WhatSapp is for instant messaging which is the only use and function as of now, it has no single ADs display like 2go and other messengers so the question comes like How does whatsapp really make money or generate their own revenue since we all know that the sole aim of every online entrepreneur is income but nothing else.
This is how Whatsapp makes its living a.k.a(also known as) revenue….even without placing any Advertisement.
Whatsapp enables it’s user to send text messages, images, video and audio media to other users. The said service is available on iOS, android, Symbian, blackberry OS and windows platforms. Whatsapp is earning its revenue through two different ways:
1- Subscription Fee: Whatsapp allows it’s user to enjoy the services for free for first year. However, after that it charges $0.99 for continued service. But till date, I have not heard of a single person who has paid for this service. Interestingly, Whatsapp tends to extend the free service period every time a user reaches close to the expiry date. So this method of revenue generation that seems like the only visible revenue generation scheme is actually not generating the revenue.
2-Data Base Management:Data base is the admin management section where all the information gathered are stored and information’s here can be deleted , edited, extracted or tempered with by the admin in any method. According to speculation, the revenue generation for Whatsapp is primarily through database management. All the conversations on Whatsapp are backed up on Whatsapp servers constantly.
Our conversations reflect our interests, likes, dislikes and majorly depicts our preferences. This information is invaluable to big firms where relevant tailor made products can be offered after data sorting.
Let’s take a deeper look into this! Whatsapp users have been ever increasing since launch currently numbering out users on any other competitor. Given such high number of users, the number of messages exchanged per day is also incredibly high in case of Whatsapp- peaking as high as 11 billion. With such extensive information available on Whatsapp backups, the big companies are willing to pay handsome amounts for information extraction. This data management scheme is merely a speculation.
As evident, Whatsapp is not involved in ad marketing. Any Whatsapp user can vouch for the fact that it does not support advertisements.The owner of Whatsapp Messenger Jan Koum clearly states that Whatsapp is meant for instant messaging and forcing advertisements would disrupt the sole meaning of Whatsapp and instant messaging. There is no way to justify the data management ideology, but then there is no other justified revenue model as well in the store.
Are you among those who imagined things like whatSapp makes money from the recharge cards and MB we uses on daily basis ? then you should keep of such though because no website or app on earth make money from subscriptions and data usages rather the service providers are the only one to benefit that section.
Do you think Whatsapp Has other means of earning? if yes then you are free to drop your view here it will be of great help on our next update.
