Many of us have struggled with the idea of making money and how to do so. There are many ways you can make money, such as using your skills, applying for a job, starting a small business, etc. Today I will be talking about making money with WhatsApp – an app that is installed on most phones these days. You can use this app to chat one-on-one or in groups and send videos, audio messages, and pictures all around the world for free!
Top 10 ways to make money from WhatsApp
1) Promote Your Affiliate Links:
You can post your advertised products/services on WhatsApp and earn a referral bonus for each product sold via the advertised link. For example, if you have an online shop that sells clothes to your customers, you can simply add the given URL in your message box and send it to all of your WhatsApp contacts. This is a great idea because you have direct access to your WhatsApp contacts. They can see what you are selling and know it is being sent from someone they trust – YOU, their contact! If they buy any of the clothes/accessories that were advertised within your message then you will get a percentage cut for each sale.
This is a great way to earn money on WhatsApp and one that I am exploring myself.
2) Sell Products/Services:
WhatsApp is currently the best free messaging app in the market and has the largest user base (estimated 1 billion users worldwide). So why not use this opportunity and sell your products via WhatsApp? This is a great way to market your business and make it known worldwide.
3) Hold A Virtual Auction:
There are various websites online where you can register free of cost and create virtual auctions that people can bid on. You simply list the product with its description, how long the auction will be open for (start price, buy now price at the end) and how much you are willing to sell the product for. You can then exchange WhatsApp with interested buyers who will bid on your products. Once someone has won, you can choose to either deliver the product yourself (if it is local) or ask the winner to pay you first, and then you will send them the item.
4) Business Opportunities:
Thanks to how quickly they can reach their customers, there are tons of new businesses popping up every day on WhatsApp. If you have an idea for a service or product but don’t have the funds to start your own business, WhatsApp is the best way to tell locals about your ideas and services. This also allows you to get feedback from potential customers, which can be hard when you are just starting.
5) Be A Consultant:
Do you have skills or knowledge in a certain area? Then why not use WhatsApp to offer your consulting services. Whether you are an expert in graphic design, web development, or cooking – there will always be someone out there who is looking for your service. You can simply create an advertisement for your local group, and people will get in touch with you once they see what you have to offer!
6) Pay per download Apps:
Many websites like payperdownload.com where developers can upload apps, and people who use WhatsApp can download these apps onto their phone for free (in return, the app will start displaying ads within itself). The developer uploads the app on this Website and gets paid each time someone downloads it via WhatsApp! This is a great way to get started with your apps and get a large number of downloads from WhatsApp users within a short period.
7) Receiving Money for What You Buy:
There are many services online where individuals can buy or sell items using the WhatsApp messenger app. This is very convenient because both buyer and seller have direct access to each other, which will increase the chances of a successful trade!
8) Drive traffic to your Website:
If you have a blog, then this is the perfect way to generate more traffic. You can simply include your blog’s URL in your WhatsApp message and tell people about it. When they click on your link, you will get paid per visitor and for each product sold from your Website!
9) Sell Your Music:
If you are a musician or simply have an idea for a song, then why not sell your music on WhatsApp? You can easily upload your songs to websites like www.zapya.com and create free playlists that people can download from within the app. You can tell them about it via WhatsApp and get paid each time someone listens to your songs.
10) Refer apps to friends:
There are many online applications where you can refer your friends and family for free and get paid each time they download something. The current top app available is called Prizerebel – a website where you can receive points per referral and redeem these points to buy items from the store. You can simply create an advertisement on your WhatsApp group and tell people about it. When they sign up, you will get paid!
