Blowing up Customer Service!
Do you want to open a new door for customers to come flooding in? Do you want to talk with customers while they are looking at your website? Do you want to provide great customer service? That is why we are all in business isn’t it? To provide a great service to customers. Customers provide us with income, growth and an opportunity to do bigger and better things. They need to be our focus.
More customers prefer Chat2 as a communication channel
When I offer Chat2 to new clients, one of the first comments is – “but I don’t want to employ another person to operate chat”. Who said anything about employing another person? Sure that might happen if Chat2 is the channel your customers are demanding you communicate through. We are seeing this change in many industries. Businesses need to prepare for a different way of doing things as technology evolves or the technology will disrupt and overtake the business. The video industry had this unpleasant experience.
Be open to technology and innovation. Consider it, trial it, customer service is evolving with technology in the online space and business need to take heed or potentially become invisible.
Chat2 improves customer service and loyalty
Information is so easy to access online and this is educating our customers and empowering them to go elsewhere if they don’t like the customer experience. That was what I did this morning. There was a technical glitch on the website where I always buy my coffee. There was no Chat2 to fix the problem for me so I went and bought my coffee elsewhere. If the first website had Chat2 – I could have immediately contacted them, advised them of the problem and they would probably have offered me a free coffee to keep me as a customer. I would then become more loyal to them and continue to buy my coffee. Its all about customer service. If you don’t provide it online, your customers will go elsewhere.
Online is the new space for businesses and customers to meet – so get use to connecting with your customers in this space.
Mike Milburn, senior vice president manager of the Salesforce Service Cloud stated
“Live, personalized service is revolutionizing how companies deliver customer care. Real-time, and on-screen guided assistance boost engagement and build rapport between the customer and the company. It also enables businesses to serve the right information at the right time. Advanced technologies like these are the future of customer support,” Milburn predicts.
Chat 2 is a technology that allows businesses to provide live, real time, personalized and on-screen guided assistance to their customers.
Who will operate Chat2
So how do we initially embrace this technology and incorporate it into our businesses? First you need to evaluate the current positions you have, who is doing what? Could you add live chat to their role? A chat operator can chat with numerous customers compared to a traditional phone operator, so maybe roles need be redesigned. Chat2 can be allocated to various positions that use a computer for their role. It could be admin, reception, marketing, accounting, human resources or purchasing duties. The operation of Chat2 could be rostered through various positions or everyone can be online at one time to grab that chat. You receive a sound notification and banner on your screen when a chat is received. Its just like having another phone line but through a computer, tablet or phone and you can speak to more than one customer at a time.
Chat operators are far less costly compared to the traditional phone operator according to a Forrester study, as the cost of phone call far out weighs that of a chat. Also more clients can be assisted at one time in comparison to a chat operator which is a great time and cost saving.
If you find that Chat2 is really popular with your customers and that is their preference to communicate, then maybe you need to change how things are done. Maybe that is changing roles, employing chat agents or even employing contractor chat agents to answer calls and get leads. If you don’t you may become the next video store story.
Chat2 can be online and self-managed
Chat2 can send automatic messages to online customers if they start a chat. Chat2 can ask automatically for them to leave their name and number and the business will phone them. No one needs to have done anything. There are many other automatic prompts that can be set up in this way.
Embrace Chat and ensure your online door is always open. Chat2 should be online throughout business hours and answered by staff or with the automatic prompts. Being online during business hours every day will encourage your visitors to use Chat2 more frequently.
For Chat2 to be embraced by customers you need to let your clients know about the new communication channel or it won’t be used, so ensure you promote it on your website.
“The only thing that gives an organization a competitive edge…is what it knows, how it uses what it knows and how fast it can know something.”
Chats can be answered from Anywhere at Anytime
Chat2 is mobile so check out how you can Work from Anywhere, Anytime, Any Place.
