LibAnswers Proactive LibChat Helps You Reach More Users

Hear from guest speakers Joanna Kimmitt (CSU, Dominguez Hills Library)and Gabriel Gardner (CSU, Long Beach Library) discuss how implementing LibAnswers Proactive LibChat widgets helped them increase user engagement. In fact, user engagement increased so much at the Long Beach Campus Library, they couldn't keep up with demand and reverted back to static LibChat widgets. 

These guest speakers will cover:

  • Why they implemented, and in once case reverted, LibChat's Proactive Chat Widget.
  • Where and how they implemented the Proactive Chat Widget.
  • The results which included a 267% increase in chat engagements.

What is LibAnswers w/ LibChat?

LibAnswers is your multi-channel communication platform, helping you boost interactions with users via Twitter, Email, SMS, Facebook, searchable FAQs, and LibChat. 

LibChat, a component of LibAnswers, empowers you to create proactive chat widgets that are customizable and embeddedable across your many web sites. Embed a proactive Libchat widget that engages users within 45 seconds on your library homepage and a different proactive Libchat widget that displays after 2 minutes inside your discovery layer. There's no limit to the number or types of chat widgets you can create. All chats, no matter where they originate from, come into one operator console for easy answering.
