According to the California Association of REALTORS® 2009 survey of homebuyers, 36% of consumers expect agents to respond instantly to inquiries. That's a pretty tough expectation to meet.
But Meebo, an online "live chat" or instant message application, makes it just a little easier.
You may be familiar with instant messaging, and use services like AOL Instant Messenger, MSN Messenger or Google Talk on your computer.
Meebo works the same way, but allows you to place live chat on your own website or blog so that any visitor can reach you instantly whenever you are online.
To set Meebo up on your website or blog, you will need to create and install the Meebo widget (a widget is just a small internet tool or program). Doing this is remarkably easy - it's just a matter of copying and pasting the widget code. If you are not comfortable doing this, your Webmaster will be.
Once set up, the Meebo widget requires no maintenance. Visitors can chat with you anytime you are online.
And the best thing of all? It's completely free!
What it does: Allows you to add live chat or instant message to your website or blog. How to use it: Put the Meebo widget on your website or blog and never miss another lead!
