How to process more conversations per day: case study of Mottor online platform
We asked our friends at Mottor to tell us how their support team is organized, why it’s important for users, and how Dashly tools help organize its work.ч
Mottor is a unique website builder with a simple and clear editor for web studios, entrepreneurs, and website builders with or without experience.
It allows you to quickly create a website of almost any complexity and solves any challenge that a website may face.
The target audience is about 500 thousand customers who are coming from advertising, a referral system, YouTube channels, and social media. These are mainly entrepreneurs, designers, and website developers.
They go through the funnel through registration, website creation, plan purchase, and configuration.
How is the Mottor support team organized?
The support team consists of 10 people and is divided into two teams: incoming and outgoing support. There is a team lead in each team who controls the operation in the chat, collaborates with the team, and updates the knowledge base. Specialists in the chat are divided into three support lines.
Both teams have a coach who works with the teams and develops the support team in general.
Processes, metrics, rituals: how the support team works
The support service is responsible for communication with users: it helps to get familiar with the service, feel its value, resolve issues, and prepare the website to launch more quickly.
The support team also gathers feedback and helps the whole team to develop a user-oriented product.
Within the company, customer support influences three indicators:
- Activation: a user will not buy a plan unless they have a ready website;
- Churn prevention: make sure that a user doesn’t leave us if something doesn’t work or a website doesn’t generate leads;
- Recommendations: how many people recommend the product.
The effectiveness of support is evaluated based on the number of dialogs processed by a specialist, the response time rate, and the quality of message processing.
User ratings help with the latter, but they are not always objective and most people do not give them at all.
Another ritual that allows the support team to monitor performance quality is regular internal dialog proofreading.
The support team have their own UPS (ultimate perfect solution); this is a document that describes the ideal support service from several points of view. The big objectives of this document are broken down into tasks that can be performed now.
How Mottor uses Dashly tools
For quality customer support, we needed a communication channel between the customer and the service to respond quickly and in real-time.
On average, the support team handles over 250 dialogs per day and communicates with users by phone approximately 10-20 times a day.
The typical dialogue is as follows: a customer describes a task like “I want to make this thing on my website”, and the support team helps them achieve the result.
Mottor actively uses automated chat messages to notify users about new features, special offers, and events (for example, weekly webinars), and bring them into the dialog depending on the event on the page.
The knowledge base helps the support team process user inquiries; agents often refer to instructions and teach customers to use the knowledge base on their own. There is a person in the team responsible for the knowledge base and the article writing plan.
This is what the Mottor knowledge base looks like:
