WhatsApp Click to Chat feature enables people to chat with you without them having to first save your phone number on their phone.
As a business owner, this could be very helpful for inquiries and in turn yield a higher conversion rate as most clients prefer to be able to quickly and easily make inquiries.
When this link is properly set up, once it is clicked, a client would be able to chat with you instantly.
HOW TO CONFIGURE:
First of all, make sure the phone number you want to use has an active account on WhatsApp.
Use: https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone= followed by your phone number in international format, without any zeros, brackets or dashes.
Correct Format: https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=2348001234567
Wrong Format: https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=+234-800(1234567)
Extra Tip: You can go further to use a URL shortener such as Bit.do, Goo.gl, or Bit.ly to make your WhatsApp Click to Chat link look shorter and more attractive before sharing it on your bio, linktree, website, etc.
