YouGov 2021 International FMCG/CPG report: Consumer Goods in Crisis reveals changes in FMCG/FMCG consumption in Singapore since the pandemic. Two of five (38%) of Singaporeans say they have purchased groceries or household necessities through an online supermarket, and more than two in five (46%) have done so in April 2021. Nearly two-thirds (63%) agree that they will shop more online - a sentiment particularly echoed by younger shoppers (aged 18-34) with seven in ten (69%) agreeing with this statement.

This changes shopping behavior to a more online outlet. This is a major shift but also an opportunity. As businesses try to keep up, there’s also one messenger App that facilitates these changes perfectly, WhatsApp.

WhatsApp Business

Who hasn't heard of WhatsApp messenger? Or better, who hasn't had WhatsApp messenger installed already? This app enables users to send free international messaging and free calls with their phone numbers. Do you know that WhatsApp Messenger has a small tool known as WhatsApp Business? Well, it wasn’t exactly a new feature, but for those of you who are not used to hearing it, it probably sounds alien to you. 

WhatsApp Business is basically what it is like - an app for small businesses to use. And guess what? It’s free! The idea behind this is to allow businesses to be able to interact with their customers easily.

It's not always ideal to mix work and personal life, so having a separate business messenger app is something kind of wonderful! Moreover, if you need to have business accounts and business profile to manage efficiently without using your personal phone numbers on the same phone.

Facebook WhatsApp Business enables small business owners to interact more efficiently with customers. Using it's own unique phone number, this app facilitates personal communication with your customers, highlighting your products and services, and answering their questions throughout their shopping experience. Create catalogs to showcase your products and services, and use specialized tools to automate, sort, and respond to messages quickly all on the same phone.
