How to Use WhatsApp Groups Effectively to Boost Your Business!

0

Every other person you see today has the WhatsApp app. It has become the most preferred mode of conversation. According to statistics, we tend to have around 20-30 chats/conversations in a day.

In fact, people are also a part of minimum 4-5 groups. Keeping this in mind, let’s now come to how exactly you can use this information to your advantage to boost your Wooplr business!

Identifying your Audience

When you start your business it’s extremely important to identify your first set of users and invite them to try out your products. You also need to collect feedback from them once in a while.

Ideally, these first users are your family and friends because they are easy to approach & you know their taste & preferences.

Create a WhatsApp group for your store. This is where you can add people who are your regulars. You can post new products, sale announcements, discounts, contests, exclusive offers etc here.

To add people to your group, send them a Whatsapp Group Invite link. Inviting to join the group has more conversion then adding someone without permission. It leaves a positive impact on the receiver.

Best content for WhatsApp Group

The next thing is what to post in these groups. Ensure you post on a regular basis, preferably every day. Here are some ideas on what types of content you could post.

Share New arrivals

Share the best selling products (2-3) or new arrivals of the day depending on what might be more popular among your customers.

Testimonials

Share testimonials from happy customers. Get a customer to post a picture on their purchase and share it on the group. This gives your store more credibility and is also proof of how the products look for new customers.

Product Descriptions

Ensure you include ALL important information about the product while sharing it such as Price, Material, Colours and Sizes available, Discounts etc.

For instance,

“Stylish Kurti made of top-class Chanderi silk, available in S, M,L and XL, an additional 10% discount only for today! Available at just Rs.599.”  

Exclusive Offers

In the initial days focus on having a loyal customer base, Don’t worry about earning higher commissions. In order to keep your first customers happy, generate coupon codes and share on the group. This helps them understand that there are additional benefits of staying in the group.

Contests and Giveaways

Keep the group engaged by announcing interesting giveaways and contests. For instance, a contest could be, “Place maximum orders today to get Diwaah handbag worth Rs 999 absolutely free”. Promotions and small investments like this go a long way in establishing trust with your customers and retaining their loyalty. It shows your customers you care about them.

Grow Your Base

The best way to grow your customer base is to ask your existing customers to refer new people to shop from your store by promising referral bonus or discounts.

Connect with Your Audience

Once in two months or once a month try to meet up with people who stay in the same city as you. Not only does this help you establish a closer relationship with your customers but it also is a great way to make them feel like a close-knit community.

Time

When you share updates is quite important. Randomly posting whenever you want simply doesn’t work. You must observe when people are most active. Ideal times are in the afternoon around 12pm, evenings post 4 pm & late night post the dinner time.

When people are most active on the groups, you will have higher chances of getting more leads.

Smart tips to sell on Whatsapp!

0

If you’ve set up your online Wooplr store, the next step is to share it extensively. For this it is important to find an appropriate channel to use through which you can communicate with your customers.

Whatsapp is an extremely convenient social media channel being widely used today. You could run your entire Wooplr business on Whatsapp. Here are a few tips on how. 

Friends and Family Whatsapp Groups

Once you open your store, start by promoting on your various friends/family whatsapp groups.

You must already be aware of what categories are popular with your different groups. So share products accordingly.

Bedsheet, sarees, kurtis, dress materials – whatever they like, share the entire catalogue with them and do this regularly. 

Building Trust

Whenever you share a product, make sure you share all details about it as well. For instance, payment options, availability of Cash On Delivery, Returns or exchange policy. When you share these details, your customer gets more confidence in your product and their decision making gets a lot easier.  

Collect Product Reviews/Feedback

If a family member is hesitant about purchasing, buy the product for them and collect payment from them after, if they like it. There is always the return option in case they don’t.

If 2-3 people have already bought from your store, other people will follow suit. What you can also do to make this happen is collect feedback. Get your customers to share pictures of them with the product. Sharing this with your other customers helps increase their confidence in your business.

Product Description

It’s important to share all details about the product such as material, size in advance. For instance,

“Stylish Kurti made of top class Chanderi silk, available in S,M,L and XL, additional 10% discount only for today! Available at just Rs.599.”  

See how price, discount and material come together to become an attractive product offer. It grabs their attention.

Variety

When you show people different varieties of materials and designs, their interest increases since there are so many options. So while sharing, try to make sure that there are 10-15 products in each catalogue. When people see variety, they realize that there’s a huge collection for them to choose from and the supplier is genuine.

Whatsapp Status

Apart from sharing on groups, also ensure that you share best selling products DAILY as your whatsapp status. This is an easy way to generate leads. People will see your status and immediately ask for more details.  

Broadcast

Once you have created a decent base of people for yourself, you can add them to your broadcast list. For instance, there could be different lists for women and men; however your customers are divided.

Once the list is made, you must regularly update them with new releases, offers, sale, discounts and so on.

Time  

When you share updates is quite important. Randomly posting whenever you want simply doesn’t work. You must observe when people are most active. Ideal times are in the afternoon around 12pm and evenings post 4pm.

When people are most active on the groups, you will have higher chances of getting more leads.

Dream do Come True! How Pooja brought Big Brands to her Small Town!

0

My name is Sai Pooja and I am a homemaker turned business owner. From being completely dependent on my husband for finances, today I’m able to singlehandedly take care of all household expenses and my son’s school fees. I also made my dream of making a positive difference in my small town of Rishikesh come true with my online business. Here is how I did it.

I stay with my husband and son in a small town called Rishikesh. Rishikesh is a nice place to reside in, it’s simple and peaceful but not very advanced. Facilities are limited.

Last year I travelled to New Delhi and I was amazed by the number of big shops and brand outlets that exist in cities like Delhi. It’s while travelling to different cities that I realize what my city lacks. There aren’t any big brand outlets, no boutiques or fancy big clothing stores. There’s very limited access to modern fashion but if I was finding a need for it, I was sure there was more demand for it amongst other locals.

Turning Opportunity into a full-time business

I could clearly see my next steps. I saw an excellent business opportunity and I decided to open an outlet in Rishikesh, a boutique with a decent range of categories. But finding a supplier in this area was difficult. I wasn’t able to find the right products at nominal rates. Also, my lack of experience in this field added to the struggle and eventually I gave up.

That’s when my friend told me about the platform Wooplr. I assumed in the beginning that there must be some registration fee or investment but when I logged in, my store was ready. I simply had to add products which were also listed on the platform. To test it out I got my husband to place an order.

This meant that in the course of a single day, my business was live. I went ahead and told all my friends and family about it.  

Simply earning through Whatsapp Chats

My Whatsapp chats have now become a source of income for me. I regularly share products on WhatsApp with my friends and place orders for those who like it.

Every time a customer buys from my store I make 25% of the selling price as commission.”

I take payment from them if they like the product after it gets delivered.

Today the same people love and trust my brand and so they regularly place orders. My initial 50 customers are now 150 in number. I give my customers coupon codes and discounts when they refer someone else to my store.

I once met a teacher who resides in my colony through common friends. Being a teacher, she regularly requires sarees and must have ordered at least 8-10 sarees from my store. She’s so satisfied with her purchases that she went ahead and told all her colleagues about my store.

“Now there is a circle of 10-12 teachers who shop exclusively from my store. I’ve also made a dedicated WhatsApp group for them. Whenever there is a new collection, I directly share it there. Not just this, they also now order kids wear from my store for their children.”  

They also got me to put up a stall during an event at the school and I got a lot of orders that day. I sold numerous tiffin boxes and school bags.

I can’t believe I am able to live my dream without spending a penny. It’s so simple to start an online business now. All it takes is sheer will and good conversational skills.

“The one person happiest from this business is my mother because she’s always seen my struggle to start something of my own and I finally did it. And nothing brings me more joy than being able to make my mother proud.”

Have you ever wanted to start your own business and not have to take orders from someone else?

Have you ever wanted flexible timings and work from the comfort of your own home?

If either of these questions had a big yes, I have the solution for you.

Continue reading to know how you can also run your own business. 

My name is Roopa Chatterjee and I live in Kolkata. I was a Chemistry teacher at a school for 8 years but in all honesty, I couldn’t help but wish I was doing something different.

I wanted to be my own boss, run a profitable business and work from home. 

Life Changing Moment

I came across Wooplr by luck, a friend mentioned the platform to me. This was while I was still teaching. I checked out the platform and I was genuinely surprised.

“Reselling was a new concept to me but being able to simply sell products that are already available on a platform for free and make a commision out of it seemed phenomenal. Wooplr also takes care of delivery, payments and customer queries. I decided to try it out!

How I managed my whole business on Whatsapp

I set up my store with the kind of products I thought my existing network of friends and family would be interested in buying. Then I started sharing products on Whatsapp with people who live in my society. The response was great! 

People started asking for more and more options. Since the service was good people kept coming back to me. Every Time there is a function in my society people post the requirement in the group. Since it’s a close-knit society the word goes out fast. I easily make 100-200 Rs on each product.

“All it requires is to be active and understand your customer’s requirement. Give all the necessary details, be flexible and your customers will keep coming back. Highlight COD payment and easy returns policy. It worked wonders for me”

After successfully running my store for a good one month I decided to quit my job. By the end of the month, I had gotten 20 orders and made close to 5000 rupees. And this was with barely three hours of work and conversations each week.  

I discovered Facebook marketplace and decided to use it as my primary source for promotions. While Whatsapp works best for sharing with friends and family, Facebook marketplace gives you access to a massive number of people who might be interested in buying from you.

Using Facebook Marketplace to Grow My Business

  • Post an image of the product
  • Put a description/ appropriate links to the product
  • State the price of the product
  • Buyers can get in touch with you via Facebook messenger. Take the conversation forward by either placing the order for them on your store with COD option or send them the product link so that they can place the order by themselves. 

Today I’ve hit over 200 orders in the span of a few months, all it takes is a couple of hours each day and good conversations.

I found my true calling with Wooplr. You can too!

My name is Debasmita and I’m a 19-year-old college student from Kolkata.

From being a clueless college student with no clear direction in life to a successful business owner who is completely financially independent and manages college on the side. Here is my story!

Broke to Boss Girl

It started on one of those end-of-the-month broke days where I was really just looking to somehow make a few extra bucks. I was researching all kinds of options – freelancing, interning, affiliate marketing etc. online. That’s when I came across Wooplr.

“I couldn’t believe something like this existed. I now have the power to start my own online business, set my own timings and earn with minimum effort with absolutely no investment”

 

To start off, I ordered a couple of things for myself. This was to understand how the process happens, how long it takes, check the quality of products and also in all honesty, I wanted to see for myself if this service is legit.

Marketing My Business

I got the perfect platform to start my business, it was time for me to decide on the right channel to promote my business.

In this age of social media, I knew I had to get creative with a platform like Instagram to kick off my business.  

I set up an Instagram business page for my online store. I started posting regularly. Apart from my top picks and current fashion trends that they could find on my store, I also often post memes and just entertaining content. The first few weeks were slow, my following barely increased apart from friends and family. But I knew that consistency and patience were key. I continued to post and dedicate some time to creating content specifically for my page, maintain a theme.

“Today I have 4000 followers on Instagram, every time a follower shops from my store I make 25% commision”

How to Use Instagram to Make Big Money

Here is the exact 8 step process I followed to build my Instagram page

  • Set up an Instagram Business page. Put a suitable description for your store, explain the benefits. For instance, COD and Returns available

  • Post relevant products, highlight what’s trending.
  • Provide a detailed description for each product such as available sizes, delivery options, fabric etc.
  • Ask them to DM for more details, a clear action will help them take ext steps.

  • List your business number or email address, this way your customer can reach out to you faster
  • Always get feedback from customers and repost their picture testimonials, this gives your account more credibility.
  • Giveaways, I do one every month and they’re a great way to get more followers and keep customers happy

  • Keep in constant touch with customers from when they place the order until they receive it.
  • Promotions, I promote best-selling products once a week and it is yet another way to get your audience to notice your page and get them to take action.
  • Create a hashtag for your store like I have #mivcustomer. This helps all my customers feel like they’re part of a close knit community & my search results improve.

Today I’m able to indulge in a weekend getaway every month and take care of all my needs completely by myself. And all this while still in college. It’s truly an empowering feeling and every day I’m motivated to work harder and grow my business.

This could be you!
