Zack, Co-Founder says:
“One of the biggest hesitations for customers new to live chat is the fear of being unavailable to chat with customers, or simply that live chat software is just a customer support expense they can adopt at a later date.  Nowadays you can alleviate the problem of being unavailable by defining your own schedule/availability, use mobile apps to receive push notifications from anywhere in the world, and leverage features like auto-display and auto-response to do the heavy lifting for you while you’re busy doing 100 other things.   Our customers quickly find out live chat is not just a customer support tool, but a conversation starter.  It gives business owners invaluable feedback about their product or service offering, helps drive visitors into paying customers, and allows you to adapt your business (or website) with actual customer input.  You can’t afford to delay the adoption of live chat any longer.”

Olark

Olark

Olark is live chat software for websites. We’re designing Olark to make the humans who use it more powerful. This means businesses can have their teams talk to customers before they make a purchasing decision, and customers who depend on chat can reach a helpful human when they need one.

Karl Pawlewicz, Head of Communications says:
“Having human to human conversations over chat creates a rich library of qualitative data – product feedback, competitive analysis, sales objections, insight into the buying process. Every conversation tells you a little more about what your customers are thinking, and what’s influencing their decisions. Anyone who works in sales or marketing would be well served to review their organization’s chat transcripts regularly to understand exactly what their customers are saying. They can then use the same language their customer’s use in their sales and marketing collateral, which should help improve sales and conversions.”

lucky orange

LuckyOrange

Lucky Orange is a website’s secret weapon to conquering conversions, allowing businesses to peek behind the “digital curtain” to really understand how visitors actually use their website. In addition to live chat, other Lucky Orange features include award-winning dynamic heatmaps, user recordings, form analytics, conversion funnels, real-time dashboard, and polls.

What makes us different: Simply put, Lucky Orange operates with a customer-first mentality. Every Lucky Orange feature is included in all plans, and there is no limit to the number of chats you can have. Speaking of Lucky Orange’s live chat, operators can actually co-browse with customers in real-time to see exactly what page a visitor is on and then activate a pointer to help lead the visitor through the check-out process or to find a specific product. Not only that, but chat logs are automatically saved for future reference and analysis (at no extra charge).

Also, when our customers speak up, we listen! Not many other companies can say that. Our dynamic heatmaps are an excellent example of this, and we have even more exciting, soon-to-be released updates that also show our dedication to our customers, their needs, and their feedback.

Danny Wajcman, COO & Co-Founder says:
“Don’t underestimate the power of user feedback! If you don’t know what’s wrong, you can’t fix it. Sometimes a simple change can mean a difference between a profitable website and one that is bleeding leads and sales every single day.”

Angi Bowman, Marketing Manager and Community Builder says:
“Don’t treat your customers as visitors! Roll out the red carpet and treat them like guests in your own house instead of simply visitors. It’s a small mindset change that can create a huge improvement in your conversion rate.”
