Your first time on Callchimp?

Welcome to Callchimp! It's so awesome how you've taken the first step to elevate your business to the next step with the power of Generative AI along with automated calls. While we have changed the call center dynamic and left people puzzled about our smooth and fast operations, we also realized understanding our interface might be a tiny bump for someone new to this domain. In this blog, we'll look at step-by-step methods to get started with Callchimp and place your first AI-enabled customer call within 5 minutes!

Step 1: Signup/ Login

Callchimp has a very generous and unlimited free trial program called the "sandbox mode" which lets you explore the full potential of Callchimp at Rs. 0.00.
To get started, sign up at callchimp.ai/signup

Just ensure the username is unique and easily recollectable.
The best password is a combination of alphanumeric characters and symbols.
After signup, you'll automatically be redirected to callchimp.ai/login where you'll need to log in with your username and password and activate your account with the code sent to your email id.

Step 2: Creating an organization

Once you've verified your account, you'll be first prompted to create an organization
Organizations are one of the building blocks of your AI journey with Callchimp.ai An organization can have multiple accounts as members. Each member can enjoy the full power of Callchimp with the pricing plan purchased against a particular organization.

An organization should have a verified phone number associated with it. Each organization comes under a different billing plan. By default, a new organization is put into sandbox mode.

Understanding Sandbox mode:

Sandbox mode is an unlimited free trial program of Callchimp, where you can explore the full power of Callchimp - from creating AI campaigns to using its API keys. The only limitation users will face is, that only numbers that have been OTP verified as supervisors will be eligible to receive calls. Once a plan has been purchased for an organization, all members of that organization move out of the sandbox mode and now can place calls to any number.

Step 3: The Dashboard

After creating an organization, you'll be redirected to the dashboard. The dashboard houses the metrics for all the calls placed. Below is a reference of what a new org user sees.

Click on "create a campaign" or navigate to callchimp.ai/campaigns to create a new campaign.

Step 4: Creating your first campaign

Campaigns are the crux of placing your AI-generated calls. A campaign provides a wrapper for your entire operation which can connect you with multiple customers using a single template.
Head on to callchimp.ai/campaigns to create a new campaign.

With callchimp.ai, you have access to 3 different types of campaigns:

  • Dial AI: Write the script the AI agent will follow while conversing with your customers.

  • Blastout: Upload a call recording you want your customers to hear when they pick up your call.

  • Transactional: These campaigns follow the same script with the only changes being in a few details which are different for each customer.

In the advanced section, you can set the number of retries, and the voices of the AI Agent.

Once you've filled out the details and created a campaign, you'll find a table entry for it and redirected to the campaign details page.

Here you can view the details for the campaigns. Head over to the scripts tab to select your script.
While blastout and transactional calls contain almost static content, Dial AI calls are dynamic calls whose results depend on the campaign script writer. You can read our guide for crafting the perfect Callchimp campaign.

Step 5: Creating your first script

Scripts dictate what AI agent follows in a campaign. A script is used for Dial AI and transactional-type campaigns. A script is as good as how you write it. You can either write one from scratch or choose a template to get started.

Head over to callchimp.ai/scripts/new to create a new script.

Once you've created your first script, it will be available in your campaign to select

Once you visit the scripts tab in your campaign, you'll find the script ready for use.

Once you've written your script or used a template, it'll be time to move on to the next step towards placing your AI calls.

Step 6: Creating your first list

Lists provide you the benefit of categorizing your customers under different groups. Let's take an example of an insurance agency using Callchimp. An insurance agent might want to create different groups based on the insurance policy amount. Another example is an institution with list names as cohort or id.

Either use the "Add lists" button on the campaigns page or head over to callchimp.ai/lists to create a new list.

Step 7: Placing your first call

Head over to the list details to which you want to add numbers to. Head over to the "import" tab and upload a csv file with the details.

Ensure you upload a correct format csv to place a call. Any wrong entry can be seen in the import history section. Here's what a correct csv format looks like:

first_namelast_namephone_codephone_number
JohnDoe918777****23
JaneDoe919472****23

And all set!
