  • Looking into the future’s great but people are at the heart of everything a service brand should do.
  • Customer service isn’t about call centres etc.
    O2 by definition is a service brand; its products are services (e.g. BB, Phones etc.)
    Great customer service means making the services offered by O2 more customer-centric in the first place.
  • Nokia Money as simple and convenient as making a voice call or sending an SMS.
    They’ve had mobile payments for 10 years in Japan.
    Africam Vodafone biggest bank Kenya
    Micropayments
    Why doesn’t my money go further in O2 stores and venues. 5% cheaper.

  • Talk about NatWest ad
  • 24 hour amazing support on phone or online, 365 days to return
  • AMAZON, great user experience, fast delivery, no quibbles return
  • brilliant technology & seamless support, the marketing is the product
  • Last years broadband launch was all about how good it is but the reality is every provider can quote an award they’ve won.
  • real, knowledgable people. It works because they all own the company. It’s a partnership.
  • Passionate staff.
    Hilton, show, don’t tell.
    Free support and free data transfer from PC, removing barriers to entry
    They like giving people knowledge, turning people into fans
  • Gift economy
  • ZYB Freemium, 360 aggregates all your contacts and social networks but the cool thing is they offer it to everyone. FREEMIUM
  • Orange Film App for all. Still the most popular mobile promotion in the UK ever.
  • Google have just sponsored free wifi across over 200 airports in the US from Nov til Jan. Making people’s lives easier
  • Nike creates events and technologies which encourage training and community. You don’t have to be a Nike consumer to take part. It’s open to everyone, they just offer it free to entice you in.
    Nike Training Club & Nike Plus great for getting data on users which creates a stronger relationship.
  • So the challenge for O2 is:
    In such a commoditised environment the price and services are pretty similar so it tends to be cost based.
  • We have to turn into..... This means transforming the way consumers percieve us from BOTH PRE to POST SALE.
  • Imagine getting a phone bill was a thrill.

    My phone knows more about me than anything else in the world. The data is interesting, make a social map, here’s who you’ve talk to most often, most, keeps talking for hours, here’s the top numbers. Bingo card for numbers and tells you who you haven’t rung, you need to tick them off. Why shouldn’t the bill be exciting to open?

  • Once VIOP moves to the fore there’ll be no real difference between data, voice, sms, photo or any other media transferred. We’ll need to monetise the data, similar to how amazon A3 does.
