LONDON — In an ongoing search to find new ways to engage today's digitally savvy consumer, brands and retailers are starting to use WhatsApp to get up close and personal with customers — and generate sales.
So far, the use of WhatsApp has been limited to personal shopping departments as part of a wider strategy for retailers to be present in the lives of their top-tier customers through any channel that suits them. But now retailers have spotted a bigger opportunity to take the platform beyond personal shopping.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
