Can I Create a 'Send to Whatsapp' Action?
Last updated: March 30, 2021
If you would like entrants to start a conversation with you on Whatsapp, it's as easy as creating a link to your Whatsapp account.
Remember to pre-fill your Whatsapp link with a starting message for better context.
You can use the WYSIYWG editors in campaign setup to create a button like this:
Set a Whatsapp Link as an Entry Method
To use 'Send to Whatsapp' as an entry method, you need to create a Custom Action on Gleam. Paste your Whatsapp link in the description area so users can claim entries when they send you a message.
To manually verify that users have sent you a message, you can ask for their Whatsapp phone number in the verification question.
Set a Whatsapp Link in Prize Description Area
If you don't want to incentivise Whatsapp conversations for entries, you can also create a link to your Whatsapp account in the prize description area. This will allow users quick access to your business from the campaign widget.
