A link to your Public Account landing page can be used to direct users from a place outside of Viber to your Public Account. Links are flexible and potentially have the largest reach of any other sharing method.
Every Public Account has a landing page that can be accessed by any user, and can direct them to your Public Account.
The landing page can usually be found by creating the following link: viber.me/URI. Find your URI on your account's edit screen.
Put this link on your website and landing pages, in your app, in emails, newsletters, service messages and more. The possibilities are endless.
Add the plugin to your website or landing page to keep your users up-to-date with the latest content on your Public Chat.
