As many as three-quarters of website visitors abandon their shopping carts, and nearly 50% bounce from your site. Wouldn’t it be great if you could ‘read’ your website visitors’ body language while they are browsing – and better understand which visitors to profitably engage with and what they need to make those purchases? Think of the boost in sales!

The signals are there: one-third of online consumers who don’t complete their purchase say it’s because they wanted to engage with a live person first. Nearly half say that having a live person answer their questions during an online purchase is one of the most important features that a website could offer.

Join our eCommerce and conversion optimization experts as they explain how you can read your visitors’ ‘intent signals’ – accurately and instantly – to optimize website conversion. They’ll explore how live chat can increase visitor engagement and sales, and how you can determine which site visitors need a real person to give them a helping hand.

Attend this webinar and learn:

  • How to identify – and engage with – visitors who are more likely to convert.
  • How to track, measure and prove revenue lift with live chat.
  • Why more than 80% of brands will offer live chat online by the end of 2018.
