There is no doubt that whatsapp is one of the best social media platform. It has more than 1.2 billion users across the globe and has proven to be one of the best apps to make money online.

Some people don’t know how to make use of this opportunity. As a result, I’ll be discussing how to create and monetize whatsapp TV. Also, in this guide, you’ll know the steps you need to take to grow your status TV.

About Whatsapp TV

Whatsapp TV is a whatsapp feature that helps to entertain whatsapp users. It’s a platform created for businesses to engage their audience.

With whatsapp business account, you can start making money by helping different businesses promote their product on your whatsapp TV.

It is a platform that allows you to post advert on your status. So, you can start earning money as people views your whatsapp status.

What You Should Know About Whatsapp TV

If you’ve heard about whatsapp TV but wondering what a whatsapp television really is, you’re not alone.

Whatsapp TV is the normal whatsapp account we all know, I strongly guess you have the app installed on your phone already. It becomes a television when you use it to entertain your contacts by posting interesting stuffs on your status.

It can be normal whatsapp or whatsapp business (WA Business). You can use any of the app to run a whatsapp TV. However, I’ll advise you to use the WA business app. You should know that you’ll have to add a lot of contacts so that you can get a lot of status views. You can only claim to own a TV if many people are viewing your status.

Why You Should Use WA Business to Run Your Whatsapp TV

While you can use both whatsapp and WA business to run your whatsapp TV, you should use WA business to run your TV. Some of the reasons why I recommend using WA business to run your whatsapp TV are discussed below.

WA Business let you;

  • Set Up Your Business Details

The app gives you the opportunity to set up all the necessary details your business needs, one which normal whatsapp can’t do.

  • Reply to Message Automatically

This feature is enough to convince you that WA business is what you should use to run your whatsapp TV. With WA business account, you can reply to messages automatically even if you’re not online.

However, you’ll have to enable the auto reply feature. After that, you can customize it to your taste. Everything is absolutely under your control.

  • Add an Awesome Logo

A well designed logo will surely makes your TV looks more professional.

  • Keep Track of Your Messages

Whatsapp business account allows you to keep track how your audience are replying to your sent messages.

These are some of the reasons why you should use WA business. As you can see, it has features that can help your whatsapp TV stand out than using normal whatsapp.

Now that you know it’s better to use WAbusines to run your WhatsApp TV, you may want to ask,

Can I Use Both Whatsapp and WA Business on the Same Phone?

Considering the fact that it’s better to use WA business to run whatsapp TV, you would want to know if you can use both apps on your device. Fortunately, you can use both apps on your phone easily without any problem.

You can use the normal whatsapp as your personal account and use the WA business to run your TV with different numbers.

Things you need to do to Start Making Money with Whatsapp TV

While whatsapp TV has been one of the platforms to make money online, some are really finding it difficult to earn reasonable amount out of it.

Anyone can make money with whatsapp TV provided that you have the time to engage with your audience. But there’re some steps you need to take.

Before you start your WhatsApp TV, it’s important you know what you need to run it successfully. There are lots of TVs that are making pennies, just because they don’t know the right things they need.

how to run whatsapp TV successfully

Some of the things you need and steps you should take to make money with whatsapp tv are discussed below.

1. Choose a Niche

You need to know what you’ll be engaging your audience with. Choosing the right niche for your whatsapp TV is one of the first steps you need to take.

There’re lots of niches you can choose. You should choose one that matches what you love to discuss about.

Although, you can combine niches, but it doesn’t always work. The niche you choose will help your audience know what to expect from you.

2. Grow Your Audience

Making money from your whatsapp status requires you to have a large number of audience. So, you have to invest some time in building a large fan base. As a result, you’ll have to treat your whatsapp TV as a business.

You should know that traffic is one of the keys to making money online. For instance, if you own a blog or a YouTube channel, you’ll need traffic to make money with it. In this case, you’ll need to add a lot of contacts to make a decent amount of money from your TV. In short, the more contacts you have, the more you earn with your whatsapp TV.

You can use any advertising platforms to promote your whatsapp TV online. You can run some adverts on facebook or any other platforms linking to your TV to get more contacts.

3. You Need a High Capacity Phone to Run Your Whatsapp TV

A good smartphone is one of the things you need to run a whatsapp TV successfully. Though, you can use almost any smart phone to start. But once your TV starts growing, you’ll need a high capacity phone to run it smoothly.

This is because, if you’ve added a lot of contact, your phone memory will get occupied with lots of message and start hanging. So, in this case, a phone with a good RAM and high ROM should do the tasks smoothly without hanging.

4. Save Your Contacts in Your Email

Your phone memory can’t handle much contact. As a result, you will need to save all your contacts in your Google mail.

You can also import all your existing contacts to your email. One of the good things about saving contacts in your email is that you can always access your contacts even if you change your phone.

All that being said, lets discuss how to monetize whatsapp TV and how to start it. Let’s start with the later.

How to Start a Whatsapp TV

Starting a whatsapp TV is easy. What you need to do is follow the steps below.

You’ll need to create a WA business account for your TV. However, as I’ve said earlier, you can use normal whatsapp to start it, but it’s recommended to use WA business account.

How to Create a Whatsapp Business account

Follow the steps below to open a whatsapp business account.

  • Download whatsapp business account app from Google play store.
  • Launch the app you just downloaded.
  • Click on “Agree and Continue” and input the phone number you want to use for the whatsapp TV.
  • After that, you’ll have to give your account a name and an image. You should name the account the name you want for your WhatsApp TV, and then click “next”.
  • Once you click on next, your whatsapp TV is created.

Note: You can also use your previous whatsapp number if you want. But you should know that your chat history will be moved to whatsapp business if you use your previous whatsapp number. I’ll advise you to use a new number for your whatsapp business account.

The top tips I’ll recommend for you to monetize your status tv are discussed below.

You can start making money by placing adverts of people’s products on your whatsapp TV. What you have to do is update your status that the account is open for advert. However, you shouldn’t do this if you have not added enough contacts.

This is because people might request for the number of your status views to confirm that you’re worth helping them promote their products. As a result, you’ll have to grow your audience before letting them know you can help them promote their products.

What you need to do is write a short interesting article and include your affiliate link about the product that will trigger your audience to buy the product.

Sell Your Own Product

If you’ve got your own product to sell, this is a great opportunity to make your business sells more effectively.

Some of your status viewers will definitely be interested in your product. You can even offer different product at the same time to boost your chances.

Services like recharge cards and data are always in high demand. And if you’re not offering this services, you can easily opt into offering recharge and data services to your followers.

Offer Online Classes

Online classes is also one of the ways to make money with your status viewers. You can just create a premium classes for your viewers that have interest on what you want to teach.

Depends on what you want to teach, you can always decide on how much they’ll pay you.

  6. I'd like to remain Anonymous

    Good content but it is a bit deficient. You mentioned little or nothing about referral contests and how growing a successful WhatsApp TV can be very expensive. I do most heartily suggest you make a sequel to this content and if possible, invite the likes of the Nation TV you recommended to systematically outline how the TV was started and the methods employed to grow it. Getting three or more successful TVs to do similar things should be within your reach and please add the mobile contact of the TVs you recommend so we can also join, it’s not like you just search the name of a WhatsApp TV on a search engine and the phone number just pops up.

  7. Uche Blessing Chinenye

    Then how will I get paid sir

    1. Victor Odediran

      @Uche. How you’ll get paid depends on how you choose to monetize it.

      If you’re helping people to display advert on your status, they’ll have to pay you.

      If you’re promoting third party products, just like an affiliate marketing, you’ll get commission for every sale from your end

    Wow! This is a very good start and an eye opener. I wasn’t taking it serious before but then I met couple of old friends who usually view my statues last week on different occasions and they actually talked about my posts and it also led to several discussions on different important topics people usually ignore or take lightly and I even enjoyed the fact that I’m achieving the aim of making people talk about the reality of what have been wanting them to.
    Well, I’ve been thinking of starting a whatsapp TV lately but one of my friend actually gingered me this last weekend and seeing this now, it just tells me exactly how everything is going work out fine. Thank you for this 👍👍
