We’ve had an exciting couple of weeks at Spur—so much so that we couldn’t even update you last week! But now, we’ve found some time to share all the amazing features and changes we’ve been working on over the past fortnight.

As soon as Meta rolled out the ability to send messages to new WhatsApp users without them sending a message first, we enabled it for our brands to get upto 2x more leads!

We’ve added this default welcome message, which you can of course customize.

Our default welcome message

Bring order to your Instagram live sessions by automating responses to comments. Configure keywords to include and exclude, ensuring relevant and timely engagement during your live events.

The Database section now shows all your active contacts within a certain date range, helping you keep your billing in check.

New messages in a conversation are now clearly indicated, ensuring you never miss an important update.

You can now mark conversations in your Shared Inbox as unread when using Spur on mobile, helping you manage your chats more efficiently.

Pausing automations whenever you send a message manually was the default behaviour. However, template messages have been excluded from this behaviour, since they can trigger automations of their own.

I’m sure you know by now that Spur is a powerful tool to automate your engagement on both WhatsApp and Instagram. But you know what can make Spur even more powerful? Integrations with other tools.

That’s exactly what our partner brand Lagorii did. With the power of Spur and ReturnPrime, they were able to automate 50% of all of their return queries!

We also have one new Shopify review from our friends at RITE.® from the UAE. They’re as passionate about accessible health and beauty supplements as we are passionate about a great user experience! Go check them out here:
