Introducing WhatsApp Business
WhatsApp Business is a separate application designed specifically for businesses to interact with their customers. While it shares many features with the regular WhatsApp application, there are some key differences between the two:
- Business Profiles: WhatsApp Business allows businesses to create profiles with detailed information such as business description, address, email, and website. This helps customers get more information about the business.
- Business Messaging Tools: WhatsApp Business provides additional messaging tools that are not available in the regular version. These include automated greeting messages, quick replies, away messages, and the ability to create and send broadcast messages to multiple recipients.
- Verified Business Accounts: WhatsApp Business offers the option for businesses to get their accounts verified, indicating to users that they are communicating with an authentic and legitimate business.
WhatsApp Business API: Unlike the regular version, WhatsApp Business has an API that allows businesses to integrate WhatsApp into their own systems and workflows. This enables more advanced features such as chatbots, customer support automation, and integration with other business tools.
How does it work?
With our integration with WhatsApp Business, clients can express interest in a particular listing and share their requirements via an automated message that includes all the key details of what they are looking for. For example, as new leads come in on the agency website, they can click on the WhatsApp icon on your listing pages, and an auto-generated message will be directly sent on behalf of your agency’s WhatsApp Business account.
Additionally, a notification will be sent to the associated agent’s own personal account including the inquiry details. This will ensure that no leads will slip through the cracks, meanwhile giving managers full transparency of inbound leads.
Property Raptor will also capture the lead details and the listings that they are interested in. If this is a new lead, a new lead record will be automatically created, assigned to the agent that is responsible, and chats will be recorded under the Chat Message history.
For any existing leads, the system will match their contact details and update the lead’s record seamlessly. Ongoing conversations and messages through the WhatsApp Business account will be automatically captured and logged in the lead record.
Why the integration?
The WhatsApp integration aims to help agents speed up response times, which is critical in the real estate business. By responding quickly to inquiries, agents can build greater trust and establish rapport with potential buyers, leading to increased conversions and referrals.
We believe that this will provide agents with a more efficient and effective way to generate leads and communicate with potential buyers. With the ability to store all information in one central location, agents can easily manage their leads and stay on top of their follow-up efforts.
