In today’s digital landscape, businesses need efficient tools to interact seamlessly with their customers. The web chat widget is a ubiquitous feature seen on many websites. However, there’s a significant limitation in most conventional widgets: customers must remain on the website for real-time communication. As small business owners juggle multiple responsibilities, real-time response becomes challenging. Our solution offers a unique approach to this problem.
1. The Unique Web Chat Widget Approach
- Traditional Limitations:
- The conventional widgets require both parties to be present in real time.
- Small business owners often find it difficult to respond immediately.
- Our Widget’s Advantage:
- Our widget does more than just look like a chat. When users input their details, the information is collected rather than initiating a live chat.
- It captures the user’s name, phone number, email, and message.
- Instead of relying on real-time website chat, users receive responses directly to their cell phones, promoting increased interaction.
2. Setting Up The Web Chat Widget
- Accessing the Launch Pad: Head to your settings and navigate to the launch pad. The widget settings are not located in the general settings but specifically on the launch pad.
- Website Integration:
- Click on the web chat widget option.
- Input your website URL.
- WordPress Users:
- Our platform has a specific plugin for WordPress users. If your site runs on WordPress, you’ll be prompted to install the plugin.
- Follow the on-screen instructions for a smooth installation.
- Other CMS Users:
- If you utilize another Content Management System (CMS) like Shopify or Squarespace, there are distinct pathways to integrate the widget. The system will provide the appropriate steps based on your CMS.
- Customizing the Widget:
- Once installed, you can choose the color, theme, and other visual aspects of the widget to align with your website’s aesthetics.
3. Communication Flow
- When a user interacts with the widget, their details are captured.
- You will receive the message in your conversations.
- Respond to users directly at your convenience. Responses are relayed to the user’s cell phone, ensuring they don’t have to wait on the website.
