Conversational Marketing: Is This the End of Mobile Apps?
Interaction between brands and their customers is shifting from company-centric tools like websites and applications to customer-centric channels like SMS, WhatsApp, and Messenger. More and more companies are shifting use cases to the channels their customers use, not where it makes sense for them. We saw brands like Bolt switching their customer communication to WhatsApp, resulting in 40% higher conversion rates. Similarly, luxury retail brands including Dior have started using the channel to send Influencer content to customers that could increase sales - Is this the start of an end of apps?
