Nowadays, a professional email signature often includes links to social networks such as Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter. If you use WhatsApp for your business, you might also want to include a WhatsApp link in your email signature. If the mail recipient clicks or taps on it, a WhatsApp chat opens automatically and can contact you directly via message.
WhatsApp Business and the normal WhatsApp Messenger have a corresponding function for this and forward link requests via an interface (API) from the web browser to the Messenger. The chat message opens automatically there, even if both contacts have not yet exchanged phone numbers.
You can even have a first message sent automatically at the beginning of the WhatsApp chat started with an e-mail signature. In this way, you can see right away that the new request comes from the email signature.
Since you also share your WhatsApp contact and your private phone number publicly with a WhatsApp link in the e-mail signature, you should probably only use the function with WhatsApp Business.
The following steps show how you can insert the WhatsApp link into your email signature.
You can also use the link function of WhatsApp for messages to yourself and use WhatsApp as a notepad.
