    Generating leads with a WhatsApp link for LinkedIn in Kommo

    Once your potential lead finds you on LinkedIn and decides to get in touch with you on WhatsApp, you will get a notification in Kommo! 🔔

    Here’s a small case to show you how Kommo can help you optimize your LinkedIn + WhatsApp lead generation. Our team has created a WhatsApp link with a pre-filled message, and we shared it in our LinkedIn post:

    While scrolling through their feed, a LinkedIn user (your potential lead) sees the post. If it catches their interest, they click the link and get redirected to your WhatsApp account to start chatting with you or your business right away.🦸‍♀️

    Once they send you a message, you will receive this request in the unified inbox in your Kommo account. The lead’s data from WhatsApp will be automatically transferred and stored in the lead card, so you won’t have to do any work. 😌

    Kommo’s chatbot, known as salesbot, will welcome your potential lead and provide all the necessary information they require.

    If the salesbot needs human assistance, it will automatically transfer the lead to the sales rep, who already has the conversation transcript.

    🥁 Here comes the most important part!

    The sales rep helps the lead to make the right choice and moves them to the next stage in the pipeline.

    And everyone is happy! 🎉
