Brand icons of Glo Mobile Ghana will, for the next one week, attend to customers in selected Gloworld shops in Accra, according to a release issued by the company’s Marketing Department today.

Glo brand ambassadors Van Vicker, Yvonne Nelson, Nadia Buari and Jackie Appiah will join Glo staff in the company’s customer retail shops, Gloworld at Osu, Ring Road and Accra Central to attend to all customers and fans visiting these shops from Monday June 27 till Thursday June 30. The celebrities will also assist subscribers who need to update their SIM registration records to do so without stress, the release stated.

The release said the company’s rationale for getting its ambassadors to interact with customers on the shop floor is to create an avenue for the Glo network’s most cherished stakeholders to directly experience the excitement which the celebrated ambassadors bring to the brand.

On Monday, June 27th, Yvonne Nelson will be ‘on duty’ at the Osu Gloworld shop on Oxford Street. On Tuesday, 28th, Van Vicker will attend to customers and friends at Ringroad Gloworld shop. It will be the turn of Jackie Appiah on Wednesday, 29th at Ringroad while Nadia Buari will have a field day with customers at the Accra Central Gloworld shop on Thursday, June 30th.

Van Vicker said of the arrangement: “It is going to be splendid! It is a fantastic experience to connect with fans and friends on the Glo network and this is one of those times that fans are able to meet us in a stress free environment, get served, talk to us, ask questions and even take selfies”.

Yvonne Nelson described the plan as a good one to enable Glo subscribers get the kingly treatment that they always deserve. For me, it is going to be an awesome experience talking to customers and working for them, even if it is going to be for a limited period. I look forward to attending to them along with other staff of the company.

It is not just going to be about work alone as the ambassadors are also primed to create time for all and sundry on those dates at the selected shops.
They promised to make the experience worth the while for fans, friends and customers who walk into the shops on the designated dates as there will be loads of fun, chitchats, selfies etc. There are goodies for scores of the early birds, that is those who get to the designated shops on time on the chosen dates.

The statement said the company is designing more innovative ways of connecting with its subscribers and prospects through highly informal avenues.
