Connecting with your leads has never been easier!
Today we’re going to show you exactly how to setup a live chat on your real estate website.

A live chat option will allow you to answer any questions your prospects may have.
You can start a conversation instantly while a lead is browsing your site.
And this is going to make a huge difference when converting your web traffic to leads.
Here’s how it’s done!
The first thing you’re going to need is a chat tool.
For this setup, we’re going to be using Zendesk Chat, formally known as Zopim.
It’s a really cool platform with some pretty great functionality that you can use for free.
The lite version is what we’ll be demonstrating today and you can upgrade to a larger scale if you need depending on this size of your team.
To get started, enter your name, email, and click TRY CHAT
You’ll then need to go to your inbox to confirm your email so you can start chatting.
After you verify your email, you’ll go into the Zendesk dashboard, answer a few questions about yourself and then you can setup your chat.
Enter your name and tagline – you can use agent, marketer or any working title you prefer – and then you’re ready to get your widget!
There are some simple directions listed on this page.
We’ll be setting up our live chat on a LeadSite.
If you’re a LeadSite user, continue to follow along.
If not, you can still install this chat box by following the instructions provided.
Copy the script above and then head to the backend of your LeadSite.
Under the Apps section, click on Pixels.
Pixels is the place where your retargeting, analytics, and advertising pixels can be added in a matter of seconds!
Once inside, scroll past your Google Analytics, Facebook, and Pinterest sections and turn on “advanced users only“
From there, scroll to the bottom and paste your code into the Wild Card box.
The chatbox will live in the lower right corner of your site and will appear on all pages.
So when leads are looking around they’ll always have the option to chat and so will you!
You can also use Zendesk Chat to monitor your chat analytics.
And setup triggers for your live chat.
This will allow you to send automated responses and greetings and even collect lead information.
