RVT.com & Contact At Once! Partner for a More Convenient Online Shopping Experience

Mutual dealer customers of RVT.com and Contact At Once!, a LivePerson Company, can expand their chat and text messaging capabilities from their own websites to their RVT.com inventory pages.

RVT.com, a leading Internet classifieds ad site for RVs, travel and 5th wheel trailers, motor homes and campers, and Contact At Once!, a LivePerson Company (Nasdaq: LPSN), the automotive leader in mobile messaging, have partnered to spread the convenience of business-to-consumer messaging to more RV shoppers.

If an RV dealer uses Contact At Once! chat and text messaging on their dealership site, they now can extend those capabilities to their RVT.com advertising as well. The “Text Seller” and “Live Chat” options will appear on the dealer’s RVT.com inventory detail pages. Shoppers can click the communication of their choice and start a live conversation with the dealer as they research.

“Chat and text messaging can get dealers in direct conversation with low-funnel shoppers, and it’s a great way to help higher-funnel shoppers narrow their decision,” explains Jeff Parr, Director of Business Development at Contact At Once!. “This partnership also gives dealers a big advantage in that they can drive these additional engagements without creating new processes—it’s the same process, tools and experience they already use with Contact At Once! on their dealer site.”

Messaging is an increasingly important part of any retailer or dealership strategy. Contact At Once! data show that interactive mobile messaging between consumers and businesses over its network (which manages millions of interactions each year) has increased over 100 percent in the last year alone. In fact, 83 percent of surveyed consumers who either recently bought a vehicle or planned to said they’d prefer to message with businesses about purchases (full details available in this 2016 survey report).

“We’re always working to stay ahead of shopping trends, and messaging is one that RV dealers and consumers are starting to embrace,” adds Shawn Friesen, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at RVT.com. “This addition will help drive even more conversions for our RV dealer customers, along with enhancing the shopping experience for our site visitors.”

Lincoln Property Company’s Marketing Partner of the Month

MarketingPartner1200x628

You might have heard the news (we’re shamelessly proud of it): Lincoln Property Company (LPC) chose Contact At Once! as their April 2016 Marketing Partner of the Month!

We’re beyond honored to receive this recognition from the second largest multifamily manager in the U.S. And it got us thinking: Why would a mobile messaging company be recognized as a marketing partner? While it’s not surprising in today’s always-connected world, here are three more reasons messaging is vital not just in marketing, but in property management as a whole:

The Right Fit

LPC has a strong commitment to communication and being “a company for your lifestyle,” as they say to prospective residents on their website. So what better way to fit consumers’ mobile lifestyle than offering the flexibility to communicate with property management the way they prefer to interact with friends: via text or chat?

Contact At Once! enables these personal connections, making it easy for consumers to get questions answered wherever they are AND for LPC teams to qualify, follow up and nurture them through the leasing process.

The Right Results

That ease of use reminds me of a quote from Mark Cuban: “Make your product easier to buy than your competition, or you will find your customers buying from them, not you.” And it seems to hold true for multifamily leasing as well, based on a 60-day analysis of communities before and after adding Contact At Once! messaging:

  • One LPC community saw a 164% increase in leases (with only a 38% increase in website traffic).
  • Another was able to increase leases almost 46%…even during a slow November-December stretch where web traffic declined 14%.

Were those results due just to mobile messaging? Maybe not, but messaging’s fast convenience can boost overall interactions, which means more chances to influence leasing decisions!

The Right Consumer Experience

This all adds up to a streamlined, at-your-attention, mobile-focused experience. At Contact At Once!, we believe that if you can be there, ready to help in all the moments that matter to a consumer—whether prospect or resident—you’re going to increase loyalty. Such availability and responsiveness are vital to the customer experience today, which has been called the new “battleground” for business.

LPC lives and breathes that sort of experience, and we’re so proud to be a partner in it!

Check out our recent interview with Sheri Killingsworth, Lincoln’s VP of Marketing & Communications.

CDK Global & Contact At Once! Team to Offer Auto Shoppers Customized Website Experiences

Through a first-of-its-kind initiative, CDK Global, provider of integrated technology solutions for more than 26,000 vehicle dealerships and the industry’s largest data warehouse of shopper behavior, will partner with Contact At Once!, a LivePerson Company, to share behavioral data that enables delivery of dynamic and customized experiences for website visitors.

Contact At Once!, the automotive industry’s most widely deployed mobile messaging platform, is used to manage millions of conversations with consumers each year. Under the new agreement, consumer data from CDK’s treasure trove of insights will be used to offer customized content to consumers based on shopping patterns and to help dealers have a better understanding of a shopper’s needs when they choose to engage via chat or text.

“Both CDK and Contact At Once! share an ultimate goal: helping dealers make meaningful connections with more potential buyers,” says John Hanger, Contact At Once! general manager. “For Contact At Once! customers, this partnership puts highly relevant shopper insights at their fingertips, enabling more effective salesmanship via chat and text conversations, which can mean converting a higher percentage of anonymous shoppers into valuable sales leads.”

The Atlanta Journal Constitution Names LivePerson a Winner of the Atlanta Metro Area 2016 Top Workplaces Award

NEW YORK, March 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — LivePerson, Inc. (NASDAQ: LPSN), has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Atlanta Journal Constitution. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

LivePerson, a leading provider of mobile and online messaging, helps facilitate meaningful connections between brands and consumers. “We are honored to be named among the 2016 Top Workplaces in Atlanta, and it shows that our mission of creating meaningful connections is truly being lived out in our company culture,” says John Hanger, general manager of Contact At Once!, a LivePerson company.

Atlanta-based LivePerson staff will be in new state-of-the-art facilities with an innovative open design at Avalon Park in Alpharetta next month. “We have rapidly expanded our presence in metro Atlanta and are excited to have our entire team in one space with room to grow,” Hanger says.
