Create & Share Posts about your Business

The ICTLife Merchant Account provides your business with the ability to create beautiful posts and then share the posts through social media such as Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter as well as generates a unique web link which you can email or SMS to your customers. The posts that you create are saved in your business profile and do not expire. This allows you to create a comprehensive business profile over time as your customers can view all the posts that you’ve made over time.

Connect and Interact with your Customers

When you create posts and share them with your customers, they are able to interact with you by commenting on your posts as well as by liking or sharing your post with their friends. This gives your business the ability to connect with customers while making it easier for your customers to refer your business to their friends. For example, a hairdresser posting their latest hairstyle will have the ability to reply to any comments that come in after putting in their post. The customers that the post is shared with can also share the post with their friends increasing the reach of the hairdresser’s post. Finally, all interactions with customers are organized on a per customer basis, enabling you to create a profile of your customers over time.
