1. How to create the link
The first step to putting the WhatsApp link on Instagram is his creation. Here we will describe how to do this simply so anyone can do this process.
The first option is to use the link below to create your own, swapping the zeros for your mobile number and correcting the DDD for yours. In this case, it is the So Paulo capital, (11). Remember that the numbers at the beginning are necessary and represent which country the number. For Brazil, the first two numbers will always be 55.
Another simpler way to do this using any of the many WhatsApp link generators that are available. Let's talk about three of them: the one created by digital marketing company Marketex, the one developed by Dinamiza and Whats.link.
For creating the link on the Marketex platform, the process is very simple. Just enter your mobile number and leave an optional message, as you can see in the video below.
The optional message will appear in the message bar of anyone placing the link and sent by you. As shown on the video, you can post a custom message so you know the user came from Instagram.
This way, you can analyze the metrics of how many people requested care from the social network.
In the second, it is necessary to enter the number with DDD and Brazil area code, the (55) mentioned above. In addition, it also allows the addition of some text message, so that when users click on the link they send it automatically.

Finally, it is recommended that you shorten the final link in order to improve aesthetics. To do this, use some link shortener, such as TinyURL. Through it, you not only shorten the URL, but also customize how it gets shortened.
