Now, I'm not talking about those balloon popup chat windows.
I'm talking about something slicker, slimmer, leaner.
You're looking at the Google “Real Time” Analytics and see the number of active visitors on the site, which page their browsing, and then one of them lands on the perfect page for you to gently jump in an ask “Hey, is there anything I can help you with or answer any questions which you might have about XYZ product/service/event."
Nothing invasive, just casual.
If someone made a plug-in or widget to do this soft selling, it would be a paradigm shift in online marketing.
This would be focused targeted marketing/selling.
If you don't ask, you don't get.
And you can take that one to the BANK………… unless it’s already been done, of course. ;)
