Companies using Viber messaging
Broad coverage of Viber allows you to use it for sales promotions and customers notifications. The service is popular among:
Commercial enterprises. Retail chains, shops, restaurants and cafes use Viber in marketing campaigns. The ability to attach a picture makes the message colorful. The call/go to the site button instantly turns recipients into customers. The message remains with the client and he can return to it later: it creates delayed conversion.
Financial institutions, delivery services, taxis. Viber is an effective alternative to transactional SMS. It costs less but also connects to the API and helps to instantly inform customers about the order status, the taxi arrival or the movement of funds on the account.
IT-companies. Mailing via Viber is an alternative to SMS authentication when registering on sites or in services. With the same efficiency Viber messages contain more information, but are cheaper.
Comparing Viber messaging with other types of advertising
Outdoor advertising is image advertising. Wide coverage if installed in a right place where many people can see it. Bright and memorable.
It has more disadvantages than advantages. There are only 2-3 seconds to inform the client about a brand, unique offer and advantages. It is very unlikely that the clients will return and look at the post again. The price is high. It includes designer's work, printing, and rent for billboards (other places). Outdoor advertising is expensive and ineffective.
Contextual advertising is an effective tool for business promoting. But it works only in the hands of professionals. If you are not ready to study for a long time than you will have to pay a fee to an Internet marketing specialist or agency. The cost of a contact with the customer reaches 100 rubles.
Mailing via Viber through the official channel doesn't have any of these shortcomings. The message comes directly to the client and he can return to it at a convenient time to get the details. Embedded pictures make the message vivid and memorable. Avatar with logo and the company's name in the Sender line clearly identify the company sending out the messages. A button calling to action implies instant interaction. The price for mailing is fixed. The average cost of a message is 62 kopecks, which is a hundred times cheaper than contextual advertising.
