It’s time to draw the line between your social life and work life!

Use YourBusinessNumber to offer real-time chat and messaging to your customers. When you run a small business, it’s crucial to be able to communicate effectively and securely with your clients – and that’s where the WhatsApp Business app can help.

Why do I need another number for my small business?

You can install WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on a single phone, but you require two different numbers to do so.

As a small business owner, you know how important it is to be able to stay on top of messages from your clients – but when your professional and personal chats are all mixed up, it can be difficult to stay on top of them all. It can also be difficult to draw a line between your leisure and work hours, leading to overwhelm and burnout. Not good!

If you already have WhatsApp Messenger set up on your phone, you might think the only way to set up WhatsApp Business is to buy another phone – but luckily, that’s where we can help.

In just a few clicks we can set up a second UK mobile number for you to use to activate the separate Business app, while using one phone. Simply download the WhatsApp Business App for free and sign up using your new, unique mobile number.

The best WhatsApp Business Tools for small business owners include:

  • A personalised business profile
  • Display your work hours to manage client expectations
  • Automated away and out of office messages
  • Categorise chats using labels
  • Maintain separation between your social and work messages
  • Automated greetings for customers
  • Add short links to your social profiles
  • Keep your own mobile number private
  • Stay on top of your work messages at a glance

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

Yes – you absolutely can and should! As Facebook is home to more than 1.4 billion users each month, you’ll be missing out if you don’t keep your contact details up to date. Making it easy for customers to transition from your social media profile to getting in direct touch with you can make all the difference when it comes to generating new clients and keeping in touch with your current customers.

How could I use messaging more as a small business owner?

Successful Small Business Owners use messaging apps to:

  • Secure bookings and sales with new clients
  • Keep existing clients informed and updated
  • Schedule and confirm sales and bookings
  • Get feedback and reviews
  • Ask how you can help
  • Upsell clients to premium products and services
  • Promote special offers and events

Don’t just take our word for it.
