How it works

The training helps offline retailers establish their business pages and accounts on Facebook and Instagram. What it means is that retailers can target local consumers through these social media channels. Not just that they can engage with potential consumers through WhatsApp. Connecting with local retailers online eliminates the need for consumers to visit the physical store.

What Samsung notes that the retailers can then engage with potential consumers to share information such as e-detailers and e-catalogues. They can order their favourite Samsung smartphone via WhatsApp by contacting the local retailers on retailer’s WhatsApp Business app, and it’ll be delivered to their home.
