Why messaging apps are important for your business
For consumers, messaging apps have some specific advantages : they are private communication channels, real-time and asynchronous. Messaging quickly became the preferred way of communication among consumers. Over the last years messaging apps have outgrown social media. Today more monthly active users are active on the top 4 messaging apps compared to the top 4 social media.
Unfortunately it remains difficult to contact businesses as simple as contacting friends or family. Businesses still need to be contacted through phone numbers, contact forms, IVR’s and e-mails. Long waiting times, non-consistent experiences and slow resolution times are only a few of the symptoms in the current state of business-consumer interactions.
Messaging is a powerful way to cut through this complexity of business-consumer interaction. Messaging apps are growing into a platform for commerce and customer service. This “conversational commerce” creates new opportunities for brands to deliver convenience and decision support on-the-go. Read more on Conversational commerce on our Letsclap blog.
