Being a top Lazada seller gives you many advantages, not just in terms of sales but also in becoming eligible for tools that can further improve your seller rating. Lazada’s Customer Engagement (CEM) tool is one such conversion-boosting tool that allow sellers to proactively engage with a group of customers. Sellers can use CEM to send messages directly to customers who have interactions with their store, whether they are followers, have purchased before or have only added items to their cart.

When you can’t meet your customers face to face, tools like CEM are incredibly beneficial to an online store. Some of the benefits of using CEM include having direct communication with your customers, increased exposure and visibility of your products to potential customer groups, as well as the ability to quickly gain the attention of new and potential customers with promotional items, mechanics and new arrivals!

With CEM, sellers can interact with each customer using different scenarios, for example by providing product recommendations, vouchers, as well as request for ratings and reviews from recent sales. It helps you to give your customer that one last push to make a purchase.

However, there are a few guidelines for CEM to be effective for your store. These include:

Having a sizable customer base – Like all engagement and marketing channels, in order for CEM to effective (in driving traffic to store or to convert an order), the customer group size needs to be large enough.

Engaging content – This ensures that your shoppers are motivated/ driven to take action after reading the CEM message. One way to do so is by including attractive offers, using high-quality images or vouchers! You can also capture the attention of your customers by adding keywords like ‘Flash sale’, ‘free gift’, or ‘extended warranty’ at the beginning of the message to keep them interested.

Sending CEM messages at the right time – Be sure to check when you are sending the CEM message! Try to send it at times when most users would be on their phone.
