Launching Beta Product or Doing Early Promotion? Don’t Take Risk Without A Conversational Strategy

It’s normal to be skeptical when you are launching a new product. So whenever a product is launched, it is better to launch in its stages so that you are able to confirm if people are really interesting in your product or not. The best way is to get feedback first before rolling out the actual product.

How to run a beta test of your product with Frontman?

You are about to launch a new product, but you are still in doubt whether it will work better or not. But we will tell you in this story how you can collect early feedback and opinion and cut the chances of building wrong things or annoy the visitors. Here how you can do it.

Creating audience

Because user experience matters, it is very important to access the potential of your product. The feedbacks you get from the users can help you fine-tune your product. This can be done easily through frontman, your live digital companion helping you with product evolution. First thing first, you must get the right types of visitors or beta testers to collect feedbacks on an important feature that you have to roll out in the future.

So the very first step towards adding more and more users to beta community is to set up the most appropriate audience to get feedbacks. Take an example of a fashion store or a website that is about to launch kid related products. The website owner is interested in knowing about early traction as well as validating entire idea of introducing kid section.

The owner would ask the visitors in a text/image message like ‘We are launching new kid section this summer’, get notified when its launched!’


‘We are launching new kid section this summer. Surprised! Get notified when its launched!’

In this case, you can add a user attribute in the frontman that whenever some requests for getting notified, the attribute is automatically added to the user and their respective conversations. You can check the same in the analytics and audience manager of the Frontman.

The notification message can be simply created by choosing ‘quick replies’ option from the Frontman dashboard. The quick replies buttons can be for instance ‘I’m in” and “May be later” and whenever a user clicks on any of this quick reply buttons, the attribute is automatically added with that particular user.

The “I’m in” option should lead to the action asking user to submit email or phone number to be notified on the day of launch. With Frontman it’s possible to validate email address in real-time by using User input card and selecting attribute type Email. Furthermore, Frontman validates domain as well as email address existence allowing businesses to focus on genuine leads only.

The “May be later” should lead to feedback collection along with the skip option. In this way necessary feedback can be collected ahead of time to avoid unseen mishaps in the future. This not only gives relevant feedbacks of the beta users or potential prospects but also build trust and loyalty that the brand cares for the customer taste and working fully on their satisfaction.

Adding video

Video can go a long way in promoting your forthcoming offerings. The dashboard in Frontman gives you freedom of adding a video message right off the bat. A short crispy prerecorded video message about your product/feature as part of your chat flow can get more users onboard than you would have imagined.

So with frontman, it is absolutely amazing to test your product before you actually roll it out. This will help build your beta testing community right before your actual product launch. Initial beta release with Frontman can be a good idea to get quality feedback.
