Safaricom has introduced a new advertising strategy which will give you free airtime for listening to ads.
Safaricom is always creating new and innovative ways to get their customers involved in their strategies and they are quite smart because people always love free things. Customers can now enroll and subscribe to a service where they have to listen to several ads so they can get free data or airtime.
Here’s how you can enroll:
- Subscribe to the service by dialling *897# to enrol
- Here you will hear adverts in place of the ringing tone as they wait for the customer they are calling to pick up.
- If you enrol you will receive free 5 MB data or free 1-minute for adverts you listen too
If you’re not a lover of ads then this is not what you need to enroll to because you have to listen to 3 adverts which are at least 6 seconds long but then you can accumulate your data and airtime every first day of the month. You can unsubscribe at any time and fortunately, no matter what time you unsubscribe, the data or minutes you have will be valid till the first day of the following month.
CEO, Peter Ndegwa said:
“The Skiza Ad Service is an exciting innovation that seeks to provide an excellent platform for businesses across the country. We aim to do this by better connecting them with customers and equally taking advantage of our wide reach. The platform will deliver to our customers even more value through free data and minutes whenever they enroll and listen to advertisements.”
The service is offered in partnership with Adtones, who will provide the ad-serving platform and on-board advertisers. Businesses and other advertisers can place their adverts on the service by writing to AdTones.
