You walk into a retail store. A salesperson approaches you, asks you questions, tries to understand your needs, and then recommends a perfect product based on your responses.

In another case, you go to a shop, and the sales rep directly slaps you with the plethora of products they have at the store.

What do you like more?

The first case, right?

And this is how every customer experience must be personalized, whether it is in-store or via chats!

In today’s world, where more and more customers are purchasing online, chats replace physical representatives. Even customers love it! Statistics suggest that nearly 63% of the customers would return to a website that offers chat support.

Despite the chat’s popularity, surprisingly, most of the chat conversations are impersonal. However, the brands that tailor messages to the user’s real-time behavior, location, interests, etc., outperform others. Thanks to companies like Amazon, buyers are expecting personalized messages at all touchpoints.

But there’s nothing to worry about! You, too, can personalize chat and carve a niche for yourself amidst the cutthroat market competition. Check out the proven tips-

Establish Stronger Connections

Who doesn’t love to be called by their names? Even as you offer support through chat, it is no excuse for you to skip your customer’s username while addressing them. Welcome customers like they are your old friends, even if it means going ahead and tapping into their location.

When you see where they are located, you can speak their language, greet them in a familiar way, and provide them with more reasons to stick around.
