How to create link to Whatsapp in Instagram (Free)
Today, Instagram is a complete business tool for both individual entrepreneurs and huge international companies. Instagram is used to promote their products and services, notify about promotions, discounts.
Instagram offers to use as communication methods: phone, email, and also allows you to add only one active link. But, unfortunately, in the modern world this is not enough. Most people now use instant messengers for communication.
Of course, you can add text with a phone number to the description of your Instagram profile, write that you can be contacted on Whatsapp or Viber using this phone number. But it is much easier for the client to switch to a convenient messenger with one click.
Receiving messages or applications via the messenger is convenient not only for the client, but also for the entrepreneur: there is no need to quit current affairs and answer calls. You can allocate time and analyze the received applications.
WhatsApp is the most popular and convenient messenger. But there is a small minus – you cannot write to a person on WhatsApp if he is not in your address book. Creating a new contact, then searching for it through the messenger, opening a dialogue is inconvenient. A great solution is a direct WhatsApp link button.
Using the YAPA.page service, you can start communication even if the number is not saved in your contacts or phone’s address book.
A new client visits a business page and sees a button with the text “Write on WhatsApp”. Visitor presses and automatically goes to the messenger, starts communication.
