Here are some qualities of customer service agents which may serve you:

  1. Inquisitive

In hiring them, you should check if they are inquisitive and interested enough about the current state of your affairs.

A conscientious customer service agent wants to know the best ways of keeping your clients happy. They regard the customer experience with utmost care and it works if you allow them to learn as much about your company from the early stages. A customer service agent who is naturally inquisitive can improve how they approach the job.

  1. Passionate about ecommerce

They need to care enough about your industry to be able to work in it efficiently. It’s best to go for a customer service agent who not only is hapy to work on the job but they can deliver results based on their first hand knowledge of ecommerce.

If they care about this way of selling products, then there is a high chance that they’ll take the initiative in helping you achieve your goals. This is a way to ensure they speak the language of ecommerce and are familiar with online selling.

  1. Perfect American English

Perfect American English is essential in communicating to Westerners. The Philippines has a pool of impeccable English speakers and college graduates who are able to speak to Western customers. The thing about American English or a neutral accent in English is that it allows the speaker to communicate clearly to the customers thus providing them insights into the situation in a way that’s easily comprehensible.

  1. Multi-tasking

They need to be good at other things such as operating an information system and multi tasking. They won’t only be taking inbound calls or making outbound calls. They need to be excellent in working with the apps you have. This ensures that they will be savvy inside and out and they will know how to respond efficiently to customer requests and inquiries.

  1. Good at paraphrasing

If you want someone who’s a great communicator, they are good at paraphrasing without parroting the words of the original speaker.

They can convey ideas to make sure they understand what the speaker is saying and what they need. And this is crucial for any customer support representatives.

  1. Sales capacities

If they can’t find answers to the questions of clients they might do a search on competitor’s sites and cross check that with whatever products you are offering.

You may also utilize your customer service agents to perform outbound calls so they can be sure that sales are being met across all your items. They also need to be skilled in cross selling in case items which customers need are not available on the site. They can also provide alternative offers to clients who are looking for certain things.

  1. Capable of meeting quotas

If you want a customer service agent who’s going to do the best in meeting your quotas, then hire someone who is excellent at keeping track of your KPI’s. Those who are conscious about achieving the company metrics are likely to not only achieve the things you want them to but perform in a way where they keep your quotas in mind.
