Why would you outsource live chat?
Outsourcing live chat can be an important decision, Outsourcing a part of your company is an important decision in and of itself. We understand this very well.
However, to achieve the best sales for your business and create the best experience for your customers, you will need to consider outsourcing to experts.
One of the areas of your company which we feel you should outsource is the management of live chat. This article addresses one of the main reasons why you should outsource live chat to a professional team of operators like ours. If you want even more reasons, simply start a chat with one of our operators and see how excellent they are.
In the past, the phone was not always used as a sales and customer service tool. Once sales and customer service call centers first came onto the market, it was not about picking the right phone, but about hiring the right people to exploit the technology to its full potential. The phone itself did not generate additional sales or an excellent customer service; the employee using the phone did.
The same applies to live chat. You cannot expect a sudden major increase in sales or lead generation or improved customer service by simply adding that live chat button to your website. It is the live chat operator who understands the needs of the customer, builds the relationship with them so that problems are solved in a quick and friendly manner, gets to better know their needs in a polite way, and increases sales by solving problems and making appropriate product recommendations.
That is why you need to have the right people to operate the live chat. Therefore, it is better to outsource your live chat to live chat expert.
The live chat operator
Some people have the right personal qualities, confidence, and skills to conduct a good conversation, while others do not. The same applies to live chat. Note, everyone can handle multiple quick chats while providing an excellent service and increasing sales and lead generation.
Our live chat operators are the kind of people who are ready for anything a customer could throw at them. They understand the customers, even when they use poor spelling, incorrect technical terms, or incomplete sentences. They know what to do when they are confronted with an unsatisfied (or satisfied!) customer. And best of all, they know how to explain a solution, despite the level of technical knowledge a customer has; and they know how to make product recommendations and upsell them to increase conversation and average order values.
Not only do our operators have the right personality and language skills to calm a customer, they also have the skills to provide the customer with even more.
Our operators are trained to convert a poor customer experience into a great customer experience. Converting a partially interested prospect into a lead, and a window shopper into a returning customer.
As I said, it’s not about implementing the technology on your site, it’s about deploying the right people who know how to convert live chat into benefits for your business. Just because you have a customer service team that understands every inch of your company and is great at answering questions via e-mail or phone does not mean they are able to be experts at live chat. Live chat is a fast-paced written communication channel. Chat operators need to have the right skills and training to be able to handle multiple questions at a time and get the most out of these interactions.
That is why you should outsource live chat to a team that knows what it is doing, Outsourcechats.com.
