3 Birds Marketing Offers ActivEngage Live Chat as Part of its Innovative Digital Marketing Suite

FEBRUARY 3, 2012 – CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – 3 Birds Marketing, an interactive marketing agency that serves the automotive industry, is pleased to announce that it will now offer real-time chat powered by ActivEngage, the most trusted brand in automotive live chat, as part of its innovative suite of digital marketing solutions.


ActivEngage’s advanced live chat services allow dealers to monitor website visitors, identify prospective customers, initiate instant interaction, and communicate in real-time. Integrating ActivEngage live chat with 3 Birds digital marketing solution on dealers’ complementary engagement websites, which are used by 3 Birds to house newsletter and blog content, will help build dealership brands and drive SEO results.

“Adding ActivEngage’s chat capabilities to dealers’ engagement sites will allow for deeper integration between main dealership websites and related online real estate,” said Layton Judd, co-founder of 3 Birds Marketing. “We look forward to working with ActivEngage to provide our clients with even more sales leads and business opportunities.”

According to ActivEngage research, over 41% of automotive websites shoppers purchase a vehicle within 30 days of visiting a dealership website.  Yet very few website shoppers take the initiative to contact dealerships through their websites. ActivEngage real-time chat technology was specifically developed to bridge the gap between the physical and digital showroom, recreating the “meet and greet” on dealership websites while significantly boosting high-quality, online lead generation.

“We’re excited to extend the ActivEngage technology into 3 Birds’ strategic online spaces,” said Eric Schlesinger of ActivEngage. “Doing so will allow dealers to enjoy even more synergy between online and in-store traffic, resulting in more and stronger qualified contacts.”
With the ever-increasing importance of dealerships’ Internet business, ActivEngage and 3 Bird Solutions are excited to provide dealers additional, proven methods to engage online automotive shoppers and generate high-quality leads.
