Live Chat with your readers

18 Oct

Do you have a chat room on your website or internet tv channel? If not, you should consider the benefits of communicating in real time with a chat room on your website. When used properly, it is a great way for ministries and businesses to speak to clients, members or fans instantly. It is one of the fastest ways to engage your audience and create a buzz about your business or event.

What are chat rooms?

Chat rooms are an online tool where users can sign up and join a room with others in their community to discuss a multitude of topics. Imagine a party online where an unlimited amount of people can participate. Most chat rooms tell you how many people are participating and what the comments are for each user. Participants can read and write comments and/or visit other rooms to discuss other topics. They can also watch live streaming events, recorded video, read text and so much more which keeps people on your site and makes their online experience positive.

How does it work?

There are several free or inexpensive chat room providers out there that have embeddable iframes that can be added to any website or internet tv channel. My personal favorites are Meebo or Chatroll but there are dozens of others out there.

Why chat live?

  • Host live interviews
  • Showcase product launches or webinars
  • Accept comments or questions during live events
  • Communicate with your audience
  • Set up private chats to speak with individuals directly
  • Get instant feedback
  • Create a buzz online

Do you have something exciting to share with others? Do you have an audience that wants to hear from you? A chat room may be the right fit for you and your company.
