How to Send Campaigns from my trial sandbox number?
- Login to cloud.unifonic.com
- From the main menu select the ‘Campaigns’ option.
- Click the Start New Campaign button and select WhatsApp.
Type a unique Campaign name then select WhatsApp Business Number which will send out your campaign.
Click the NEXT button to proceed.
If you need additional information or details before initiating your campaign, save your campaign as a Draft at any step so you can return later when ready to resume creating and launching your campaign.
- Select intended recipients by adding them from an existing list
(Predefined numbers during sandbox activation and configuration)
- Upon choosing recipients, click the NEXT button to proceed
IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT CAMPAIGN RECIPIENT NUMBERS!
Because you are using a WhatsApp Sandbox trial number, you cannot send the campaign to any external recipients outside the numbers assigned to your account. Select the numbers from your trial numbers list (option available during activating and configuring the sandbox number) as campaigns can only be sent to those particular numbers.
If you want to edit or change something from the previous step without losing the configurations, you can always click on the PREVIOUS button to go back by one step, and NEXT to progress to the next step.
Upon proceeding to the next step of the Campaign Wizard, you shall reach - Message Details, where you can select a pre-defined template from a list of available trial templates that you can use to experiment.
- Select a Message Template and choose the desired Language from the options available.
Once you selected a language a message preview will be shown. The message preview is how your customer can see your message on their device (this does not represent the exact display of the customer's mobile, but only an approximate preview).
If there are any variables available in the message, you need to map the variables with the appropriate values. To know more about variables see Message variables
For header variables with media (image, video or PDF), you need to either provide a public media URL or you can directly upload the file. To know more about the file upload feature see Upload file feature
If you want to insert tracking URLs using uLink, configure uLink. To know more about uLink see uLink Integration
PROCEED WITH CAUTION
Before mapping the template variables, we strongly recommend you go carefully go through the above steps and check out the links provided as well as the online Help Guide available in the User Interface.
- Click on NEXT button to reach the Campaign Preview
Here you can review your campaign and confirm all details, templates, recipients, etc are correct and that there are no missing requirements. After that, you can Schedule the campaign for a future date and time or Initiate the campaign right away.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING REGULATORY COMPLIANCE
According to the CITC regulations and other regulating authorities, you cannot send a promotional campaign between 10 PM - 7 AM. Accordingly, scheduling and initiating campaigns within this time window is not feasible and will be blocked.
Once your campaign is initiated and on its way to your customers, all messages will be sent and instantly tracked from the Reporting Dashboard.
