What our customers are saying


At a Glance: Live Chat Operator

Quality customer service is a cornerstone of success for many businesses. When it comes to scaling your customer support operation, online live chats—initiated with customers directly through your website—can be a powerful way to boost sales and spot any potential problems on the site at the same time. Having an agent who’s skilled at interacting with customers directly, who can leave them feeling positive about the experience, is a win-win for your business.

Many of the professionals on Upwork who have live chat operator experience come from tech support and customer service backgrounds. These online representatives can use live chat to greet and engage with customers who visit your site. They can juggle multiple chat sessions at the same time. Beyond providing a major touchpoint for your business, they can also offer product information and buying advice that helps boost sales, or troubleshoot issues for customers. Live chat operators can also direct customers to the support desk or the sales team for more personal service if needed.
