Why Viber Business Messages
With 60% of the world’s population currently owning a smartphone – a number expected to rise to 79% in 2025, it’s no wonder over-the-top (OTT) messengers like Viber are becoming more popular amongst enterprises and mobile advertisers
Viber Business Messages offer great responsiveness and engagement value, offering brands a range of advantages. With over 1 billion unique users worldwide, 70% of whom are between 18 and 35, the Viber app has great reach with a young audience. 22 million of those are in Ukraine, translating to 97% market penetration, making Viber a great way to reach your customers.
Viber Business Messages have several advantages over SMS. They can incorporate links and images to make messages more engaging, and each message can contain up to 1,000 characters (compared to SMS’ 160 per message). This makes them ideal for communicating important information to your customers in interactive and engaging ways.
GMS has worked with Rakuten Viber since 2015, combining our experience to deliver truly effective campaigns. Using our secure Hyber platform allows enterprises to combine Viber Business Messages with other channels, customize delivery settings and preferences, and generate statistics-rich reports to measure results.
Viber Business Messages are great for
- Two-way communication including notifications and alerts
- Eye-catching special offers, loyalty programs, and promotions
- Transactional messages: user authentications, delivering account information and reports
You can improve your communications with an official Viber business account. With clear branding, a dedicated “about” section, and links to drive people to your website, these accounts aren’t just about appearance – they also improve trust and transparency, providing an easy way for users to subscribe to or unsubscribe from receiving messages.
Your communication doesn’t have to be one-sided: You can receive responses from your customers and start off a dialogue, or make it straightforward and send one-way, “event-based” messages.
