Expand your business through Click-to-WhatsApp advertising

Never just use one channel to promote your eCommerce business. Each social media platform has its own unique set of users, so it is important to explore as many different social media platforms as possible to reach as many potential customers as possible.

If you have more than one social platform, Click-to-WhatsApp advertising is a great tool for you. By using this ad format, businesses can drive traffic from Facebook and Instagram to WhatsApp.

Click-to-WhatsApp ads not only reach existing customers, but also increase your brand’s chances of reaching more interested users on each platform. If you have only one platform with chatbot automation installed, or want to consolidate all your online traffic into one channel, Click-to-WhatsApp ads are the best choice for you.
