Do you wish to learn How to Make Money on WhatsApp?
Some people use WhatsApp to make passive revenue every month, while most people just use it to view status, chat, and share videos… LOL!
There are several ways you can use to make money on WhatsApp easily and this article will give you 9 of them.
For those of us who don’t use WhatsApp, it’s a popular messaging app spanning over 2 Billion Users scattered across 180 Countries, the app has simply been phenomenal since its release.
WhatsApp is also used by Businesses and Brands to display their Shop, Close Deals as well as advertise their products for free, you only need your target audience’s contact.
Without Further Ado, let’s take a look at the 9 top ways to make money on WhatsApp, it only keeps getting better…
ySense is a global online community with multiple earning options, their users make money with paid online surveys coupled with other cash offers one can think of.
In this case, I am not talking of signing up to ySense as a worker.. no! You should sign up as a referral, then they’ll give you a unique link.
When your friends or anybody uses that link to signup and start earning, you’ll make 30% of whatever they make.
Let’s take, for example, Victor has 1000 contacts on WhatsApp, he manages to get 200 of them to signup for ySense and they all start taking paid surveys and cash offers.
If by the end of the month, each of your referrals makes $50 per month, that means the gross revenue is $10,000 and your referral commission is $3000, this is great money isn’t it? Imagine referring more people.
Most people in the online space don’t know about Monetized Link Shortening when you mention link shorteners the first ones that come to mind are;
- Tiny.cc, etc.
The link shorteners mentioned above and others that operate similarly are not able to be Monetized, they are simply meant for link cloaking and branding.
- Shortening any long link.
- Sharing the Short Link and getting people to click on it.
When people click on your link, you’ll make a lot of money, am talking about $4 for 1000 clicks, you can constantly shorten links to valuable resources, then share them to your WhatsApp Story, Groups, or friends.
When 1000 people click on the link(s), $4 will be live on your account, you can also use the referral tab on your account to refer your friends, that way you’ll make 20% of whatever they earn for life!
Imagine if your friends or people you referred via WhatsApp are about 200 and they managed to make $100 each, the gross revenue is $20,000 and you’ll be paid $4000.
Sign up for ShrinkEarn ( ← If you sign up for ShrinkEarn using this link, I’ll have you under my account manager who’ll help you make up to $20 for 1000 clicks).
Affiliate Marketing remains my preferred method of making money on WhatsApp, you make more money as your contact lists grow bigger.
You can also share your Affiliate links in your WhatsApp Story but the most effective strategy is to post your links on niche-specific groups.
A YouTube Training Group probably has members who are new to YouTube and haven’t signed up for Tubebuddy yet, well, Tubebuddy has an affiliate program that’ll pay you big time when your referrals purchase a Premium Subscription.
You can start a niche group yourself and get members by spreading the word on forums, Social Media, etc, that way you’ll have the liberty of posting your affiliate links and since you’ve established trust by teaching them either for free or for cheap, they are 98% probable of clicking on your link and making a purchase.
The main key factor here is to find an affiliate program that’ll pay you well, I like to use Impact (an affiliate network) because you get paid straight to your bank account and you can sort affiliate programs by CPL and other metrics.
CPL stands for Cost-Per-Lead, this means that these programs will pay you for confirmed Subscriptions or newsletter signups on their landing pages.
Anyways, here are other Affiliate Networks that’ll pay you good money:
- Warrior Plus.
- CPA Grip.
- Amazon Kindle Publishers.
- Health Market.
- CJ Affiliates.
Affiliate Marketing doesn’t take time to master, it’s just about connecting the right audience with the right product at the right time.
You may need a PayPal account to get paid from some of the affiliate networks, before you start the promotion, make sure you’ve entered your payment details, so you won’t spend time promoting products on a network that doesn’t support your preferred payment method(s).
You can use WhatsApp to close deals for either product you sell or for a client. Most people need personal persuasion to go for purchase online whether it’s for a physical or digital product.
WhatsApp Business has the essential tools that’ll help you with your Online Business.
The app lets you create a profile for your Business, respond to customers faster with quick replies and automated messages, etc.
These features are just the tip of the iceberg, the two features which caught my interest are:
- Creating Labels to help you organize and tag your contacts and chats.
- Showcase your products and services with a Catalog.
WhatsApp Business is the best messaging software that’ll help you connect with customers, everybody who sells physical products should be using it.
You can create a Blog or Website and use WhatsApp to drive traffic to your blog, when people visit your blog, they’ll see ads, purchase products, or subscribe to your mailing list.
After starting your WordPress Website, you should write 15-20 articles and then apply for Ezoic or any other ad networks for small publishers, this way you’ll earn money when people visit your website.
To add an extra stream of income, you can add affiliate links to your articles, this way, when you get traffic, you’ll make money from ads and when they purchase products or services from your affiliate link(s), you’ll make commissions.
WhatsApp Viral Scripts
Ever received an “Independence Day” Celebration Free Data or Money link just as soon as you open a chat with one of your friends?
Probably Yes, everybody loves free stuff and is most likely to click on your link after all they have nothing to lose.
All you have to do is to create a free website on blogger.com, then download a WhatsApp Viral Wishing Script, upload the template to your Blogspot site and then use the Customizer to change text, graphics, and animations concerning the holidays or celebrations.
Make Sure you download those types of Viral Wishing Scripts that require the user to share to let’s say 10 friends or 5 WhatsApp groups before they can claim their data or money.
You should do the initial sending out to your friends and to WhatsApp groups you’re on, then those guys will help you disperse the links and make them go viral.
However, you should add advertisements to the page so you can earn from the visitors, the best Ad Networks for The Viral Wishing Script are:
I can’t say for other ad networks but for Propellerads, you won’t be accepted if you use the free .blogspot domain, you need to purchase a domain and you can do so with less $7 on Namecheap (<– Use this link and Get Huge Discount on first 3 purchases).
You probably never heard of ‘WhatsApp Ads’ before but it’s a real thing and it works, Businesses pay people to post their brand or products on their WhatsApp Stories or Groups.
The Key to gaining this strategy is to build a community around yourself, gaining as many contacts as possible from several groups and creating and growing your very own WhatsApp group(s).
You can create a WhatsApp group(s) around your expertise where you teach people for free, you shouldn’t allow everyone to post, that way, people or brands will pay you to post advertisements.
The only catch to WhatsApp groups is that you can only have less than 300 members per group, that’s the reason why people start Broadcasts.
Broadcasts are way more profitable than groups but you should combine them.
You can use WhatsApp to create paid Groups, this entails that people will pay you to become members of the community where they can maybe find real-time solutions from you or get Live Coaching.
It’s up to you to arrange the sales funnel, maybe, you can write an article on your website or on Medium.com (If you don’t have a website), then share some premium content for free, at the end of the article, you should add a CTA, something like ‘Join my Premium Coaching or Live Learning Group on WhatsApp Today!’.
The link from that CTA should point to your WhatsApp DM with a text saying something like ‘I’m Interested in the premium coaching, how much will it cost and what will you be teaching?’.
When the user pays you, you simply add them to the group, and everyone benefits, you get paid they get what they paid for.
Let’s say you know a thing or two about blogging and you teach that in your YouTube Channel, you can use WhatsApp to get more Subscribers and more views which means more Ad Revenue.
You can use Google to search for ‘Blogging WhatsApp Group links’, join the groups and then start adding all their members to your contact list.
Every Member of the group(s) are 99.99% interested in Blogging, so when you share content to your Story, they’ll most likely interact and engage with your content.
You can DM each of those contacts you gathered from the groups and let them know about your Channel, once they reply to your message, they can see an update to your stories.
That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t build a relationship with them, they’ll most likely check out your videos and if they’re good, they’ll Subscribe and help you make passive revenue from YouTube.
In this article, I’ve listed the 9 ways which I’ve personally used to make money on and with WhatsApp, I hope it was very helpful.
