Let me show you how I use online live chat to increase sales and have better customer support.

Watch this video.

As mentioned in the video leave me a comment on this blog post if you would be interested in an info product that makes this super easy to setup on your own site and / or across multiple niches. Videos on installing and setting up the Livezilla chat software (Windows only I’m affraid people), and the script to get a nice hover popup over your existing pages. Which is the best way to get a chat going. Not some static live help image sitting off to the side of the website that no one sees.

For those brave souls that like a challenge and do it on your own, make sure you get started with LiveZilla.

Forget all the paid chat services, they can’t handle multiple instances of the chat software which is what internet marketers need. Those with multiple personalities anyway 🙂

Thought I’d answer a question from the warrior forum on my blog with a video. I know some of your will want to know this. Watch below.

How to delay a buy button or link to appear on your website after a certain amount of time. This is popular for video sales letters so that visitors are forced to watch to a certain point in the video.

Of course this method is so crude that the visitor just needs to pause the video on your webpage and come back to it later and the button / link will have appeared since it’s just on a timer and not triggered from the video player. So if you need to sync this up to appear when you are speaking about it in the video, you’ll need the more advanced method.

The more advanced method is hooking the javascript up to an event from the flash player at the 15th minute for example. JWplayer (my favourite web based flash FLV player) has this ability, but that’s a whole other video tutorial since it’s an advanced approach.

But why make it hard for yourself, just do it this way it’ll cover you for most cases.

Stick this in the header area of your code

	
<script type="text/javascript">
    function showBuyLink() {
      document.getElementById("buylink").style.visibility = "visible";
    }
	// adjust this as needed, 1 sec = 1000
    setTimeout("showBuyLink()", 5000); 
</script>

Stick this around your buy link code.

<div id="buylink" style="visibility: hidden">
	<!-- put all your add to cart buy links and images inside this hidden div -->
	<p style="text-align:center; font-size:26px;">
	<a href="http://mybuylink">Add to Cart or Buy Link</a>
	</p>
</div>
