Anyone who supports a web application find themselves with a need to get users pumped about new features, or explain a downtime. And one thing that using Olark over the years is that conversations are always better.
Olark has a feature that can easily be abused to produce In-App Announcements, that are app, and or page specific. The basic idea is that for every visitor (unique), we send them a message of our announcement, and we link to our blog for further details.
In our example,
- We only want to message the user why someone is on to answer questions
- When they are a specific application (we support a lot of applications)
- And the important one, “Once per unique visitor”
Gets you this, hopefully with a more useful message
