If you think WhatsApp is limited to only sending text messages, you’re wrong. Today, people spend more time on WhatsApp than on their personal social media profiles. Bloombees is optimized for sharing through Whatsapp and allows you to target your relevant contacts (customers) in mass through the WhatsApp broadcast feature.
WhatsApp may pride itself on having “no ads, no games, no gimmicks,” but you can still use the service to sell your product or business. The question is, how do you use it to help your business?
When using the Bloombees app, you can share detailed information about your checkout or a specific product with a single click. Simply follow these easy steps:
Choose a product from your product grid, and click on the ‘Share’ button.
From the list of social networks, click on the WhatsApp icon.
Pick the contact (or contacts) you would like to share your product with, and write a message to this person.
If you would like to take it a step further, you may choose a product that you would like to privately publish, and have only your dearest friends take an exclusive look at an upcoming product before it goes public.
In today’s world, maintaining a social media presence is crucial to building your brand. While Facebook already allows you to keep in close contact with potential customers, as well as fans, WhatsApp takes it to the next level.By enabling a messaging functionality between your business and prospective customers, the communication can grow into a sale. Posting WhatsApp contact information in a Facebook status is also a common practice among individuals and retailers.
Bottom line? WhatsApp may not be a be-all, end-all solution to social media marketing, but it only costs $1 a year. You never know how many new customers you’ll connect with.
