What is Conversational Commerce?

Conversational Commerce is the combination of communication between companies and brands with their customers and online payments. Customer communication is increasingly taking place on mobile channels such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Apple Messages for Business. With potential customers when it comes to sales and marketing, or existing customers when it comes to customer service. This way, companies and brands directly engage with customers via their favourite mobile channel where they can best be reached. Adding online payments within a mobile channel ensures a seamless customer experience from contact to purchase. Each customer contact provides new information that's stored in the central customer profile. This customer profile offers the opportunity to further personalise each new contact moment.

CM.com provides companies and brands with the necessary platforms, solutions and products to create unique customer experiences for their customers. By engaging 'the conversation' through mobile channels such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Apple Messages for Business, former anonymous customers get names and corresponding profiles in order to serve them best.

1. Customer Experience

When a consumer is in the process of purchasing a product or service, contact with the company or brand is very intense.

The way in which this contact takes place is of great importance when it comes to the customer experience. If the contact goes smoothly and quickly, this leads to a positive experience.

Research shows that a positive experience contributes to building a brand preference. Communicating with consumers via their favourite mobile channel plays a major role in this.

After all, the lives of many consumers increasingly take place on their mobile phone.

Improve the Customer Experience

When a purchase can be handled directly during the contact, this has a positive influence on the customer experience. This involves completing a purchase within the consumer's favourite mobile channel without having to switch to other apps.

After the purchase of a product or service, such as clothing or tickets for an event, contact with customer service is essential when questions arise or help is needed. Again, when this is done via the consumer's favourite mobile channel, it has a positive impact on the overall customer experience for that specific brand. In addition, in this phase the direct handling of payments within the mobile channel leads to a positive experience.

The smart integration and automation of mobile communication and payments provides consumers with a unique premium customer experience. For companies and brands this leads to better sales, more customers and increased customer satisfaction.

Increase Your Conversions Rate With WhatsApp Business Assisted Sales

You don't need a degree in psychology to know that some customers are more risk-averse than others when it comes to making a purchase. When shopping online everyone has, at some point, been in the position of hovering over the 'confirm payment' button with that little voice at the back of their minds telling them they're about to make a mistake. Sometimes we throw caution to the wind regardless of any doubts we may have and buy the product anyway; in many cases, we abandon our carts and go elsewhere to find what we're looking for.
