Godiva Success Hacks for Chats

1) Using Templates

Templates have meant that the team are aligned and consistent with the information they share. The templates also mean they're not having to think up content and responses on the spot and are pre-proofed by the senior team to make sure they are compliant.

The Godiva team currently use templates for:

  • Medication collection
  • Medication Request
  • Booking an appointment
  • Joining their Health Care/Wellness plans
  • Updating payment details
  • Collecting weight for meds
  • Appointment reminders

PetsApp offers a library of templates that teams can tailor and add to. Godiva suggest always being open to suggestions and adding any templates you feel may be beneficial to your pet owners.

2) Set Expectations with Your Team and Have a Communication Criteria

Some rules the Godiva team stick to for consistency level of good client service are:

  • Every chat should be delivered politely with same customer service as a phone call
  • Avoid Free writing any messages and always use a template
  • Do not close a chat unless you are 100% sure that the chat is finished
  • Use correct spelling and grammar rather than “text talk”

Health Care Plan Success

The Godiva team launched their new Health Care Plans (HCPs) in January 2024, a month after going live with PetsApp.

"Within the first 3 months we had 100 new clients sign up to the plan."

The success of their HCP launch lead them to review their pricing and set it to a more competitive rate. This in turn increased their monthly HCP revenue by 46%!

Fully supporting the benefits to their clients the team aided their HCP sign ups by including it in all conversations they had with their pet owners.

"Every time someone collects flea and worm treatments we say 'are you paying for these today or are you on our health care plan - pay monthly' this engages questions about the plan."

Blown away by its success by the end of 2024 the Godiva team plan to have doubled the amount of pet owners they have actively using PetsApp.
