Improving the user experience on your website should be a #1 priority. If users can find what they are looking for they will leave your site happy. And that matters, a lot.

One way to do that is by installing useful plugins or widgets. Those widgets enhance performance, add new dimensions and multiply the overall functionality. There are thousands of available free plugins for every type of website. Lately, as I was interested in installing a live chat application I came across many options but I decided to start with Tawk.to. The reason?…the most appealing offer.

And here I am reviewing the application for you as I am already using it for a couple of months now.

Tawk.to App Review

When you arrive at the homepage the main headline is pretty straightforward, as it should be…

How to Get Started

  • Copy a simple line of Javascript to the HTML of your website and the chat widget starts working instantly.
  • Start chatting: log in to the dashboard to invite members of your team, create shortcuts, and start chatting with¬†visitors.
  • Track progress: Monitor and track you and your teams’ progress over time, review chat history, and check performance in analytics.

I chose to install the plugin from the WordPress.org directory.

The Vision

My Experience so Far

I really love this cool application. At first, when I signed up, I was not expecting to find so many features in a free program.

The settings are endless and you can customize the user experience to suit your site’s design.¬†

I installed the tawk.to plugin from my WordPress dashboard. I use a laptop and tawk.to opens in a tab on my internet browser.

On the upper right corner, there is a tab where you can change your status. There are 3 options (invisible, away, and online). Do not forget to change the status when you are offline as all the triggers you already have set will remain enabled. 

Another thing that I like is the sound notifications. Anytime someone enters the chat widget you will be notified from your computer. So there is no need to monitor the tawk.to internet tab at all.

tawk-to-app

The “Dashboard” tab shows important statistics from all the previous sessions. The “Monitoring” tab shows all the users that are currently on your site. The “Messaging” tab shows all the previous messages with all the visitors separately. When someone wants to chat and you join the conversation, the app automatically shows you the following details

  • In which page/post the visitor is currently on.
  • How much time they spent on each page/post on your site
  • How exactly they landed on your site. For example, referred by a search engine.
  • If they navigated from one page to another on your site, this is displayed as well
  • Their country and name

 All of the above details are very useful as you can prepare for the right answer before you even join the conversation. Not only, but you can also analyze the behavior of visitors and even understand which pages and call to actions work better than others.

¬†The “Reporting” tab shows detailed statistics and analytics. The “Admin” tab is where you change all the settings.

tawk-to-app

You can also set automated triggered messages. For example, I have set up a welcoming message “Hello, how can I help you?”…whenever a user stays on a page for more than 5 minutes. This way, I can show the visitor that I am there ready to answer their questions. Many visitors started a chat with me by answering my automated message.

It is really up to you. You can ignore this feature if you think it does not get any results. Of course, sometimes visitors might feel they are getting interrupted, but these are rare situations. There are also times that you will receive an angry response…like “Help me?…really?…

But do not get disappointed. Probably those visitors are not potential customers. And even if they are you don’t want to mess up with people that do not respect others.

 

The app is very fast and when you are talking with a visitor the app displays your letters when they type for their next chat message. If they delete or change the text that is updated instantly as well. A feature that can save you tons of time, as you have the chance to prepare the next answer before the user send the message. So, your answer will fly to another end, improving the performance of your site.

 In case you are offline and a visitor wants to leave a message you will be notified when you revisit the tawk.to dashboard and by email as well. The visitor has the option to leave a message and an email address so you can get back to them whenever possible. 

So far I am very satisfied with this application. I have answered dozens of messages and many people enjoyed the tawk.to experience. When I was not using a live chat application the only way visitor could contact me was through the contact form or by leaving a comment. But with the live chat app, you can serve people way faster.

Partnering With Tawk.to

*Update: They lately introduced a partnership program that has 3 levels.

Final Thoughts

The tawk.to app is a handy tool, useful for any website, any niche, any industry. Users need answers to their questions and a live chat app is where you can demonstrate speed and your knowledge.

Comments, emails, and contact forms are useful as well. But a live chat app is where you take communication to the next level.

We are living in an era of technology where speed is very important. I suggest that you consider using a live chat app as soon as possible. You won’t regret it.

That’s it, another review has finished, here on Web Market Support. I am waiting for your comments and thoughts. Till next time.
