How to Solve your Web Chat Abandon Rate Problem

Every time a customer engages in a web chat you have an opportunity to make a sale.  If you’re a retailer with a web site, I bet you watch your web chat conversion rate like a hawk.  Improve the conversations you’re having with customers, and you can convert more chats to revenue. 

So what happens when customers get distracted or interrupted and leave the conversation?  Many retailers struggle with web chat abandon rates in double digits.  By focusing on the conversations you’re having instead of those that have been abandoned, you may be overlooking a treasure trove of revenue opportunity.  To find that hidden treasure, you’ve got to think like a parrot instead of a hawk.  Arrrrrrrrrrrr.

A Mindset for Digital Transformation

Customer engagement has changed; it’s never going back.  And it’s driving the need for digital transformation.

Like many, your organization may be stuck in the past, relying on old ways to engage with a new type of customer with dramatically different expectations.

It’s OK. That can work...for a little while.  And, it has to; it’s not easy to drive wholesale change across a large organization, especially when it can affect culture, technology, processes, and other things core to the fabric of your organization.

How to Solve the Mobile Customer Engagement Conundrum

These days, the answer to pretty much anything we want is just a tap or click away.  As the Harvard Business Review describes it, we live in a world of micro-moments, frequent moments in which we intensely want or need something such as a particular fact, destination, product, service, or activity; right here, right now.

Throughout the day, we frequently use mobile devices to check the Google Maps app for traffic updates, make a last minute reservation on Open Table for dinner that night, or calling your pharmacy to make sure your prescription is ready.

Grant These Three Wishes to Win the Hearts of Digital Consumers

Once upon a time, consumers were respectful of your time. As an enterprise, you could grant them access to your people on your terms.  Consumers would wait their turn and be glad to accept help from a sales associate or customer service representative when you were ready to provide it. 

Those were the days, huh?  It seems almost like a fairy tale now, because digital consumers have turned that world completely upside down.  They expect more, pay attention to you less, and behave so differently it’s hard to know when or where to engage them.

Star Wars Spoiler: Is The Force Awakens Really About Digital Engagement?

I have a surprise for you.

That new Star Wars movie?  It’s not what you expect.

It’s not about Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, or Chewbacca. And the new characters—Rey, Finn, Poe, and others? They are but a backdrop to the larger plot point: Digital engagement.

Think I’m not serious? Read these quotes from the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise and you might change your mind:

I Have a Bad Feeling About This: Avoidable Digital Engagement Mistakes

“I have a bad feeling about this.”

Sound familiar? It should...And, if you’re a Star Wars fan, it most certainly does.

Various versions of “I have a bad feeling about this” appear throughout all episodes of Star Wars. For me, the most memorable occurs in episode IV, the original Star Wars from 1977, when Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie find themselves jumping into the Death Star’s trash compactor in an attempt to evade stormtroopers and certain capture. It gets eerily silent, except for some creaking in the walls. Just before the walls start to close in on them, Han Solo is a soothsayer, “I got a bad feeling about this.”
