Live chat is faster and the best way for your customers to talk to you. Live chat provides a far better experience than the contact forms or communicating through emails. In this post, we will see how you can add a live chat to Weebly websites.

Weebly is a free website builder that allows you to build your own websites quickly and with ease. It is amongst the most popular CMS (Content Management System) platforms out there. Weebly currently powers more than a million websites worldwide with more than 625,000 paid subscribers.

Given that live chat is now as important as analytics on your website, it is important to have a simple way to add live chat to Weebly websites. Live chat advantages include proactive outreach, increased sales, faster problem resolution, and improved customer service.

Let’s get started.
