Sub numbers and usage were published by Vodafone in March 2008. With 60 thousand users by March 08, in a population of only 10 million, it’s proportionally 4-5 times more successful than Blyk!!
  8. 8. Why advertise around SMS and voice? Interactive mobile ads presented while people are already using the services they actually use can create a mobile advertising platform with real scale. Market Growth This is the overall market potential of mobile advertising Frog2Frog’s interactive ads appear while users compose SMS and as they dial for a voice call Most effort is going here..............?

  22. 22. Business Model (Free SMS service) Main effects - overview <ul><li>1. Each F2F user is more profitable than they were before </li></ul><ul><li>Stimulation effect of free offer >> increased usage </li></ul><ul><li>Advertising income (+ discount SMS price) > original income </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce churn </li></ul></ul><ul><li>2. Acquire additional users through “FREE SMS” or discount offer </li></ul><ul><li>An unlimited free offer is far more compelling in the market than the typical conditional free offer made today </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Clear offer, unmatchable by competition unless they also do ad-supported offer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be optimized for acquisition through choice of offer, distribution </li></ul></ul><ul><li>3. Maintain profitability of “normal” (non Frog) users </li></ul><ul><li>SMS prices are declining rapidly in many markets. The F2F service slows the revenue decrease in the overall market </li></ul><ul><li>Split market into “classic” and “ad-supported” </li></ul>Total User Base
  23. 23. 1 F2F user impact – stimulation (50% discount case) F2F users generate higher revenue AND higher income on ad-supported SMS than on regular offers. 100% free offers are most frequently considered “ Normal” SMS user revenue F2F user revenue 100 SMS x 7c per SMS NET monthly revenue € 7 * - illustrative prices, 7 cents per sms, 3.5c per sms on F2F service, ad price = 20 CPM, 75% booking ratio Outbound SMS plus Ad revenue 3.5c*100+(20CPM*2,3*100*0.75) ‏ Increased SMS Interconnect Net revenue € 10-11 Stimulated Inbound SMS Substitution of Outbound voice Stimulated Inbound voice Stimulation of outbound SMS 3.5c*50 +20CPM*2,3*50*0.75
  24. 24. 2 Acquisition Impact - clarity Free service is more compelling than complex offers. From “What?” to “WOW!” PLUS, our ad-supported free SMS generates more revenue! <ul><li>Product A </li></ul><ul><li>x SMS free after 16hrs </li></ul><ul><li>y SMS to 3 friends </li></ul><ul><li>Product B </li></ul><ul><li>z SMS on-net </li></ul><ul><li>q SMS after €20 recharge </li></ul><ul><li>Product C </li></ul><ul><li>All the latest & coolest offers, and free SMS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>24 hrs per day </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>all networks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>FREE </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Simple, easy, free! </li></ul><ul><li>Product C will be more successful in acquisition and retention AND can generate more revenue!! </li></ul>
  25. 25. 3 SMS Price decline SMS prices are falling in many markets, with operators throwing revenues away. Why not get paid for Free SMS instead AND slow or stop overall declines? Base in Belgium Base offers unlimited SMS with their new “Mania” pre-paid offer, as long as the user recharges more than €15 per month. This is on-top of voice credit purchased with the €15 payment. Halebopp in Sweden Offers up to 3000 SMS per month for free with their new offer as long as the card is recharged. SMS are ~5cents after the 3000 SMS. Offer comes on top of call credit.
  26. 26. 3 SMS Price & Revenue sustained by ad financed SMS 20c 10c Interconnect 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 Price/SMS The bulk of SMS traffic and revenue continues on the red line, the SMS “Classic” Product. Presence of the green, discounted ad-supported service allows better ability to maintain prices on “Classic” products. By reversing or stopping price decline and introducing a revenue stimulating ad-supported offer, operators can see a double benefit. Ad income can increase over time as LB-ads, local ads, increased targeting, etc., impact impression prices. Most expensive offer Average billed /SMS Cheapest offer Average ad income
  27. 27. 3 Advertising financed SMS saves SMS revenues The impact of revenue protection from a dual “ad supported” and “classic” strategy could be €1-€2 per month across the whole relevant base. ~9c Starting SMS Price (2008) ‏ 100% SMS price discount on F2F offer 20 Ad price (CPM) ‏ 200,00% F2F stimulation (traffic increase) ‏ 7,0% SMS price decrease per year in ad-supported/classic scenario 12,0% SMS usage increase /yr, both classic and F2F 13,0% Price decrease SMS /yr, base case Inputs
