Viber, the Hidden Goldmine
At Fibotalk we focus on giving the most value to businesses in managing communication with their customers. We ensure this by providing a great chat platform for websites and integrate with the best and biggest chat messengers in the world.
This is a story of how much we underestimated Viber as a lot of pundits have written its epithet a long time ago.
Messengers are the final frontier of customer engagement
In the past 6-7 years, customers across the world are spoiled by the convenience of free messengers.
They just love it, no need to worry about backing up data, no cost wherever you go across the globe and great for sharing any content.
These messengers have now opened up for businesses as a new avenue of communication, making it the most impactful channel of today.
The messenger pages are going to be the new websites in the future, where customers would love to get all the information as well as cut the deal live.
I feel businesses should take messenger presence as seriously as they think about the website, emails and social media presence.
Viber as a channel should not be ignored in your business communication strategy.
