Live Chat Support Tips to Maximize Your Online Shopping Experience
If you love to use live chat support while purchasing goods online, here are some live chat support tips you can consider to make the most of this online experience.
Familiarize Yourself with the Live Chat Service
You might feel anxious while using the live chat feature for the first time. Still, soon, it will get as easy as having a real time interaction with customer support. To make the experience easier for you, you need to become familiar with the software.
Customize Your Chat Using a Pre-Chat Survey Form
Although you are not required to provide personal details while using the live chat features, providing information like your address and a brief description of what you are looking for can offer you a real-time support experience.
Before using the live chat feature, you can use a pre-chat survey form to provide the relevant information. That will help the chat agent locate the information required before starting the chat, so you can get your questions answered promptly. It will also help the sales team provide future follow ups.
Also, filling up a pre-chat survey form will allow your session to be routed to an appropriate chat agent who is most equipped to deal with your situation.
Ask for the Customer's Transcript
The problem with using a live chat service is that there is sometimes no record of the chat history to look back to in the future. If you want a recorded copy of the conversation for future reference, you can request a copy of the customer transcript via email after using the live chat.
If available, the chat agent can forward the transcript of your live chat conversation by email for you to check your chat history in the future. If not, you can copy and paste the chat conversation yourself.
Keep Your Questions Ready
Most online customers are eager to get their questions answered, but fail to frame their questions correctly during the live chat sessions, causing unnecessary delays and confusion.
If you face a concern during online shopping, and want to resolve it using the live chat feature, keep your questions ready before clicking on the chat icon.
You can quickly jot down the issue on a piece of paper before beginning the chat sessions to get your questions answered clearly and concisely. Alternatively, you can type out your questions, and simply copy and paste them into the chat software.
Allow Chat Transfer
Remember you are dealing with a real person while using the live chat sessions. As with many customers, the chat agent may not have all the answers to the queries, and may wish to transfer the chat to someone more equipped to handle them.
Allowing chat transfer when requested can help customers get expert information from simultaneous chats.
Use the Callback Feature
Sometimes during rush hours, you might not get through to a chat representative immediately. Instead, you might be asked to leave your number, so you can be messaged when the next representative is available.
You can wait for your opportunity online, or provide your contact number to get a callback. If you want to save time from endlessly waiting for your turn, using the callback option can allow you to multitask instead.
Use Video Chat
Often a video chat option is provided to allow better customer satisfaction. If you feel that talking face to face through video would address your issue more clearly, you can use the video chat option where available to speak directly with a chat agent.
Be Kind and Reasonable
It is easy to make mistakes on an online live chat. Ensure you have reasonable expectations while communicating your queries to the live chat agents. The support agents are human, and need your kindness and understanding to provide their best customer support.
Use Concise, Clear, and Simple Language
Simplicity is the key when chatting online with a live chat representative. Remember, the support agents regularly handle a large volume of customers' questions. To get a clear answer to questions, customers should write about their problems clearly and directly.
To make your conversation clear, write in short, clear sentences. Avoid flowery language, and get to the point directly, without beating around the bush. Stick to the main issue through the chat session to get your queries addressed.
Avoid Jokes or Sarcasm
An online live support feature involves chat agents who are placed to resolve the customer's purchase concerns promptly. Any unnecessary jokes or sarcasm might confuse or put off the live agent, causing unnecessary delays in resolving your issues.
To experience a proactive chat session, keep the questions relevant and to the point, avoiding the use of jokes or sarcasm in your conversation.
Avoid Typing in Caps
To have a successful online live chat session, customers must follow some standard chat etiquette. Make sure not to type in all caps, which implies shouting in online chats. You do not want to appear rude and angry while using the live chat service.
Embrace the Emoji
Chatting online can have benefits, but it does not show your feelings. Using emojis showcase a positive customer experience to the chat agents, allowing the conversation to flow freely.
Use Live Support at a Convenient Time
Although the live chat option is available 24x7, customers must set aside some time to attend the session successfully. Make sure to click the chat option when you have at least 15 mins of time to provide undivided attention to the chat agents to get all your queries answered.
Putting an end to the chat before resolving the issue, or rushing through the chat session, can waste your time while making you feel frustrated.
Avoid Leaving the Chat Midway
The entire purpose of the live chat option is to resolve your issues, and provide you with a smooth purchasing experience. Leaving the chat midway, without getting all your inquiries answered, will cause frustration, while wasting valuable time.
If during the chat session, you find the information provided is not helpful, you can make a chat request to redirect you to other expert chat agents who can answer your questions better. If you remain unsatisfied with customer support, you can call or email the company to get the response you are looking for.
Avoid Asking too Many Questions
The online chat feature has been implemented to provide a positive customer experience as you shop online. Before initiating a chat request, browse the website and blog posts thoroughly to gather all the relevant information about the brand's history and products.
Asking too many irrelevant questions can take up valuable time, and leave you unsatisfied at the session's end. Also, the chat agents would be unable to provide the customer satisfaction you deserve. But, if you are unable to find the answers to your questions, of course feel free to ask the chat agent.
Remember to Thank the Chat Agents
Lastly, a live support feature is free, and helps you navigate the online customer experience. Remember to thank the chat agent for successfully resolving your queries before ending the chat session.
If you have a query or concern while completing your online purchase here at PlushBeds, our live chat support feature can get you connected to a real person instantly. You can use this feature for free to get all your question answered at your convenience.
