Overview of Terminology
You read an article on messaging and can’t make head or tail of it? Don’t be discouraged! Every field has its terminology. We of ONE TO ONE explain to you the key terms of messenger marketing. Simply clearly, and in words, you will also understand if you have not had any experience with the matter so far.
A chatbot is software that automatically reacts to different triggers. A trigger is a release, meaning a click, the entry of a keyword, or a specific action on a website. Simple example: As soon as you type “menu” in the messenger, the ONE TO ONE menu pops up with all the necessary functions. Our chatbots are programmed such that they respond as humanoid as possible. They support you in daily use with messenger dialogs.
A flow is a dialog with the chatbot. Therein, messages are answered automatedly or forwarded for individual processing. To make usage in a flow as easy and user-friendly as possible learned patterns and functions are implemented – for instance, buttons, galleries, links, and quick replies.
As the name implies, it is a quick response. The user receives a preselection of answers to his or her question. Thereby, usage is simple: Instead of entering data by oneself, the user chooses the desired response from the preselection (quick reply).
An entry point is a possible touchpoint with a potential guest, for example, the chat offer on your website. While a user stays on your website – on his or her customer journey – there are plenty of available touchpoints. ONE TO ONE messenger marketing employs entry points to generate as many data points, email addresses, and conversions as possible.
The abbreviation stands for Application Programming Interface, thus for an interface. APIs are necessary for communication between different programs. Since 2016, Facebook offers a public API and enables messenger marketing on its basis. At ONE TO ONE, we use lots of APIs to guarantee smooth communication in any case – for instance, between our chatbot and Re:Guest or Mailchimp. APIs significantly reduce manual processes and sustainably simplify daily operations.
