How To Use WhatsApp To Make Money

Brian Acton and Jan Koum were the two brains behind WhatsApp existence. WhatsApp is a cross-platform instant messaging app that enables users to exchange text, image, video and audio messages for free using a supported mobile device.

Today, WhatsApp is the most used messaging app despite competition from others such as Facebook messenger, Wechat and Allo, developed recently by Google.

For those who are business inclined, WhatsApp can be a channel for you to expand your horizon. You can use WhatsApp in a way that can help you generate a substantial amount of cash. How true is it?

Practical Ways of Monetizing WhatsApp

WhatsApp monetization in this context doesn't mean displaying ads or whatsoever similar to it. It simply means ways you can use WhatsApp beyond the normal chat stuff and use it to earn.

You can use WhatsApp to organize training or seminars

Sometime this year, I and my partner, Oyetunde Faniran organized an online training on Mastering the act of blogging and blog monetization. This training took place on a WhatsApp group. It wasn't a free training, people who were interested in it paid for it.

Now ask yourself, how can you also do the same? If you are into information marketing and the sales of ebooks or videos seemed not to be profitable as before, then you should you try WhatsApp by creating a group. You can do virtually any training on WhatsApp. What you need is a reliable internet connection, your smartphone or PC and you are good to go.

The benefits of doing training or seminars on WhatsApp is that, anyone no matter the location can be a participant. There is no cost of transportation or cost of renting a venue. Participants can go back anytime to read the information as long the group is not deleted.

You can use WhatsApp to send news stories and get paid

There are some news websites that want the public to send them authentic eye witness news which will include the photos/video and they will pay you an amount if the story is published. Make use of such opportunities.

You can use WhatsApp for marketing

Whether it is content marketing or product marketing, WhatsApp can be a good medium to reach more people. Create a broadcast list and then send your information. Do not send offensive content, else, you will be blocked permanently by the recipient.

Do you have any other method(s) you can use WhatsApp to make money? if yes, please do share by leaving a comment.

Women tend to have more followers on Instagram, probably maybe they love taking photos and Instagram is more of photo sharing. Well, I've never really taken Instagram serious until of recent. I used to wonder how do people get much followers, so I decided experiment. I created an anonymous Instagram account. Now I see how people increase their Instagram followers.

How To Get More Instagram Real Followers

*. Be active.
*. Share interesting photos and videos.
*. Use relevant hash tags on your photos and videos.
*. Tag relevant instagram users to your posts.
*. Advertise on Instagram.
*. Create posts that prompt others to be tagged.
*. Like others' photos and videos.
*. Comment on relevant posts made by other Instagram users.
*. Do giveaways.
*. Instagram account used for keeping up with friends should be different from the one for business.

These are natural ways to get real Instagram followers. Some people buy followers, but of what use is it to your business if your followers doesn't match your business goals? In time they will unfollow you. Therefore, attract only Instagram followers whom are interested in your business.

Tips For Standing Out On Social Media

Getting in touch with the right audience can be a huge nightmare. There are many channels which are available, but you must ensure the method of choice can reach as many people as possible. The cost of marketing should also be low to decrease overhead costs. Are you looking for the best method? Try social media. Social media provides an ideal platform for marketing.

Being in social media alone is not a guarantee people will read the posted message or see photos. Smart strategies must be employed to stand out among the many similar products. These five tips can make you be on top of the game.

Be Active

Publishing after a long duration turns off the minds of followers and potential followers. If people realize you do not update your page regularly, they stay away. Posting is essential in keeping your followers captivated and expecting something new every day.

Avoid posting offensive messages and photos that might kill your brand. If you do not have something useful to post in a particular time, it is better to remain mute. You may destroy your reputation by posting silly things.

Take Videos

Many people like watching short videos. Film yourself as you walk around your home with a pet like a dog. After posting the video, your followers will be enticed to have a look at it. And if it is a good one, it can easily go viral and have thousands of views.

Get Support of Prominent Personalities

Well, known persons like celebrities can help in making of brands. Use a friend of the prominent person to reach him. Famous persons also want supporters, and they know entrepreneurs can provide the much-needed back up. It can helps to expand your followers' base.

What Motivates You

There is something you aim to attain. No person would be happy to be associated with a visionless individual. Feel free to talk about your motivation. Remember to include your passion.

Customize Your Information

Uniqueness is vital in attracting a wide audience. Go an extra mile and have an inspirational message. Great quotes encourage people. Reading magazines, newspapers and books give the much-needed punches. Great ideas assist much in overcoming the obstacles and having a new lease of hope. Make your social media page the source of inspiring quotes.

What You Need To Know About Google Allo

Allo is Google new smart chat app for android and iOS platform. Google Allo is more than just a chat app. The messaging app is smartness, as it has a feature called Smart Reply. Smart Reply makes it easier for you to reply to messages quickly by suggesting to you near-to-accurate responses. For instance, a friend asking you "Are you at home?", Smart Reply suggest to you a "yes". If someone sends you a photo, you might see Smart Reply suggestions like “aww cute!” Allo read the context of your conversation and provide automated responses.

Allo allows you to express yourself with photos, emojis and stickers. Allo can make emojis and text larger or smaller in size by simply dragging the “send” button up or down. You can take photos of your own by scribbling on them before you send. Allo offers the ability to draw on photos and videos (Android only).

Allo comes with a chatbot called Google assistant that help you find information so quick without leaving a conversation. For instance, you want to share an info, share your favorite YouTube video, just type @google to bring your assistant into any group chat. You can also chat one-on-one with Google assistant, ask for information and you'll get it right away.

With Allo, you can message friends who aren’t yet using Google Allo through SMS and get replies.

Now that you've know what Google Allo does and probably you must have downloaded it. Before you stick to Allo, it is imperative to know about it privacy issues.

Allo is not an end-to-end encrypted app and Google is storing all your chats with Google Assistant on their servers.

According to Google spokesperson, users are given "transparency and control over their data in Google Allo". Allo is provided with "the option to chat in Incognito mode, where messages are end-to-end encrypted and you can set a timer to automatically delete messages for your device and the person you’re chatting with's device at a set time."

Incognito chat mode for end-to-end encryption means the chats disappear after sometime. A user can tweak the expiration time for each message in this incognito mode. Please note that incognito mode isn't turn on by default.

There are hopeful signs that Allo might replace WhatsApp as most used messaging app, but only time will tell.
