Before we move into the full details of what WhatsApp TV is all about, let’s quickly explain WhatsApp itself.
What Is WhatsApp?
WhatsApp is simply a social media platform which people or organizations use to communicate (Send messages, files, contacts, documents, voice notes and other supported media) with friends, family and business partners globally.
WhatsApp is used by over 1billion users all-round the globe.
I’m very sure you already have the app on your phone but even if you don’t, you probably must have heard about WhatsApp.
For the purpose of this article, we would emphasize on the business aspect of WhatsApp. Research has shown that WhatsApp has made a very good number of people millionaires without much stress. Those who are aware of how powerful WhatsApp is in terms of business, have been making a lot of money from WhatsApp on daily basis.
There are countless ways to make money on WhatsApp but the truth is that; you might not succeed in any of these ways if you have few audience (that’s few WhatsApp contacts). What determines your success in any form of WhatsApp marketing is your audience and that is why it is very necessary to build and continue building contact list on WhatsApp.
The more your WhatsApp contacts, the more the potential customers you might have. This is one of the reasons why you need to continue striving to get more WhatsApp contacts and to get more people to save your own WhatsApp contact as well.
So, let’s go to the main topic of discussion.
What Is WhatsApp TV (or WhatsApp Television)?
WhatsApp TV is not a platform on its own neither is it an app on its own. WhatsApp TV is simply a branded account created on the WhatsApp platform by WhatsApp users.
Let’s take for example, when you create your WhatsApp account, instead of using it just to chat with friends and family, you can decide to use it to entertain your contacts through constant status update or any other means. So, the WhatsApp account used mostly for entertainment is called WhatsApp TV. You got it now, right?
The WhatsApp TV (television) was made possible by the new status upload feature embedded by Mark Zukerberg on the platform.
How Does WhatsApp TV Work?
It works by using the status feature to upload funny memes, short funny video clips, funny jokes on a daily basis on your status to enable your contacts to have what they watch to keep them entertained anytime they get to view your status.
Setting up WhatsApp TV is not what matters most, the most important thing is building large audience (that’s getting many WhatsApp contacts). Having a WhatsApp TV with few contacts is just like having an empty church building without members. So the major target is to build a list of thousands of WhatsApp contacts.
The higher your contacts, the higher your viewers and the higher your chances of making more money on WhatsApp.
