Creating a Facebook ad that integrates with WhatsApp Business
Here’s how you can go about adding a WhatsApp button to your Facebook posts and ads.
Step 1: Select the existing post on your Facebook page that you wish to advertise or create a new one and publish it to promote the post.
Click the Boost Post button as shown in the screenshot.
Step 2: Select Send WhatsApp Message under Post Button on the left side menu to add a call-to-action (CTA) button to your post.
You may preview the boosted post on the right.
Note: Set your objective as post engagement to use this button as shown in the below image.
Step 3: Enter the mobile number associated with your WhatsApp business account to receive the 5-digit confirmation code. Once you receive the confirmation code, enter it and click on the Confirm button.
You will receive a confirmation message along with a green checkmark once your WhatsApp number gets connected to your Facebook page.
Step 4– Now is the time to build the rest of your ad by defining the target audience, budget, and duration (preferably for at least four days for better outcomes) for your ad. Then click Boost to submit it to Facebook.
And you’re all set! When the user clicks the Send Message button in the ad, the WhatsApp window will open on their phone so that they can directly start interacting with your business from the post itself.
