Challenges and solutions for attracting new customers

In order to stand a chance against other telecom operators, marketers must present the right ad, to the right person, at the right time. Indeed, with market saturation for hand-held devices at an all-time high – it is becoming harder and harder for marketing teams to attract new audiences.

Key to overcoming this is producing an effective top of funnel display ad campaign. For with creative, engaging, and data-driven designs your ads are far more likely to stand out from the crowd and convert.

In our telecom marketer’s guide, we breakdown our top 4 solutions for effective display advertising. With real-life examples and how-to guides, it’s a go-to for better brand awareness campaigns.

We also explore the essential strategies for successful telecom brand awareness campaigns.

Challenges and solutions for boosting customer loyalty

Your competitors are working continuously to reach your customers with even better devices and better offers. And with so many providers out there, retaining customer loyalty can be a challenge.

So how do you gain the upper hand over other operators and keep your customers engaged throughout the customer lifecycle? Display advertising can play a crucial role in an omnichannel strategy geared toward encouraging customer loyalty.

In the second part of our guide, we show exactly how marketers can use advanced tactics to re-engage customers using display advertising.

Practical solutions for boosting customer loyalty

The right strategies alongside the right supporting technology can help you enhance your display advertising. Indeed, your display ads can act as a driver of both brand awareness and customer loyalty.

The fact is, display advertising has developed considerably since the first ad in 1994. Now, data management platforms (DMPs) and dynamic creative optimisation (DCO) exist to make the sync between data and creative as seamless as possible.

Dynamic content is an effective way of personalising your advertising, at scale. Currently, iGaming (28%) and Retail (16%) marketers lead the way for using dynamic content yet telecom still lags far behind.



We breakdown exactly how to leverage the latest technology to create smart and data-driven display advertising at scale.

Plus, Telia Company’s Digital Transformation Manager, Lena Lindgren, details how digital transformation has played a part in more effective display strategies. Ultimately helping them to win customers and retain loyalty far more successfully.

Applying a DCO strategy for greater personalisation and conversion

By combining your ads with data, and using the latest dynamic technology – display advertising can be a game-changer for display advertising!

However, in a 2018 survey by Sizmek, 37% of 522 brand marketers in Europe and the US stated that they did not have the knowledge to implement a DCO solution as part of their display strategy.

In light of these findings, we break down step-by-step exactly how to set-up your very own DCO campaign from beginning to end. Enabling marketers to take their display advertising to the next level.
