Thanks to the conversation with a chatbot, visitors get a basic understanding of the product concept and start using it.
This helps to reduce churn, so a company gets more paying users.
Time is a valuable thing. Imagine your sales reps talking to leads that don’t need your product at all when the one who really can benefit from it is on your competitor’s site already. How to understand whom to call first? With the help of additional info like company size, role at the company, interests.
This data a chatbot can quickly get during the first contact with a visitor. Just look how Lenny does it:
As a result, in addition to an email in the user profile, we’ll see tag #support #sales or #marketing. It also can be company size, revenue, etc. This info will help sales reps focus on the leads that are almost ready to buy (based on buyer personas or ICP).

There is one more job Lenny-the-chatbot does in terms of upselling or cross-selling purposes ー gathering data about customers for further conversations with a live sales rep. He collects all the answers to the customer preferences question in their profiles. Visiting it later, a human sales manager can see purchase history and build personalized upsell suggestions.
But it doesn’t mean a chatbot can’t use too.
For customers who have already purchased Lenny, the chatbot has a personalized offer. Based on the data about customers in company CRM, he suggests an upsell or cross-sell. Since website visitors trust the store, they are more likely to follow this advice and buy again.
It is a way to increase revenue without the recurring cost of marketing.
The three steps tactic of making money on upselling/cross-selling with chatbot:
Pro Tip: Don’t offer too many cross-sell choices and choose prices at least 60% cheaper than the product added to the cart.
When to cross-sell? If it is a new session — on the main page. If it is a session during which a customer is going to make a purchase, the best moment for cross-selling is at checkout.
Example 1. How a bot that can help you to make money via cross-sale
Imagine when in a cosmetics store, a visitor is adding to a cart a costly mascara. At the checkout, she sees the following offer:
Example 2. How to use a bot for an upsell:
The result: you get more sales with zero marketing investments.
69.57% more sales you could have on average if customers buy products they added to a shopping cart.
Of course, it doesn’t mean they’re no longer interested. But time is money.
Pro Tip: You probably know that annoying sales reps who hunt down lost customer dollars. “You forgot to buy [product]” phrase isn’t motivating. Don’t repeat that with the money-making bot. The message you send should sound like an offer to help before the last step of the purchase.
To maximize shopping cart conversions, Lenny uses four reminder tactics:
I mean, people who added items to a cart but need some time to think before purchase would be glad not to collect it all again. It increases customers’ loyalty and chances to buy.
When visitors return to your site, it is an excellent move to refresh their minds with a notification about items in a cart.
For example, a message about the limited number of products on-site will make them think twice before leaving the cart.
So, how can a chatbot help your sales team to make more money?
