Whats App is not limited to leisure and time pass. It is the biggest bridge of communications. If you think hard, you can see a number of uses of Whats App, not just for entertainment, but for many other things. It is like an anchor for businessmen and employees.

Being a means of communications for business needs, Whats App will be useful for progress in your business. It can be used for organising sales team and for constant consultations among those involved. At least 250 persons can be included in a group. A company sales manager, can organise a group easily. You can connect very quickly and easily on Whats App, when compared to mails.

As it takes time to call up and speak, customers can easily complain about services or products through What's App. You can know about the complaint status. However, experts say that it is difficult to reply to a large number of complaints or views, through Whats App. At such times, complaints from customers can be accepted through Whats App and replies can be sent through mails. Whats App is also used for marketing and promotions. Colgate has used Whats App recently, to promote its toothpaste. It called upon users to send smiling selfies through a Whats App number, written on a toothpaste pack. It announced that winners could be crowned as Stylist, by brand ambassador, Sonam Kapoor. You can use this as feedback from customers. It is possible to know customers opinions, if Whats App number is printed on the products.

In various ways

  • You can seek doctor's appointment through What's App. Also, you can get doctor's advice and suggestions for common health problems through What's App.
  • If you send the prescription through Whats App to the Pharmacy store, the medicines will come home in a pack.

Whats App can be used as a small online school. Teachers, students and parents can be added in one group. Teachers can take up tuition's for students, through Whats App, after class hours. They can give reply to students' questions, send audio and video clippings regarding their lessons and assignments or graphics and charts. As it is not advisable to give access to children to Whats App, teachers should align with parents in this regard.
