Additional Insight Using Lead Phone Numbers
Chime will now use a new API improvement to detect the number type when new leads enter the system from the Website, Zillow, Zapier, Open House, or Email Parsing (other sources). This integration will determine whether the number is a landline as well as whether the number is valid. Because this API improvement will not always be 100% accurate, users can still mark numbers as "Bad Number" to manually void that number.
There will also be a warning that displays when an invalid or landline number is selected. This will display on both the web app and the mobile app:
For mass text messages, the system will exclude the leads with invalid phone numbers.
For any auto texts scheduled in Smart Plans, the system will skip the texts if the lead’s number is marked as invalid or is a landline number.
For leads that are coming from Zapier/Zillow (no other sources), this new integration will work to detect the lead’s name as well (if unknown). Chime will then update the lead’s name. There will be a system log left on the lead's timeline indicating what happened as an explanation to all users:
Additional Lead Import Fields
The lead import process has been improved to allow for the following:
1. Three buyer properties
2. Two seller properties
3. Four family members
Users can now click on the "+" button to add an extra set of data for those fields. Clicking on the "-" button will clear the fields.
For more general information regarding lead import, please reference Import your Leads to Chime.
Optimization to "Unsubscribe"
Chime has now made the "unsubscribe" process more intuitive from a lead's perspective which is important when interacting with new prospective clients. When a lead clicks on the "Unsubscribe" button at the bottom of an email, it will unsubscribe from ALL Chime-sent emails (those sent by the @chime.me email address), not just that one.
*Currently, the "Welcome Email" is not supported in this request from a lead to unsubscribe but will be supported in the future.
