Are Website Chat Boxes Harmful Or Helpful?

We've all seen those little boxes pop up to assist us whenever we visit a new website. The
chatbox might appear out of nowhere and will ask if you need help or would like to speak
to someone about a particular product. If you're looking for help, these chatboxes might
be helpful, but they might seem like a nuisance if you're not. So the real question here is,
are website chat boxes harmful or helpful? But before we answer that, we should explain what a website chat box is for those who have no clue what we're covering in this blog post.

What Are Website Chat Boxes? 

A website chat widget allows customers to talk to a customer support agent via a website. Typically, a chat widget is located in the bottom corner of a website in the form of a small chat box or button.

Why Do Websites Have Chat Boxes?

Online chat software is more convenient and less stressful for many customers than speaking to a stranger over the phone. It is easier to interrupt a session and return with the document or reference they need, and they are sure it will be understood.

Chat Boxes: Harmful Or Helpful

Your website's content and whether or not you want to assist your clients with their questions will determine whether or not chat boxes are helpful. People will feel more comfortable and willing to give you their information knowing that they will receive help. 

The chatbox might be seen as a nuisance if it continues to pop up as people visit your website. If your website chatbox is not helpful, reconsider using one in the future. But if your chatbox does not help or assist your website's content or customers, you might need to rethink your strategy.
