In the current business landscape, customers and store clerks have disappeared from storefronts. Do you have a virtual store clerk ready to help your potential client? To bring your brand, product, and service to customers, you must now go to them with conversational commerce.

With more individuals using online communication, conversational commerce has become the best way for businesses to interact with potential customers. Simply put, conversational commerce is eCommerce performed through conversation. This process occurs through various means (voice, chat, messaging) on various networks (Whatapps, Facebook Messenger, Instagram). Whether through a chatbot or a customer support representative on Facebook, conversational commerce puts the customer at your fingertips.

Why is conversational commerce important?

In David Cancel’s book on Conversational Marketing, he describes why conversational commerce became an essential part of the contemporary business world.

Product Information Became Free

In other words, social proof became the mainstay of many product pages. A notorious example is the customer review on Amazon, which often makes or breaks a business's chance to sell their products. Customers can access this information anywhere, and if you don't have it readily available, you risk falling behind.

Real-Time Information Became Expected

We carry the world in our pocket. Our phone holds endless pathways to numerous outlets: Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram, or traditional methods (email and telephone). The customer expects that your business can answer their questions whenever they arise by any means necessary.

Supply Became Infinite

Everyone wants to live by Peter Thiel's maxim, "Competition is for losers." However, most businesses are in a continuous struggle against the same bitter rivals. High-quality eCommerce sites have recently become the key to oust the competition by getting customers information when they need it through an omnichannel user experience. At Vaimo, we've helped firms like Jaguar, Champion, Helly Hansen, and Heineken achieve a competitive advantage by efficiently connecting their brand to their customers and with an artist's touch.

To satisfy your clients before and after the sale, you need the right eCommerce platform and solution partners. We have teamed up with Gorgias to provide our expertise to you at this crucial moment.

  • 35% of shoppers have stated that they would be fine with never making an in-store purchase again. Is this the end of the physical storefront?
  • How do you visualize your brand online?
  • How can you reevaluate your channels, and do you have the capacity to do these things?
  • How do you use chat, text messaging, and social media comments to convert consumers?
  • How can you create high-converting chat campaigns?
