You would agree with me that in a world where many businesses are competing for the same customers, businesses have to innovate and find something that stands them out from competitors.

It’s in this light and with our dedication to making business easier for you; that we unveil yet another awesome Bumpa feature: Messaging!

What Can You Do with Messaging?

·        You can now send emails and bulk SMS to your customers from the app!

This means that you can write a broadcast message on the app, choose the customer(s) you want to send it to, and choose to either send it as an SMS or email.

The coolest thing about this feature is that you can add pictures to your message

What Does This Mean for Your Business?

i. Easy Communication.

You can easily send campaigns, birthday wishes, weekend &public holiday greetings to your customers. You can also send them notice of flash sales or basically just engage them personally. 

Remember it is the business that stays in touch that will make the most money.

ii. Target Customer Groups

The messaging feature allows you to choose from pre-existing customer groups or create customer groups and send them messages. Think of it as a special WhatsApp bc group.

Bumpa automatically creates 6 customer groups you can choose from:

·       All customers

·      Top 10% of customers by amount spent

·       Customers with O orders

·       Customers with 1 order

·       Customers with no purchase in the last 30 days

But this is not where it ends. You can take total control of your messaging by creating unique customer groups by yourself.

You can create groups for debtors, best customers, customers in Lagos, female customers, etc. so that you can send them messages that actually concern them and can make them buy from you.

Remember that it is the business that communicates that the customer remembers.

We need to add that you can however not enjoy this feature to the maximum if you don’t record your customers on the app. You can upload customers that patronize you online and offline so that you can send messages to all your customers.
