Showcase your products with WhatsApp Business Product Messages

You might already be using WhatsApp Business as a communications channel for things like customer service, customer feedback, and marketing. However, what many people have yet to discover is the power of WhatsApp Product Messages as a highly innovative and effective way to boost your sales potential on one of the world's most popular online messaging channels.

The way it works is fairly simple: WhatsApp has developed an extra feature that allows you to send  messages to your customers featuring services and products that they might like. They can request those products or you can personalise things based on what you think will be of interest to them. You can customise these messages to suit the buying patterns of each individual consumer and bring their favourite products directly to them.

Why You Should Be Using WhatsApp to Let Customers Know About Products

Firstly, research has shown that 68% of adults are more likely to buy from a business that they can message directly. For this reason, brands are constantly on the lookout for new ways to improve dialogue and overall communication with customers by using social messaging platforms and technology such as chatbots and virtual assistants. The immediate, one-to-one, personalised communication channel offered by WhatsApp Business allows customers to interact with the company on their terms on a platform that they’re all familiar with.

On top of this, the WhatsApp open rate of 98% and click-through rate of 45-60% are absolutely gigantic in comparison to other messaging channels, meaning that consumers are considerably more likely to engage with the Product Messages that you send them.

In short, by tailoring your Product Messages towards the needs and buying patterns of your clients and using the chatbot to offer them a quick, automated and efficient way to buy the products that they like, you’ll increase your rates of conversion and leave your customers feeling much more satisfied with the service on offer.

What Do WhatsApp Product Messages Look Like and How Do They Work?

After you've contacted your customer with a personalised message regarding something that you think will interest them, they have the option of choosing to learn more about the offer. They can do so by asking questions about the products, services or brands that have caught their interest. The chatbot will then provide them with automated responses with more information, helping them make a decision about what they want to do. When the customer is convinced that they like what they see, they can place an order and even check out without having to leave the comfort of the chat. It’s all part of one seamless, efficient experience on their communication channel of choice.

From a customer's point of view, the personalised nature of these messages is both practical and reassuring, as they know that the offers that they’re receiving are relevant to their needs and buying patterns. The fact that it’s on one of the world’s biggest communication platforms also reduces the possibility of messages being lost in the middle of other offers, as can sometimes happen with other channels.

From an online brand's point of view, Product Messages provide you with a simple yet innovative way to showcase and share your products and services directly in the app, making it considerably easier for customers to view your products and place orders in real time.


If you're looking for a way to boost sales and streamline your service while saving yourself a considerable amount of time and money, we at CM.com can make that happen by getting you started with one of the world's biggest mobile messenger apps.

Boost Black Friday Sales with WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook

Black Friday stands out as one of the most anticipated shopping events of the year, with half (51%) of UK adults planning to spend during the Black Friday weekend, higher than the 39% planning to spend in 2022. With this, big and small businesses will strive for maximum exposure. Yet, this task is far from straightforward. Retailers must compete to be visible, overcome high advertising costs, and meet escalating customer expectations to cut through the noise and drive conversion. Moreover, every touchpoint in the customer journey represents a make-or-break opportunity to form relationships and drive transactions or risk losing a consumer’s interest and trust.
