In the fast-paced and highly saturated digital marketing realm of today, WhatsApp has become an integral channel for global communication. It offers a secured space for businesses to engage with their target audience. WhatsApp marketing can amplify customer engagement and personalized communication, thereby strengthening brand loyalty and driving sales. However, small and medium scale businesses often face challenges in effectively leveraging WhatsApp for marketing. Due to the lack of reliable tools that run the marketing campaigns in compliance with WhatsApp’s stringent policies, risk of number bans due to improper messaging prevails.

Getting the WhatsApp green tick verification: 

For brands and businesses that are looking to establish their presence and authenticity on social media, acquiring the green tick verification on WhatsApp is crucial. The green tick signifies that WhatsApp has verified the business account, which can enhance the brand’s credibility and customer loyalty. Below is a guide to obtain this verification:

  1. Meeting WhatsApp’s eligibility criteria:

To be considered for verification, the business must:

  • use WhatsApp Business API
  • have a registered business name that matches the brand
