As a small business owner, you are surely already aware of the many ways in which recent technological advances have influenced the way you do business. In order to ensure your small business doesn't get left behind amidst a rapidly changing marketplace, it's vital that you incorporate the kinds of new technologies that will help your business thrive for many years to come.

DULUTH, Ga. - Californer -- Ismail Sirdah, outlined several ways his own small business has benefited from incorporating Facebook Messenger. In detailing how the platform has helped his photography business excel, Ismail Sirdah also highlighted some of the universal benefits available to small business owners who utilize Facebook Messenger to connect with their customers.

Reach Customers Where They Already Are

Perhaps the most compelling and salient rationale for incorporating Messenger into your small business is illustrated with a single statistic offered by Flurry Analytics: Over the last year, the amount of time spent on messaging platforms and social media increased by nearly 400 percent.

Reduced Friction for Users

Even if the preceding steps were easy to carry out — and, just to be clear, they are not — getting your customers to use the app is still the most difficult obstacle to overcome: Even though apps account for 85 percent of the time users spend on smartphones, that time is dominated by an average of just five apps. This is why Facebook is touting Messenger as a "frictionless" platform, as it eliminates all the hurdles most likely to deter customers from using an app that fosters communication with your small business.

Compelling and Essential Interactions

When Messenger was first introduced, the automated chat agents were not nearly as sophisticated as they are today. The experiences your customers are exposed to through Facebook Messenger are far more robust than ever before, as they now feature location sharing, native payments, and complex interfaces, along with a number of other features that make the platform both compelling and essential for small business owners as well as their customers.
