Dos and Don’ts:
- Important: Do NOT send messages which get you a report. As long as you don’t get reports from users who you sent a message, your account will be mostly fine.
- Having real content, a survey that the person agreed with is different than a marketing message on a Saturday night.
- Send messages written in different ways, you could make a script that places spacebars randomly on your string AND includes the person’s (first) name
- Never use fixed times, always go for sending the first message, wait a random time between 30 ~ and 60 seconds, and then send the second message
- Always try to group contacts by their area code, WhatsApp expects a regular person to talk mostly with contacts that are within the same area of your phone number.
- Have a profile picture, this is not related to WhatsApp Bots Catcher® but sending a new message to someone not having a picture/name/status will elevate your chances of being manually tagged as spam.
- Send “seen” confirmation to messages or disable it on WhatsApp
- Avoid sending links that were previously marked as spam on WhatsApp or non-HTTPS. A URL shortener is a good idea
- IMPORTANT: It’s really bad if you send messages 24/7 without giving it some time to wait. Random delays between messages are not enough, send a reasonable amount of messages keeping in mind your conversion rate, For example: for one hour send a maximum of 4 messages per contact that have replied to your message, and stop sending messages for one hour, then start again. Again, don’t send messages without stopping for a while between every “package”
- Send only one short message when starting a conversation, one should not send long texts or multiple messages without the user’s consenting
- Avoid prefixes for messages
Have in mind:
- For everyone you send a message that doesn’t have your number on their contact list asked if it’s spam, being tagged as spam a few times (5 – 10) will get you banned
- WhatsApp records every movement you do, you can even check the logs when sending simple support email, it contains all kinds of information, this said: act as human as possible
- Try to engage in conversations, as long as you send a message and the person doesn’t automatically block you it’ll be quite okay. People constantly talking to you and adding you to their contact list will make your number stronger against a ban
- Think about that like a points system, you start with zero points (negative if your device was previously blacklisted), if you reach below zero you are out, if you engage in conversations you get a point, if you are tagged as spam you lose some points, if you are blocked you may lose more points
- Finally, If your content is spam, it doesn’t matter if you are using a broadcast list, group, or direct contact, you will still be banned
