What are Conversation Starters?

As a business, engagement with your customers is absolutely crucial. Conversation Starters (a.k.a. Ice Breakers) will help you kick off new customer interactions with the click of a button.

Here are some potential uses for conversation starters:

  • Answer FAQs;
  • Help new contacts navigate your page;
  • Give customers the option to speak to a human agent;
  • Manage new incoming leads;
  • Instagram Ref URL.
