“Now I can switch off the noise (and my boss!) when I want.”
Laura can now switch off by splitting her personal and work life using YourBusinessNumber and Whatsapp Business.
Laura works for a global accountancy company in London and her boss (a partner in the company) works very long hours, often leaving messages for Laura on Whatsapp all through the night for her to action the following day.
Before YourBusinessNumber Laura received continual notifications via Whatsapp as Laura tends to keep it on for friends and family (messages she is actually interested in!).
Now Laura uses her #YBN number with Whatsapp For Business and gives out this number to all of her work colleagues (and anyone else she thinks may be annoying!) - separating out her work life from her social life.
Whatapp for Business is turned off at 6pm - leaving her to open it up again at a time of her choice.
Switch off the noise (and annoying bosses!) like Laura and get #YBN today!
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.
