Have you been traveling the world of e-commerce with a blindfold on? Have you been walking into virtual walls, missing out on the opportunity to combine e-commerce transactions and video chat, enabling you to see the real faces of your customers—and enabling them to see you, building trust and legitimacy with the touch of a button? You might not have realized it, but new technology is combining live video, social media, and financial transactions to make a lean, mean, real time face-to-face e-commerce experience. While the connectivity aspect of this technology erases the geographic disadvantages of brick-and-mortar stores, the ability to see eye-to-eye with your customers is making huge improvements to customer service. It’s bringing online companies closer to the people who use them. It’s a win for everybody.

Studies have shown that eye contact has many, many benefits. In the brick-and-mortar business world, it’s a huge part of customer service, from restaurants to banks to clothing stores. In 2012, a pivotal study in Computers in Human Behavior showed that being able to make eye contact via video chat showed a dramatic drop in online hostility. There’s real value in being able to see someone’s face, and ConnectExpert can add that value to your practice.
We provide plenty of bandwidth, and all the technology you need to get started fielding video calls. Before long, you’ll be nurturing personal relationships with your clients. If the internet has taught us anything, it’s the importance of reputation: the success of everything, from browsers and apps to eBay sellers and Amazon Marketplace hinges on reputation. All these e-commerce venues are going to be able to integrate video chat into their businesses in the near future. Missing out on adopting this technology soon would be a tremendous mistake: the equivalent of opting out of being listed on Google—Google for video e-commerce.
