I learned about Drift from several companies with whom I do business. It is an incredible tool to help me warm right up to people coming to my site needing help. The only thing I did not like about it is the blinking of message notification on my browser tab but actually what can be done is simply click on that and it goes away. It is a bit expensive but people have the ability to book right there in the chat. Being able to start the conversation without feeling weird and creepy. -via Capterra

Drift is relatively new to our tech stack. We’ve been able to implement it with a few clients (as well as ourselves), who use it to amplify their sales process. Drift has been very convenient and has cut communication time in half. It’s pretty simple to program a workflow for your sales reps to work through when communicating with a lead. Customer service has also been great. The dashboard layout was a bit tricky for me at first. Once I got the hang of where certain pieces were located it wasn’t that bad, but there was a lot of digging around that needed to be done at first. -via Capterra

First of all, I see a product that makes you feel great and ready. I really like chatbot (I haven’t used it yet but will use it soon). You can collect data with a chatbot without forms. That’s great! I don’t know any cons side of the product yet. Maybe in the future, when I moved to a paid plan, I can find some :) -via Capterra

Drift is the world’s first and only conversational marketing platform. You can talk to your best leads real time on your page and create super personalized messages to get in contact with them. Its features mostly are created for the US market and some parts of the software can’t be used in my Hungarian language But honestly, I can’t really mention anything bad. The team shifts monthly new features. They are super fast! -via Capterra

I love that I am notified instantly to my phone so I can respond and know when people are looking at our site. Responding fast is key to try and answer any questions they have and close the sale. ConsSometimes it does not reveal the customer’s name right away. But this is not a big problem, I believe it does once I enter the chat. Helping clients to book while on our site! :) -via Capterra

Great tool for visitors and providing a great website experience. Great way to organize and qualify the visitors. Awesome tool that has a lot of flexibility to make it useful to each company. Great Sales Development Product! It can get sorta confusing with the playbooks but if you go through the onboarding – Everything will be fine! -via Capterra

It has a good free trial that allows to understand the value of the product. More vendors should have this approach with so many choices now available. Nothing to speak of. AI is not there yet to replace humans in all interactions, so of course, it will not be perfect there either. -via Capterra

The mobile app has given our team the ability to stay on top of potential customers when they have questions. While it would be difficult, providing up-front information about the person viewing would be key. Other than that, flawless. -via Capterra

It took me 5 minutes to have it working from sign up to installed on the site. Our staff uses it and rotates days answering peoples questions from our website and mobile church connections site. I wish there was a way to use it as a nonprofit with some kind of break . We don’t have a lot of resources and would love to have multiple logins, but we don’t have the budget for all the things we wish we could do with Drift. -via Capterra

Drift is intuitive and adds value to almost any site. The application is currently running on several of my clients’ sites (under my management) with great success. Case in point. A Realtor client began an interaction with a site visitor browsing for information on his market in general. Via Drift several conversations led to the sale of a home. No email contact form can match that! The iPhone app is not always as responsive as I’d like – better notifications would help – but on the whole, my experience with Drift so far has been overwhelmingly positive. We have made use of Drift to replace the standard static contact forms on a number of client sites in various, very different niches, including real estate, banking, recruiting and direct sales. The results have been very positive thus far. It is easier for live reps to follow up with leads, emails are not being missed or overlooked and the chatbots themselves add an interactive dimension that seems to be far more engaging for visitors -via Capterra

Editor’s Bottom Line of Drift

 

Drift offers a truly unique platform that expands your organization’s capabilities way beyond simple live chat support. As an entire marketing or sales platform, Drift’s focus on conversations and direct interactions between prospects or customers and agents or representative’s enables your business shrink the overall sales process, and grow leads into closed deals. The personalized approach of a conversational based platform enables representatives to directly connect with leads and prospects, providing them with direct support for their issues, or answers for their inquiries.

What helps Drift’s platform stand out is a number of unique features, one of which are the Drift profiles. Each agent, or representative, from your business is given their own Drift profile, which contains information including the rep’s name, picture, location, current time, position, and a little biography. These profiles enable users to reach out directly to what is obviously a live person, not just a generic chatbot. Users can also interact with the same Agent through profiles to ensure they receive the same level of service.

Drift’s Operator Bot can also step in, enabling users to provide context about their inquiry prior to speaking to a representative. LeadBot can also be used to qualify leads directly on your website, without users having to fill out any forms — simply have a short conversation with the bot. But if you want to reach out to someone not on your website, Drift enables your organization to send targeted and automated emails, which can directly convert into a live conversation with a representative.

Overall, Drift’s platform provides businesses with the tools to revolutionize the way they foster new leads, close new deals, and support existing customers. With Drift, representatives can speak to more customers in less time, and provide a new layer of personalized service. This lightning quick response time combined with personalized support enables organizations to boost their sales, shorten the sales cycle, and overall provide the best service possible.
