WOW! Buzz Blog

WOW! Buzz Blog

This is the story of a really cool cable company who services the Mid West and are headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and we had the opportunity to launch a completely new Social Media program for them.

WOW! has recently been awarded their tenth JD Power and Associates Award for Customer Service. Their most recent three awards from JD Power came all at one time for Residential Television, Residential Internet, and Residential Phone Service. This is quite an honor for WOW! as no other company in the industry has ever taken this top JDPA honor across all three categories.

The bottom line is that WOW! is doing something different. We all wanted to work harder to share the amazing culture, to listen and engage with their employees and customers, and to ultimately drive even harder to deliver on Servanthood as a key focus of the organization.

There are a few things you just have to do in order to enjoy a social media property that is robust and works in tandem with your culture and business objectives. It’s been a tremendous partnership in working with WOW!, and through this partnership we’ve worked through the User Experience Plan, Content Plan, and ultimately working all of these requirements into the Design and Development process. The resulting launch brought to life the key community properties for WOW!
