Mobilink puts Ladies First
As the competition among the mobile providers heats up in Pakistan, they are coming up with new packages to attract and retain customers. Mobilink has introduced an interesting package called “Ladies First” to attract the female market segment.
The service is targeted at ‘homemakers’ and ‘housewives,’ and offers bundled value-added services, including ‘beauty tips, cooking recipes, health notes, home, food and entertainment’, all via SMS.

It will, says Mobilink, ‘fully empower and equip the women in Pakistan with the tools needed to lead a successful and fulfilling life’.
It will be interesting to see how ladies react to this new offer and whether other providers jump in to create similar competitive offerings. Can you guess what’s so special about 3pm-6pm that Mobilink is offering a discount?
