This tool is an old one, but I don't see many people using it, and that is why I am writing today to tell you about it.

It's a free live chat tool from Google for anyone with a Google account. You can add it to your profile page, blog or website.

It is useful because it will encourage any potential client visiting your profile or website to talk to you whenever you are online, and thus increasing your chance of getting more clients. It will also make your website look professional and add to its credibility.

You can see an example on my profile page or on my website

To get yours, simply go to: and you will just need to copy and paste a small piece of code.

You will need to be logged in to appear online and available for chat.

Tip: Whenever you change your Google Talk status or add a custom message, this will be instantly reflected on the web page which has the tool. You can add a custom message like “I am here, talk to me” or “Don’t hesitate to ask any questions”, etc.

Hope you will benefit from this tool, and have more live talks with new clients soon icon_smile.gif

Best regards

But I'm still willing to try what you mentioned with the badge.icon_smile.gif

Agree with Piotr Jun 11, 2010

Skype is more reliably used by many clients, and I don't feel like using another tool. Good gadget anyway.

Great tool! Jun 12, 2010

I've already applied it in my website! It is really useful as I'm almost all day online.
A big thank you!
