What is Before We Talk?Before We Talk (BWT) is a browser communication tool built for freelancers and agencies to communicate with clients and internally. There's nothing to install, and it works by simply sharing links to a conversation.

To start a new conversation, click Create Flow. This lets you Add Steps, which are just chat messages you want recipients to view.

When you click Save, you'll get a link. Share this link with anyone you want.

When someone gets the link, they see the Steps you added. If you allow recipients to reply, each reply will start a private conversation thread between you and the person replying.
