What is Tour My App?
Tour My App is a revolutionary new product that allows web developers to integrate in-application tours into their web applications. Apart from adding a few lines of script to their pages, there is no coding involved.
What is an In-Application Tour?
In-application tours are a series of message boxes that appear within your application to guide the user. These messages boxes can be informative, or interactive. Informative message boxes highlight particular elements on the page and explain what they do. Interactive message boxes tell the user to perform some action, and will progress to the next step after the user completes the action.
What can you use in-application tours for?
Simple: Improve user engagement with your web application. How? Here are some ways:
- New User Orientation: When users sign up for your app, they spend only a few minutes looking through your app. If they cannot understand it within those few minutes, they leave forever. Show an in-application tour to the new user when they first log in, so that they can get productive quickly. In turn, engagement with your app increases.
- Walk them through a particular task: Does your “Help” link go to some documentation and videos? Well, here is some news: Users rarely read pages of documentation or watch long videos. What if you could trigger an in-application tour that will take them through the steps required to accomplish the task? All this, right from within your web app.
- Introduce a new feature: When you add a new feature to your app, how do you tell your existing users about it? Send an email? Well, most users will read your email and then forget about it. What if you can create an pop up a tour box highlighting the feature as the users are using your app. Then walk the users through the new feature right from within your app. (Google and Facebook do this for all their new features — With Tour My App, you can do this too!
- Explain a demo for potential customers: A lot of companies allow potential customers to log into a demo site and take a look around a real, live app. Problem is, the customer usually gets confused will all the panels, screens and buttons and is unable to understand the full value of what they are seeing. An in-application tour can guide potential users through the demo site and explain what is going on. It’s almost as if you were sitting by their side.
