WhatsApp broadcast ideas and templates for fashion and apparel stores
Before you start browsing through the templates below, please remember that to set up WhatsApp broadcasts, you will need a WhatsApp Business API solution provider like Interakt. If you already have an account, let’s take a look at some of the ideas:
1. New opt-in
Once you get a consumer to opt-in to your WhatsApp – be it via making a purchase or simply subscribing through one of your campaigns, make sure you have a broadcast campaign ready to keep them engaged.

Let’s say a shopper checked out a digital watch on your site for a long time but didn’t buy it. You could prompt them to buy that watch or offer them better options. That’s what upselling is all about – to offer something of more value to customers.
The digital watch you liked is still available. And we have some better options too, which we think you might like.
