New Audience Capabilities Added to Smartloop Conversational AI Platform

The Audience feature allows you to segment, nurture and engage your chatbot subscribers on all supported channels (web sites, Messenger and Viber). It is available to all Smartloop users in all plans, including in the free Starter plan.

Marketers and public relations specialists know that audience segmentation is important for better communication. Audience segmentation is the process of dividing an audience into smaller groups, with similar characteristics, wants and needs. The better you can segment your audience, the more relevant message you can send.

We are pleased to announce that we have extended the Smartloop Conversational AI Platform with a new feature:

Audience

It is a new section within the Smartloop conversation builder which allows you to keep track of your chatbot subscribers, to review your subscriber list and to identify and segment your audience. It also gives you access to your reachable users, when the user first visited the chatbot and when was the last time they chatted with the conversational agent.

Filter Your Audience and Save It as Segments

You can create and save custom segments by using the filtering options. The available filtering options are:

By user (as shown in the screenshot below). Here we will show the user information which is provided to us by the channel vendor:

  • Facebook: user ID, Photo, First Name, Last Name, Time zone, Locale, Gender, Reachable
  • Viber: user ID, Photo, First Name, Last Name, Time zone, Locale, Reachable

By variable. Here you see a list of all variables, which have been set in the chatbot.
