Five ways RCS Business Messaging is improving retail & eCommerce experience

  1. Personalized product recommendations: RCS Business Messaging allows visually rich product carousels and suggested replies. Businesses can tailor offers based on browsing history or previous purchases, increasing the likelihood of a sale.
  2. Seamless order support: Customers can receive real-time order updates with images, track shipments, and even manage returns or exchanges directly within RCS Business Messaging conversations. Convenient and efficient!
  3. Interactive promotions: Send eye-catching coupons, flash sale announcements, and loyalty program updates with high-quality images and GIFs.
  4. Conversational customer service: Answer product questions, provide styling advice, or help find the right item through RBM’s conversational interface. It’s like having a personal shopper in your messaging inbox.
  5. Post-purchase engagement: RCS Business Messaging enables proactive order follow-ups, requests for product reviews (with image/video capability), and even offers for complementary products. This helps build long-term customer relationships.
