July 17, 2013

TWC Sees 10% Sales Increase through Mobile

CHICAGO, July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — How can businesses quickly and successfully integrate mobile sales and services into their marketing operations, exposing new opportunities for growth and providing quality service to current customers where and when they want it? According to Time Warner Cable (TWC) Group Vice President of eCommerce & Interactive Marketing Rob Roy and Leapfrog Online Executive Vice President Cass Baker, who spoke at MediaPost’s mCommerce Summit in New York City on July 15, 2013, mobile can be a game changer in customer acquisition and service for businesses like Time Warner Cable.

The cable provider saw digital sales jump from 0% to 10% in the first three months of their mobile commerce campaign, and mobile continues to represent a significant and growing percentage of their business. By creating a consumer-focused, integrated, end-to-end mobile sales program paired with geo-focused media buying to drive sales conversions, TWC quickly saw mobile’s potential to deliver new customers and provide better customer care to existing ones.

“So far we’ve continued to see nothing but upside to mobile,” says Roy, who worked with partner Leapfrog Online to rapidly build, deploy, and grow TWC’s mobile commerce operation. “We haven’t come close to seeing the limit of mobile’s value as a strategy for driving new customer revenue, as well as improved customer service, both in terms of quality and efficiency.”

“We did our homework up-front and committed to delivering the right experience for mobile shoppers – from the minute they interacted with the Time Warner Cable brand all the way through to purchase,” says Baker, Leapfrog Online’s Executive Vice President.
