Sell via WhatsApp: how Blueticks helps you in this mission
In the midst of so many online business opportunities, selling via WhatsApp is a must for every company that uses the internet as an income channel.
It turns out that people use this application as a communication channel with friends and family. Therefore, selling through WhatsApp can easily cause a bad impression on consumers – if the company does not use it in the correct way.
But that’s no reason to be afraid and put this strategy aside. On the other hand, there are many reasons to create campaigns on WhatsApp. In this article we want to show you some strategies so you can sell through the app without harming your relationship with your customers. Shall we get started?
How to set up WhatsApp Business
First, your WhatsApp store account needs to be separate from your personal ones. The reason is quite simple: professionalism. No customer likes to message the store, see it online and not get a response. If you use your personal WhatsApp account, you will need to reply to all customers, regardless of the time.
But not only that, WhatsApp Business has more features compared to the traditional version. Specifically speaking of brands, it allows the creation of catalogs, automatic absence texts during a specific period, categorizing conversations and more.
That’s why you need to configure your store’s WhatsApp Business so that it looks as professional as possible. Therefore, consider:
- Insert the company logo as a profile picture (not your own)
- Create a catalog and add your product
- Inform your service days and hours and set up absence texts
- Configure shortcuts to standard messages (i.e. this allows you to inform your product exchange policies in a few seconds, saving you a lot of time).
