About MediaMarkt Switzerland

MediaMarkt is Europe’s number one consumer electronics retailer. Over 800 branches in 14 countries, including 26 in Switzerland, offer innovation, customer orientation and comprehensive service. MediaMarkt is a typical multi-channel retailer. The idea is that customers are able to shop wherever they want. Dovetailing its online and offline elements means the company can offer a wealth of options, like online ordering combined with in-store pick-up, or in-store consultation followed by home delivery.

Online trading in particular is booming. That’s apparent from the sale figures, and it has an impact on marketing activities as well.

Inspiring and Retaining Customers – and Increasing Revenues

MediaMarkt Switzerland has three goals in its social media marketing: awareness, loyalty and performance.

Awareness covers strenghtening the brand’s reputation, community building and tapping into new target groups. Here MediaMarkt relies on collaborations with other brands as well as influencers. For the team, compelling stories are key. Everything they do in the area of customer retention falls under the category of loyalty. This includes interacting with the community and customer service via social media. The goal of performance, on the other hand, is defined by specific key social media figures. Campaigns and posts are designed for maximum reach and page impressions, with the aim of boosting interaction driving traffic to the website. This in turn increases revenue and turnover. There’s a clear performance goal in community management, too: responding to inquiries from customers within 24 hours.

Customer Focus at Every Level of Social Media Marketing

MediaMarkt’s entire approach to social media marketing is driven by customer focus. The team often incorporates internal key figures into its content planning, including products which turn up frequently in searches. Quantity and quality are important considerations when creating content, and maintaining a consistently high level of quality of posting is a challenge. Quality always trumps quantity.

The company’s commitment to its customers is particularly evident in its community management work. The team even responds to queries on the weekend. The aim is to provide a positive response quickly, but without squandering resources.
