  • Awareness and education around the new 4G network.
  • Demonstrations of the network and the 4G devices.
  • Drive consumers to retail.


  • Engage with consumers while showcasing key demo experiences.

We use a 5 step approach when interacting with our consumers. For a more rich interaction we follow these 5 steps. First we welcome all consumers as they pass by. Next we qualify and educate to see which phone would be the ideal fit for them. Then we use a hands on demonstration to show them all the great benefits the device has. Afterwards we capture their data (they have a chance to win one of our daily $50 gift cards and a trip to Montaco). Finally we drive all our warm leads to retail.
