2. Sell Other People Stuff On Whatsapp:

 This is another simple way of making money using WhatsApp. Lot’s of people have over 500 contacts on WhatsApp, This is a medium in which you can sell stuff to these status viewers of yours. 

You can sell stuff that belongs to your friends or yourself or even as an affiliate. You just have to post this stuff on your WhatsApp status and add prices and see what happens next.

The interested ones will reply or slide in your DM and ask you some questions about the product and you can make some sales at the end of the day.

This strategy will work for those with lots of status viewers especially the ladies and it might work for the guys too.(But not like the ladies) 

With people like me, it’s not going to work for me because I don’t give people my WhatsApp number and I don’t even upload status. So automatically, people that will view my status if I post is going to be small.

3. Use WhatsAd Market:

WhatsAd Market is a platform located here in Ghana that works like Google AdSense. They allow publishers to sign up to their network and display Ads on their whatsapp status and when any of the Ads get viewed they pay them some specific amount.

Just like I first said, they work like Google AdSense and the most interesting thing is they do not charge any amount of money when you are wanting to sign up or register to their service. It’s free and when you have a large number of audiences watching your WhatsApp status every day you can make some easy commissions daily.

So with whatsAd, you will sign up as a publisher and fill in the necessary info that needs to be provided and submit your registration. Note, they are just like other foreign affiliate companies. And so far from their reviews and our little research, we will say they are one of the companies here in Ghana that can help you monetize the precious time you use on WhatsApp daily.

Note that, WhatsAd is not only for Publishers only but for advertisers too. So if you also have a business that is legit you can contact them or sign up on their network as an advertiser or vendor. So they help you advertise your business to your fellow locals to increase your business reach.

 Another interesting thing about them is their advertisement cost starts from 10cedis and above.

Once you signup, pay and present the needed info they will help you advertise your business by using their signups thus, their publishers to do the advertising for you.

So for whatsAd, it’s everyone willing to make money on Whatsapp both those willing to advertise and those willing to publish or advertise on behalf of others.

2. Select Register and fill in the necessary info needed.
3. Select Register and get your account created at the instant
4. Log into your account and start working with it.

4. Advertisement Or Show Ads On Your Whatsapp Status:

This is another crucial way to make money using your WhatsApp groups, but for this procedure, I will recommend it to those willing to advertise their businesses on various WhatsApp groups or platforms in search of new customers.

You might be a vendor, seller or provide any freelancing skills like writing essays and articles, selling your products etc. To get new customers in other to boom your sales, you can create a WhatsApp group and share its links on social media platforms for interested individuals to join.

You can also search for WhatsApp group links posted on social media platforms like Facebook and Telegram or sometimes even Twitter. You join these groups and then prepare your Ads or advertising messages and start sharing it with these groups.

The more you join more groups, the higher you be lucky to get new customers daily. But sincerely, I will suggest this method for individuals that are selling various skills but not physical products. This is because location differences can cause problems.

You can search for these group links on Facebook, Twitter and Telegram by typing the following keywords in your search box.
” Whatsapp Music Groups”, “Whatsapp Group Links” “Ghanaian Teens Whatsapp Groups”

Search stuff like this or similar to the ones provided above, and you will get enough Whatsapp groups to join, so you advertise your services, goods and start making some passive income from using WhatsApp in Ghana
