How To Use WhatsApp For Christmas Greetings

It is the most wonderful time of the year! 

Holidays can also mean a lot of opportunities for businesses. Engaging with customers through personalized messages and greetings can establish more loyal brand trust and relationships. Ad relevance can also be impactful riding through the season.

That’s why in this guide, we will show you how to use WhatsApp for holiday greetings.

Merrier Season With rocketsend.io

Using rocketsend.io Chrome extension, you can customize messages tailored-fit to your customers. With its rich message sending features, aside from sending holiday greetings, you can also use WhatsApp in sending event invitations and market new product or service offerings.

All you need is the rocketsend.io Chrome extension installed on your Chrome browser. Just head to rocketsend.io and click the Install Chrome Extension button.

Next step, we will be organizing the contact list in CSV format. In this step, you can either use Google Sheet or Microsoft Excel whichever is more convenient to you.

For this example, we will be organizing the contact list in Google Sheets. Go to sheets.google.com and create a new blank spreadsheet.

The screenshot above shows Google Sheets where you can create a document.

Create the columns for Name and Phone and don’t forget to include the area code of the phone number. To avoid the automatic formatting of Google Sheets, append the number with apostrophe so the area code will be rendered properly.

The screenshot above shows the excel sheet.

If the information is complete, click File > Download > Comma Separated Values (.csv) to download the contact list in CSV format.

The screenshot above shows how you can save.

Now that we have the file, it is now time for us to send the message to our customers.

For this example, we will be using this message template:

“Hi [NAME]! We want to THANK YOU for sharing this great year with us. Happy Holidays and we hope you enjoy this season with your family and friends! - Smiles Dental Clinic”

And this sample poster for a more appealing holiday greeting.

Go to web.whatsapp.com and click the Sender button on the upper left side of the screen. This will open the rocketsend.io pane on the right side of the page.
