Send WhatsApp messages without saving contacts
On 2021 we have witnessed a continuous increase in the amount of businesses using WhatsApp as a customer service channel (if not the main one), now companies understand the desire of users to connect in a personalized and comfortable way through chats because it's simple and at everyone's reach.
Even so, unlike other platforms and apps, it is not possible to search for users within WhatsApp as if it were a global directory to add them and chat. The main way to send messages in WhatsApp requires the user to save the contact on their device so the app can enable it to chat. Now there are 3 alternatives to send WhatsApp messages without saving contacts.
1. WhatsApp links
WhatsApp links are the most effective tool to drive traffic to your chat from digital and traditional media. By clicking the link, you will reach the chat of the phone number assigned to that link and then you can send WhatsApp messages without previously saving the contact.
Free WhatsApp links
Every WhatsApp account has its own link which you can add a custom message for users to start the conversation. Besides that link you can also create additional WhatsApp links with a WhatsApp link generator like ours for free. Simply add your phone number and the message you want people to send you after they click the link.
Branded WhatsApp links
To grow in brand awareness and provide a trust worthy link to users, it is also possible to create branded links like
wa.link/MyBrand in our platform Walink Premium .
A branded link created at Walink allows businesses to edit the link's info whenever they need, connect it to the WhatsApp Business catalog and even list it in our WhatsApp links search engine.
WhatsApp QR codes
QR codes are inherent to links generated in our platforms, so they are an excellent option to send WhatsApp messages without saving contacts. Besides, QR codes have a great advantage over links when it comes to traditional media as you can print the image to be scanned by users at any location.
2. Open Walink
Open Walink is a web app we released at the end of 2020 you can use in your browser and even install in your device. With it you can open WhatsApp chats without saving contacts in your smartphone neither clicking links.
Go to open.wa.link so you can open WhatsApp chats in 2 ways:
