Offer Chat and Messaging to your customers using YourBusinessNumber.
From copywriters and designers to artists, musicians and filmmakers, creatives are used to handling lots of incoming messages at any one time – and it can be overwhelming. Make life easier for yourself and create a better work-life balance with WhatsApp Business.
Increasingly, creatives are turning to messaging services such as WhatsApp to talk in real time with their clients – and more clients than ever expect a professional, timely response when they choose to communicate via messaging apps. Setting up WhatsApp Business is an ideal way to provide just this – with a personalised business profile, away messages, and loads of tools to allow you to stay on top of incoming messages like the pro that you are.
If you already have WhatsApp Messenger set up for personal use, you’ll need a separate number for the Business app… and that’s where we come in. There’s no need to pay for a brand-new phone for work use – with YourBusinessNumber you can generate a unique UK mobile number in just three clicks. Simply download the WhatsApp Business App for free and use your new number to activate your account. It’s so easy!
You definitely should! Facebook attracts over 1.4 billion monthly active users, including loads of potential clients and customers for your creative services. Maintaining an up-to-date Facebook business profile and making it as easy as possible for clients to get in touch makes a good first impression and helps you to book those clients.
Creatives everywhere are using YourBusinessNumber and business messaging apps.
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.
