5. Next, on the Header Content click the HTML tool button to bring up the HTML Source Editor. Please see screenshot below.

6. Next paste the Skype WEB HTML right below the contact numbers. Then click the UPDATE button once you’ve pasted the code. Please see screenshot below.

8.  Next, checkout your free website. Try the new Skype button on your website by clicking the icon. Go ahead, try it.

       yeah, and the customers can contact you more faster and also the responses are more faster :)

  • Danielle Winters

    This really is a super-cool tool. I think we need this on our sites nowadays, as it is right there with the times we are in. :)

       yeah, maybe we will also have same contact options for YM and MSN

      • Danielle Winters

        That would be cool but I don’t mind Skype. It’s a good software for all kinds of communication-one of the most reliable.

  • Jessicah

    I guess when learning how to build a website this is something we should now consider. Convenience in communication is everything.

    Is Skype popular enough that this would be the way to go? Why not Google Voice or other Viop service?

    • Bob Charles

      You can definitely use Google voice or another voip service, there’s no reason to not try to add several of them when you create a website with our website builder. The only way to truly determine the overall impact this will have on your small business is to test it.

  • Mark

    This looks like one of the most simple ways to install a chat or phone app on a web page. I like Skype and would use it.

    • Bob Charles

      There’s no question that this will increase the conversation on your free web site, and hopefully result in more business. When you have a business website, you need to make yourself as available as possible, especially when starting out. There are also other chat applications such as Olark that you can embed onto a web page using our professional website maker.
