Hanging on the telephone

Carphone Warehouse have actively set out to compete online with the leading mobile telcos to capture customers (and their data) and act as an aggregator in the market.  In response O2, Three, EE, and Vodafone along with many of the challenger brands, have responded by keeping their most popular SIM-only products in their own channels and invested heavily in trying to attract and engage customers directly into their sales funnels.  So, who is engaging the customer and who is left hanging on?

Scandi noir or Conran for the 21st century? Whose online Home and Garden offer is winning over the UK?

Since the turn of the century property porn on television and online has become ubiquitous. Not just content to offer us buying and selling programmes, schedulers offer us programmes on every aspect of ‘living’ at home, so much so that the BBC have twice run an interior design equivalent of ‘Bake Off’. One of the consequences is that we’ve seen an explosion of mid to low cost retailers (multi-channel and pure play online) that bring ‘the look’ out of the small screen and the glossy magazines and into the average home and garden. This week’s infographic compares the performance of four online players and explore where to go to keep up with the Joneses and whose offer is in need of a makeover.
