6 Firebrand Approaches To Generating Contacts For BBM & Whatsapp

To be successful in any form of business whether online or offline, it is always advisable for every serious businessman to endeavour to raise as many contacts as possible. This principle also applies to our course of study – Generating Contacts For BBM & Whatsapp. Presently,
I have about 1,926 followers or contacts on my BBM. Yet there are some people
with 2000, 3000, and even 5000 contacts who are at a loss as to how they can leverage
on this. Some people might claim they cherish their privacy by having just a
handful of BBM contacts. That is understandable! However if you really hope to
make real money from BB, Android and Whatsapp, you need a large followership.
Twitter Handle:
My initial twitter handle read “@CityPulse_28B732O8’’
It wasn’t carved out by mistake. It was a deliberate attempt to get the
attention of prospective contacts. At least 15 percent of my contacts came from
there before I switched pins to my current one.
This is one of the interesting broadcasts you will get from
time-to-time. All it requires is for you to add your BB Pin and what you do and
rebroadcast. When you have a generous number of contacts, you can equally
kick-start similar PIN TRAIN.
Broadcast Of Pins By Friends:
It is not unusual to see things like ‘’Add
Johnson Silly. He just lost all his contacts.” Some of these BB Pin broadcast referral
are genuine while others are just floated to get more contacts for the owners.

Attachment To posts:
It is not uncommon to see people attach blackberry pin
on every post sent from their blogs, facebook or twitter account. This is a
very good means to generate contacts who could turn out to be prospective
buyers of whatever you are offering, whether goods or services.
On Diverse Fora:
Being interactive on social media and fora like Citypulse,
Nairaland, lindaikeji, 9jaChurch etc is always a plus any day. Times without
number, I have been privileged to bump into some articles, comments and opinions
I left behind on some notable fora and websites in the last 14 years. Therefore
it is advisable to endeavour to leave your signature (name & BB Pin) after
spending quality time reading and commenting on any blog or site. It is a good
way to generate blackberry contacts if you are genuinely interested in content
or info marketing, BB marketing broadcast or any online business.
Create A
Customised DP:
It is no longer news that most people idly copy (or steal in
the right sense of the word) their contacts display pictures (DP) from
time-to-time. Unknown to them, some other people too would steal from them
& either used on their profile or post them on Twitter, Facebook or Blog.
This is the reason some shrewd business-minded fellows tend to imprint their BB
Pin either at the bottom or at the tip of each picture. With that done, when
the picture goes viral, they are bound to start receiving prospective BB
Getting Whatsapp friends is a more direct approach. It is a
cumulative of all the people on your phone comprising friends, relatives,
colleagues, clients, father, mother, uncles, aunts, in-laws (both people you
term serious & unserious alike).
What is Whatsapp Messenger?
WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform instant messaging
subscription service for smartphones and selected feature phones that uses the
internet for communication. In addition to text messaging, users can send each
other images, videos and audio media messages as well as their location using
integrated mapping features.
WhatsApp was founded in 2009 by US citizens Brian Acton and
Jan Koum (also the CEO), both former employees of Yahoo!, and is based in
Mountain View, California. On February 19, 2014, Facebook officially announced its
acquisition of WhatsApp for a whooping US$19 billion (can you beat that?).
As of 22 April 2014, WhatsApp had over 500 million monthly
active users in the world and 14.7 million fans in Nigeria, according to
Whatsapp Facebook Page Statistics.

Ways to generate
contacts for Whatsapp
Just as analysed in the case of blackberry messenger above,
the same principle applies when it comes to generating contacts except one –
All the contacts of people you saved or already have logged on your phone automatically becomes
your whatsapp contacts.
