If you haven’t heard the news yet, Facebook announced the ability to load Facebook Messenger onto your site so people can message you directly. This is exciting news! Okay, its exciting news for nerds like me.
Is it worth doing? Absolutely. Give people more options to easily contact you, and it can’t hurt. I doubt it will lead to any significant differences with your site, but considering it’s free, why not? Even if it gets you one new deal, it’s worth the couple minutes to set up.
Let’s get started!
Firstly, you’ll want to go to your business page and click Page Settings.
- Once in Page Settings click Messaging
- In the ‘Add Messenger to your website’ section, click the ‘Get Started’ Button.
The setup tool provides a simple UI for customizing the greeting message, theme colour, displayed response time, and setting the whitelisted domains for the plugin.
On completion, the setup tool automatically generates the code snippets that you can copy/paste to include the Facebook Chat Plugin on your webpage.
Get in touch HERE if you get any additional leads from doing this! We’d love to hear from you.
