Project Description


We have an online furniture retail store in Ireland and UK and there is an online help instant messenger where customers can click to ask questions from a LIVE person. We would like someone to provide this support UK time, we have 2 users working on this at the moment so this would be for an additional freelancer to come and work and fit into the schedule. Really the most important asset would be for the freelancer to sell well through our online "live chat" system on our web site. So the freelancer needs to have excellent written english and be very proactive and good sales people. Payment will be a basic hourly rate plus commission on all sales and leads generated for our office. We have freelancers in India right now earning $350 per week.

The customer that asks questions would like quality help where questions are answered correctly and with professionalism. This is a SALES task and the customer is judging the company by the speed of the response as well as the quality. The answers must be in perfect FULL UK English and worded in a friendly and helpful manner.

Where an answer is not known i am happy for the freelancer to ask for a email or tel number and say that they will receive a reply in the morning.

The instant messenger software will automatically send a full transcript of the chat to an operator within our company. And we can take it from there.

Knowledge is a important aspect of this work and this is gathered as weeks and months pass, so i would like there is be a small group or an individual working on this project where they can learn about our company and be in a position to better answer the queries.

The instant messaging software can be linked to the following:

MSN Messanger

Google Talk

Pigeon Messenger

And many others.

Many freelancers just send a offer without even reading this specification so if you are replying please use the word "CatNip" in the message so i know you have actually read this.

Perfect english will be essential.

Proven history.
