Meta Is Assisting Brands By Enhancing WhatsApp Ads And Merging Its Business Suite With WhatsApp Messages

Meta is planning on giving brands a helping hand by utilizing messaging tools with a number of different advancements.

The company announced how keen it was to also take ad development on the WhatsApp platform to a whole new level. This includes merging the platform’s messages with Meta’s much-talked-about Business Suite. So let’s take a look at them all, one by one.


First things first, what better way to get the ad creation process running smoothly than enhancing it with upgrades? Meta revealed how it plans on allowing different brands to launch their own campaigns through the Business version of WhatsApp. Previously, users would need to alternate between the apps to achieve this goal. Currently, users wishing to gain an advantage of campaign activation would need to carry out different ad switches.

On the other hand, the company recently revealed how it wished to take its messaging unifying process to another level by combining WhatsApp texts with users’ inboxes in the Business Suite.

In this way, users may benefit from easier management of all interactions. Similarly, it will work at scaling down contacts.

The end goal is to gain a greater number of ways so that more and more people may benefit from and align themselves with the platform that they feel most comfortable with. Does that mean all of the inboxes seen on Meta will now be taken as a sole entity?

The answer is yes! Be it your Instagram, WhatsApp, or even Messenger inbox- you’ll have it all combined into one. This way, you’ll get to move on with private chats on the app of your preference.

But remember, good things come to those that wait so you might not be seeing the rollout until next year in May.

Meta has also shed light on how it plans on introducing another functionality that allows brands to get their promotional activities out through texts via Messenger, obviously to those that wish to opt-in.

For instance, there might be someone who wishes to get on board a particular campaign because it is of interest to them. Therefore, they will enable their notifications for any trending alerts like possible sales or any queries they may be having about products or designs too. What better way to drive sales in a new direction than this?

On the other hand, Meta recently spoke in detail about how keen it was to allow for ‘Lead Fitering’ through its Facebook app. This is another way of saying that business managers are on the lookout for ridding poor-quality leads via mini surveys in the form of MCQs.

Moving on to Instagram, Meta announced its decision to allow businesses to create quotes with the help of prospects being made from clients through questionnaires. These will mostly be displayed at the start of chats so they’re not missed out on easily.

Without a doubt, messaging can be a difficult hurdle to cross, in terms of revenue at least. Yes, billions do make use of messaging but you can’t just resort to adding ads here. For now, Meta is doing everything it can to make the best business models out there and this is a great start.
