Switching from Drift to Intercom is easy. You’ll spend less time ‘building’ bots and setting up ‘playbooks’, and more time on converting your qualified leads into customers.

You can start capturing, qualifying and converting more leads quickly. Here’s how to get started:

Keep your leads’ and users’ details 

To get started, you can easily import your users and leads from Drift to Intercom

Automatically qualify your leads in seconds

You were probably using Drift’s bot, LeadBot, before. To set it up, you had to feed it questions, keywords and create a bot for every new scenario.

With our bot, Operator, the setup process is quick. You can start automatically capturing and qualifying your leads in seconds. You can let Operator handle the simple stuff so you can focus on what only humans can do.

Nurture leads with with targeted messages

Converting your leads into paying customers takes more than booking meetings.

When you used Drift, you used ‘playbooks’ to send messages to your leads. With Intercom, you can create an intelligent series of messages based on any data or behaviour, to encourage your leads or users to take the next steps or to complete a goal. 

You can also A/B test your auto messages to capture more leads, and choose from different message styles to better engage them. 

Convert leads with the inbox for sales teams 

With our Inbox product, you can see every interaction with each lead - from when they first chat with you to when they become a paying customer.

Here are just some of the ways sales teams can benefit from using Inbox:

Capture and convert more leads with apps

You can generate quality leads faster by using apps from the Intercom App Store. You can add apps to your Messenger home to nurture leads faster, and you can share some apps in conversations.
