5 ways ‘Messenger Marketing’ personalises your relationship with customers
When executed the right way, social media platform such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are great ways to stay connected with your customers. But with so many businesses on these platforms, and the constant changing of their sharing infrastructure, your connection can sometimes get lost… or just not reach the number of people you had hoped. For instance, what happens when you post on your brand’s Facebook page? Not quite enough the traffic you anticipated, right? The update is viewed by a small portion of your followers. To remedy the status quo technology has paved a way to effectively engage and reach out to the customers. The new digital marketing paradigm is called ‘Messenger Marketing’.
So, what is Messenger Marketing?
It’s an easy way for you to reach your customers using Facebook Messenger that automates communication and engagement. For instance, automating a message when customers comment on a Facebook post aimed at promoting a product or running a contest. This lets you send a variety of messages (such as a custom greeting) directly to your customer’s smartphone as they walk through your door. Imagine being able to inform customers about a new service or an upcoming event or a new product, with the assurance that the message has been received. Messenger Marketing is incredible at connecting directly with your customers and deepening the engagement.
We have handpicked five ways to help you leverage the new tool:
1. Welcome New Users
Will Rogers once said “You never get a second chance to make a first impression”. Luckily, now there’s a way around that. HeyMojo’s marketing automation tools can ensure that your first interaction with new a subscriber sets you up for future success.
Next time on when a customer signs-up or interacts on Facebook, or checks-out from your store, send a message — or a time punctuated series of relevant messages — to welcome them, introduce them to your products and services, or show them your appreciation for their interest or purchase. Use it as an opportunity to showcase your newest or best-selling items, or even provide promo codes to incentivise decision making.
Not only it is a great way to show new customers what you’re all about, it can improve the bottom line too. Research shows that welcome automations on Messenger earn 5 times more orders than the run-of-the-mill bulk SMS.

A friendly welcome when someone clicks on an ad, a personalised message that makes them smile — whatever it is, if you can succeed in improving the quality of your customer’s day, you are en route to building customer loyalty. And that’s what Messenger Marketing begets you. Not only it sends out a custom greeting, it also automatically checks customers preferences and respond accordingly.
