In today’s environment, given the capital expenditures required to expand the networks to cater to 5G, higher bandwidth, increasing subscriber base and dwindling returns, telecom operators are looking at avenues to Increase revenues while lowering their Marketing costs. This in turn ensures ROI in a relatively compressed time frame than they would under normal circumstances.
By virtue of the fact that over 20% of daily calls on the operator network do not generate any revenue as they cannot be completed (for a myriad of reasons), this offers a great opportunity to monetize through the offering of products and services that are pertinent to customers.
The fact that these offers are pull-based and non-intrusive also means reduced customer complaints, instant reach for new products, the ability to overcome literacy barriers among other advantages.
This is where BlackNGreen’s Call Monetization Platform comes in. Completely integrated with the telecom operators’ network and if required, their downstream systems (CVM, Campaign Management etc.), it provides a brand new avenue for operators to generate revenue by providing services that are personalized to callers at their time of need. Whether it is a loan, or voice/data pack etc. any existing service can also be integrated with the platform.
Furthermore, in locations where regulators have placed restrictions in types of marketing, this also serves as a great Marketing channel which ordinarily would not exist. This has resulted in increased ARPU for the operator, reduced churn and complaints.

PM Connect is both a pioneer and an innovator within the mobile ecosystem. The company is spearheading transformation by introducing world-leading content to the DCB market and MNOs – pairing it with powerful mobile advertising.
This is showcased by its landmark deal for the NBA League Pass, a product that has changed the game for DCB in the sports market.
Often the first mover to anticipate the next growth opportunity, this strategic vision offers unparalleled value to PM Connect’s carrier partners.
2022 was no different – with PM Connect further strengthening its strategic partnerships in the high-growth sector of Sports OTT and acting as a trailblazer for bringing DCB into the mainstream.
The company’s exciting content offering is not just driving revenue through DCB subscriptions, PM Connect’s strategies have been instrumental in generating data usage and providing use cases for 5G adoption.
This game-changing content is enhanced further by the PM Connect’s digital advertising, serving as the growth engine for its brand and MNO partners – driving subscription acquisition and commercial results.
PM Connect runs highly targeted and inclusive campaigns across Google and socials, with incremental and innovative 360 marketing spend – with a bespoke approach taken on the merits of each product, territory and key target demographics.
The company’s flagship partnership with the $8.5 billion (pa) National Basketball Association (NBA) is going from strength to strength. This was a game-changer for the DCB ecosystem as PM Connect is directly advertising and handling momobile payments for its direct-to-consumer (D2C) over-the-top (OTT) product, NBA League Pass. League Pass is one of the hottest D2C sports properties in the world, which is seeing huge growth outside of the NBA’s core US market.
The partnership has expanded the reach of NBA LP to millions of consumers in Europe and Africa – with more territories set to be launched, enabling the NBA to monetise basketball fans it otherwise might not be able to reach, and for consumers, it gives them access to the world-class content they crave.
The League Pass provides the most comprehensive live and on-demand access to an entire season of NBA games in high-definition with live stats, alternative audio and multiple viewing options. Subscribers gain access to League Pass’s Next-Generation game viewing enhancements, including new camera angles, multiple in-language streams, celebrity influencer commentary, in-depth analytics and statistical graphics, and social media integration.
The Sports OTT market is booming, as more consumers migrate to digital media consumption and linear TV declines. This is particularly poignant in Africa, a continent that PM Connect is revolutionising – something we have led the conversation on in the sports world, including editorial placement in leading sports business title, SportsPro.
Kev Dawson, Group CEO at PM Connect, highlights this:
“Africa is the new frontier for sports OTT and mobile is the gateway. With mass consumption happening on mobile devices, coupled with a growing appetite for international and domestic sport, the last piece of the jigsaw is monetisation in order for rights holders to unlock potential fans and turn them into paying subscribers – while also democratising access. That is what PM Connect offers its content partners in Africa, connecting them to leading MNOs on the continent.”
Sports OTT will be worth $85 billion by 2024, and basketball is the fastest growing sport globally for millennials and Gen Z – with 43 million NBA fans outside of North America – many of whom use mobile as their first, and in some cases, only screen. Through its NBA League Pass partnership, PM Connect’s MNO customers are set to reap the rewards – including major groups Orange, Vodafone and MTN.
This is proven in Africa where PM Connect’s advertising has already generated more than 1.5M new subscribers to the NBA League Pass product, with similar success in Belgium and France in Western Europe.

Women have never played such an essential role as they do today. In recent years, the conversation has been about women’s empowerment with celebrities and ambassadors promoting the social transformation of women.
In business and economics, the female voice is also gaining ground. Women’s economic empowerment increases productivity, economic diversification, and equity. Women have become a profitable market for different industries. Regarding their family life and finance, women have more power and influence on purchasing decisions.
Modern women have modern habits. They are mobile-first, social and multitask, so they need to be connected and informed. To support this extraordinary growth, Telecoming has developed Woman Today, a women-oriented mobile service that offers content on different topics to boost women’s community and satisfy the curiosity of this new and exigent audience questioning the status quo. It is an innovative mobile service to inspire, support and empower women.
It is the first service based on a subscription model using DCB technology with a strong focus on inspiring women with personal stories where the protagonists have overcome adversity and are leading the change around their communities. It is the perfect example of how Direct Carrier Billing can empower women. It delivers the latest trending topics such as politics, well-being, health and beauty, entertainment, fashion, fitness, gastronomy, and much more.
Woman Today is the first DCB service to offer NFTs to its community of subscribers. NFTs operate through blockchain technology, which ensures their traceability, and are assigned digital certificates of authenticity that cannot be modified. The "Empowering Style" collection, exclusively designed for Woman Today, contains 36 NFTs spread across 6 categories to offer unique items to users.
The incorporation of NFTs in the service wants to reward subscribers’ loyalty with original and unique NFTs. Thus, one free NFT is available for every registered user. If the user doesn’t own a wallet, Woman Today safeguards the NFT, but if he already has a wallet, like MetaMask, Woman Today transfers it directly. Once users have the NFT in their wallet, they can sell it in the leading marketplaces like OpenSea, by leveraging the digital art secondary market.
Other state-of-the-art technology included in this service:
· Augmented Reality applied to the creation of original filters for women.
· Augmented audio technology to transform mobile content into playlists.
· Technology for transforming any streaming signal of a show to be consumed in a web browser.
· Personalization features with original assets for users to create with their mobiles and enjoy a unique experience.
This mobile service is an example of content innovation with a high global impact.
According to Eurostat figures, the cultural and creative industries employ 7.3 million people in the EU, France being the second highest cultural employer with more than 1 million professionals. Before the pandemic, the cultural industry generated in the EU more than 400B euros per year. 2020 changed everything, and the digital cultural offer skyrocketed.
Two years later, this market, like many others, has understood that the digital channel is not an alternative but a need. The cultural industry must find a monetization model that helps it be profitable online. In addition, new consumption models have also impacted the world of culture, which must move to the digital environment with the utmost urgency.
To contribute to the consolidation of the digital cultural market, in 2022, Telecoming created the first mobile cultural subscription with DCB technology that integrates the best music, theatre and cinema services.
It is a model that arises from the alliance between Telecoming as a monetization tech partner and the best cultural producers:
QWest TV: The global hub for music and culture by Quincy Jones. It features 1,300+ hand-selected concerts, interviews, archival gems and documentaries. It is a world of curated musical excellence with jazz, soul, funk, blues, hip-hop, global sounds, electronic and classical.
Opsis TV is an SVOD platform specializing in live performances. This streaming platform, dedicated to live performance, offers a catalogue of over 500 recordings of shows, plays, opera and dance.
Finema: All the entertainment of the best French-speaking cinema, gathered in a single collection. More than 3,000 titles consolidate this service as the world’s most extensive French cultural offer in digital format, with award-winning works recognized throughout Europe: British Academy Film Awards, Emmy Awards, Goya Awards, MinistÃ¨re De La Culture.
This project deserves to be recognized at the MEFFYS for its innovative character, social commitment and contribution to the mobile ecosystem with an absolutely different product for all users in France.
