Introducing Willu

In our simplest form, we are an engagement platform built on hashtags. We know engagement has come to mean a lot of different things, but however you define it, all types of engagement share a few basic elements: receptivity and transmission. Here’s where willu comes in.

For your prospects, fans, colleagues, or donors to take a desired action, first you have to tell them how. They must be willing to receive your message. Then they need to accept that message through all the noise and clutter fighting for their attention.

With us you can send text messages to everyone who has opted in to engage with you, using a hashtag.

All you need is a mobile number to get started.  Reserve a hashtag in our app using your business name, blog title, social media handle or whatever is relevant. Share it across social media, email, printed materials, etc. SMS users simply text your hashtag to a short code and  opt-in to receive messages from you as a trusted source. You can share updates, promotions, alerts - whatever is important to you. You can send links to drive traffic to your website, blog, YouTube channel, etc.

SMS has a 98% open rate, so your messages will almost always be seen. Hashtags have been shown to boost engagement at least 12%. Combined with our opt-in verification layer, willu provides the best way to transmit communication to the most receptive audience.

Whether you’re a realtor or an Instagram influencer, a doctor or a party promoter, a customer support leader or a school principal, we know you need a better way to reach, notify and interact with your community. Our platform is incredibly versatile, helping you drive a host of different behaviors by focusing on a single goal. For all the ways you want to drive engagement, it starts with willu.
