Connect Instagram with MyAlice to sell more on social channels

If you're an online business owner, you've certainly thought of creating an Instagram business account, or you have one. Chances are you've also looked for an Instagram DM automation solution, but surprisingly, you may have hit rock bottom.

It's 2021, and we're still manually replying to every customer message on Instagram, although Instagram has a whopping 130 million users tapping on shopping posts every month.

Say no more! We at MyAlice, your go-to conversational commerce platform, are proud to introduce our integration with Instagram.

Now, you can connect your Instagram account with MyAlice and have the ultimate social media chatbot experience.

Customer Support Made Easier

Running an Instagram ad has the potential to yield a much better return than any other social media platform. But the perk comes with prices.

1/4th of the Instagram user base is millennials. And they have an extremely short attention span. So, you have to be 24/7 present to respond almost immediately, or else they go, poof!

Add in the hassle of switching between apps to create and update orders.

An e-commerce solution with a customer service chatbot seems to be the obvious solution.

With all this in mind, we have been working crazy for the last few months so that you can bring all your Instagram conversations into one unified inbox to respond faster and sell more.

Now wherever your customer queries are coming from — be it Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, WooCommerce — you can find all of them under one shared inbox.

MyAlice + Instagram: What It Means for You

Here's what you can expect after you connect your Instagram DM with MyAlice (the best Instagram DM chatbot available right now).

  1. Respond faster to customer messages from your multi-channel dashboard.
  2. Add multiple Instagram accounts and manage them from the same account.
  3. Create automated responses for Instagram visitors. You can also set rules and sequences to create custom user journeys.
  4. Supercharge your Instagram Analytics with MyAlice Datalab to get automated user data, customer satisfaction reports, relevant metrics, and powerful visualization.

We have also introduced Ice Breaker, an exciting feature that makes it easy for your customers to interact with your business. Every time they come into your Instagram DM, they can tap on FAQs to easily initiative a conversation with you!

You can further train our chatbot in Natural Language Processing (NLP). In that way, the higher your usage, the more efficient your bot becomes. All in all, you'll have an intelligent chatbot that develops every day.
