the chats generated by WhatsApp will land in your Chat inbox, meaning that you don't have anything to do apart from reply. If you need to receive the WhatsApp chats in different inboxes, read more about Routing configurations.

If you already benefit from Web1on1 agents services, you don't have to do anything - we will take on those new chats and generate leads for you.
