How to Earn Money on WhatsApp in Ghana

WhatsApp used to be one of the most private communication spaces globally. Still, it has now merged with Facebook, allowing users a bigger audience.

Initially, you are limited to your immediate or close friends viewing your status. Still, you can now link your status to Facebook and have more people see what you post.

Do you know what that means? Your ecommerce is about to boom for you to make some cool cash.


Believe it or not, people pay so much attention to your status, even people you are not very close to.

It all depends on the kind of things you want the world to see. Is it intriguing? Does it provoke the thoughts of people? Or will it attract them to patronize your business? That is if it is an advertisement you decide to take on. You can make money on WhatsApp easily. This is how;

The only through which you can make money on WhatsApp is through marketing and advertisement. You can either advertise other people’s products or promote yours for commissions.

To do this, you will need to build a particular social media presence that surpasses what you had before you decided to take on ecommerce.

Many people need to have your number saved on their phone and theirs on yours, and with the presence you get on Facebook, you are one way ahead.
You can have about five hundred to nine hundred people viewing your WhatsApp status.

Once you have done this, you can start receiving advertisement deals from your friends, family, and even people you don’t know.
You will not be advertising for free; you have about three options regarding payment.

One of them is to receive payment before putting any product on your status. Whether someone hits you up to buy the product, you have already received payment.

The second thing is to add your commission to the sale price. If the product is GHS20, you can tell anyone buying it that it costs GHS25; this GHS5 is your commission.

But this has to be a mutual agreement between you and the person you are advertising the product for.

The third option is to receive a percentage of the number of products you can sell at the end of the week, month, or even days. The first and second options are encouraged because of thieves and fraudsters.

Another way to make money on WhatsApp is to advertise your own products and services.

If you have a particular skill or craft, you can make some cool cash by advertising them on the social media.

People make bead bags and sell them on WhatsApp, others sell second-hand clothing, and you can build a small freelance writing firm and advertise on WhatsApp.

Whatever you are good at, you can get people to patronize you once you perfect it and put it out there for them to see.

You can also make money on WhatsApp through affiliate marketing. With affiliate marketing, all you need to do is a post or send a link to a product from a website to people on WhatsApp. You get a commission if anyone actually buys a product using the link you send.

Even though it feels like a stretch, if your targeted audience receives the link, they might follow, and who knows? Jumia affiliate programs are one of such. You can give it a try.

WhatsAd is a Ghanaian digital marketing company developed to help users make money through their status by displaying ads.

At the end of the day, when you get even 50 people to view your advertisement, you get paid GHS 0.50 for each of those ads.

You can only withdraw your money when you reach a threshold on GHS5. WhatAd is on Google play store and Apple app store.
