I’m a tradesman – why do I need another number?

With the popularity of messaging apps skyrocketing in recent years, it’s no surprise that more clients than ever prefer to communicate with electricians, plumbers and builders via WhatsApp. If you’re constantly fielding client queries, you’ll know it’s really difficult to stay on top of work messages when they’re mixed up in the same app as your personal chats, but luckily, YourBusinessNumber can help.

You might think you need to buy a second handset in order to set up both WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Business and keep your professional and private chats separate – but you’d be wrong. We provide you with a unique UK mobile number that can be used on your mobile. Simply download the WhatsApp Business App for free and sign up using your new number. That’s it!

The best WhatsApp Business tools for tradesmen include:

  • A Business profile to showcase your services
  • Away messages
  • Out-of-office messages
  • Separate work and private messages with two WhatsApp apps on one phone.
  • Automated greetings
  • Links to your social media profiles
  • Privacy of your own mobile number

Can I add this to my business Facebook and Instagram profiles?

Sure! We say that’s a great idea, especially since Facebook has more than 1.4 billion users each month.

More and more homeowners and business owners looking for building work are using social platforms, including Facebook, to research and scope out their local businesses – and keeping your contact details up-to-date is sure to make a great first impression.
