Reason 1: 98% of Hong Kong people are WhatsApp users = Potential customers

Traditional e-commerce platforms require customers to search online or visit physical stores, making it difficult for merchants to reach a large number of customers and have lower brand exposure. However, VIMOS’s WhatsApp online shop solves this problem! Through the WhatsApp platform, merchants can easily reach about 2 billion potential customers and use WhatsApp’s chat function and 24-hour automatic reply feature to establish more personalized and instant communication.

Reason 2: WhatsApp Efficiently Improves Customer Interaction and Loyalty

Compared to traditional e-commerce platforms, WhatsApp’s chat function and 24/7 auto-reply feature enable merchants to establish instant interaction and communication with customers, rather than just sending information one-way without customer feedback or questions on traditional platforms. Customers don’t need to install any app or register; they can simply click into WhatsApp. Moreover, through the customer service CRM system in VIMOS WhatsApp online, merchants can provide targeted product recommendations based on customer data analysis, further strengthening connections with customers, and increasing loyalty and repurchase rates.

Reason 3: WhatsApp Reduces 50% Promotional and Administrative Costs

On traditional e-commerce platforms, merchants need to invest a lot of time and resources to build and maintain their online stores, such as designing the appearance, functionality, content of websites or applications, and even paying various fees. However, on VIMOS WhatsApp online shop, merchants only need to set up their product catalog on WhatsApp, significantly reducing operational costs and complexity, and increasing efficiency and flexibility.
