This article shows you how to create overlay text for your Chatbot.
Overlay text is a short text field with an icon. These two elements usually sit in the bottom right corner of your page. These elements remain unchanged until a user engages with the Chatbot. That engagement usually begins with a response to a question.
Overlay text is a critical tool that helps increase customer engagement and click through rates (CTR). You will likely want to test different text versions and pay attention to CTRs before making a final selection.
You can change the icon. For more information, see:
