  </a>
</div> 

From above HTML code replace "0000000000000" with your WhatsApp number. And the Assalamualaikum text with your custom text. make sure to use country code before your WhatsApp number.

Use the HTML code where you want to show the widget. Don't use this on your home page if you have a Blog website. It will look awkward having a WhatsApp widget on home  page. But if you have a portfolio website then it will be very useful. Depending on use this widget will be very helpful.

Conclusion 

Always staying connected with customers and sending them update about your new products as key point of business. But you have to spend money for marketing app. But with WhatsApp you get your clients contact information and get to contact them directly rather than sending E-mail. But some  people say it evade their personal privacy by sharing their contact number. But by using business account I think it's really very useful and helpful.
