/PRNewswire/ --
giffgaff, the community powered mobile network renowned for their flexible
tariffs and free sim cards, has enjoyed storming success in the first half of
2012, scooping no less than three coveted industry awards since January.
Mobile Industry Awards (2012)
Last week giffgaff was crowned Best MVNO at the Mobile Industry Awards,
triumphing in a category noted by organisers as one of the industry's most
competitive fields for its innovation, branding strength and compelling
marketing.
giffgaff's entry built a potent case for the network's impact on the mobile
sector, highlighting the revolutionary proposition the brand has brought to the
market, one that is based on the principles of transparency and mutuality and
that puts customers at the heart of the business. The entry charts giffgaff's
unparalleled growth over two years from a new contender to a leading social
business.
Judges were impressed by giffgaff's success in turning a bold, untested
proposition into a thriving and financially robust MVNO.
giffgaff CEO Mike Fairman said: "To be recognised amongst peers as the
country's leading MVNO is a powerful affirmation that by doing mobile
differently, we're doing mobile right. In 2010, striking out with a new,
community-based mobile proposition was an enormous risk, yet our levels of
member engagement (more than 100,000 Facebook likes) and advocacy, has
continually reassured us. Winning this prestigious award only strengthens our
belief that giffgaff is the future face of mobile."
Social Brands 100 (2012)
In late May giffgaff was ranked overall third behind Innocent and Starbucks in
the 2012 Social Brands 100, the annual benchmark of brands leading in social
media.
The ranking, drawn up through a combination of tracking and analysis of social
media interaction, independent research and an expert judging panel, placed
giffgaff higher than any other telecom or technology brand, serving as powerful
evidence of giffgaff fulfilling its ambitions to build strong member relationships,
to listen actively to what customers want and to act appropriately in response.
Even more impressive is the fact that giffgaff scored the highest of all 100
brands on its 'data score' - the measure of intensity of interactions between the
brand and the community. Overall this shows how successfully a brand uses
social media to create a vibrant community.
Mike Fairman commented: "To be the top rated brand in this sphere is truly
sensational and a testament to the incredible community of members that
make giffgaff what it is. Two-way engagement is at the heart of giffgaff, since
inception we have fought to build deeper relationships with our members
through talking and listening. In turn this has created an enormous swell of
advocacy and loyalty which has allowed us to take the business from a standing
start to a thriving MVNO powered by its community."
Lithium 'Lithys' 2012
In early May giffgaff was named 'Best Social Customer Experience' in the Lithys
2012, a record of companies that are transforming their social customer
experiences. Tasked with explaining how giffgaff offers a true social customer
experience, the nomination covered innovations such as giffgaff's community
support forum, which takes the place of a traditional customer service function,
and its Ideas Board, an open platform for members to share their thoughts with
the brand.
giffgaff offered compelling proof that its pioneering approach is working. Any
question or query raised in the community is answered with 90 seconds, 24
hours a day, helping boost customer satisfaction to 90%, thus putting paid to
outdated and inefficient call centres and customer service models. The Ideas
Board, which is drawn upon directly to shape the business, has received over
6,000 ideas and more than 50,000 comments, with giffgaff implementing - on
average - one member idea every three days.
Mike Fairman said: "What this achievement shows is that giffgaff has an online
community that's engaged with a brand to an extent never seen before. In
addition to winning 'Best Social Customer Experience,' giffgaff has also been
acknowledged by Lithium as leader of its Community Health Index, defined by
its ability to meet members needs."
Power 50
Further to these award wins, Fairman has also been recognised in Mobile
Today's recent 'Power 50', ranked 32 in its list of the fifty most influential
people in the mobile industry. The list categorises leaders and visionaries in six
different fields, with Fairman credited as an innovator whose approach to doing
mobile differently has made the larger players 'sit up and take notice.'
