Trends in WhatsApp Businesses & Live Chats
According to a report, there are more than 2 billion global users on WhatsApp, making it one of the most used internet messaging apps today. In 2018 Meta launched WhatsApp Business to help businesses communicate more effectively with their customers. One industry in particular that has embraced WhatsApp Business is the sports sector. Many soccer teams across Europe and Latin America use WhatsApp as an integral part of their marketing, messaging, and consumer engagement strategy. Sports teams that utilize WhatsApp reap the benefits of direct communication with their fanbase. WhatsApp is a supremely effective customer service tool because it allows sports fans to communicate with their most frequently used mode of communication: text messaging.
And according to Forrester, 41% of customers expect live chat on a company’s website. For customers that visit a company website on a mobile device, that number is as high as 50%. Another report from J.D. Power found that live chat has become the leading digital contact method for online customers. A staggering 42% of customers prefer live chat compared to just 23% for email and 16% for social media or forums.
