What are the Benefits of Live Chat for Your Business?

Live chat provides many benefits for your business
Live chat is about turning interested leads into loyal, engaged customers. In the online world, making sales and keeping customers can depend greatly on the existence, speed, and professionalism of your website’s live chat.

Live Chat Increases Sales

Live chat boosts sales because it gives customers a better understanding, immediately, when they have questions or concerns about your product. This is why nearly 80% of businesses report that live chat has positively affected sales and revenue.

Live Chat Builds Loyalty

Because live chat improves user experience and provides a real person to interact with, feel understood by, and present the face of the company positively, loyalty builds. Beyond just getting a sale, live chat achieves customer retention. 51% of consumers are more likely to purchase again from a business with live chat support. (Kayako, 2021)

Live Chat Meets the Expectations of Prospective Customers for a Positive Online Experience

These days, prospective customers have higher expectations than ever for their online experience. A key part of these expectations is being able to chat with a real person to have their questions answered. That’s why more than 40% of consumers today consider real-time, 24/7 support one of the most important aspects of a satisfactory customer experience. (Zendesk, 2020)


Live Chat Provides a Way for Prospective Customers to Move Forward on Their Purchasing Journey

One of the main reasons a prospective customer gets onto a site and then leaves it is because they didn’t find the information they were looking for quickly, or they had questions that weren’t answered easily on the website. With live chat, your potential customers have an easy way to find the information they wanted immediately and take the next step toward a purchase.
