Can Increasing Churn Rates Dent Profits in the Telecom Industry?

Sep 15, 2017

The churn rates in the telecom industry are constantly on the rise, mostly due to increasing competition and elimination of switching costs. Customer loyalty in the telecom industry is almost extinct as service providers are battling to provide better service at a lower cost. To drive profitability, companies have to burn the candles at both ends by sweating blood to earn new customers and satisfying the existing ones to stay with them. The latter is evidently a more cost-effective option, which is why companies are adopting robust customer churn analysis solutions to retain profitable customers.

Acquiring New Customers Vs. Retaining Existing Ones in The Telecom Industry

The telecom giants in their early days were indulging in a fierce battle of reduced call rates, promotional offer, and compelling monthly plans to win over new customers. Later on, as the telecom industry approached its saturation point, companies realized the importance of reducing the churn rates. It costs hundreds of dollars in advertising and administrative expenses to acquire a single customer in the telecom industry. In contrast to that, when a single customer leaves, the company not only loses on the future revenues but also the resources spent to acquire the customer in the first place. Retaining the customer base also provides the company with opportunities to up-sell and cross-sell the products. For instance, the majority of the telecom companies have started a new offering called ‘Triple Play’ services to their customer combining TV, broadband, and phone services.
