Operators understand that subscribers can create material that is potentially interesting to other users. And users often have the desire to share content that they generate themselves. By creating portals for users to easily create, share, and consume multimedia content, operators can take advantage of viral consumption to fully engage its subscribers, as well as attract new ones.

What Is the Opportunity?

Increase customer loyalty with a social networking application that allows subscribers to share videos and other multimedia content. Pay users when their video clips are viewed by others.

What Are the Challenges?

Integrating charging and application detection for viewing of subscriber-generated multimedia content.

How Will This Impact My Business?

• Increase customer loyalty with viral operator on-net services that attract subscriber participation

• Offer promotional subscriptions to users on other operator networks who view user-generated videos

• Sustain customer loyalty through creation of a commerce market between operator and subscribers

One operator example:

– 32 million paid video downloads, paying over US$1.6 million to content creators

– 60,000 clips submitted (creators earned over $25 per clip)
