Traditional sales and marketing methods have failed to keep pace with the way modern, internet-savvy consumers purchase goods and services. Modern messaging apps, which allow for real-time conversations and instant feedback, have transformed the way we interact in our personal and professional lives, yet most businesses still rely on 20th century technology to communicate with 21st century customers. Online forms, email inquiries, and follow-up sales calls don't provide the immediacy that modern consumers expect. Conversational marketing and sales are part of a new methodology that's centered around having real-time, one-on-one conversations with customers via chatbots and messaging, enabling powerful lead generation and optimal sales conversion. In this book, conversational marketing pioneer David Cancel shares his knowledge and experience to give marketers and sales professionals the innovative tools and proven techniques they need to carve out success in an increasingly dynamic business environment. Effective customer communication is crucial to any business, particularly in sales and marketing. By allowing your business to communicate with customers in real time--when it's most convenient for them--conversational marketing improves the customer experience, generates more leads, and helps you convert more leads into customers. Merge inbound and outbound tactics into a more productive dialog Integrate conversational marketing techniques into your existing sales and marketing workflow Generate higher-quality leads and shorten sales cycles Improve the customer experience with real-time communication Face-to-face meetings, phone calls, and email exchanges remain important to customer relations, but adding a layer of immediate, individual conversation drives the customer experience--and sales--sky-high. With a multi-layered approach that combines traditional methods and cutting-edge technologies, Conversational Marketing and Sales can help you maximize your business's performance and potential for years to come.

    I’m going to preface this review by stating that I am a Drift customer and have been for a while, and I don’t usually review many items on a online platform. This book is a great book for anyone who has not or has very little experience with conversational marketing.

However, with that said, if you have been a Drift customer, if you have been through their on boarding or read a lot of their content online, a good majority of this will seem repetitive. It may also come across as a bit of a sales pitch, as almost everything mentioned in this book speaks to a feature or capability that Drift has. That is why I rated this as three stars.

    I read this as part of interview preparation with the company whose CEO wrote this book. It helped orient me around the company, the products, and how to speak about it, but frankly I didn't learn too much. This is a solid marketing pamphlet turned into a book that I believe will serve Drift well, but I wouldn't necessarily advise picking this book up for anyone interested in a good business book or anything like that.

    Solid three stars. I feel this is the type of book to write of you want to indirectly promote your SaaS to hungry entrepreneurs who are vaguely familiar with what your company does. This will boost your company’s credibility by having a book, not necessary for having a well written book. This book was “good” just not very great. There was too much name dropping of “Drift”, which is the company whose product is mentioned all throughout. That made me knock off a star. Had the author been more cred Solid three stars.

There was too much name dropping of “Drift”, which is the company whose product is mentioned all throughout. That made me knock off a star. Had the author been more credible by writing about their competitor’s products and how Drift was different, it would be more credible. I take off another star because the book could have been boiled down into a 2000 word Medium article or blog post with a checklist. I actually think that is how this book was born. They took a bunch of disconnected blog posts, joined them together and paid a ghost writer to fill it with more words to make it worthy of being a book. I listened to this as an audio book and the voice was dry. B o r i n g. Seriously, the whole book could be condensed into a 45 minute podcast episode. The information is good, but it certainly didn’t need to drawn out into a book.

    First half is why you should buy Drift, the second is how to use Drift. (My company has Drift, it made sense to read the second half.)

    This was written by the CEO of Drift, which is a chatbot company, so there's a definite angle to this. But, that said, it's a good look at the market behind chatbots and IM-style contacts on your website. It goes fairly deep into features, and you kind of have to assume these are all features that Drift offers -- I'm not sure how many of these features are universal. The book starts to drift (ahem) a bit in later chapters, as it expands into general marketing concerns, but it's still quite good.

    Many books like this one veer into the extreme (removing all lead forms) in the hopes that you as a professional, move just a little bit into a different way of thinking. I came away from the book with several new tactics for increasing the number of conversations on a chatbot that I currently manage. I found the book to be a bit repetitive on some aspects of conversations and think that I could have gotten the same amount of information in about 50 less pages. All in all, I’m not ready to complet Many books like this one veer into the extreme (removing all lead forms) in the hopes that you as a professional, move just a little bit into a different way of thinking.

    This gets 3/5 not because I enjoyed reading it but because it was somewhat valuable. It gives good context around how to effectively approach and implement conversational marketing, and is organized into logical sections. That being said, do I think I learned anything beyond what I already learned on their blog or through their other web content? No, I don't, and I'm glad I wasn't the one to shell out $35 for it.

    Part of the future that is here now. David makes a lot of sensible points about the evolution of sales and marketing. This is a good blueprint for changing your operational model for client interactions. Think it could have been shortened by about 40 pages as some of it is repetitive but worth the read if you want to increase sales.

    Solid book on all things chatbots. I really enjoyed the first half which discussed data driven statistics of the industry.

    A Chatbot Manifesto A must read if you use chatbots in marketing or customer care, or are considering using them at some point in the future.

    Written as a marketing book - starting off with theoretical concepts and then a transition to an implementation plan.

    The book looks into how the shift from supply to demand has changed buying behaviour. Customer’s don’t care about what product they use and from who they buy. They care about service—about how they buy. The authors provide their perspective on using conversational marketing tools. Tools, that help to provide service throughout the customer journey. The book is almost bible-like material. It is not because the message comes through as an instruction manual for their product—a product that I use a The book looks into how the shift from supply to demand has changed buying behaviour.

    Eh this book was ok, it was not what i was expecting though. it's more of an upsell for the company's product than what I was expecting. :( Eh this book was ok, it was not what i was expecting though. it's more of an upsell for the company's product than what I was expecting. :(
