How did Toyota achieve double-digit sales lead conversion by chatbot?

Let’s admit it. People like social media but people also like to do a quick driveby. Most of the users skim through their feeds, spending less than 15 seconds in each posts. That being said, the marketing potential of social media is undeniably immense.

Chatbot may be able to help you because it helped Toyota to achieve double-digit sales lead.
