Revisit Your Data Nightmares

Posted by Cavan Chasan on January 24, 2019 at 10:30 AM

 

As marketers, we have been friends with data for decades. As the conversation has evolved and capabilities have grown, we have experienced excitement for data’s potential yet concern for both actionability and privacy, which is inherent to data’s increased sophistication and collection.

At KSV, we believe in being thoughtful, careful and 100 percent customer focused in terms of how we collect and activate data for our clients. The North Star for us with respect to data is customer centricity. How can we help our clients improve satisfaction for their residential and commercial customers via data-driven interactions? This is the key question that guides our team and its strategic use of data.

3 Ways Social Media Can Save Utilities

Posted by Shaina Kaye on November 15, 2018 at 9:40 AM

It’s 2018. If you’re a utility and you’re not already on social media, you’re late to the table. Three billion active social media users around the world log on to at least one social media platform on a regular – if not daily – basis. That means utility companies have countless opportunities to reach consumers where they are in their day-to-day journeys.  

But just because your utility has a presence on social media, and you’re posting on Facebook every day, doesn’t mean that your job is done. Far from it.
