Before I move on, let me tell you a bit about myself
I am Karen Levett, the founder of the Live Chat Factory. Sixteen years ago, I was employed by the Which? Consumer Organisation, my focus was on customer service and giving the best experience to the member.
I was given a project to develop a live chat sales team for Which? Legal. Sales and live chat did not really go together then, many people thought of it as “just a service tool” me too! I was extremely excited by the brief, although, I just wanted someone to be on hand to show me where I needed to start.
How would I respond to visitors to the site?
How could I even create a live chat sales team?
How could I get people to buy legal services?!
Although I had a fabulous colleague who was developing the project with me, I was trying to figure everything out, and sometimes it was overwhelming and confusing! There were many moments when IT advised it would take 4 weeks to do some simple process or Analytics were hesitant to share website data, but I was determined.
It all came together when I started hiring the team. Wonderful individuals who were totally committed to their role. However, not really trained in live chat. I quickly realised I needed to coach the team to sell through live chat, whilst maintaining the high customer service ethos of the brand. I made a success of the project and increased sales by 11% in the first year, and the same model was rolled out across the company and is still being used.
Sometimes we learned the hard way which I am now grateful for because I now know what Live Chat Excellence looks like! I can confidently say your business will have a successful digital customer service team if you apply the same methodology in the Live Chat Excellence programme.
With Live Chat Excellence I have managed to:
- Increase sales conversion for clients up to 13 – 21%
- Build my own business with the ability to have over 15,000 chats per month.
- Improve customer satisfaction to achieve a minimum of 85% across different customer bases.
- Created multi-channel training solutions for businesses through live chat.
- Devised a simple easy to implement knowledge base tool.
They are things I worked towards. And making them happen was no accident.
- There’s a strategy for establishing a high performing Live Chat Team.
- There’s a strategy for increasing NPS.
- There’s a strategy for supporting leads from social media.
- There’s a strategy for increasing conversion on your website.
Bottom line: Good customer service puts money in the till.
Strive to be the best and create the successful team you want. And I want to share my experiences with you and help you to implement them, so that you can be a part of a growing group of individuals who work towards Live Chat Excellence.
