Meeting the challenge

The event industry often faces the challenge of maximizing event attendance within a tight timeframe. With only weeks until their event, B2B Marketing needed a new and innovative tactic to accelerate event registrations and create a buzz among their audience. Especially since Ignite is an event hosted in the US and UK, bringing together the entire B2B marketing industry to learn from big-picture debates and smaller hands-on group sessions.

In this case study, we'll explore how they strategically employed a chatbot to tackle the challenge, boost ticket numbers, and create an engaging concierge experience for their attendees.

Implementing the solution

With time ticking away, B2B Marketing swiftly recognized that The Chat Shop and ChatBot were the ideal solutions to meet their urgent needs. By dedicating their training efforts solely to a chatbot, B2B Marketing could create a helpful concierge capable of promptly answering attendees' questions, assisting them in their decision-making process, and ultimately driving event registrations.

We understood the time constraints and the importance of a seamless implementation. The Chat Shop team guided the project, leveraging our expertise to launch the chatbot on the event website quickly. Rather than burdening the client with additional training or strategy sessions, they streamlined the process, ensuring the chatbot could start engaging with potential attendees without delay.

To achieve the required goals, B2B Marketing adopted a proactive strategy, deploying the chatbot on UK and US event sites. Instead of waiting for visitors to take action, the chatbot engaged with them at the right moment with personalized messages. 

This approach proved a game-changer, significantly increasing the chatbot's greetings conversion rate.

One minor hurdle appeared when The Chat Shop discovered the client wasn't utilizing Google Analytics. To maximize the chatbot's performance, we believe in the power of data insights to make necessary tweaks. 

Google Analytics provides valuable information about user behavior on a website, enabling us to capture hesitant visitors or those on the verge of leaving the site. Despite this limitation, we adapted to the situation and continued optimizing the chatbot's performance.

The achieved results

B2B Marketing's decision to implement a chatbot yielded remarkable outcomes for their event. With the proactive engagement approach, ChatBot's greetings conversion rate soared to an impressive 3.3% for Ignite (USA) and 2.6% for Ignite (London). These rates surpassed the typical benchmarks and showcased ChatBot's ability to captivate audiences and drive registrations effectively.

The introduction of goal tracking also proved fruitful, with 22% of goals achieved for Ignite (USA) and 5% for Ignite (London). Although not a perfect measure, goal tracking provided valuable insights into ChatBot's performance and conversions, highlighting its tangible impact on event success.

ChatBot's features enhanced the attendee experience despite having limited time before the event.

While the conversations mainly involved visitors clicking menus and links, the chatbot's simplicity and efficiency kept the user journey clear and engaging.
