Improve your work-life balance with a new business number.

If you work for yourself, you already know how important it is to stay on top of your workload. With WhatsApp Business, you can make life easier for yourself and your clients – it’s a win-win.

Why do I need another number for my consultant or freelance business?

Clients increasingly want to get in touch with you via messaging apps like WhatsApp – but as you already use the Messenger app for your private chats, it can be difficult to stay on top of all those work messages. Sound familiar? It doesn’t have to be this hard!

With YourBusinessNumber, you can set up both the WhatsApp Messenger app and the WhatsApp Business app on the same phone – without having to purchase a second handset and pay for another phone contract. We provide you with a unique, virtual UK mobile number that you can use to set up your Business app.

Getting started is easy. Simply download the WhatsApp Business app for free, generate your new number, and use it to activate the app.

Take advantage of WhatsApp Business exclusive tools for freelancers:

  • Manage your personal Business Profile
  • Away Messages
  • Categorise and label messages to keep track easily
  • Separate your social life from your work life at a glance
  • Send automated greetings to clients
  • Set up out-of-office and away messages
  • Add social profile short links

Can I add this to my freelance or consultant Facebook Page?

Yes, you can! As Facebook attracts more than 1.4 billion monthly active users, including plenty of business owners and creatives, it’s a great idea to update your contact details with your new Business number.

Social media platforms such as Facebook are increasingly popular for generating new client leads and staying in touch with your current customer base.

How could I use messaging more in my consultancy or freelance work?

Successful consultants and freelancers use messaging to:

  • Get feedback and sign off quickly
  • Answer client queries
  • Confirm briefs and job bookings
  • Advertise availability of services
  • Offer helpful tips and expertise
  • Share images, video and audio with clients
  • Upsell clients to premium services

Don’t just take our word for it.
