What is Conversational Marketing?
Conversational Marketing, also known as chat commerce or conversational commerce, is a method for online merchants to sell their products and services by utilising the power of conversation. Whether a potential customer receives the everyday experience through a chat app, a chatbot, a voice assistant, or a messaging platform makes no difference. Customer communication serves the purpose as long as it is personalised and helpful, and takes the consumer further down the sales funnel.

These WhatsApp chatbots ensure you never miss out on any customer by immediately replying to their queries through automated templates of specific cohorts. Bikayi WhatsApp is beneficial for its chatbot and filters, where you can save more time and gain even more customers through the automated window.
