Have you ever felt this anger when you ask something in the Direct messages of an Instagram shop, and you’re so interested in the product, and you need a reply about the size so much... But then you get no answer for one hour, two hours, a full day. And after this you’re convinced that the service of this shop will be just this lazy and slow too.
Set up fast replies on Instagram: outrun all rivals by being prompt to sell to every potential client

Then you find that product in another shop. And buy from the rival, who replied in 15 minutes. THIS IS DISGUSTING in 21st century, when notification can ring aloud.

The longer you delay in answering, the more the client "cools down.”

Fast replies in Direct messages

For centralized processing of replying, use the auto-reply system in Inflact, and don’t let your potential clients buy from rivals ANYMORE.

Auto-replies are brilliant, especially if you want to make sales, catch every client and not spend 24/7 on the phone.

What if the buyer writes at night? What if ten people at once write at night? Or 100 at once? Without your answers, the quests of all these buyers will remain unfulfilled, and the purchases will remain unfinished.

If you have an independent account for customer issues, saving a set of auto-replies in the Direct module is a must. Just imagine – you can save responses to all common questions by keywords. It’s so simple, but, people will feel your caring attitude.

The scheme to operate requests in Direct is the following:

  • Guide your audience via your bio description to text you in DMs to get instructions/conditions/prices.
  • Save auto-responses in Inflact for the keywords people usually use in such requests.
  • You can attach prices as an image or write them in a message. Also, you can instruct visitors to check the link in your bio.
  • You can view the auto-replies status and history in the Log section. It's now supplied with filters so you can track each campaign.

Remember to return to these hot prospects soon. Also, you can notify them if the price for the items/services they want is reduced. Use labels and notes to highlight these people in the Direct module.

Respond to comments fast

Reply to every comment on your posts.

Don't forget to thank each person for a compliment, an interesting idea, or a simple emoticon. Answers like this not only raise your engagement rate on publications but also help maintain a friendly atmosphere in your account, conducive to communication.

Remember that even the simplest emoji can be the beginning of a dialogue leading to order, so be sure to give feedback for each incoming comment.

If you are moderating an account from a smartphone, then in no case turn off comment notifications so that you can always find new questions quickly.

Respond to Story reactions:

When people ask you about your products in the reply to your Stories or just send an emoji as a reaction, it means they are interested – they are your hot audience that’s come out of hiding.

In this situation, your task is to react to their comment instantly and mark these people as “Interested" or "Hot prospects." Even if they don't buy today, you can notify them about sales, and they may change their mind later.

In the Direct module, you have two features for this situation – prefabricated fast replies and labels.

If you don't want to leave a comment about price, you can comment back "Sent a DM" and reply privately. The scheme is the following:

  • Reply to the comment.
  • Send the pre-planned response you saved for this product.
  • Label this person in the chat to get back to them later.
  • Leave notes about your conversation. For example, if a person asked about the price of a product that is out of stock, mark in notes that they were interested. You can easily find them later via the chat search bar.
