In this episode, Steve explains why you should use a WhatsApp Business Account, what you need to know, and what mistakes to avoid when you get started.
Many people use personal WhatsApp accounts and miss out on the advantages of WhatsApp Business.
💡 Using your personal WhatsApp account for business can get confusing and messy and appear unprofessional.
💡 To avoid sharing your personal phone number, create a new virtual number to set up your WhatsApp Business. This virtual number will not be tied up to a specific device.
💡 WhatsApp Business can be plugged into other apps such as Facebook, LinkedIn or websites, and you can then receive messages from these platforms.
💡 Keeping a separate WhatsApp Business allows you to delegate business communications without granting access to any personal WhatsApp files or information.
07:31 – 💬 ‘Another advantage of WhatsApp Business over WhatsApp Personal is the ability to link it to multiple devices simultaneously without the need for your main account to be logged in.’
10:06 – 💬 ‘Nowadays, you can get a virtual number much cheaper than getting a SIM deal from a mobile phone network provider. A company like Twilio is the one that I know that you can do this with.’
13:36 – 💬 ‘Setting up WhatsApp Business is super easy. It’s free to do as long as you have a second number. Setting up a second number costs peanuts, and it’s super easy to do using virtual things like Twilio.’
