3 PREPAID LOYALTY: FACT OR FICTION? 3 Executive Summary Achieving customer loyalty is a business goal shared by virtually every type of service provider. Prepaid subscribers, however, present a greater challenge due to the transient nature of the business model, i.e. no contracts or commitments combined with limited customer data. With this in mind, this paper examines the business and marketing strategies that service providers can deploy to create and build loyalty among prepaid customers. Introduction: the prepaid loyalty challenge FACT: Service providers have long known that they must establish long-term, profitable relationships with their customers. This is generally possible when they have a wealth of demographic and usage information at their disposal such as the customer s age and socioeconomic background, as well as spending and billing patterns. Add the mechanisms of long-term contracts, minimum commitment and early termination fees, and growing loyalty seems to be within the reach of most service providers. As highlighted in Figure 1, prepaid presents a completely different challenge. How do providers create and nurture long-term relationships with customers when they don t even have their names and addresses? Prepaid customers enjoy the simplicity and freedom of no commitments or contracts. Joining a service provider is as simple as buying a SIM card from the local grocery store. In addition, prepaid subscribers in many high growth markets are low-spend customers (in countries such as Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia, and India the average prepaid revenue per user is less than $6 a month), which limits the marketing resources that service providers are willing to invest in retention. The result: constant prepaid customer churn. Indonesia, for example has one of the highest churn rates at over 10% a month, while the Philippines has almost 5% monthly churn on average. How then are service providers supposed to create and encourage loyalty from a prepaid customer base that is able to churn at will? FIGURE 1: KEEPING CUSTOMERS IN THE POT The Prepaid Loyalty Challenge FREQUENT, RECURRING USAGE NO CONTRACT FIERCE COMPETITION NO COMMITMENT LOW SPEND, PRICE SENSITIVE LIMITED CUSTOMER DATA FREEDOM OF CHOICE
4 PREPAID LOYALTY: FACT OR FICTION? 4 Effective strategies for prepaid loyalty In a recent study of prepaid service providers in Asia Pacific (APAC) (Informa Telecoms & Media s Global Mobile Prepaid Industry Survey, June 2008) the following reasons were given as major contributors toward prepaid churn: cheaper prepaid rates; new handset availability; value added services; and bundled offers. Add to this the relative ease of buying and activating new prepaid SIM cards and it s clear that service providers have a real churn battle on their hands. However, there are retention and loyalty strategies that service providers can put into place to stem the churn of prepaid customers and offer a different, unique experience. Better rates don t just mean cheaper rates Many service providers in competitive markets cater to price. What s more, with prices dropping to less than 1 cent a minute for prepaid voice calls, overall revenues are negatively impacted as well. One loyalty strategy that has emerged in the Indian market is the lifetime guarantee of prepaid rates. Reliance, Airtel and Vodafone, among others, offer a lifetime prepaid rate where, in addition to offering low rates, they also guarantee these rates over an extended period of time. Customers are more likely to stay with their provider if they know that the rates on offer will not change while they remain a customer.. FIGURE 2: DIGI PREPAID A similar trend can be found in Malaysia where service providers have focused on extending the validity period of the prepaid balance in addition to the rates as well. Providers such as Maxis and Digi offer prepaid plans which extend the validity of the prepaid balance to a full year once the customer has topped up by a certain amount. The potential risk with these strategies, however, is that it s relatively easy to copy and once every service provider guarantees lifetime rates or extended balance period validity, the real differentiator again becomes price. Service providers need to introduce more innovative, creative pricing models that not only differentiate, but also provide real value to customers without necessarily jeopardizing long-term revenues. An example of such a model is to base prepaid rates on customers consumption patterns, like True Thailand s Short Call Package for prepaid users who make frequent, yet short, calls. By using a stepped prepaid rating tariff, customers who join the plan pay a reduced rate for the first minute of each call. True also utilizes period sensitive prepaid tariffs such as their Nighttime and Daytime Buffets which allow users to enjoy reduced rates based on whether they use their prepaid phones more frequently during the day or night. Not only does this deliver more focused tariffs, it also gives customers more choice in terms of the pricing options available to them. Orange in Switzerland uses the same rating principle in a different fashion by offering prepaid customers half price rates from the second minute of each call. This pricing model encourages prepaid usage while offering a clear benefit to customers. Other providers have launched stop the clock style prepaid rating where a call is only charged up to a certain threshold and the rest of the call is free of charge. Vodafone enjoyed success with their Stop the Clock offer across prepaid markets in Ireland, the UK and the Netherlands. The basic logic of the offer was that prepaid customers would only pay for the first three minutes of the call and the remaining minutes up to an hour would be free of charge. Digicel in Barbados has launched similar prepaid plans for both local and long distance calling.
5 PREPAID LOYALTY: FACT OR FICTION? 5 Not only is this pricing a strong differentiator, it also encourages prepaid users to make calls of longer duration. Remember, better pricing does not necessarily mean the lowest price. Service providers who are in tune with their customers needs and consumption habits can use this information to create attractive offers and build loyalty. FIGURE 3: TRUE THAILAND SHORT CALL PACKAGE Third generation (3G) networks as well as the emerging Long Term Evolution standards (LTE) have unleashed a host of new services such as video calling, mobile broadband, high-speed downloads and mobile television. While these types of services were traditionally reserved for postpaid customers, service providers have quickly realized that these services aware just as attractive to prepaid customers and can serve as a strong differentiator in the market. Companies such as M1 in Singapore, CAT Telecom in Thailand and Telkomsel in Indonesia now offer 3G services to their prepaid customers. And, who can ignore the phenomenon of the Apple iphone as an example of how a handset can attract and retain millions of customers? Originally pitched as a high-end smart phone for postpaid users willing to sign a multi-year contract, today prepaid service providers like Maxis in Malaysia and Telkomsel in Indonesia are offering their prepaid customers the handset together with next-generation services such as web browsing, GPS navigation and services. Don t hold out on prepaid customers Prepaid customers have not always been exposed to the same range of services as postpaid customers due their transient or risky nature. As prepaid markets have matured, service providers have come to understand that prepaid should be viewed more as a payment method and less of a customer type. There is no technological barrier to exposing the entire range of network services and handsets to prepaid customers, and this can serve as a powerful tool for increasing loyalty. Other service providers like Smart in the Philippines are taking advantage of the huge popularity in social networking to launch new prepaid services like Smart Buddy which allows prepaid users to upload pictures from their prepaid phone to their Facebook account. Orange in the UK, among other prepaid service providers, now offers prepaid subscribers free access to Facebook, Bebo and MySpace. Giving prepaid subscribers access to the latest services and handsets not only provides a better customer experience but is also a powerful tactic for brand positioning. Both of these can support the goal of customer retention and loyalty.
6 PREPAID LOYALTY: FACT OR FICTION? 6 FIGURE 4: SMART BUDDY SERVICES It s all in the packaging Another effective strategy that service providers can deploy to grow loyalty is to offer more targeted, personalized packages and bundles to prepaid customers. This strategy goes beyond just pricing and services and focuses on the range of market offerings available to prepaid customers. Zem in Pakistan is a good example of this strategy and offers prepaid customers a wide variety of offers based on different strategies (see chart below): Such strategies work well in prepaid dominated markets where segmentation is one of the keys to differentiation in a highly competitive market. In more mature prepaid markets, a different type of service packaging is emerging based on the opposite principle simplicity. Cricket Mobile in the United States offers customers one of the simplest packages available in the form of unlimited, daily price plans: $1 a day for unlimited voice; $2 a day for voice and SMS, and so on. This strategy focuses on the growing move toward unlimited price plans but also gives customers flexibility to choose which services to include. Customers can change their package on a daily basis, and there is no charge on days where the phone is not used. Other providers such as AT&T Mobility have started offering similar unlimited, prepaid daily packages as well. What differentiates the packages in this case is that customers have better visibility into what they are paying for, ultimately providing a better customer experience. Offering attractive, appealing packages and bundles gives customers greater choice and satisfaction, and this is a powerful driver of loyalty.

Alternatively, service providers may use blanket promotions that target as wide a range of subscribers as possible generally by focusing on lower rates or additional top-up bonuses. While these promotions are successful in attracting customers, they may be less successful in growing long-term loyalty. Prepaid service providers can better utilize their real-time charging systems to introduce more targeted, relevant and immediate promotions. One option is to implement a promotion which provides a benefit based on specific use of a service. This can be a very effective technique to promote the uptake of a specific service while still targeting loyalty by providing the customer with a benefit. A good example of this is a promotion run by Singtel in Singapore where prepaid customers receive four free minutes with every four minute call. This type of promotion utilizes real-time accumulators to trigger the promotion or benefit. The advantage here is that the benefit is provided in return for usage rather than simply when a customer decides to top-up. Digi in Malaysia recently launched their RM1 promotion where prepaid customers receive reduced rates on SMS and voice calls once they spend a certain amount on SMS during the day. Combining this idea with real-time notifications can lead to an even more effective promotion since subscribers receive updated information on their progress toward the required consumption target. Another powerful promotion strategy is to offer a nonusage benefit which may be more attractive or relevant to subscribers. Maxis in Malaysia, for example, introduced a new promotion that offers prepaid customers the chance to win an exclusive handbag. Customers need to make calls of at least three minutes between a specific set of dates the more calls, the higher the chance of winning the handbag. This promotion is effective because the reward is targeted and relevant; it drives consumption of a particular service; and it establishes a relationship with the customer over time. FIGURE 5: DIGI PREPAID PROMOTION
8 PREPAID LOYALTY: FACT OR FICTION? 8 Offer the best of both worlds Another effective strategy that service providers can deploy to grow loyalty is to offer more targeted, personalized packages and bundles to prepaid customers. This strategy goes beyond just pricing and services and focuses on the range of market offerings available to prepaid customers. Zem in Pakistan is a good example of this strategy and offers prepaid customers a wide variety of offers based on different strategies (see chart below): Such strategies work well in prepaid dominated markets where segmentation is one of the keys to differentiation in a highly competitive market.

Other providers such as AT&T Mobility have started offering similar unlimited, prepaid daily packages as well. What differentiates the packages in this case is that customers have better visibility into what they are paying for, ultimately providing a better customer experience. Offering attractive, appealing packages and bundles gives customers greater choice and satisfaction, and this is a powerful driver of loyalty. FIGURE 6: HYBRID CONSUMPTION MODEL POSTPAID Fixed Payment (monthly) Monthly Bill Yearly Contract Fixed Payment (monthly) Purchase Credit as Needed (pay as you go) No Monthly Bills No Contract PREPAID Purchase Credit as Needed (pay as you go) No Monthly Bills No Contract Subsidized Handset SIM Only or Full Price Handset Monthly Service Allowance (voice, text, data) Monthly Allowance (voice, text, data) Immediate Service Charge (per minute, KB, MMS) Sophisticated Services Additional Services Charged Per Unit Basic Services
9 PREPAID LOYALTY: FACT OR FICTION? 9 This hybrid model can be taken one step further by combining prepaid and postpaid services in the same offering framework such as a family plan. This type of hybrid model offers the best of both worlds for customers, delivering an even more powerful value proposition and driving long term loyalty through a combination of: FIGURE 7: DG FAMILY - PREPAID/POSTPAID BUNDLING EXAMPLE Recurring monthly payments Monthly quota of services (voice, data, etc.) Bundled prepaid lines with automatic monthly top-up from the postpaid account Free calls and SMS between family members regardless of whether they are pre or postpaid Digi in Malaysia recently launched their Digi Family offer based on this hybrid model (see Figure 8) and Cosmofon in Slovenia has a similar family offering. These new hybrid business and consumption models deliver an attractive offering to prepaid customers which extend beyond the boundaries of pure prepaid services. This blending of prepaid control with a postpaid experience can serve as a powerful differentiator and grow customer loyalty.
10 PREPAID LOYALTY: FACT OR FICTION? 10 How do charging systems fit in? Conclusion Implementing these types of marketing and business models obviously demands the required functionality and flexibility in business support systems, as well as the business processes and expertise to ensure rapid time to market. With competition becoming fiercer in high-growth as well as developed markets, time to market is more crucial than ever. Service providers must ensure that their real-time charging systems work to enable rapid, continuous launching of new services and promotions by providing several key design elements as outlined below. Prepaid loyalty is not a myth By proactively approaching customers with relevant, immediate promotions, service providers can offer a more creative and rewarding experience for users. By using creative pricing, innovative services, attractive bundles and relevant promotions, prepaid service providers can build long lasting relationships with their customers, growing loyalty and ultimately revenues as well.
