Whatsapp is brilliant in these scenarios for several reasons:
- You can verify if the phone number still belongs to your prospect by checking the name and profile picture they have set on WhatsApp.
- You can see if your message was delivered and if it was read
- The person receiving the message can see your profile picture and judge if you’re legit before they decide to answer
- They don’t have to worry about colleagues overhearing a phone chat or seeing your mail on their computer screen
- Sending a text message is easy and safe
- With Whatsapp’s web clients it’s very easy to copy-paste conversations in your ATS
