Do you know that WhatsApp has a self-subscribed function? Everyone knows how vast the WhatsApp network with hundreds of millions of users and the power of groups in WhatsApp is which has been extremely useful. Businesses have benefited greatly from WhatsApp Business with the ability to broadcast messages to specific target groups.
Use WhatsApp differently
If you have used WhatsApp to broadcast messages to your customers, potential customers, clients, visitors or members, then you know just how good this function is. It is convenient, very affordable (free even), efficient and very accurate. Now, what if we tell you that you can now turn the tables.
Instead of sending mass messages to your customers, you can let them subscribe to you. Why would anyone want that, you might ask? The answer is simple.
When your customers subscribe to you, it means they are interested in your products, services or company.
By subscribing to you, it means they don’t wish to miss anything that you are offering. This means you have full control over your sales.
How does it work?
The process is very simple and straightforward. All you need to do is to follow the steps below and we will take care of the rest. We are committed to helping your business grow and flourish through the best applications and technologies. Since we have the process know-how, we are more than happy to walk you through and have your business success in no time!
First, you will need to scan your WhatsApp number to your dashboard which means the system now recognizes your number. If you do not wish to mix your business and personal numbers, then you need to get a new number solely for this purpose. This process takes between 10 and 30 minutes. It is okay if you are unsure as we will assist you all the way.
Then, you decide how you would want to allow WhatsApp users to join your WhatApp number. Once you have done that, you will then place the instruction. This means that you have to determine and decide if they can get to your WhatsApp number either through a website, name card, flyer or others.
The users will then be able to see a link that is provided in the platform concerned. It will look something like (wa.me/60122228888). They will be able to click on the link which will automatically initiate a message where they can then send to your number. Take note that this message invoked by the click can be appended with a keyword. For instance, if you are a restaurant owner, you could use keywords like family, dining, weekends, steamboat.
After that, you can start broadcasting a message to your subscribers. This can be done without any fear of having your number blacklisted and banned by WhatsApp.
Why use WhatsApp Auto Reply?
The most apparent reason why you should use the subscribe tool is that you minimize any risk of being banned by WhatsApp for unscrupulous broadcasting, which has been very rampant in recent years. This means that instead of sending and broadcasting messages with or without any of the users’ consent, you are now turning it around. Since they are the ones asking for information by subscribing, it is no fault or wrong of yours in any way. Besides that, you enjoy benefits like:

You can now receive direct replies from your subscribers allowing you better and faster communication with them.
Better and more efficient communication. When you anyone subscribing to you, you are in constant connection with them which means you can do follow-ups faster.
