WhatsApp broadcast ideas and templates for F&B ecommerce stores

Before you start sending out any broadcast message, remember you should have the customers’ opt-ins. Customers should have signed up for your WhatsApp updates. And you can use a WhatsApp Broadcast API solutions provider – Interakt – to build your list. Then, it’s all about keeping your broadcast campaigns ready. 

1. New opt-in

It’s a must to have opt-ins, meaning customers’ permission to be able to send WhatsApp messages to them. Customers would either opt-in when they make their first purchase from your site or simply sign up for updates. You should have a welcome or thank you campaign ready. 

Example 1

Hey Patrick,

We’re glad you’ve joined us on WhatsApp. We’ll be sending you updates on new product launches, discounts, updates on your orders, recipes, and more. Stay tuned!

Example 2

Hello Jeena,

We’ll be sending you updates on sales, discounts, new products, recipes, and more. 

In the meantime, checkout our seasonal section for this Summer’s best deals – fresh fruit crush, mango magic, mango cake home baking kit, and fruit-based goodies for kids.

2. New product launch

The food and beverage industry is extremely competitive with new products launched almost every day! To keep your products section up to date, you’d be adding new products to your site. And that’s when you can use WhatsApp broadcasts to boost sales.

Example 1

Hiya Ben!

3. Abandoned cart recovery

More than half the shoppers on online stores end up abandoning carts. It’s a common occurrence and that’s where WhatsApp broadcast campaigns come handy. And when abandoned cart recovery WhatsApp messages are personalized, they work even better. Let’s look at some templates.

Example 1

It seems you’ve forgotten some items in your cart, Mary.

Would you like to complete the purchase now? There’s a 10% discount running across the site today.

Go to cart I Buy now

Example 2

4. Sale/ discount

Food and beverage are perishable items with a short shelf life. That’s why it helps to run discounts and sales to make sure your products sell out in time before the expiry date. Here are a few WhatsApp broadcast marketing ideas to get you started.

Example 1

Hey Mia,

It’s your favorite time of the year – YummyFoods month-long annual sale is now live!

We have a specially curated sale section we think you’ll love.

5. Seasonal goodies

Seasonal food and beverages are popular among consumers. They want to make the most of the season, and so do food and beverage ecommerce stores. Here’s how you can run WhatsApp broadcast campaigns to promote seasonal goodies.

Example 1

It’s time for a berrylicious treat, Mayson!

If you haven’t yet tried our seasonal berry cakes, cookies, and beverages, you’re missing out on something berry yum.

6. Restock notifications

Food and beverage items have a short shelf life and may get sold out. Moreover, if items don’t get sold until their expiry date, you have to take them off your inventory. And restocking them might take some time. Try these broadcast messages.

Example 1

Hola Jerome!

It’s here! The Strawberry Vanilla Crush mix that was out of stock is now restocked.

But the weather’s hot and sultry and it’s selling out fast. 

Should we reserve your favorite drink mix for you?

Yes, reserve I Buy now

7. Content promotion

One of the best ways for food and beverage brands to engage customers is by sharing informative and educational content such as recipes, blogs, etc. And to promote the content, what better than WhatsApp broadcast campaigns?

Example 1

Hey Monica,

Customers have many options of ecommerce stores to buy from. And hence, it’s possible that at times they might stop visiting your store. That is why you need to re-engage customers from time-to-time. Here’s how to do it.

Example 1


We haven’t seen you for a while. You’re missing out on all the new sweet treats we’ve added on FunFoods — cookies, pastries, and sweets.
