HOW TO MAKE MONEY FROM WHATSAPP?
#1 Link Shortening Services
This is a relatively easy way to make money using WhatsApp!
What you need to do to make money with this? It’s pretty simple, just use the paid URL shortening services such as Shorte.st, etc.
What does that mean to you? It means that these paid URL shortening services allow users to shorten links to various web properties using their site. And for each click on these short links, the user will be paid a certain amount of money!
Let’s understand more about this awesome strategy of make money online.
To start with, you will need to find out a well rewarding link shortening service. You may do this by running a simple Google search. Once you find a good shortening partner, register on that site.
After registering, it’s time to find out an awesome viral content that can get hundreds and thousands of clicks. Usually, stuff like links to funny images, hot/trending news, viral videos, interesting facts etc tends can go viral easily. Make it a point to search hard and find such stuff from the web. You may also use links to your site/blog’s articles and stuff too if you own one.
Once you have a viral content, create a short URL of that and share it on your Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc. This technique is not limited to Whatsapp only but you can use it on any social media websites.
To maximize profit on WhatsApp, share the URL to your WhatsApp contacts. You can create relevant Whatsapp groups for example funny images, funny videos, trending news etc and share these links over there. Another excellent idea is to create a ‘Broadcast list’ and share the link to more than one contact at a time!
The intention here to increase the ‘views’ and the reach of the shortened link. Along with the link, provide a brief description regarding what the content is all about! Suppose you are sharing pics of funny gifs, write a description like- ‘Epic funny gifts that’ll make you laugh non-stop!’. Write a catchy description so that more and more people will click through, upon seeing the link and description.
If everything is done right, the link will get clicks! For each click, you will be paid a certain amount. It may vary from 0.01 to 5$, depending on the country/territory from where the clicks are recorded.
For clicks from developed countries like USA, UK, Australia, Germany etc, the payout rate is pretty decent. So, it is safe to say that people from the above-listed countries can definitely take advantage of this method and generate the decent amount of money with relatively less effort!
#2 Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is pretty simple if perform correctly and WhatsApp is a pretty powerful platform to make use of this method to make some money online.
Basically, Affiliate marketing is all about promoting products and services of companies/brands etc and earning a cut/commission for each sale you get! In most affiliate programs, you will be provided unique URLs or affiliate ULRs of company’s products that you’ll be promoting online. For each sale that is made via your unique URL, you will get a commission.
How to get started with making money from Affiliate Marketing?
It’s pretty straightforward. You will first need to find a rewarding Affiliate program!
For example, Amazon.com affiliate program is a perfect for you if you do not have any website. Because most Affiliate programs require a publisher website. Why? Because they want to know how you will promote their products. Sometimes, even if you own a website, advertizer’s rejects your application if your website is not a good fit for their brand.
But don’t worry, Amazon has an awesome affiliate program. It is pretty easy to sign up for their affiliate program. You’ll find the option to sign up as an affiliate on their site.
Next, choose the products to you want to promote. Once you decide which project you want to promote then generate its unique affiliate URL and then start promoting it on WhatsApp!
You may share the link directly with your contacts, share them on relevant groups etc.
Just like we did in the first method, make it sure that a catchy and informative description is also provided along with the link. Point out details like- product description, brand, discount available etc.
Try to promote stuff that comes with huge discounts! They usually tend to convert well and thus will help you earn commission!
Try to find best deals on awesome products and promote it! People usually look for discounts, sale deals etc. Deliver it to them and you’ll have a better chance of landing a sale!

#3 Using PPD networks
PPD stands for Pay Per Download. Basically, PPD sites (such as CleanFiles, FileIce etc) allows users to host files on servers. Users then promote those files, using custom links.
When someone clicks on that link to get the file, system will ask them to go through a survey/task before they can download the file!
The publisher get money when user completes the survey and downloads the file successfully. This is the working method of PPD networks.
So, how to start? First of all, find a good PPD network (FileIce, CleanFiles etc). Register and upload a good file, a file that people are willing to download at any cost.
Obtain the download URL and start promoting it on WhatsApp. Share it directly with your contacts, on relevant WhatsApp groups etc.
If the file is good enough and if you share it with the right audience, you will get some downloads and thus money! The commission differs from country to country. For example, for clicks and downloads from countries such as USA, Norway, Denmark, Germany etc, the payout may be as high as 50$!
Generally, in the case of downloads at developed countries, the payout is good. While in the case of downloads at developing countries, the payout is average or low!
In all the three methods, I mentioned about sharing of links in appropriate, relevant groups. But what if you don’t have targeted WhatsApp group with enough members in it? Or what if you don’t have enough targeted audience in your WhatsApp contact list?
In such cases, build a WhatsApp group from scratch! There is an easy way to start from Facebook!
Go to Facebook and check out groups that you have the interest in. For example- funny images groups. Become member over there. Open discussion regarding your plan to start a WhatsApp group related to the same theme as that of the Facebook group. Request people to drop their phone numbers and add them to the group!
In this way, you may create a group/improve your WhatsApp contacts list fast. Also, you will be having targeted audience too, which is easy to convert and help you make money using WhatsApp!
