Aveda’s online booking system through their website was under-promoted and lacked automation. They wanted to create a more engaging experience rather than the tedious task of inputting information through several rows of form fields. Furthermore, Aveda wanted to find a way to promote their complimentary services and bring more foot traffic to their stores.

What We Created
Master of Code created the appointment booking Aveda Chatbot, with an additional feature set to connect users to their customer service team.
The Master of Code Team created a rich, engaging, guided conversational experience that allowed users to seamlessly select an Aveda store nearest them, using Google’s API, book a complimentary beauty service, choose their preferred date and time, and confirm their appointment all within the bot experience.
Once the booking chatbot was launched, the Master of Code Team worked with Aveda to create a paid social campaign across Facebook and Instagram to promote Aveda’s featured service, a 20 minutes Custom Mini Facial, with an additional gift with purchase offer.
