Hi, welcome to utilitarian blog. In this tutorial I will be showing you how you can add a custom whatsApp button to your blogger website.

Do you know that without the button on your site,  visitor will find it very difficult to contact you easily.
In some-Cases when you use your blog to promote your business,  you will surly need this button,  so you must have known that using WhatsApp Business will allow your business to get in touch with more than 1.5 billion people around the world in less period of time, but the fact is that, to reach these potential customers that you need,   one must take advantage of every available channel to motivate those potential customers, to let them contact your business through WhatsApp chat. 
 If you keep in mind that currently mobile devices generate almost half of your blog’s traffic, your blog can be one of the best sources of online interactions. 
For instance if you are into a business that involves interaction with your customers, like selling or distribution of services like,  data selling or e-book distribution,  you will like your visitors to chat you up for a better interaction. So I want to share a simple and attractive way to put a click to chat button on your website, this will allow your visitors to contact you with a single click. To do this, you must have access to your website’s code, and basic knowledge of web programming or simply look for a programmer to help you do this. 

An example of  this is  just like the one on this page, when you click on the whatsApp icon, it will direct your visitor/customer to the page where they can connect with you directly on whatsApp using the number you have provided.
