Conversation View

We built Drift Intel to give you company information while you are having conversations with your potential customers. 

The anonymous visitor you're chatting with isn't just a random person - it is someone at a software company in NYC with 500 employees and $25-50m in annual revenue.

  • You can find the Conversation View on the lefthand navigation bar.
  • A brief summary is located at the top of your chat.
  • More information on the person and company are located in tabs on the righthand side of your chat. 

We wanted the conversation to keep most of the real estate. 


Playbook Targeting

Ensure that every visitor gets the kind of personal touch most B2B websites are missing.

With Drift Intel, Bot and Pop Over playbooks have a robust list of firmographic targeting conditions. 

  • When you create a Chat Playbook, find the Audience section under Bot Settings
  • Click on Visitors who... under 'Who should see this bot?' and Add a Condition 
  • The ClearBit options are under Intel in the drop down

Here it is all at once! 


We all know the power of account based marketing. With Drift, when a VIP lead lands on your site your sales team can instantly reach out with a personalized message, directly from the account owner.

Drift Intel allows you to further customize these playbooks by offering firmographic targeting conditions. 

Here's a clip of creating the ABM playbook with Drift Intel all at once!


We talk a lot about personalization and rolling out the red carpet, here's how. 

These "Personalization" tags in the Pop Over, Bot, and Email Playbook's editor provides a quick and convenient way to tailor your message to the user it's addressing.

When building a playbook, edit your question, greeting, or email body and click the Personalization tag:

This will bring up a drop down of all your contact and Clearbit attributes.

Once you select one, you can customize a default text to use if the information isn't available. For example, "Hey Drift!" vs. "Hey there!

Here's what it looks like! 

If you're technical and want to look into this a little bit more, here's the GitHub library we use for these tags.
