Live Chat Support: A Good Supplement to Your Customer Care Programs

Almost everybody is going online. Teenagers, family members, couples, consumers and businessmen as well are using every little benefit available in the Internet. For sales prospects, they scout for goods that can be bought out of the convenience of online business. Others search for product reviews, prices, specifications and shipping terms for international trade. Aside from social networking, online chatting and voluminous information, business is in a rampage over the World Wide Web.

I bet some of your existing and would-be customers are also having their sessions online. Without a doubt, this is a good opportunity for you to extend your customer care program and live answering service in the Internet through a live chat support. If you attach this application to your website, visitors of your web pages will find it convenient to reach you. Live chat support is the ideal channel to answer low to moderately complex product and service support. It can also be a means to conduct surveys without being intrusive.

Live chat support is almost the same with instant messaging, but the “chatting” happens between your customer service representative and a customer. It allows support staff to reach out to customers get involved in a one-to-one interaction. It also extends communication opportunities while maximizing customer satisfaction with website experience. In a study conducted y Phplivesupport.com, an online buyer who utilizes a chat support is 20% more likely to purchase than a person who does not.

If you do not have a live chat support you should add it in the roster of your customer care services to increase customer satisfaction.
