Facebook Messenger – Indispensable Selling Tool
With current 1.5 billion active users on Facebook Messenger and 60 million messages sent every single day, Facebook Messenger has become a very potential sales channel for social commerce businesses.
More and more social commerce businesses are leveraging Facebook Messenger to communicate with their customers, and now Facebook Messenger even allows users to place orders and check-out right on spot.
Obviously, Facebook has been constantly developing their family of apps to buy merchants all the advantages and tools to sell online. Typically, Facebook has partnered with Socialhead to launch the Facebook Business Extension which allows you to set up a Facebook Shop simply within clicks.
Despite all the advantages Facebook Messenger offers, there are still obstacles. For instance, managing messaging for multiple Facebook accounts or pages at the same time is not easy at all. Not to mention that you may run into trouble when there are too many messages to reply to.
If you want to sell on Facebook Messenger and leverage it to the fullest, then you should use Shopify apps to support your businesses.
