So setting up a slack chat for your sales team is a good idea.
Next thing you want to do is add couple quick integrations. They ones I did:
- Skype: start a group video call straight from slack chat
- IFTTT: set up IFTTT account and authorise to work with your Gmail and Slack
- Gmail: use this IFTTT recipe: post labeled GMail messages into a slack channel
so you can forward inbound leads from Gmail into Slack
What remains to do is you set up a Filter in Gmail settings that applies a label (say “slack”) to e-mails generated by our lead generation (in our case a form prospects fill at our landing page).
Then use the IFTTT recipe above that posts all e-mails labeled “slack” to Slack.
Here you go – now you get inbound all into your slack chat:
It’s nice you can see full message body once you click on “Show more” and respond to your leads faster this way.
