How to reduce blocking when sending Whatsapp mailing from the platform

  1. 1.
    It is recommended to send a mailing list to those who have previously had correspondence with the phone number on which the bot is connected.
  2. 2.
    Set time intervals between messages instead of sending the whole packet (this is in the bottom line of the mailing list settings)
  3. 3.
    Do not send links in the first mailing message (it is better to create a chain in two blocks, and send the link when the user answers the first block) then you create the mailing list from the block, not from the mailing list section
  4. 4.
    Do not send content that people may regard as spam (can click on spam, and SIM will be blocked. There is no clear statistics on which account the complaint occurs)
  5. 5.
    Virtual numbers block instantly, no one knows why or how they recognize them
  6. 6.
    Add an unsubscribe button so that those who do not want to receive messages can refuse them not only by pressing the "Spam" button.
  7. 7.
    Use random message parts to make the mailing personalized.
  8. 8.
    Connect the bot to the Whatsapp business. There is no exact data that this reduces the chance of locking, but it is known that in case of locking it is easier to communicate with Whatsapp support for unblocking. Also, when a message comes from a particular company, it inspires more trust among users.

User experience in anti-lock control

This text is written by the user, who in the course of his activity received blockages from Whatsapp and revealed patterns.
If you do not want to hit the ban:
Send no more than 5-10 messages per minute, i.e. send messages in portions rather than all at once; Connect a number registered in WhatsApp older than 90 days. If you have just registered the number, then wait 24 hours before connecting it to the service and for 24 hours, keep correspondence on whatsapp. Consider user response to message. It usually takes 3 clicks on the client’s "Spam" button to block the number; Having links in messages increases the likelihood of ban; WhatsApp’s physical limit on the number of messages is not present, but there is a recommendation not to exceed 5,000 messages per day. If the number is higher, it is better to scatter them on several different accounts. Or, if the number of incoming and outgoing messages is about the same, you can send a little more than 5000;Use a device with no previous bans; Receive incoming messages. The more incoming messages, the better. Incoming messages are not counted in a recommendation not to exceed 5000 messages. Do not write the same messages. Use the masks that are in amoCRM and Birik24 to substitute automatically the name or data from the fields. It is also recommended in construtkor to use random answers and occasional delays before response. If you connect a WhatsApp number to a CRM or any designer, be prepared to have your number BANNED for violating the license agreement! If banned Write to WhatsApp technical support with the question of why the ban and whether it can be unblocked. The first lock is likely to unlock the number. Responds TP quickly, within 2-3 hours.
Attention! Even if the number is returned, the connection on the previously locked device must follow the instructions: Uninstall the locked WhatsApp/WhatsApp Business application. Remove Google account (disable sync with current Google account) Disable WiFi Turn off phone Replace sim card. Turn on the phone. Create a NEW Google account and go under it; Install the WhatsApp/WhatsApp Business app on the mobile internet; Register WhatsApp number on the mobile internet. Scan the QR code on the mobile Internet. Let the integration work on the mobile Internet 2-3 hours. Connect Wi-Fi. Use WhatsApp Business. It is designed specifically for business. Do not send out mailings with a number you are afraid to lose. Don’t send the same messages. WhatsApp tracks the same messages and it’s also a banit. Try to change at least one word in the message. If you are working from CRM, take some data from the fields.
