Their Goal

Making their website work harder for the business

The local brick-and-mortar hardware and lumber supply company wanted a website virtual assistant that would help customers and potential customers find the products they need faster and support sales goals.

Their Solution

A website chatbot that provides customers with promotions and answers faqs

Lincoln Davies sells a large selection of interior and exterior construction and building supplies.

Lincoln Davies worked with digital marketing agency C & D Advertising to design a chatbot embedded on the company’s website to greet customers with a mobile-friendly product catalog and a $100 savings offer.

The chatbot was also programmed to answer the many common questions that the staff frequently answers.

Every person who messaged the website chatbot was sent the sale promotion and was able to easily browse products by category. 

At the same time, Lincoln Davies saved every conversation in its customer database.
