The EDPRO team focuses on clients who want to:
Site traffic mainly comes from targeted advertising, partner integrations, and EDPRO social networks.
Before Dashly tools were applied, only a few users applied to courses when visiting relevant landing pages. It was important to improve traffic conversion into targeted leads for the sales team by engaging visitors in a conversation. But there was a problem: no set customer engagement and lead qualification processes.
We talk a lot about Conversational Marketing. Its main principle is to build a funnel based on the conversation with a client. For an e-learning platform, this approach is the key to high sales.
Spending several months and more than $1600 on a course is not a tough call. To help them decide faster, you should immediately engage with visitors, address their concerns, and highlight the platform’s advantages.
EDPRO has two types of customer journey:
Most direct visitors to the selling landing page did not become leads.
Thus, the main task of the chatbots was to increase the conversion on the courses’ landing pages.
There are many reasons why a person doesn’t leave their contacts on the site. For example, they didn’t find a lead form on a long landing page, didn’t understand how pricing works, or couldn’t decide if the product was right for them.
It is essential to quickly draw such visitors into a conversation and transfer them to the sales manager. The EDPRO team chose Dashly chatbots for this task.
Why? Chatbots automatically respond to user inquiries and, unlike human operators, can process an infinite number of leads simultaneously and around the clock.
What chatbots do:
It’s essential to qualify leads before the sales manager call. The more sales managers know about the client, the more personalized and targeted consultation is. As a result, sales numbers are growing.
For EDPRO, this was the first taste of chatbots on the site. The CRM team launched them on pages of individual courses and webinars. Now the site has about 15 chatbots.
How chatbots work
EDPRO set up two types of chatbots:
This is the main script aimed at visitors to the curriculum page who didn’t attend the webinar. The task of a chatbot is to convert such traffic into leads.
Once the visitor is on the page, the chatbot welcomes them and immediately engages in a conversation. The chatbot qualifies the lead, collects contacts, and passes this data to the sales team to the CRM system.
It was important for EDPRO to collect emails to identify a user in its own CRM system and a phone number as managers make calls. The chatbot automatically creates a request for a phone consultation.
The chatbot offers a detailed course program as a lead magnet and talks about tuition rates.
Want to automate conversations on your website but have never done it before?
This scenario works with webinar attendees who have moved to the landing page of the course program and have already submitted an application. The task of the chatbot is to send a link to the course program, rouse curiosity, and tell the client more about the rates.
Since the visitor has already left contacts in the lead form, the task of the chatbot is to collect additional information about the lead.
We will look at chatbots in three areas: Nutritionology, Psychology, and Interior Design. The bots were set up on landing and preliminary listings pages according to the scenarios described above.
$11 533 in revenue with a chatbot on the “Integrative Nutrition” course page
This course is of interest not only to those who want to adjust their diet. Doctors often come for training to deepen their knowledge of preventive healing methods. It is essential to overcome the objections of such clients and convince them that the information from the training program is beneficial to their work.
The chatbot offers to send the course program by email. When the client puts down the email and the phone number, the chatbot transfers it to the CRM system.
Application conversion totaled 1.23%. In two months:
The chatbot brought in $11 533 in revenue.
$2 471 in revenue with a chatbot on the “Practical psychology” course page
As was mentioned earlier, EDPRO attracts several categories of users to the site at once:
The chatbot helps to find out the goals of a particular user and sends the answers to the CRM system. Having this information in advance, managers can sell courses more effectively.
Application conversion totaled 0,48%. In two months:
The chatbot brought in $2 471 in revenue.
$2 190 in revenue with a chatbot on the “Interior design” program page
The program suits those thinking of creating renovation projects and those planning to do design work. The options and the course price depend on the client’s goals, so it’s important to determine them before making a call.
Application conversion totaled 1,72%. In two months:
The chatbot brought in $2 190 in revenue.
|Number of leads captured by chatbots||Number of users who decided to purchase||Number of people who purchased a course||Revenue|

In this case, we looked at chatbot analytics for March and April 2022, a difficult time for e-learning platforms in general, and for EDPRO specifically. Chatbots have proven to be highly efficient even in times of crisis.
In two months, the EDPRO online academy team earned $16 442 using Dashly’s chatbots, spending $349 on the product.
And in six months, from November to April, EDPRO earned $145 000 using chatbots, spending only $896 on the product.
The online academy team has been working with chatbots for about six months and plans to introduce other tools.
