Added Crisp to the site

Brian Watson @biologistbrian

I'm getting visitors to the site, but the sign ups aren't as high of a conversion as I think they should be - so, I'm hoping by putting a chat client on the landing page some of those fence-sitters will engage me and ask any questions they may have! We'll see!

Also, I highly recommend Crisp - it was free and ridiculously simple to install. I googled intercom alternatives =)

Great product @ant0in9

    Hey Brian, LOVE the concept and appreciate the tip about Crisp. Never heard of that one before. Keep us updated on whether or not it helps with your conversion rate!

    I’m going to have to check that out. I used to be a big fan of intercom, but they are just so crazy expensive now. Looking forward to checking this out.
