How to Set up Live Chat Announcements


ProProfs Live Chat allows you to notify visitors about upcoming products, features, and service updates. Since announcements can be displayed on every web page that has Chat integrated into it, announcements help reach a wider audience than a website's notification page. It greatly improves customer service and can reduce customer tickets. Announcements can also be used to redirect users to newly created or updated self-help articles.


Benefits of Live Chat Announcements:

  • Announce a sale, discounts, new products, features, etc.
  • Capture visitors' interest with engaging announcements
  • Increase lead generation opportunities & create potential customers
  • Upsell your products without being invasive

This is what an announcement looks like.
