If you’re using WordPress as a platform for your business site, it’s good to have a medium for your potential client to get in touch with you and get feedback as soon as possible. While contact form has been a standard for a medium of communication between you and your clients, it usually takes so much time to respond and get feedback from each other. This long waiting time isn’t good for your business. Is there any better way to contact you than a contact form?
Yes, there is – a live chat.
If you’ve seen a big site such as Hostgator or other big companies in hosting industry, you might notice that they provide a live chat support for all visitors. I myself have used it a couple of times to ask simple questions like “Do your company accept Paypal?” and “Is there any discount for renewal?” and I find it very useful and fast to get feedback.
