Add Beacon to Your Website or App
Beacon provides on-demand FAQs, chat, and an email contact rolled into one helpful widget. To add Beacon to your website or web based app, just create a new Beacon or grab the installation code from the Beacon you want to use, and pop that into your website or app. Our SDKs will help your mobile developers add Beacon to your mobile apps too.

Website Builder Guides
We've put together guides for some of the most popular website builder platforms to walk you through placing the default Beacon install code in your site. Choose your platform below to get started.
There are quite a few different plugins available that can handle this for you so you can pick the one that suits your own needs the best. If you're not sure how to get moving there, Simple Custom CSS and JS might be a good place to start. (Note: We are not affiliated with that plugin in any way, that just one we found ourselves! If you need help with the plugin, you'll want to reach out to their support forum.)
