SMS Mega Promotions

SMS Mega Promotions (Mobile operator branded)

Supa Pesa takes a holistic approach in each campaign we design, by comprehensively researching the relevant target market, taking into consideration various elements to ensure that maximum participation is achieved. Supa Pesa has an experienced team conceptualising innovative and effective campaign formats resulting in highly successful promotions.

Our progressive technology allows Mobile Network Operators to login to an online, live dashboard, displaying real time activities on each respective campaign. Supa Pesa is able to offer technical support 24/7.

Supa Pesa provides Mobile Network Operators with a multitude of feasible and unique Mega Promotion Campaigns that not only excite and reward current subscribers, but also entice potential subscribers to migrate to their network.

This is done by means of a varied selection of raffle-based competitions, whereby millions of subscribers are encouraged to send a text message (SMS) to a premium rated short code, in order to stand a chance of winning a selection of attractive prizes. These campaigns usually run for a pre-determined period of approximately 90 to 120 days and would typically occur between one and three times per annum.

Supa Pesa offers a multitude of campaigns, specifically packaged for each Mobile Network Operator, which must be relevant to their target market to achieve the desired result; being an increase in traffic by the subscriber base and the obtaining of valuable profiling information for the Network Operator. Such information could be used to identify which products and service offerings the Mobile Network Operator could successfully introduce to the market.

One such campaign would for instance include a trivia game, which would not only be entertaining for the user, but would gather the required data and be accumulated in a concise database format, based on specific questions posed by the Mobile Network Operator. The acquiring of such accurate information about each user would undoubtedly boost direct profiled marketing to a whole new level.
