Increase conversion rates with LiveAgent

Every business strives to improve their conversion rates by finding new ways to generate traffic to their site. However, when it comes to converting potential customers into existing customers, this method has low success rates.

The best way to improve conversion rates is to focus on tweaking aspects of your customer support strategy. A great example of this is implementing live chat and providing real-time support to shoppers.

Small tweaks like this can completely transform your conversion efforts. In fact, companies who said that they’re focused on improving their customer service reported an 11% higher conversion rate than companies who don’t.

Definition of conversion rates

What are conversion rates?

Your conversion rate is the percentage of visitors on your website that complete a desired goal (sign up for a trial, sign up for a subscription, buy a product) out of the total number of visitors.

A high conversion rate indicates that your marketing strategies are successful and that your product is easily attainable on your website.

What's a good conversion rate?

Conversion rates vary by industry and business model, so you might have to do some research to see where you stand. A great resource for this is the Google Adwords Industry Benchmarks tool. However, conventionally a good conversion rate is somewhere between 2% and 5%.

How to improve your conversion rate

Raising your conversion rate means that more of your site traffic converts to meaningful actions that grow your business, whether that means filling out a form to become a lead or making a purchase.

A low conversion rate could point to either of these problems:

The first steps to improve conversion

The best way to improve your conversion rate is to reconsider your offer. If your customers aren’t buying what you’re offering, it might mean that the offer is either too expensive or doesn’t bring enough value to your audience.

The second step is to optimize your site for conversions.

Real time support Lack of real-time support

Call us online button No on-site support

Shopping cart Complicated check out process

Still lacking good conversion rates

It's all about reducing customer effort

Your customers are just one Google search away from finding alternatives to your product. Don’t give them a reason to wander off.

Three different ways

Simplify the checkout process

Don’t make the check out process complex. Avoid creating too many steps, asking unnecessary questions, or requesting registration prior to check out.

Provide omnichannel support

Provide omnichannel support

Give your customers multiple ways to contact you and provide prompt support across all channels. Utilize knowledge bases, customer portals, and FAQs for self-service options.

Live chat bubbles

Chat with customers in real-time

Help out your customers in real-time. Answer any questions they might have about your products, shipping, or delivery to push them through the conversion funnel.

Utilize proactive chat invitations

Your customers might be on the fence about contacting you, but if you reach out, they’re bound to ask the questions that will help them make up their minds about their purchase.

Increase conversion rates with chat button

Increase conversion with the click of a button

Research shows that adding a live chat widget to your website can lift your conversion rate by 27%. Depending on your industry, this number can be way higher. With live chat’s marginal costs, it’s a no brainer.

So how can live chat increase conversion rates so easily? Shoppers tend to have many questions when shopping online. However, there’s only a limited time frame in which they can be answered. If they don’t receive immediate support, they’re likely to look for alternatives and purchase from competitors.

Provide self-help options

Your customers may have questions that can be answered by conducting a simple search on your website. However, if they can’t find the info they need, they’ll be frustrated and disappointed.

Provide them with a designated place such as a customer portal where they can view answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about shipping, sizing, and more. This type of support is very valuable as it requires 0 effort from your agents, and it’s available 24/7.

Be proactive

Be proactive

If you see potential buyers on your site for longer than a few minutes, they’re clearly looking for something or conflicted about purchasing from you. Ease your customer’s worries by proactively inviting them to chat with you.

You can answer any questions they may have about your products or point them in the right direction.

The level of service you provide reflects on your product

Having a great product simply isn’t enough. Often times customers abandon brands because the level of service they receive is simply not good enough. Shoppers want to feel appreciated for doing business with your company. Therefore, to avoid churn and increase conversions, it’s important to create a customer-centric culture within your business.

Reasons why companies choose LiveAgent

“It’s so rich in functions and beat my 5-year zendesk subscription. So I switched. Very good value for me as small business owner.” Albert

I first tried out Zendesk but after hours of configuration and understanding the price model i realized that it was not for me. Instead I started using LiveAgent and must say I’m so far very satisfied. The system got exactly the right amount of configuration that I want and I have not yet found something that is not possible to do. The support itself is great and usually answer your questions in a couple of minutes.” Erik

“We moved to LiveAgent from ZenDesk… and wouldn’t go back… It’s amazingly affordable pricing and always helpful support team who are their to help us 24×7. Secondly, the advanced level of automation which has literally replaced our need for Zapier as there’s good amount of integrations. Plus they also give so many alias emails to connect that too very easily.” Aaron

“We and our clients were constantly having trouble with ZenDesk, but after looking at different options, we chose LiveAgent based on user reviews and its price.” Adam

“I used ZenDesk for years and I was tired of these “ticket-style” emails and that I can’t attach files to my emails, only send links. What I like in LiveAgent: it sends emails (not tickets), I can attach files, organize the flow of emails easier than in ZenDesk, can chat and manage emails from the same window. Also, LiveAgent supports spreadsheets in its emails and has a great support team.” Vlad

“We switched to this system after many years of using ZenDesk. The functionality is awesome: contact forms, live chat, databases, integration with social networks – all in one service and all these modules are well thought out and competently interact with each other. I liked that the service works stably even on mobile platforms (after ZenDesk this is a huge plus for us).” Olga

“Tried various solutions including Zendesk, Freshdesk and more. Then found LiveAgent. Great tool, good value for money, ease to use, great support and help to implement. And now, after several years of use, it is still the best choice for support tool that we could have done.” Michal

“I have used many other help desk system before such as LiveZilla, Zopim, Zendesk, Freshdesk, Desk.com, and etc. LiveAgent has beaten them in every way due to its pricing, features, customer support, and mobile features.” Harrison
