QUESTIONS?
ANSWERS.

We've gained deep knowledge from working with leading consumer brands and are always happy to share our expertise.

Is charles GDPR compliant?

Yes, charles and WhatsApp are GDPR compliant if you approach it in the right way. We’ll help you keep the right checks in place with product features and our expert support team. For example, your customers’.

WhatsApp opt-in status will be fed back to Emarsys. And when people opt in to WhatsApp, Emarsys can trigger a GDPR-compliant double opt-in flow powered by charles.

Will WhatsApp cannibalize my other marketing channels?

No. WhatsApp complements your other channels. As we said above, this is about sending the right message to the right person at the right time in the perfect way. With integrations like charles x Emarsys, you can easily do this – improving the customer journey and satisfication while reducing duplication and irritation.  
 

For example, use WhatsApp for exclusive, pre-sale campaigns and email for the bulk announcement.  
 
In fact, brands that add WhatsApp to email see a CLV uplift of 25% vs email only.

Do people engage in WhatsApp?

Very much so. The interactive capabilities, even with automation, are second to none. You can add buttons and lists and then store customer responses and preferences as tags. You can send rich media like photos and videos. And you can trigger new flows based on a text response from customers. Add WhatsApp to your marketing stack and watch engagement soar 🚀 

 

We made a roleplaying game for WWF, entirely through WhatsApp automation in charles Journeys which kept over 20,000 people engaged for as long as 20 minutes.  

 

And of course the 85-95% open rates help. Few people can resist opening a WhatsApp message.

Can I make a profit in WhatsApp? Isn’t it expensive?

Yes, our customers make a return on campaign spend (ROCS) of around 8-10X on average. The profitability of WhatsApp marketing is unbeatable. This is largely because of the high visibility of WhatsApp notifications and the way it allows businesses to sit right beside people’s friends. Our Emarsys integration helps ensure profitability by allowing you to build targeted audiences for your WhatsApp campaigns using Emarsys' customer data. 
 
WhatsApp costs more than email initially – because Meta charges €0.07-0.10 per conversation, but the returns and engagement are far higher.

I've heard WhatsApp works well for one-off campaigns. What about ongoing CRM activities?

Yes, WhatsApp gains amazing results for events like Black Friday and Valentine’s Day. But, thanks to powerful automation capabilities, you can drive year-round revenue with always-on WhatsApp campaigns, like back in stock reminders, delivery updates and abandoned cart notifications – powered by Emarsys' powerful customer data.

Is WhatsApp ready for enterprise?

Yes. Companies like us exist since 2019. Meta is investing heavily in WhatsApp for businesses. And in India and Brazil, WhatsApp is already a way of life for all consumers.
