How Live Chat Improves the Support Experience for Customers

The fast, efficient customer support your business delivers can dramatically impact customer retention, satisfaction, and loyalty to your brand. As a business grows, providing superior customer support becomes more complex and difficult to deliver. That’s when adding live chat to your suite of support options can make all the difference in a positive customer experience. In fact, it has been established through surveys that customers prefer live chat to other forms of customer support.

The customer experience – how does your business rate?

No matter how compelling your marketing, how fast your website, or how superior your product is, customer support remains one of the most important of all aspects of customer experience, before a purchase, during the process, and after purchase. Consumers have questions, and a live chat feature makes it possible to build rapport with an interested user, answer individual questions and concerns, and can set the tone for a positive customer experience in the future. The speed of live chat is one of the most appreciated for consumers, who may have struggled with long phone wait times, and, once reaching the service department, may not get the questions answered due to lack of training or are passed on to another area, with another long wait time and the need to repeat the problem over and over, leading to frustration – and negative reviews. 

Build customer loyalty with live chat

A report issued by Forrester reveals that one in five customers will stop using a product due to poor customer support, with 82% of customers satisfied with a live chat experience, measured against a mere 61% satisfaction rate with email support and 44% satisfaction with phone support. Customers who choose the live chat feature expect a fast response, and choosing the best live chat system is critical. At SiteStaff Chat, we have developed a program that goes above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. Your live chat feature will be managed by real people who understand your product or service and are uniquely qualified to answer customer questions and concerns with confidence and accurate information.
