When a user visits a website, they don’t have the most remote idea on how to start using the various functionalities a website is offering. If any major changes are done on a website or new features are added then user faces difficulty in navigating through the website.

One of the solution for this is to hand-hold a user personally through the website or particular section to help him/her learn. But, if you think on a much larger scale, personally hand-holding each user who signs up for the website, is not feasible at all. This is where guided walkthroughs or tour become a boon.

SocialEngineAddOns has developed ‘Automated Website Tour, Walk-through & Feature Introduction Plugin’ to allow website’s admin to create interactive tour or guided walkthroughs to handhold the users through all the optimal touchpoints, helping them get a better understanding of ‘doing’. It guides the user step-by-step with contextual help that prompt users to navigate a website intuitively and easily. It comes along with instant auto-focus highlighting, as the user moves into a new step of the tour. In contrast to the lengthy verbose documents, descriptive videos, and presentations, this technology has become popular as a simple, yet productive alternative.
