Chat Bots: Recover Abandoned Carts with Facebook Messenger
4 days ago
In 2016, chatbots were said to be the next big thing in ecommerce. Now it’s nearly 2018, and we’re starting to see real results from chat bots, specifically remarketing via Facebook Messenger.
In one client’s stores, we saw this approach recover 1 out of 3 abandoned sessions.
This gets us excited. On today’s episode, we’re joined but a Shopify merchant turned service provider who knows the space better than most.
Arjun Ohri is the CEO of ShopMessage, the first e-commerce marketing automation platform for Facebook Messenger.
Previously, Arjun built and scaled multiple businesses on the Facebook platform, including social games at Zynga, and a Shopify store with over 1M customers.

I'm a huge podcast listener and Shopify store owner so I was happy when this podcast came along. Lots of interesting stories and love to hear the answer to the question posed every episode about the guests favorite app to use for their business. I do wish there were more interviews with newer shopify store owners so see how they are reaching their success. And it could just be me that's noticed this, but the host tends to interrupt the guest to tell his own opinion or story without letting the guest finish their thought - which I find annoying and amusing at same time. :)

Probably my favorite podcast right now
Very informative. If you have or want a Shopify shop, this is a must-listen.
I believe that the people behind this are going to become a pretty big deal (they already are) as Shopify expands, so get in on the ground level and listen.
I listen to a few different podcasts around entrepreneurship and ecommerce, but I'm most excited when there's a new episode of this one.
