WhatsApp is increasingly becoming an important channel for sharing campaigns. Although we find that the majority of supporters still choose to share on Facebook, the 1:1 nature of WhatsApp means WhatsApp shares are much more effective at generating traffic – in some campaigns, we’ve seen each WhatsApp share deliver 15 times as much traffic as a Facebook share.
To make it easier to build WhatsApp share links, our development team have built this tool. It allows you to easily create WhatsApp share links with pre-loaded text – for example:
You can use these links anywhere, including share buttons on landing pages or in emails. They should work both with the mobile app and web.whatsapp.com.
Here’s the link to the tool – feel free to bookmark and use whenever you need: https://forward-action.
