How To Add Whatsapp Send Message Button To Facebook Boosted Post

Advertisers on Facebook can now add Click-to-WhatsApp button to their Facebook boosted posts, thereby making it easier for people to learn about their products, set up an appointment or use their service with the click of a button. This also makes it possible for advertisers to get Facebook users to chat with them on Whatsapp without having to expose their phone numbers to the public.

The Whatsapp CTA button for Facebook boosted posts is also similar to the click-to-Messenger button that Facebook previously rolled out for Facebook ads. It requires advertisers to select “post engagement” objective while boosting Facebook posts and also requires confirmation before the whatsapp number can be linked to the Facebook page.

The ads that have the specific CTA will only be seen by people who actually have the WhatsApp app installed on their devices. They will look the same as normal News Feed ads but will have WhatsApp’s logo instead of Messenger’s. Also, when tapped, WhatsApp will open with a message that users can change before sending to the business. The message received by the business, will contain the person’s custom message and an image of the Facebook ad so that the source of the message can be identified more easily.
