Challenges

Solutions

The Customer Success team (CSM) at WebEngage understood the goals and challenges thoroughly. They suggested team Headout leverages on-site surveys to capture email leads on the website. The aim is to grab users’ attention before they exit the blog page and encourage blog visitors to subscribe to the blog by sharing their email address.
