Meet Chatkit.

We are a group of marketing technologists who came together with a simple goal: to make it easier for brands to form deeper, more significant connections with their customers.

We watched the world shift to mobile while marketers struggled to catch up. Traditional marketing—like display advertising and email—was not designed for a mobile-first, two-way consumer experience, leading to the rise of invasive ads and irritating inbox spam. Consumers were more frustrated and alienated than ever. We knew there had to be a better way for marketers to speak with their customers.

We founded Chatkit because we believe mobile messaging has the power to transform marketing and e-commerce. Instead of alienating people, we help brands engage customers in real conversations that make them feel valued and heard.

Our Mission.

In an age where consumers are deluged with endless choices, one-to-one conversation is the only way brands can build real emotional connections with customers. That’s the core belief that drives everything we do, from the exceptional standard of our platform, to our laser focus on customer success.

We believe in a world where digital marketing is truly personalized, where brands can deploy the power of their data, in an open and integrated ecosystem, to better understand and serve their customers. That’s why we’re so fanatical about mobile messaging.
