Embed Chat In Your Website

by Andy Brudtkuhl on March 31, 2010

A few days ago over lunch I held an impromptu mastermind session over at our new internet business community Lunchtime Mastermind. After a few minutes of research I landed on Chatroll – one of my new favorite tools. Chatroll allowed me to create a chat room (with tons of great options) and embed it in my website in about 5 minutes – for free.

Small Business Internet Marketing Chat

Why would you want this? You could use it for many things – from covering live events to live Q&A. In our instance we want a way to easily have mastermind sessions with our members.

Chatroll Features:

  • Easily embed in any website (including a great WordPress Plugin)
  • Customize color and size to match the look and feel of your site
  • Moderate with 1-click delete, custom profanity filters and IP block
  • Manage read, write and moderate permissions with fine-grained access controls
  • And Tons More

One feature we are integrating into our mastermind group now is single sign on. Using this our members will be able to log in to our mastermind chat sessions using their WordPress membership account. Sometimes technology makes it easy :-)
