In this week's tutorial series, we'll be discussing Live Chats. Online live chatting has been growing in popularity for many website owners. Perhaps a customer visits your site for something specific or maybe they're just browsing. Whatever the reason, you don't want to lose the opportunity to close a sale. Live chat can help you achieve just that by enhancing their shopping experience. Add a live chat feature to your WordPress site in the most easy and affordable way today.
There are quite a few live chat services available, but for this tutorial we'll be using the LiveChat Plugin. It can be hard to find because of the name's popularity so we provided a link to make it easier to find.
Right off the bat you'll need to install this plugin, which you can achieve via the WordPress admin panel. Once the plugin is installed and activated, you will be able to see the LiveChat menu option in the WordPress admin panel. This will allow you to begin the setup.
Having a WordPress server on your computer provides a great option to test out a theme or plugin in a safe environment before adding it to a live server. Many developers actually use this method to work with a new WordPress project because it allows them to manipulate and change the site safely.
It may seem more efficient to work on the live website but with a local server there is no downtime for the website, so the business can remain up and running as you implement all the changes you'd like. Also, it helps on the backend that your client would not see the changes being made and get concerned about the progression of the website's development before you're even finished.

To put it simply, affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting someone else's products. For example, if you promote a link to purchase another company's product through your website, and someone purchases the item through that link, you get a percentage of the sale.
