What are Messages?
“We use Messages on both our B2B and B2C sides of the business for Beta testing, support, and on our website. We appreciate the clear metrics and means to evaluate what is working most effectively.”
“We use Events in Messages to target specific pages for each message and link directly to our Docs articles, allowing our users to get up to speed on our newest features as quickly as possible.”
“Messages is one of the key tools in our support toolkit. Different team members send messages based on specific needs, and we’ve used it for contextual onboarding, downtime or bug alerts, and to gather product feedback.”
“Messages allow us to communicate clearly, quickly, and relevantly to what our customer needs on that page to ensure they are getting the best support we can offer without answering repetitive questions.”
“Many of our clients spend more time working in WeInfuse on a daily basis than they do in their e-mail inbox, so having a direct line to them through Messages has been a huge help.”
How Messages Work
Use the customer properties you track in Help Scout to send targeted messages to the right people, at the right time. Messages works together with your customer information to give you more power over the customer experience.
Make your messages pop with links, bold, offer CTAs, images, and more to drive more interaction with your customers. Offer them multiple ways to engage including links to docs, websites, or even to start a chat with your team
Track views and clicks on your messages over time to see what’s working and what your customers like hearing about.
Add microsurveys in-app or on your website to quickly collect feedback at important moments in the customer journey. Choose from a variety of no-code survey types like NPS®, multiple choice, text feedback, and more.
