How to add Facebook messenger to your website

Are you looking for a free and easy way to add a live chat function to your website?

A live chat button is a great way to interact with your customers in real-time, if they have a quick question about your product or service.

Facebook messenger is the perfect tool, it’s simple to set up and it won’t cost you a penny. Before you start, make sure you can access the header code of your website - you’ll need to drop a little bit of code in there at the end.

Here’s a step-by-step guide, to show you how you do it:

1) Head over to your business Facebook page

2) Click on settings
