  14. 14. Cell-Life and MXit Background : In South Africa their are many more cellphones than landlines. The National Aids Helpline (NAHL) is free to call from a landline, but regular cellphone rates apply. It ’ s expensive to call from a private cellphone, or people have to make use of public phones which are often within earshot of others. Problem: It ’ s expensive and invasive to call the NAHL Solution: Leverage MXit, a mobile messaging service with over 20MM users. To allow young adults to receive HIV counseling via text, which is more efficient, private, and cost effective. “ Splash screen ” ads were used to drive initial awareness of the campaign. Results: 4000% increase in number of people using the service. Counsellors were able to handle 10+ conversations at a time. Hoax calls decreased dramatically. All at a cost of only $35,000
  15. 15. Red Cross in Haiti Problem: In January 2010 a massive earthquake devastated much of Haiti. The Red Cross needed a way to quickly collect donations that would engage a large number of people. Solution : Within a few hours, mGive had teamed up with the Red Cross to implement what would become the most successful mobile giving campaign to date. By texting “ HAITI ” to 90999 people could donate $10. The campaign propagated throughout all media channels. Results: Within five days the campaign had raised over $22 MM. By June 2010, it had raised over $41 MM. 14% of donations to Haiti came via text, more than television or email. 95% of text donations were from first time donors to the Red Cross. Over 20K text donors opted in to the Red Cross ’ email list.
  16. 16. Mobile matters in emerging markets More than 1/3 of the African population has a mobile plan, with some areas reaching almost 2/3 market penetration. 20% of Kenyans have access to grid electricity, but mobile subscriber penetration stands at over 42%. By 2015: Only 32% of the population is expected to be connected to the grid, but mobile penetration will have reached 75%.
