This is not the first time you’ll hear this, and it’s certainly not the last: engagement. The key to a successful online store is to keep your online shoppers engaged. 

A smart Chat Marketing strategy keeps people interested, brings them back to your store, and boosts sales because you’re talking to your customers on the right channel at the right time.  

To achieve a winning Chat strategy, you need a subscriber list. ManyChat is one of the top go-to list building tools for small business owners on GoDaddy.
