How do you find the best Live Chat Agents?

Do you need live chat agents in CITY to provide customer support and lead generation 24/7?


You have Live Chat, but your team doesn’t work 24/7, and you don’t have enough agents to cover your volume (long wait times = bad reviews). You may want to consider managed live chat agents–as a service. However, they are not all the same…

  • No metrics. They can’t tell you the prospect’s geography, no visitor tracking, no reporting dashboard, or chat storage—no push email reports.Of course not–it would show off their poor agent support, and you can’t improve what you don’t track.
  • Some have bad agents. Some can’t speak good English. They “say” they’re 24/7… but have 10% staffing during “your prime hours” with LONG wait times. Others are too lightweight for your product type (not vetted and trained, no agent coaching, or dedicated agent options).
  • Poor quality assurance. Their live chat agents don’t get high ratings, the company has too much system downtime, and they don’t have an adequate training process.
  • Difficult setup. Managed agents use software on your system—but the other company doesn’t help you set it up. “They” don’t have good support, it takes too long, they want an annual commitment, and the “setup” price is often hidden in CITY.
  • Wimpy Software. Many will try to manage your support with home-spun or weak systems: it won’t do mobile, can’t translate languages, no chat bots (self-serve to reduce live help needs)—the team is not provisioned with the right tools.
  • Too Pricey. Their live chat agents cost is embarrassingly high, or they have “surprise” charges when you accidentally exceed your chat volume.

So, how do you find a superior managed chat service, whose agents don’t have accents, has short weight times, with excellent ratings and metrics, and have little downtime? One that also helps you get things set up quickly and properly in City, uses the best-of-breed systems, all at a price within reach? Perhaps you should consider…

Live Chat Agents

Your Old Life

Your prospect comes to your website after hours on a Friday. Nobody picks up the phone. There’s a dusty old chat—the lights are on, but nobody is home. So… they leave an email.

Late Monday, three (3) days later, customer support sees the email and sends a reply asking for basic information. Really? The prospect sees their email, but it’s after 5 pm their time—and again… customer support isn’t live… again.  Too late. The prospect moves to a competitor in CITY who buys their product AND leaves you a bad review on Yelp.

Loser – Life Sucks

Live chat agent

Your New Life

Your client comes to your website on Friday after hours but this time is proactively greeted with “Hi how can we help you today?”

The bot takes their basic information, but this time—one of your LIVE chat agents, trained 24/7 agents takes over the chat. Your agent sends a screenshot and a link to another product that will make their life easier. The system automatically logs the lead in your Zoho CRM. The prospect is intrigued—and told Sales will follow up on Monday.

Sales see the lead in Zoho, follows up and cha-ching, “Got another sale!” You hit your quota. Can you spell B.O.N.U.S!

Life is Good!
