WhatsApp have opened the doors for businesses to officially use their channel, but you can only do so via an approved partner. Lucky for you, dotdigital have been working with WhatsApp and owners Facebook for years, to not only bring you WhatsApp’s business messaging APIs, but also the knowledge base we’ve accumulated from this relationship. Leverage the fastest-growing communication app on the planet to reach and engage a huge proportion of you consumer base in seconds.
Bringing social back
Make sure your customers can reach you on the channels they’re already on, or risk losing them to the competitor. Offer superior customer service with Facebook Messenger and Twitter DM and send triggered messages about existing orders that keep customers informed and engaged. Allowing replies opens more opportunities for repeat or add-on sales and asking for reviews, referrals or recommendations widens your brand to larger audiences.
Send important updates
Don’t forget, customers still love email, especially to receive important files or information about their order or account. Send at scale and leverage our deliverability experts to ensure your message is getting through. Email is also a great option to set as your backstop channel for customers who are yet to adopt an omnichannel approach.
Consumers love to gain resolution inside the app or channel they are using. You might already have made sure chat is available to them if they are on your site or app, but have you also thought about using these channels to send triggered messages about order updates? Buffering the post-sale journey with helpful information about an order can make all the difference to a customer experience.
