Make Your WhatsApp Groups Engaging & Interactive
WhatsApp groups can be very effective for hosting training, webinar, or just group discussions.
And It’s easy to think that they’re a no-brainer.
You know, add people, name the group, post your messages and keep it moving.
But no. It can get messy if not properly handled.
You need to be intentional if you would have an engaging and functional WhatsApp group.
Let’s look at some tips below:
Notify participants before adding them to the WhatsApp group.
Set ground rules & expectations. It sets the tone of engagement and creates an atmosphere of respect.
Schedule discussions. If you want people to engage, give them time to put it on their calendars.
Schedule times when the chat will be open for everyone.
When it’s time for a training session, or on days the group isn’t active, set admin rules to disable participants from sending messages.
Also, set admin rules for who can change the group info; group name, profile picture, and description.
Encourage participants to use the reply feature when discussing. So messages don’t get lost in between, and it’s easier to follow the message trail.
Encourage participants to respond to messages they have read. There’s now an emoji reaction feature, so they don’t have to type a response every time except it is necessary.
Now go forth and create those WhatsApp groups with confidence.
