We have started a new WhatsApp beta deal alert notification service, if you would like to join please click this link here, send the pre-filled message, and follow the sign up instructions. Please allow at least 24 hours until you start receiving the new notifications.This does not replace instant twitter alerts. You will receive a roundup of deals every few hours and hopefully hot deals as soon as they come out. This system is still in beta testing. We are also testing statuses on WhatsApp to be posted as soon as deals go live.
THIS WILL NOT REPLACE instant alerts of all deals by signing up on Twitter for SMS messages or push notifications from the Twitter app. You can learn how to receive instant text message notifications here.
Detailed sign up instructions:
Signing up is simple.
2. Save the number to your contacts and then send the pre-filled message. For example you can save it as DansDeals Notifications Beta.
On Android phones to save the contact simply click the “Add” button highlighted below, on Apple phones you must add the contact by clicking on the phone number and selecting “Create New Contact”.
First click on the phone number:
Then add the contact to your phone:
If you do not save this number as a contact you will not receive messages.
Once that is complete you can send the pre-filled message. Please allow at least 24 hours until you start receiving the new notifications.
We would love your feedback, you can leave a comment on this post with your thoughts on the sign up process and deal format you will be receiving. We will be changing how often alerts go out, how many deals will be included in each alert, etc.
This will be a deals roundup a few times a day and will hopefully be able to send out all hot deals as they come up, so don’t unsubscribe from any other DansDeals alerts you may already have in place.
We would love to send out all deals with their own message as soon as they go live, but unfortunately WhatsApp limits that capability. It’s challenging to find a Whatsapp solution that will be able to handle tens of thousands of subscribers, so if you have any better Whatsapp solutions please email JJ at firstname.lastname@example.org
