10. Social Messaging Apps
Lemme guess which app you use most often to send messages WhatsApp? Facebook Messenger? or WeChat? I’m sure you definitely using any one out of these three. I’m not guessing this is the fact as per the statistics.
- 3 billion monthly users are active on Facebook Messenger
- 10 billion messages are sent between people and businesses on Facebook Messenger every month
- WhatsApp has 6 billion active users and 55 billion messages are sent via every day
These statistics show the popularity of social messaging apps. So apps like these aren’t just for messaging friends anymore. Since people are spending more time messaging with each other, it makes sense to market your company’s products and services where your potential customers are hanging out. These Personalized apps are very useful in sending messages to customers directly instead of mails, as they allow personalization and add value to users’ experience. Some applications like WeChat Pay and WhatsApp have already made significant progress in making it easier to pay online.
Few ways businesses are using messaging apps:
- Establishing contact and building relationships with targeted customers
- Educating customers about their business/products/services
- Boosting sales by Inviting people to events
