Hello, I would like to present for your enjoyment, Ameritalk. Ameritalk is a sub brand of a company you may already know. T-Mobile is doing its best to compete in the newly formed prepaid cell phone industry. The problem all post paid carriers face, is heavy competition from prepaid wireless providers. The new prepaid companies often offer the same services at almost half the cost. What’s the solution? Ameritalk, offering the same nationwide network access that drives T-Mobiles success. Using unique sales offers and the latest handsets, Ameritalk hopes to attract a more diverse customer base than its parent company T-Mobile. Through out this wonderful campaign document, you will find the information relating to every step of the campaign design process, as well as the meaning behind the decisions.

phone within their household. This trend is placing importance of land lines at an all time low. Activations of new service plans are going to reflect this trend naturally, meaning there will be great deal of new and potential subscribers. The average consumer is also aware of this market change and is more than likely very knowledgeable about the services offered. The average person is most likely lost without his or her handheld device. All of these changing factors serve to foster a perfect business climate for small independent precellular providers. This makes convincing a prospect

customer even more challenging. The market that is far from their home playing field. It was this chronology of events that ultimately lead to the birth of Ameritalk. Most consumers who choose prepaid as their preference have a strong dislike of contracted payment plans. The idea is to use Ameritalk to promote trust in those unsure customers who may not want to do business with T-Mobile or any post paid company. Creating Ameritalk as a sub brand of T-Mobile will effectively restore some equality to the playing field for T-Mobile, giving them the opportunity to create a new relationship with a customer base that they previously were excluded from.

The introduction of the standalone-prepaid companies was an additional roadblock that forced T-Mobile to act on a solution. Creating a sub brand of T-Mobile that offered the same inexpensive services was the only foreseeable solution to this current set of circumstances.

1.1

Research Findings T- Mobile is a national provider of wireless voice,

messaging and data services, capable of reaching over 293 million Americans where they live, work and play. T- Mobile was formed in July, 2002 (“Cellular-news,” ). It’s the fourth-largest wireless carrier in the U.S. market. T-Mobile USA is a member of the T-Mobile International group, the mobile telecommunications subsidiary of Deutsche Telecoms AG (NYSE: DT).

1.0 Research

T-Mobile International is the first mobile communications company to offer service on both sides of the Atlantic with a single global brand name and a single digital technology standard, GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications).

Prepaid phone companies are slowly taking over the cell phone market. Offering cheaper phones with cheaper plans is the key for prepaid companies to attract consumers. Economic slow down, rising number of Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs), made the consumers to get their services from different prepaid carriers, like Cricket, Metro PCS, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile. T-Mobile has an image of being an expensive postpaid service carrier like Sprint, Verizon and AT&T in the phone market. Even though T-Mobile has prepaid service, it doesn’t offer many attractive features like unlimited international calling, unlimited 4G data and Live TV.

One world, one standard, which makes T-Mobile the one company that gives customers more ways to stick together.


Conclusion

1.1

There are many benefits and drawbacks in both

prepaid and postpaid services, but if postpaid services like T-Mobile don’t try to minimize the difference in expenses, service qualities and, features with prepaid companies like Metro PCS or Cricket, they will be losing more clients in the future.

T-Mobile wants to grow sales and brand awareness, by establishing a sub-brand and make it run far above the competition. To accomplish these objectives, T-Mobile needs a new name for its sub-brand, new updated logo, print advertisement, TV spot, music video, radio spot, new website, a digital advertising tool for consumers to post comments.

1.0 Research

The purpose for creating this project is to examine and explain the reasons for T-Mobile struggling in the cell phone market. After examining T-Mobile’s position in the market place, this paper will explain the opportunities and plans for further growth of the brand and sales.

Research Target Demographics T

1.0 Research

he target demo graph for Ameritalks campaign is the age range between 16-35, which is a fairly large area of ground to cover. This means there will be many different campaign deliverable that are custom designed to attract specific sections of this large target audience. By segmenting the workload it makes for a more organized approach for the campaign strategy.

10

Brand Positioning T-Mobile is no novice in the telecom market.

T-Mobile has successfully gained a strong hold on a sizable portion of the market and is not willing to surrender any of its territory. The hopes of Ameritalk are to rejoin many disjointed customers who have had bad experiences with contract phones. Many customers would gladly trade quality and reliability for a more affordable rate. By wearing the Ameritalk persona T-Mobile can silently navigate and be a part of the prepaid environment, all the while remaining safe in the skeptical eyes of the average consumer..

The Competition

1.3

There are many prepaid competitors with large

customer bases and consumer trust. Boost Mobile being the pioneer in the prepaid game, has emerged to be undoubtably the largest competitor. One of the campaign USP is the “ “ add campaign. This lighthearted comedy based ad design is a way of being relatable, hip and young feeling to the intended audience of Boost mobile. Cricket was a late addition to the roster of players in the telecom-prepaid community. Despite their late arrival, they have wasted no time in aggressively campaigning against the competition with promotions that are far more generous in addition to an overall lower monthly cost. It has been this technique that gave them the edge when other companies were unwilling to make adjustment to their policies of there unique sales points that you may recall is “wallet drop”. This also enhanced their arsenal and continues to give them a much-needed edge in a hostile and volatile business environment.

1.5 Unique Selling Proposition (USP)

Ameritalk

1.0 Research

Ameritalk is developing several innovative ways to keep the customers interest peeked as well as staying ahead of the competition. One of the USP being developed is the code club. Amerital’s code club is a proprietary barcode-scanning app that will be installed as a stock feature on all compatible Ameritalk handsets. A campaign of very well thought out and strategically placed bar codes would be implemented into the design campaign. If the barcode is scanned by the Ameritalk code club app, the code will direct the viewer to inside offers that are exclusive to Ameritalk subscribers. When and if the bar code is scanned by a third party scanning app, or a non Ameritalk user, the same code will lead the viewer to an alternate area describing the current benefits of switching to Ameritalk. There will also be additional offers such as free wireless Internet tethering for users who have unlimited data packages.

With times changing, soon grandmothers. This is why A new tech-era, and attempt


These case studies because these two companies

are very similar in their attempts to take hold of the prepaid wireless network market. The only difference is in how they approached the task of winning over their customers. Each of the case studies tried some very new ways of getting the customers attention, and at the same time stuck to the tried and true methods. The question is what can I take away from both of their failure and successes. One of my biggest inspirations from reading these two case studies is not to place all of my hopes in one method. What makes Ameritalks campaign different is its customer versatility in its ads and billboards. A new addition to its (USP) list is the free hotspot service. Customers who have compatible devices and unlimited data will have the luxury of enjoying fee hotspot capability over Ameritalks 4G network. I think one overall campaign agenda is fine, but there is a need for several sub campaigns that are demographically specific to the unique customer’s needs. That is what Ameritalk hopes to bring to the table and change the game for the average cellular consumer. Based on our consumer demo-graph the brand essence of Ameritalk is always changing to meet the current demands of its many styles of people it may be serving. For the young crowd not too much color and straight to the point, active social people like to see their products in motion. While shifting gears to the professional demograph, Ameritalk changes its look to fit a more mature business oriented individual. Light color schemes and smooth rounded graphics make up the professional backdrop for the business campaign of Ameritalk.

T

hrough comparing the Ameritalk campaign to similar companies, a number of ways were found to weed out the aspects of my design that did not fit. In the research done it was very important to be very care full to not be too similar to the competition while still remaining within the realm of� industry essence� that a consumer may look for. Most companies have a very similar way of delivering their campaign agenda. This is mostly due to the fact that they are all fighting to gain the attention of the same or similar demo graph. The trick was to stay within these guidelines with a unique flare that did not confuse the audience.

T

his chosen tag line is a very easy to understand phrase which covers a great deal of the common issues in the telecommunication industry. It also speaks to the user in terminology that is common in the information technology field. For example a repair company may often have the word solution in its name.

While developing the Ameritalk campaign, many

logo variations were experimented with. After careful consideration about half of the rough draft ideas were kept as permanent logos to be used in the campaign. The Antipasto font was chosen for its ability to be clearly read. The outline of the telephone was a brilliant addition to the log; it adds the abstract design quality that is needed for memorable logo. To create a feeling of energy the red dot at the top of the “ Ameritalk “ “I “ was added.

he theme of this mood board is ‘Active and sociable’. This mood board will represent the mobile generation; they have grown up with cell phones and cannot imagine life without them. Cell phone devices are a central part of their everyday lives. Communication is vital in their lives, and cell phones allow them to keep up-to-date with friends and social events. Their phone is the bridge to their social world. The target audience of this mood board is people from the age of 18 to 35. The images in this mood board are the images of young ages, busy with social interacting. The images of two cell phones shows their life style. The background image of cell phone in a jean pockets represents the attachment of cell phones with their busy life. The purple text is used to preserve a similarity with the original company “T-Mobile”. The typefaces are chosen based on legibility and readability. For the company name I have chosen Antipasto. It is chosen for its clarity and readability. I have chosen Mathilde for the theme of the mood board. Antipasto is a soft round font and really charming. It is very organized and friendly.

When choosing our new companies fresh new look, Ameritalk exercised great care in leaving no detail left un- explored. The intent is to draw an unspoken connection between Ameritalk and T-Mobile using colors , other similar features you may find in the two designs. Ameritalk plans to use the mother companies purple but only as an accent. The color of Ameritalk pink and will be delivered much in the same way T-Mobile has in the past. The main franchise color (pink) will fill up the adds and be very warm and vibrant. Playing on the emotions of the customer before they have even read a word of the add is the strategy behind the emotional thought process of the logo and color palette.

The fonts that will be used for the web display are Antipasto for headlines and Helvetica for the body copy. When placing the Ameritalk logo in a web-based image, if there are any secondary logos for any reason, they would appear no smaller than 75% of the original logo. The Ameritalk logo is always to appear at the top or bottom at least once if not more. The website should strongly mirror the add campaign in most areas of imagery and texture.
