The world around us has fundamentally changed since the start of 2020. Consumers’ habits have been influenced by the sudden social distancing situation. This has led to the increased popularity of going online - for anything and everything. In fact, 49% more consumers now shop online as compared to pre-COVID-19 times.
To reach their consumers, businesses are now trying to adapt to the new normality driven by COVID-19. This means that you need to reshape your business strategy according to e-commerce models. So, when developing a new business approach, you need to deliver resilience into operations with scalability and flexibility.
The foremost thing to consider here, therefore, is customer service. It is the most crucial aspect of any business; one in three people vote customer service as the most important aspect of any business. However, as there is no physical contact, so how can we earn the trust of new consumers, retain old buyers, and grow our business? The solution is simple: Conversational Chatbots.
Simply put, a chatbot is a virtual assistant that can engage with your customers 24/7. Thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), these bots offer the perfect human interaction experience while providing instant responses alongside.
A conversational chatbot is a great tool but when interacting with customers, we have to figure out a way of reaching them without forcing them out of their comfort zones. The best way could be to build communication via platforms that are already popular.
Now when we talk about communication, the first name that pops into mind is 'WhatsApp' and why wouldn't it? There are like 1.6 billion monthly users on WhatsApp. This means your consumer is already familiar with WhatsApp. This is good news because instead of having to establish another platform for conversation, your business can join them right on WhatsApp.
And this is exactly where Purplegrids can help. We have actually built an AI chatbot that works on WhatsApp to offer your consumers instant response with excellent communication. We will talk about our product in detail, but first, let’s understand why WhatsApp is the right platform for you.
As Jan Koum, a Ukrainian American billionaire entrepreneur and computer programmer says, “WhatsApp is like oxygen in some countries”. 12 years ago, this software was introduced as a one-to-one chat app service.
Back then, the only biggest feature was location sharing. But people loved it, and thus WhatsApp grew fast - to the point that it hit the first 1.5 billion messages in just 2 years! Today, it is the most popular chat application with several amazing features such as WhatsApp Business, Group Calling, PiP mode, etc.
The customer base for WhatsApp is huge, especially in the Asian markets. Asia alone represents over 2.5 billion WhatsApp users. People are glued to WhatsApp all day long, and with the pandemic around, they are spending 20% more time on WhatsApp! Therefore, connecting a WhatsApp-based chatbot means directly connecting to your consumers.
All these stats clearly indicate one fact: your business will thrive with a WhatsApp Chatbot.
Through WhatsApp, your business information can be made easily available for all consumers. You can work with smart replies and custom messaging to stay in touch 24/7. Not only does that make your business highly accessible but also adds transparency to the mix.
WhatsApp-based chatbots are crucial for businesses because you need to be on the most popular app. Now that this fact is established, let’s see how Purplegrids can fetch you the perfect chatbot for your business.
