Questions & Answers
#1 Can you explain to us what your typical day looks like at Telkomsel?
Every day as the head of Growth and Partnership at Telkomsel, I start my day with a standup team meeting. We updated our activity that we will do on that day. With this meeting, we can know the action of each department so that we can align with our goal and KPI.
After that, usually check the performance of each channel on paid media. Like Facebook Ads, Google Ads, Programmatic, and other media, we make minor improvements if the implementation meets our daily objective. Still, we need to create a new campaign or improve the strategy when the result does not align with our daily forecast.
After improving the paid media performance, I am doing regular meetings with other opportunity channels to bring numbers for our product, like partnerships with different brands or create a referral campaign.
The last activity was to check the content of organic media and check customer comments on social media. I always pay attention to lousy words and use customer feedback for our improvement.
