How to Use WhatsApp for Business Marketing ?

  • Internal communication with the team – Every business leader / teams are required to be in touch with their employee so it is a great platform as everyone is easily available on WhatsApp easily. And there in no requirement to ping individually, a group can be created for all office communication.
  • WhatsApp for customer communication – If you do your follow-up on WhatsApp instead of direct phone calls, you can get prompt response from the customer. For example- Suppose you have sent a quotation to the customer but not getting the response. Then what you will do, will you again send follow up email or call the customer. So instead of doing this you can just do short messages to the customer about the progress or status of his/her case. Might be you will get the immediate response.
  • Use of WhatsApp for customer support – You can showcase WhatsApp number for immediate help and support. This way the customers can resolve their query in shortest time. Raising the ticket and follow the procedure takes more time than usual. And it irritates customers, sometimes.

However using WhatsApp for customer support is not good for all types of business, so first analyse what type of business you have. If you are running a large business firm then it won’t be suitable for you.

  • Use whatsapp for marketing and promotion – WhatsApp is a great tool  for promoting product and service. You can use WhatsApp to send promotional images, text messages, audio files, short videos of your products to users across the world. Unlike emails or sms, there is less restriction on the format and delivery chances are higher.

You can create a group of loyal users. Those who want to get new updates of your collection and you can send message to them. Flooding lots of text messages, images would not work, so check the response of your audience then plan the activity accordingly.

On the basis of your business, you have to think more creative ways to market your products and services in WhatsApp.  You can run some contest, give them prize. It will help you to engage more with the customer.

  • Connect across your family audience – If you are planning for opening a shop like food corner then you can spread it to all your family members and relative to help you. The more you make connection the more your business will be famous. You can open to one option “order in WhatsApp”.  It will help customer to order food in the shortest time.
