Love them or hate them, chatbots are here to stay and they are invaluable to have. From providing immediate resolution for questions to a simple welcome message, having these handy helpers is a lifeline for your business. Chatbots have become popular in the past few years due to scaling advancements in machine learning and other technologies such as natural language processing.

You've likely heard of Calendly if your business depends on appointment setting. Calendly is a powerful and amazing software that allows your clients, prospects, or anybody else effortlessly book time on your calendar for an appointment.
The integrations list is pretty impressive and because there is a Zapier integration, you ca tie your appointment times to SMS alerts, popular CRM's, and so much more. The interesting part is that the embeddable options it provides are often overlooked! They offer multiple embed options like a floating button on the bottom right of your website, an inline clickable link that triggers a pop-up window, or embedding the actual calendar directly into your website via an iframe.
Getting it on your site is an easy copy and paste widget so anyone can install it!
Their Pro version comes packed with add-ons like post-booking URL forwarding to send them to a splash page after booking but the Free version is 100% useful. Not interested in displaying the "Powered by Calendly" ribbon on your calendar, upgrade to Pro - it's worth the investment.
Need help navigating the Calendly landscape? Our team can guide you through the initial setup and recommend embed options for your GetMeAgents site or your current site! Fill out our contact form and upon submission, book a time (through Calendly) to speak to one of our developers.
Multi-Software Data Transference
This headline above is a mouthful but don't be detracted, it's actually quite simple to use Zapier. Zapier acts as the middleman between multiple softwares you're probably already using!
What do you mean middleman? We're referring to the transference of data between softwares.
Let's say your using a CRM, like kvCORE, and want to add a new lead to your MailChimp email marketing list when they register on your IDX website. In Zapier, you can create a "Zap" or workflow that will handle that. Needing to create a custom form that captures more data than what your IDX site allows? Use a 3rd party form builder like TypeForm and embed it on your IDX website. Once that is done, create another Zap that passes the new form submission back to your CRM via Zapier!
Zapier has thousands of apps that can integrate tools you're already using. Its WordPress friendly and is becoming a staple integration for every new software that is surfacing to the market! It's free to use for your first (5) Zaps (or workflows) and you get a whole lot for the cost - which is nothing. They too have a few upgradable plans that open up the possibilities for further data expansion and efficient processes.
