Three Ways Live Chat Benefits Improving E-commence Business and Sales

Online buying and selling has become normality in our daily life, whether you are start-ups or big corporations, communication with web visitors has become a key part for success of online businesses. Apart from traditional communication methods like phone calls and emails,
more and more online businesses have incorporated live chat into their websites as an alternative to offer customer support. It is a great way to assist the website visitors and get their attention before they leave.

There are a lot of live chat software available on the market and it is as easy as embedding a link on your website. Here is what you can look for by adding live chat to your website.

  1. Increase sales with real-time assistance and proactive chat

    According to a report from Forrester: “Many online consumers want help from a live person while they are shopping online; in fact, 44% of online consumers say that having questions answered by a live person while in the middle of an online purchase is one of the most important features a website can offer.” Live chat keeps website visitors engaged. Answering their questions in real time makes them trust your brand more, and makes them more likely to purchase your products and services. Besides, you can proactively reach out to your web visitors when you notice he or she needs some assistance. Since most web visitors will hesitate before making a purchase, and sometimes they just need a little nudge to pull the trigger.

  2. Improve customer satisfaction with quick response

    For online businesses, keeping your customers happy should always be on top of your priority list. Time is valuable for everyone. Many web visitors don’t have the patience to wait for an email or voice mail to be returned and some even can get agitated due to the slow reply. Many features in live chat software can reduce the amount of time that it takes to resolve customer issues. Auto accept chat enables you to accept chat requests immediately; department allows you to route customers to the most appropriate department; chat transfer & join makes sure that customer issues are handled by the right person; canned messages make it easy for you to quickly give customers an accurate answer. Offering assistance to your customer in a timely manner will make them feel that they are valued and important which will improve your customer loyalty.

  3. Cut down your expenses with less call center and human resources cost

    Compared with money involved in maintaining even a small-scale call center where you just have two to three operators, money you spend on live chat is much lower. Besides, as for a call center, you can only take one call at a time and some times even face the problem that you can’t hear clearly due to signal problems, while when offering live support for customer service, you can take multiple chats in one time – which significantly reduces your human resources cost and at the same time boosts your customer service.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

A Peek at the Google Music Beta Install Process

This is a guest post by Nadia Jones.

Those of you in the United States might have noticed that Google Music Beta has started to get some buzz on the internet. Invites have gone out wave after wave, and as one of the people to get an early look at the application, I have to say that it's definitely worth your time to get in on this as soon as possible. I've used it for a few days and can say that it's greatly simplified my music experience. I no longer have to worry about which songs are on my work computer or home computer, nor do I have to carry around my iPod and my Android, as I can access my Google music on the phone as well.

Perhaps the greatest thing about Google Music Beta is that the install process hardly takes any time at all, which is what we've come to expect from the people at Google.

Once you get the invite in your email, click on the link and Google will take you through a series of installation steps: you will electronically accept some terms, install t…

Motorola Droid 4 – The RAZR with a QWERTY

This is a guest post by Simon about Motorola Droid 4. After a bit of a slump when the first iPhone was launched, Motorola managed to pull itself back from the brink by releasing the Motorola Droid (also known as the Milestone in some markets). This highly popular Android device came with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and has been one of the most popular phone brands in recent years.

Motorola has since produced 3 Droid phones, although only 2 of these made an appearance outside of the US. Now the company is set to launch its fourth Droid, which builds on earlier versions while also sharing many design characteristics with the new RAZR.

Like the RAZR, the Droid 4 is powered by a dual core 1.2GHz chip with 1GB RAM, and comes with full LTE support. The screen is a little smaller than the RAZR's, measuring just 4 inches instead of 4.3, but the phone does come with a physical QWERTY keyboard, a major factor in the popularity and success of earlier Droid phones.

The Droid 4 also sees an im…
