  • How does SalesIQ identify visitors?

    Many of us doubt that how do I know the identity of the visitor accessing my website? Here is the answer, how SalesIQ helps you to differentiate and identify each visitor on your website. Click here to know more.

  • Can I use single SalesIQ code in multiple domains?

    Yes! You can add SalesIQ to as many sites as you want, and manage chats from one account.
    However, we recommend you to generate different live chat code for each website, to avoid spammers. Since they might use your live chat code on their website to increase the chat volume on your site artificially.

  • Why chat widget goes offline?

    The chat widget on your website helps you to connect with your visitors via chat. If the chat widget is hidden or grayed out, the visitor will not be able to reach you for help. Here are some common reasons why your chat widget goes offline.

  • Do I have to be online all the time?

    You can be online and offline when it’s convenient for you. If you’re offline - maybe your business is closed for the day, or all of your operators are at their limit for concurrent chats - you can have the SalesIQ chat widget to collect the visitor info and message, and you can also get back to the visitor later; or you can hide the chat widget from the website.

    You can also make your Zobot assist your website visitors when your other operators are busy or even after your business hours.

  • What is a widget? Why should I embed that on my website?

    Think of a widget as the location where you install a click-to-chat button, through which your customers connect directly with you. All you have to do is copy and paste each embed's specific code from your dashboard to where you want it to appear on your website. Because embedding these widgets is the only thing between you and live interaction with your customers, we made it easy-as-pie to create, customize and implement multiple widgets and add live chat connectivity to anywhere, and everywhere your customers explore.

     

  • Is it possible to hide the chat widget on certain pages?

    Yes, it is possible to hide chat widgets on specific pages. SalesIQ code should be embedded in all the pages manually, so you can exclude the pages you want to hide the chat widget on. If you wish to track the visitors visiting the page, then use the tracking-only code.

  • Does SalesIQ support Audio call?

    Yes, we do support audio calls to assist website visitors. You can learn more about SalesIQ audio calls here.

  • What features do we need to use Zoho SalesIQ - audio calls?

    You can make and receive audio calls, just like a traditional phone. All you need is your computer speakers and microphone or a headset attached to your computer or handset.

  • Do I need a developer to install SalesIQ?

    If you have access to your website HTML/source code, then you will not need a developer to help you. To install SalesIQ on your website, you simply have to copy and paste the code snippet we provide to your website HTML page above the </body> tag.
