Whatsapp Business For Landscapers
Offer Chat and Messaging to your customers using YourBusinessNumber.
Landscapers and gardeners everywhere are discovering the potential of instant messaging for work. With increasing numbers of clients preferring to communicate via WhatsApp, there’s never been a better time to harness the power of these platforms – and revolutionise the way that you work at the same time.
Why do I need a second phone number as a landscaper?
Landscapers need an easy, hassle-free way to communicate with clients – without being interrupted mid-way through a job with distracting phone calls or lengthy emails. With WhatsApp, you can reply quickly to client queries, schedule and book work, send appointment reminders and so much more. The best part? You can keep your personal number private, meaning that once work is done, you can really switch off.
But what if you already use WhatsApp Messenger to chat with family and friends? It can be very overwhelming to have your social and professional chats all mixed up, not to mention potentially embarrassing if you send a message meant for a friend to a new client.
What’s the answer? Don’t worry, you don’t have to shell out for a whole new phone contract and handset. With YourBusinessNumber, you’re only three clicks away from a unique UK mobile number, ready for you to set up with the WhatsApp Business App.
Simply download the app for free and follow the steps to activate your account. It’s so simple!
Landscapers will love using the WhatsApp Business tools, including:
- A personalised business profile
- Display your work hours to protect your time
- Away and out of office messages
- Automated greetings for customers
- Share photos and videos with clients
- Keep personal and professional messages separate
- Use labels to categorise messages by location
- Silence your work number after 5pm
- Maintain the privacy of your own number
Can I add this number to my Social Profiles?
Yes – and you absolutely should! Facebook attracts over 1.4 billion active monthly users, including plenty of homeowners looking for landscaping and gardening services. Keep your Facebook business profile up-to-date and make it as easy as possible for new clients to get in touch with you directly – you’ll make a great first impression.

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.
