Pre Sale Customer Support For Online Retailers Use Case

Some men have a difficult time finding matching socks let alone putting together a complete outfit that stands out in the crowd of a red carpet event. Tyler, an up and coming independent music producer, was invited to his first big industry event and he’s a bit lost on what to wear. Since he isn’t at the level of having his own stylist, he goes online to start doing some research.

While browsing a website that specialized in bow ties, Tyler was completely overwhelmed. He added and removed a number of bow ties and still couldn’t make a decision. On the back-end a customer support agent who could track Tyler’s clicks reached out to him through a pop-up that read “Need to Talk to a Personal Stylist?” Knowing that he needed the help, Tyler clicked on the customer support button and activated a support session with a sales representative.

The support session escalated from a chat to a video call where the sales representative could talk through the purchasing decision with Tyler in real time. After a few minutes of fashion consultation, Tyler decided to purchase a bow tie along with a matching pocket square for his suit jacket and a new belt. The potential for losing a customer was reduced once the video session was initiated. The sales representative even upsold the customer into the sale of more products increasing the amount of sales generated during the transaction.
