6. Broadcast WA Personal Messages to Group Chats! 📣

Now, you can send WA Personal messages to group chats!

But before you start broadcasting messages, you’ll need to create a contact for the group.

To do this, make sure the WA Personal device is in the group chat and the Inbox is enabled in the WA Personal Setup module. When someone in the group sends a message, a ticket will be created in the Inbox module. Then, click on the “Add Contact” button that is located in the right column to create the contact.

Once the contact is created, you can proceed to create the broadcast as usual then add the contact as the audience.

*Note: Remember not to make changes or edit the WA Personal Group ID as it may cause the message broadcasting to be unsuccessful. 🚀

7. Add Delay to Your WA Personal Campaign Messages! ⏰

This means you can schedule a pause between messages being sent out, allowing for a more spaced-out and natural flow of communication with your contacts.

For example, if you’re sending multiple messages in a sequence but want to ensure they’re not all delivered at once, you can specify the delay duration in each message.

Don’t worry, if you prefer to send messages instantly without any delay, you can remain the delay duration at 0 seconds.
