Viber, one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, is only getting bigger. In 2021, it has even strengthened its presence in the country with a 33% rise in monthly active users last year. Viber group chats also remain popular with a whopping 110% increase. If you thought Viber was just for titas, you would be mistaken. Reports show that over half of Viber’s users consist of the younger demographic (from ages 25 to 34) at 40%. Social media has been consistently evolving, becoming powerhouse apps you can do nearly everything on! Viber is no different.
Another major messaging milestone popular on the app? Business messaging. If you haven’t already noticed, Viber has been partnering with the biggest brands in the country, giving companies access to their millions of users worldwide. With a 54% increase in business messages alone, you could say this is not just a passing fad. Now, how does that apply to you and your business? After all, not everyone has the access to the same resources. It’s simple. Even YOU can start automating the entire ordering process on the messaging Super App without breaking the bank. All you need to do is set up your own Viber online store. Let customers browse, add to cart, and checkout all without having to leave their message thread.
Don’t worry, we’ll tell you exactly how to do it. Find out everything you need to know about launching your Viber Mini App online store here:
