Customer Care is Paramount to OTT Success, and We’ve Found a Solution

Benedicte Guichard | Wed Oct 24 2018

As the saying goes: in OTT, there is no success without viewer satisfaction. Put simply, if you’re looking for a prosperous and sustainable future in the this space, customer care should be at the top of your priority list.

From years of hands-on experience, we've discovered that flawless customer service fosters trust, loyalty and brand advocacy. And it's these elements that ultimately serve to reduce customer churn and, in many cases, encourage consumers to make extra purchases including subscription upgrades, increasing their individual value significantly.

Customer service is the cornerstone of over-the-top success, and with this notion firmly implanted in our collective mind, we set out on a mission to find a robust solution for increased consumer care and user experience (UX) for those operating in the OTT industry.

To put the importance of customer care into perspective, here are some insights you should know:

  • 69% of today's consumers feel that excellent customer service relates to swift problem resolution.
  • Social media has amplified the need for flawless customer experience because its possible to share any complaints, issues or discrepancies with their peers in the public domain.
  • As today's viewers value the opinion of their peers above all else, if you provide a level of customer excellence that surpasses that of your competitors, you stand to grow your subscriber base rapidly. Yes, word of mouth is a powerful thing, indeed.

Based on our Five Pillars of OTT Customer Care (detailed below), we worked tirelessly to develop a brand new consumer-centric solution that we’ve aptly called, Hi-5, aimed at helping OTT providers like yourself, offer a level of service that your audience will love. And it’s something that we’re incredibly proud of:

Customer care is the future of OTT and if you buy in now, you will reap a raft of endless rewards tomorrow. 

At Cleeng we know first-hand that customer expectations are never static and to meet the demands of these ever growing expectations we must work in a distinctly proactive and innovative way. With that said, it is essential when launching your OTT service that you have strong self-help materials to encourage customer retention and avoid churn.

Having a Help Centre embedded on your site in today’s market is an absolute necessity.
