Benefits of using Facebook Messenger CRM for businesses in Malaysia
Why should businesses in Malaysia consider Facebook Messenger to help with CRM? The answer is two-fold.
Firstly, Malaysia is currently the largest e-commerce market in Southeast Asia, a region that has the fastest digital sales growth in the world. E-commerce sales in SEA is estimated to total over $90 billion dollars in 2022 and surpass $100 billion by next year.

The second reason is that Facebook Messenger is one of the world’s most widely used messaging apps with 1.3B monthly active users.
What better way to engage customers - who highly value a convenient and seamless shopping experience - than their favourite social messaging app?
Compounded by the fact that social commerce is becoming the norm for retailers and consumers, businesses can reach billions of Facebook users, generate sales, and grow their business in Malaysia, Southeast Asia and beyond.

Say goodbye to the days of manually downloading Facebook leads and uploading the spreadsheet separately to your CRM.
When your CRM can access Facebook, your leads will automatically be managed through your CRM in real-time. You will have increased visibility of your contacts and customer preferences on SleekFlow’s platform, so that you can create more personalised campaigns that appeal to your target customers.
Within a short period of time, you are able to create a strong connection with your customer than manifests into brand loyalty, driving repeated purchases and engagement in the future.
Enhance customer experience by providing instant support on Facebook Messenger
When customers reach out to your Facebook Business Page, they are expecting a quick response.
And by quick, I mean within 10 minutes.
Seriously, HubSpot Research shows that 90% of customers rate an “immediate” response as important or very important when they have a customer service question. 60% of customers define “immediate” as 10 minutes or less.

Facebook Messenger allows your business to directly respond to your customer, provide updates, and follow up actions within one chat platform. SleekFlow’s Automation tools guarantee a highly personalised response, can send abandoned cart reminders, and broadcast seasonal promotions.
From product discovery to purchase, the entire customer journey happens within Facebook’s app, offering your customers the smooth commerce journey that they expected - the kind that keeps them returning for more purchases in the future.

The data gathered from your interaction with customers on Facebook can help you understand your target audience’s demographics and customer behaviour.
On average, Messenger reports an 88% open rate and 56% click-through rate. This means that the chances of you finding out what your customer is looking for is very high.
Without having to spend too much effort or money, you can easily identify prospects, guide them through the sales funnel and complete the sale within Messenger, and send supplementary product catalogues and information via Messenger to build brand loyalty.
