We created AT&T Plus – a programmatic approach to anticipating and surprising customers with tangible benefits they never had to ask for that included insider information on technology, waived fees, front-of-the-line service, discounts, tickets, access to special events including marquee sports and entertainment events and a dedicated customer service number for any/all of their needs. Distinct AT&T Plus branding on highly personalized direct mail, email, landing page/website,mobile application, newsletters and MMS.

As a result of our efforts, 70% of customers who participated said it improved their opinion of AT&T. Over 30% of the participating customers said that, because of the program, they would definitely not switch to a new mobile provider. 20% of targeted customers moved from definitely wanting to change network providers to being unlikely to switch and 10% of active program participants who were previously brand neutral became brand promoters.We anticipated a 25% participation rate and gained 40% awareness and active participation in the program.

Design of the AT&T Plus logo and campaign visuals established what we knew about our aspirational target: active, technology-savvy, and ahead-of-the-curve on all things mobile. We are particularly proud of the creative’s ability to reflect AT&T’s existing voice in the category while making best customers feel different from everyone else. We developed long-form content that was smart and gave AT&T Plus members sneak previews of new technology/offerings before the general population had access. We used unique, but familiar, devices to engage and create the most intuitive-human-experience possible. Our campaign provided a wireless experience customers didn’t know they could have.

Client Brief Or Objective
People are attached to their mobile-devices, but don’t necessarily feel the same way about their carrier. AT&T saw this as an opportunity to distinguish themselves among their very-best-customers. We set out to demonstrate that AT&T understands the importance of the consumer/carrier relationship. The audience was current high value AT&T customers. We learned how to delight customers with benefits, services, experiences, content and tangible rewards throughout their membership, when they least expect it, with the hope of improving their opinion of AT&T and their willingness to promote - two dimensions that translate into profit and loyalty.
