High value personalised communications

The Challenge

Vertu's customers are incredibly discerning, and expect only the very best service.

Our challenge was to create and deliver a programme of highly personalised communications that would stimulate more handset purchases and greater use of the Vertu services.

Our Approach

We developed a clearer articulation of the customer proposition by creating 'Vertu Life': "first class lifestyle events, destinations and experiences curated exclusively for Vertu owners" which brought together all of the Vertu owner benefits under a single proposition.

This enabled us to communicate them more effectively. 

We then defined the desired customer experience at each and every touch-point online, in-store and in print, all of which could be personalised through the owner profile, the profile consisting of handset ownership, service adoption, take-up and usage.

Our Solution

The communications we created consisted of:

  • On phone registration sign up
  • 'Nursery' programme introducing new services to new owners
  • Personalised service renewal letters
  • Highly personalised product launches
  • Targeted new model launches
  • Social media campaigns to reach prospective owners

The Outcome

The communications resulted in a substantial return on investment, with higher levels of multiple phone ownership, more service usage and higher levels of service renewals.
