QUICK STATS: LATE-BILL ALERT GETS ACCOUNT-HOLDER ATTENTION

An in-browser message targeted to a subscriber account will display on the first connected device that actively browses.  For many outreach messages from the ISP, especially regarding usage, upgrades, or billing, it’s important to reach the account holder.  One way to find them is to simply ask!  One of PerfTech’s ISP customers did just that, beginning a late-bill message with “Are you the account holder?” and including “Yes” and “No” response options.  If the busy viewer bypasses the message by browsing to another tab or closing the current tab without responding, the message is redelivered at the next opportunity.

 PerfTech followed the campaign for 3 months, beginning in December of 2018, with these results: Read more…

MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY (YOUR SUBSCRIBER)

LOYALTY PERKS MAKE FOR A GOOD CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

From September 2018 to January 2019, one of PerfTech’s large ISP customers launched a series of short-run message campaigns designed both to reward and please their subscribers. A total of 14 loyalty message campaigns, each delivered during time windows of 4 to 12 days, were staggered during approximately 5 months. The content of the messages varied, but generally announced a free promotional offering through the end of the year of a channel or service, such as Disney or HBO, or a free permanent inclusion of something new, such as the Tennis Channel. Subscribers were under no obligation to respond to the informational messages, as the perks were automatic, but could click a “Got it” button to confirm receipt. Results were as follows:

Total “loyalty-perk” messages delivered: 5,899.050
Total unique subscribers who received them: 2,079,641
Percentage who clicked “Got it”: 11.93%

While a more detailed response was not measurable, the ISP reported that many remarks of appreciation were expressed to customer support, and observed that building up good will with the subscriber is always a valuable thing, helping make future interactions smooth and fostering loyalty.

3-YEAR IMPACT OF HTTPS ON DELIVERY TIMES

MESSAGE DELIVERY TIMES AT 20 HOURS AFTER LAUNCH AFFECTED BY ~4.5%

To better understand the effects that the approaching-saturation level of HTTPS (~90%*) has upon delivery times of in-browser messages, PerfTech looked at delivery statistics over the past three years at two of its larger North American ISP customers. Delivery events, analyzed across all use cases for each ISP for each calendar year, numbered over 46M total at ISP1, and over 19M total at ISP2. Details and results follow. Read more ...
