Maximize the effectiveness of your chat strategies in WordPress with Joinchat, using links and buttons as triggers to capture your visitors’ attention and guide them toward a productive conversation.
Joinchat has a not-so-well-known feature that will allow you to launch the chat window or open WhatsApp directly from custom elements you create. We call this “Triggers,” and they give you full control over the plugin’s behavior.
✌️ Benefits of using triggers
Greater control over the User Experience (UX): Joinchat triggers give you the power to interact with our plugin from elements external to it, such as menu buttons, links in the middle of a paragraph, or clicks on images. You no longer need to create links like “wa.me/+00123456…” imagine using the potential of Joinchat without the user needing to click on the floating button.
Launch WhatsApp or show the chat window: You can even choose whether you want the user to be directed straight to WhatsApp or to show them the chat window, presenting them with a chatbot or helping them reach a conversion page.
Customized conversations: Use triggers to initiate chats with predefined messages. For example, you can create a link that, when clicked, opens a WhatsApp chat with a message like “Hi, I am interested in [Product/Service].”
⚙️ How to use Joinchat triggers?
