Offer Chat and Messaging to your customers using YourBusinessNumber. With so many potential clients preferring to schedule, book and contact their beauty therapists through messaging, there’s never been a better time to set up a Business messaging profile for professional use.
More Beauty Therapists and Hairdressers than ever are using messaging apps (including WhatsApp Business) to communicate in real time and offer an improved service to their clients. Messaging apps offer a quick and easy way to answer client queries, advertise availability and special offers and boost bookings, all while maintaining a better work-life balance for you.
You’re likely already set up on WhatsApp Messenger for personal use, but in order to set up WhatsApp Business, you’ll need a second number. That’s where we can help – and it couldn’t be easier. In three clicks, you can generate a second, unique UK mobile number with YourBusinessNumber and use this to set up your WhatsApp Business App.
That’s a great idea! As Facebook attracts over 1.4 billion monthly active users, many of whom are potential clients for beauty and hair services, you’re making a smart move.
As more and more people look to social media profiles such as Facebook and Instagram to check out new beauty therapists and hairdressers, keeping your contact details up to date is crucial in securing new clients and repeat bookings. Give your customers the option to get in touch via messaging apps and make it as easy as possible for them to book your services.

Therapists and Hairdressers everywhere are using YourBusinessNumber and business messaging apps to take their businesses to the next level.
No, you can use it for other messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal and Viber. You can also use it to sign up other apps such as Uber or Deliveroo.
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.
No, it’s not possible to use WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone. You can only use one number per account.
YBN 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 number it gets forwarded to the mobile number you signed up with (your main number) and you have a talk time of up to 1 minute.
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.
Yes, you can have both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business but as stated above you need a different number for each WhatsApp and would therefore need to buy another phone with another SIM. YourBusinessNumber gives you a UK mobile number that allows you to use both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone.
You can cancel your subscription by clicking here. If you cancel your subscription your YBN number will be terminated.
