Tips for Using Telegram

If you’re an ICO provider or broker, there are many dos and don’ts when it comes to Telegram. The good news is following proper etiquette is straightforward.

Avoid being overly promotional

Telegram provides a great avenue to communicate to a wider audience. Naturally, this will give your token raise more exposure. This alone should be sufficient in joining the platform. However, you shouldn’t treat Telegram like an ad portal.

People join cryptocurrency communities because they want real insights about the market. ICO providers should therefore facilitate discussion without providing a commercial for their token raise.

Consider feedback from users

This gives your brand important data to help advance your business model and improve customer retention skills. To receive feedback, all you need to do is ask the customer via the messaging app. The rest is history.

Know your subject matter 

The person or persons chairing your Telegram profile should know a thing or two about the subject matter. This is especially true in the cryptocurrency space, which is budding with savvy investors who want real answers without the fluff. Having the right subject matter expert present is important when fielding questions from your group or sparking a discussion around one of your product features.

Leverage Channel

One of Telegram’s most defining features is Channel, which improves the way businesses can send messages to multiple users via permanent URL. This list can be scaled up as much as possible, as there are no limits on size. That’s a major improvement over the previous limit of 1,000 contacts.


To access the Channel, users need to have the permanent URL. When your company sends out the link, it can keep track of how many people viewed the message or how often it is forwarded to other members outside of the Channel.

Clearly, Telegram offers unique benefits to ICOs, brokers and other crypto-based companies looking to grow their profile. Aa a completely free service, Telegram has no barriers to entry. That’s probably one of the reasons why it is growing at such a torrid pace.
