LINE Official Account

On LINE, businesses can have an account where they can engage with LINE users just like with their friends and family. Brands can share offers with their audience and even provide customer service. LINE Official Accounts are used by businesses to connect with their customers.

With an Official Account, you can send general information, sales and marketing activities, and special promotions to your users who are friends with your channel. Your LINE friends will get notified just like when they get a message from their social network.

Businesses who open LINE Official Account are then able to run digital marketing campaigns on LINE Ads platform.
