which live chat software works well and why?
We actually tried out a number of different chat software before we ran across the one we’re currently using, Freshchat. The signup process was quick and easy. Literally just dropped our email address in the box. No name, address, phone, nor credit card information was required to sign up. Plus, they offer a free trial to test it out. After verifying our email address and logging in, we were able to start tinkering with the system. The user interface is very simple to use and understand. All we had to do was dive into the settings, make it match our website with our branding, embed the code, and set up the 4 different department channels. So after spending about 20 minutes to sign up, set up, and test, we now have a fully-functional chat system where you can reach out to us.
Why you should also have a live chat system
Having live chat on your website can transform your business in a number of ways. First of all, it can help increase trust and loyalty from your site visitors and customers. If you have a live chat system in place and your visitor has a question about your product/service, they will have more peace-of-mind knowing that someone is available to chat. The problem with phone support could be long hold times before being able to speak with someone. The problem with email is that a visitor knows it could be hours or even days before getting an email response. You can defeat both of those having a live chat feature available for your visitors. Even subconsciously, just knowing that the chat is there, it has proven to increase a website’s conversion rate. According to Neil Patel, simply having live chat enabled on your website, you can have up to a 45% increase in your conversion rate. Think about it like this… Your visitors should have little to no wait time and get the direct, personal answers to make a buying decision. It’s a no-brainer.
How to set up the
wordpress plugin with mobile app on your website
First, go sign up for your free account at Freshchat. You can use the free trial to try out one of their paid plans with the ability to downgrade to the free one (unless you really dig the paid plans) before the trial ends. We currently have the “Blossom” plan with 3 members, mainly so that we can utilize the “business hours” feature. But even the free plan is phenomenal.
Next, click on the settings tab and then the web messenger button to get the HTML code that you need to copy and paste into your website. If we are your website developer, we’ll happily integrate the chat system for you, just shoot us a message! Once your code is installed, in the same settings, click “customize appearance” to change the colors, background, and widget size.
Boom, your chat system is live. SUPER simple, right?
Now, you have the ability to add “Message Channels” from the settings tab if you’d like. Just click “Add Channel”, give it a name and welcome message, then drag an icon on the upload image section. Vuala, you have channels.
What happens if I get stuck and need help with my live chat system?
Once you log in to your Freshchat dashboard, there is a chat widget in the bottom right corner where you can chat with someone over there at Freshchat.
Setting up your chat plugin yourselfLike we mentioned, setting up Freshchat is ridiculously easy and it’s free. After you’ve signed up, embed your code, change your colors, then install the mobile app.
