The Responsibilities Of a Chat Leader
Ask anyone that plays online bingo and they will tell you just how important chat leaders really are. Typically chat leaders play games, joke with other players, resolve disputes and help players with site and software issues. Since online bingo games take place 24/7 chat leaders must work in shifts. When playing you can expect to meet many chat leaders. Some players will only play if their favorite chat leader is on duty. Online bingo operators know that a good chat leader is worth their weight in gold. Many people think that being a chat leader is an easy job but nothing could be further from the truth.
Chat leaders must be passionate about bingo. They must be friendly no matter how they feel and must possess excellent people skills. Chat leaders have become so important to the online bingo sector that there is actually an annual contest for chat leader of the year. When asked most chat leaders will tell you that the job is a lot harder than they expected. The responsibilities of a chat leader include making sure all of the games are working smoothly and if not fix the problem or bring it to the attention of the appropriate person. Chat leaders must be amusing enough to maintain a regular player base and keep players coming back for more.
Chat leaders are on the front lines and are the usually the first person players will meet. They represent the brand and can make or break a site. If players have an unpleasant bingo experience they are likely to go elsewhere to play. Chat leaders cannot have 'bad' days and if they are having one cannot show it. Online bingo operators are always looking for hard working happy people that care about the quality of their work. A good chat leader keeps players coming back while a bad one can easily drive customers away. This reduces the site's profitability.
Chat leaders must also be familiar with game software and how it works. For example chat leaders need to know how the different browsers affect the performance of the game software. A game may work well in Firefox but may not work well with Google Chrome. Chat leaders also need to know how payment software works so they can guide new players through the depositing process. Chat leaders need to be available for their entire shift and cannot take any breaks. The job of a chat leader is harder than most people think it is.
