Competition between the telecoms industry’s cable and fixed line, mobile network operators and mobile virtual network operators has never been greater. While there is ever more choice on availability of devices and network band combined with tariff structures for every conceivable need, such differences between suppliers and handset manufacturers can soon be dissipated. Telecoms companies are, more than ever before, in need of finding new ways of differentiating their respective offerings.
The latest strategy being pursued to meet the challenge of the commoditisation of mobile services is that of driving customer experience as a point of difference. As today’s customers social media use goes into overdrive fixed line operators, MNOs and MVNOs now need to look to social media to deliver the type of differentiated experiences that translate to long-term customer loyalty.
However, social media remains a relatively new and complex landscape with many telecoms companies still unsure about how best to use this fluid means of communication. This conference will address how to measure the effectiveness and ROI of social media campaigns and strategy by looking at measures of customer loyalty, customer service, and improved brand perception that deliver increases on ARPU (average revenue per user) and CLV (customer lifetime value).
Challenges covered will include:
- Opportunity response rates - how to discover and respond to opportunities in social media
- Channel reporting – determining how many visits, leads, and customers individual social media channels are generating
- Improving customer response rates in social media – a new paradigm in customer service
- Virality – how far and what impact is your social media strategy having?
- Net promoter scores – how useful is this metric and how do you translate positive scores into revenue?
At Social Media in Telecoms an international line up of speakers will bring their insight and experience to the following topics:
