How to Avoid WhatsApp Number Banning?

Let’s Understand the WhatsApp Number Block/Ban Process:

Let’s take the scenario of CAR:

No car is 100% safe or full-proof to avoid accidents. 

It always depends on how you drive it.

The same applies to WhatsApp Marketing and Number Block/Ban.

No tool is able to provide guarantee to avoid the number blocking on WhatsApp.

Even if you try to send bulk messages manually [without using any tool], there are chances to get blocked/banned by WhatsApp.

Here is the proof of one of the Facebook community members:


Here are some recommendations to reduce the chances of number blocking!

1. Be Human rather than a Robot

Your 1st message always should be interactive and conversational. So the receiver will intend to reply and start a conversation.

2. Make it Personalized

Always try to personalize your message with receives Name or any special deal. In this way, there will be uniques messages for each receiver.

Example:

Hi John,

I am David from CarWash Company from NJ – Your Neighborhood.

I found your number from the local directory.

We are running a limited deal for the weekly and monthly subscribers of our CarWash services.

In the above example,

  • Added the receivers name to make it personalize
  • Shared details on who you are and where are you from
  • Also shared the details on how you received their contact number

3. Respect Privacy and let them go

Always provide your receiver with an opt-out from your sending list. By providing some stop keywords like “unsubscribe” or “stop” don’t send them again. This way, you have a very filtered and interested contacts list.

PRO Tip: If they send you any stop keyword, then just m̶a̶n̶u̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶B̶L̶O̶C̶K̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶m̶  use our SMART REPLY Feature to automatically block them  from your WhatsApp contact and we will never send messages again in the future.

Hi John,

I am David from CarWash Company from NJ – Your Neighborhood.

I found your number from the local directory.

We are running a limited deal for the weekly and monthly subscribers of our CarWash services.

If you are interested to know more, just reply with YES and I will share the further details.

——–

If you are not interested and don’t want to receive any further communication then just reply with “stop” and I will not bother you again.

In the above example, 

  • We provide a clear CTA for the receiver to perform
  • And if they don’t want to receive any message from us then just reply to the stop keyword this way you have a filtered contact list who are interested.

4. Wait for the right time 

Avoid sending Promotional things and Links in the 1st message. Because, If the receiver number is unknown they are not able to click on the links and it’s always looking fishy to sell directly without any proper conversation.

5. It’s Marathon, not Sprint

Don’t try to send too many messages in one go. Try to filter your contact list and gradually increase the number of messages sending limits.

6. Personal Vs Business

You can use your number but If possible create a profile on WhatsApp business and use WhatsApp business for your WhatsApp marketing because as a WhatsApp business you have more details to showcase to your users, like – Business Name, Business Category, Catalogs, and all … so they can relate/crosscheck to you before taking any action.

Example:

NOTE: 

As mentioned initially in the post, these recommendations are only for your help and awareness of WhatsApp Marketing. The number might get blocked even after following this! [It always depends on how you drive]
