What you'll learn in this playbook


Messaging solves the major challenges fashion brands face with customer acquisition and making shopping experiences feel personal online.

It’s not easy to improve CAC and conversion rates when customers expect an effortless way to find products online that fit their needs and preferences. 

Especially younger generations, who want to be engaged and activated on their preferred social channels. 

Fashion shoppers also find it overwhelming to go through huge product catalogs. That’s why reducing inventory with personal offers is key for fashion brands. 

Customer acquisition cost

Improve CAC and conversion rates by guiding shoppers and recommending products dynamically in chat in real-time.

Customer signals

Audience growth
