One of my basic principles is that there’s always a massive commitment to finish what one starts. Working with Melcom Group of Companies has been a great experience. The key however is that no matter what the success of the business, my team members’ positive attitude towards work always remains the same and being a part of this infectious positivity and enthusiasm has been my drive over the past five years since I joined the advertising and creative department.
The successful growth of the Melcom brand is mostly attributed to the emotions and trust that help create a relationship between brands and their consumers, which in the long run ensures brands and consumers’ loyalty.
Also the advertising and creative department of Melcom Group of Companies, always come up with the best advertising strategies that helps improve and constantly enhances the perception of the Melcom brand. This is achieved through specific advertising campaigns which makes the brand less vulnerable to competitive marketing in Ghana.
The effective communication during our monthly promotional campaigns helps boost footfalls at the shop levels and also yields to the stability of the brand in the local market. Consumer satisfaction is the prime focus of the Melcom brand which over the years has translated into a wider customer base, increased sales and generated revenue growth.
