  • Winning tip – "#tips After listening to a bunch of menu options/prompts from a chat bot, most people want to have a human being on the receiving end of the phone. I also recommend no voicemail dead-ends: What could be more frustrating to customers than going through a series of prompts just to end in someone's voicemail? If you make menu prompts intuitive such as no "Press 1 for assistance" followed by "Press 2 for sales". The prompts & call flow should make sense to your clients/customers" thanks to Ashley11.
