Are you on a website, have a few questions in your head and no one to ask? Do you want to write an email or fill out a contact form when you know you have to wait for a response? The answer to this question is very rarely "yes". With a high probability, you will leave the site and find the goods elsewhere.

If you own an e-shop or other site with the possibility of selling goods or services, imagine how many potential customers on your website reacted similarly and you lost them. Case studies indicate that it is an average of 7% of daily traffic.

How to reduce the bounce rate and increase sales?

Do you know that: "He kept humming at me for so long that I bought it"? Certainly yes, any good merchant or seller in a brick-and-mortar store will confirm to you, that the salesman's best weapon against customer lethargy is communication.

You don't have many options on the web, unless you want to bombard the user with pop-up windows to register, claim a discount, etc. This method cannot compete with online chat in any way - when the user needs to know something, he asks himself and does not feel that you are restricting him. After all, not every site visitor came to your website purposefully, someone could just get lost, and you will discourage them with similar practices, so that they will not click on your site next time.

For example, what words he searched for in the search engine, where the visitor is from, etc.

You can take advantage of all these benefits even if your chat is offline, but you are thus preparing yourself for the possibility of direct interaction with a potential customer and again you put the visitor in the position of whether he wants to wait for your delayed reaction.
