Why Read This Report
Giffgaff, a low-cost mobile virtual network operator, uses an online community for customer support, sales and marketing, as well as product development functions. To ensure a positive customer experience for advanced community users and value-driven customers who aren't used to online communities, giffgaff determined the ideal high-level attributes of the community to support its brand and focused on educating and incenting members to participate in a positive way. Customer experience professionals who wish to emulate some of giffgaff's best practices should hire experienced community managers, use a combination of quantitative and qualitative research to understand target members, and guide, but not try to control, the community.
