Businesses are able to connect with customers on Whatsapp, Messenger and Instagram. As a shopper or customer you would be able to shop, get support and track deliveries through the feature.
Chatbots are AI (artificial intelligence) that are used on websites that have real time customer services to help all users. The chatbot interacts with humans in a really normal and natural way, users might not even know the difference. Customers would rather chat to a catbot than emailing or phoning the business.
Snatchbot is one of the forerunners of the development of chatbots and AI. Snatchbot has given their customers the option to build their own chatbots. Creating and developing a chatbot marketplace has changed the very complicated to easily accessible and obtainable. They also provide a bot store at which a business can choose a template chatbot for their industry. These features make it even easier for businesses to afford and obtain chatbots. Snatchbot has recently released that their chatbots can be set up on their very popular chat app, changing and revolutionising the way businesses chat and interact with their customers. Another positive of a chatbot is it is available 24/7 to the customers. Chatbots are busy dominating customer services, and how does the saying go? If businesses do not adapt they will fall behind.
Ultimately all digital marketing leads to one place, websites. All websites are hosted by companies as currently it is quite complicated to host one’s own website. Comparing web hosting solutions before making a decision is vital. Luckily for us there are great companies that provide website hosting services. Most businesses have websites, but it is not enough to only have a website. User Experience has been dominating the website industry. The faster more user friendly a website is the better the conversion rate of the clients are.

For e-commerce companies this loading speed and ease of use is really important. The faster, easier your site is the more frequently users would visit and buy from your page.
