WhatsApp Business for Personal Trainers…
Communicate in real-time with your valued clients using YourBusinessNumber. Instant messaging is the perfect way to market yourself effectively to potential new clients, respond to queries, book in new sessions and build rapport with your entire client base.
Why would I need another number for my personal training business?
Personal trainers are quickly seeing the value in using messaging services such as WhatsApp for Business to communicate with their clients. From using personalised greetings and away messages to ensure that clients feel looked-after, to promoting special offers and events, messaging is ideal for personal trainers to keep on top of their customer relations.
If you already use WhatsApp Messenger to chat to your family and friends, you’ll need to purchase a second virtual mobile number in order to set up WhatsApp Business. This has the added benefit of allowing you to keep your own number private, while promoting your business number on your website, social media pages, and more.
That’s where YourBusinessNumber can help. We generate a unique UK phone number that can be used to activate WhatsApp Business. Simply download the app for free and sign up using the number we send to you. It’s that simple!
The best WhatsApp Business Tools for personal trainers include:
- A personalised Business profile
- Away messages and out-of-office notifications
- Separation between private and professional messages
- Automated greetings to your clients
- Label and categorise chats according to client type
- Silence your work number from 5pm
- Keep your personal number private
Can I add my personal trainer business number to my Facebook Page?
Yes – in fact, we recommend it! Facebook has more than 1.4 billion monthly active users, so it’s a great place to market yourself to potential new clients. We’d suggest adding your WhatsApp Business contact details to your page.
With people increasingly using social media to research, choose and check out the credentials of their local businesses, it’s important to keep your contact details up-to-date.
How could I utilise messaging more in my personal training business?
Successful PT’s use messaging apps to:
- Answer queries
- Get feedback
- Promote availability of slots
- Schedule and confirm bookings
- Provide support to clients
- Upsell packages and deals
- Send videos and audio to clients
- Create group chats for exercise programs
Don’t just take our word for it.
Personal Trainers everywhere are utilising YourBusinessNumber and business messaging apps.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I only use YBN for WhatsApp Business?
We currently support customers looking for a virtual number to get themselves verified on WhatsApp Business. Get your virtual number here.
Why do I need a second number for WhatsApp Business?
You need a second number for WhatsApp Business as you are not permitted to use the same number as your regular WhatsApp account. This would mean buying another phone with an extra monthly contract or pay as you go SIM. With YBN you can get that number to run your business through WhatsApp Business without having to buy a second phone and for a considerably cheaper price than another contract.
Can I use WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on same number?
No, it’s not possible to use WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same number, but you can use your YBN number in the WhatsApp Business app and your personal number on WhatsApp - on the same phone. Get your virtual number here.
Can I use my YBN number for normal calls / texts?
YBN virtual numbers can only be used in messaging apps. The number attached to your SIM card is for normal calls and SMS messages. If someone places a normal call to your YBN virtual number, it gets forwarded to the SIM card mobile number you signed up with free of charge.
Is an eSIM the same as this product?
No. An eSIM is an embedded chip inside your phone that acts exactly like a traditional SIM card, removing the need for swapping SIM cards if you move networks. You can have more than one plan from different networks on an eSIM, but the drawback with this is that you can only use one network at a time. With a number from YBN, you don’t have the issue of using one at a time - you can use your business number in tandem with your personal number, whilst still being able to separate it out.
Can I have both WhatsApp and WhatsApp business?
Yes, you can install both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business but you need a different number for each messaging app. YourBusinessNumber gives you a second virtual UK mobile number that allows you to use both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone.
How do I cancel my subscription?
You can cancel your subscription by clicking here. If you cancel your subscription your YBN number will be terminated.
