Celcom Ringtones and Celcom Broadband
I am quite surprise when I looked into my stats report last week when I realized that there are only a few of my visitors came from Pahang looking for information about Celcom in Pahang. I am not sure why this is the case but I am certain that Celcom has a wide reception all around Pahang especially in Kuantan. My cousin lives there and as he uses Celcom, I asked him how well the broadband service is over there. He confirmed that he faces no difficulties though he only use the Celcom Broadband Basic plan. What I am trying to say here is if Celcom has no problems at all with its services there in Pahang, then the only explanation why there were only few looking for information about Celcom is there are too few of Celcom's subscribers there. Now that might not be the case and unfortunately I have no trustworthy source to check that and even if I had, disclosing it might breached the law which is a no-no to me.
Celcom Malaysia has been promoting its services nationwide and from my standpoint of view, I can safely recommend you to try its broadband service. It offers high-speed connection and I can assure you that the service is reliable. I am still trying to get a proper and acceptable comparison between Celcom Broadband and Maxis broadband and once I get the right information, I'll post it here in my next post. As for now, if you are interested to subscribe to Celcom's, then get yourself prepared with at least RM99 (I'm not sure how much the deposits are to subscribe to Celcom broadband, but I'm sure it's around RM200) and same amount will be charged every month. The amount charged by Celcom should be the same in Pahang and you can also visit their outlets to get better picture of their plans.
As far as I'm concern Pahang is the biggest state in West Malaysia and recently there has been major developments there. I visited Kuantan last August and I find the town to be far busier than before (the last time I visited Pahang was in 2006). You can see lots of mobile phone shops around the town which can easily be seen with their blue signage sponsored by Celcom. But what I really want to tell you guys here is not just about Celcom in Pahang but the only main reason why I mentioned the word Pahang there is to let you know the potential of making money there in Pahang with Mymode prepaid business. Since there are a lot of Celcom users though I can't actually figure out how many of them are postpaid users and how many of them are prepaid users, there are chances that selling prepaid cards and reloads for mobile phone can be a good business there.
Have you heard someone quoted that the smaller the group is, the more profit you can gain from them? Well this is true in many cases and selling credit topup for those using Celcom in Pahang would be one of them. The chance is even greater if Mymode is not that popular over there, which means the only method available there to buy or purchase top ups is by going to mobile phone shops or perhaps 7-Eleven convenience stores. If you live there in either Beserah or Kuantan, you might be able to gain instant popularity if you start announcing that you are selling prepaids for both Maxis and Celcom users. How convenient that is to have a dealer around you, don't you think so? I'll be grateful if there's one, and for that same reason I have no reason whatsoever not to join Mymode. Apart from being your easiest gateway to get top-up airtime, it is also a chance for you to earn money from it.
Before I forgot few things about Celcom, allow me to mention a bit on Celcom products. In my last post on Celcom Blue package, I have mentioned about how great the product is compared to Maxis Hotlink. I found out another interesting thing about Celcom; their ringtones. Celcom has wide range of ringtones name it from classical rock to chinese songs. I know, I objected the idea of using caller ringtones to entertain your callers, but I have nothing against using ringtones for your own phone and for your own use. And I must agree that the ringtones offered by Celcom are really in high quality. Oh, if you live in Pahang, then visiting your nearest Celcom outlets should be a must as the representatives there should be able to provide you more information about thei r wonderful list of ringtones.
The Celcom ringtones shared one similar characteristic which is they are cheap in price ( I mean for Celcom users). You shouldn't come up with questions on how to install the ringtones to your phone as the installation and downloading instruction is easy to be followed. Songs offered are actually clips from original songs but there are also few full complete songs which you can downloaded from Celcom com site. Siti Nurhaliza's songs are also part of the list there and this might be an attractive factor for Pahang people to visit Celcom site since Siti Nurhaliza came from the same state (Kuala Lipis). Of course, there are others good songs and if you are interested more into malay ringtones, you can always find them as the site has beautifully categorized all the songs and ringtones. Hey, if you use celcom broadband, you can get to the site significantly quicker than normal internet connection (my cousin claimed this and please tell me if this is not right so I can update this post).
From what I see from the news either on newspapers or on tv, Celcom is actively promoting its products non-stop and consistently. The new Celcom blue is one of them and they also participated in TV3 Jom Heboh carnivals. I knew about this because I saw it once on TV when they show people rushed to Celcom booth in Pahang "Jom heboh". It seems like Celcom is gaining more and more popularity than Maxis Hotlink and I wonder what Maxis will do to counter this "attack". Perhaps now they are planning on something better and if that is the case, then I guess I'll stick with Maxis for the time being. I can't help myself from thinking about the Celcom Teman 20 feature that comes with Celcom blue which has totally outrank Maxis Active10. Well, as I said, I will wait for now and if there is no good news from Maxis, I'll then post a post here to inform you guys that I have switched my 012 number to Celcom.
