Boost your online sales with live chat
As a business owner, you'll know the importance of providing prompt customer support.
It doesn't matter if you're business is online or offline, being readily available whenever potential clients come calling can make a huge difference.
Traditionally we would provide a telephone number and urge our clients to call us whenever they have questions.
But how do you deal with clients worldwide?
In different countries, speaking in different languages?
The answer: Live chat support.
Why would having a live chat help you?
Having a live chat for your WordPress website can help your company in many positive ways, here are a few of my reasons:
- People are buying the product that you offer, spending their hard earned money on you. So it’s only fair that you’re there for them when you’re needed.
- It shows that you trust in your own product and that you are there willing to answer any questions or queries about the product shows you back what you’re selling 110%.
- It will help your ratings and reviews. If customers have quick and helpful responses then they will be sure to review and recommend your product.
So here are 5 great live chat plugins to help your website:
