Maximising Online Revenue & Engagement
M.O.R.E. for your business with Chat2

Chat2 gives you the ability to directly engage with your website visitors in the moment that they are ready to buy.

Chat2 software is proven to:

  • Increase sales, direct bookings, and average order value by answering enquiries and leading the sales process in real-time.
  • Generate more enquiries from visitors who receive real-time problem-solving assistance providing conversion opportunities.
  • Benefit SEO with visitors spending longer on your website.
  • Create leads with the acquisition of customer contact details.
  • Improve response time and overall customer satisfaction leading to repeat visitation and loyal customers.
  • Suit customers as they prefer using live chat to email or phone.
  • Reduce labour costs associated with staff answering phone calls and emails by decreasing the amount of enquiries.

Chat2 is a single platform solution that enables you to engage with your website visitors so you can convert every customer, will never lose a lead, and drive direct sales.

Be there, be present, be innovative; proactively reach out online to customers on your website or Facebook Messenger. We will help you every step of the way.

Option: If you are time poor, unable to provide service around the clock, or customer engagement is not your strength, choose our Chat2 Concierge service. We provide a team of online engagement specialists available 24/7 who are there in the moment your online visitor is wanting to buy, so you never miss a lead, sale or opportunity.

Chat2 Concierge is very low cost/high value, and simple to activate. We provide a trial offer of 700 hours for $30 (USD) and a number of ongoing plans depending on your requirements. Sign up for Chat2 Concierge or request a demo here.
Or you can go it alone with your own team, though be aware online visitors are more demanding than ever for answers instantly. The online visitor does not wait around to receive answers so there is a high risk of missed opportunities. Chat2 Concierge helps businesses with this challenge as an alternative to DIY.
