Online chat replaces a consultant in a brick-and-mortar store. If users have questions, it is easier for them to write to a live chat or have a conversation with an online consultant, rather than wait for an answer by email or phone. The faster your users receive a response, the faster they will make a purchase decision.

Here are some other benefits of online chats:

• Contactual information collection and lead generation
• Objections tackling. An operator can answer the question and also dispel all the user’s doubts about a product or service.

Personalization is another key aspect of live chat interactions. It aims to provide a tailored response to every customer but doesn’t neglect automation capabilities, such as templates and hotkeys, to streamline the workflow.
How can free live chat increase the conversion rate for business?
While writing an email or making a phone call diverts the customer's attention from a website, decreasing the chances of them returning to it later, a live chat widget embedded right on the webpage is a great way to provide support and gain the trust of new clients, directing them from brand discovery to registration or checkout. Live chat’s convenience and fast responses lead to greater customer loyalty and the development of long-term relationships between them and the brand.
