We’ve worked with inzpire.me for a few years now. We’ve always gotten relevant, quality content from their creators, which we could never have produced ourselves!

Telecommunications is a hyper competitive industry, with expensive customer acquisition costs and a historically low net promoter score.

To help boost brand awareness, our team recognized that the key to success would be to reach the right target audience with great visuals and clear messaging about Telia X.
By combining data and hands-on expertise, we found influencers who had quality content, relevant audiences, high engagement, and more. Several high-performing influencers from previous campaigns with Telia were also shortlisted for the campaign.
Once the influencers were selected, the next step was developing a content strategy that drove measurable results.
A core benefit Telia wanted to get across was the ability to use their service anywhere. To do this creatively and effectively, we asked the influencers to create content outdoors in a clear campaign brief.
