Integrate Drift chatbot inside Hippo Video sales page

Chatbots are highly potent tools that are easy to use and yield great results. By using a chatbot on your sales pages, you can close more deals, reduce email conversations, reduce sales cycle, increase your conversion rates, reduce your bounce rate, etc., and this makes it easier for prospects to engage.

With Hippo Video, the Drift chatbot can now be integrated inside the Sales page.
