Recognizing that in Hungary the business activities of hundreds of thousands of small businesses are going through a smaller or larger change, or even a complete transformation, Telekom, under the flag of partnership, launched their community initiative, in which they offer real value to Hungarian small and medium enterprises, free of charge. The Telekom Hello Business Club helps all SMEs become digitalized, and gives even more than that, support and help in a partnership for all changes that carry the business forward through the use of digital solutions.

This online promotional medium can be freely used for online advertisements later, helping SMEs more actively represent themselves online.

The SMEs, registering to the club, with a maximum staff of 50, and with a Telekom subscription, can now be part of a special campaign as well: Telekom’s nationwide online campaign, starting in June will feature businesses, registering to the Telekom Hello Business Club, by random selection. Businesses can also apply for selection by Telekom, and will get publicity in the Corporation’s TV spot.

Telekom’s intention is to create a real community of registering businesses, so that they can find partners and customers, in the further development or even the digitalization of their company. By spawning this community, Telekom’s objective is to recognize the businesses, acting as the motor of Hungary’s economy, and to help them in their process of digitalization, regardless of whether the changes were prompted by the coronavirus, or the business had already been on track towards digital developments.

„We would like to create value for the wider community of Hungarian SMEs, to help them become even more successful in this changing world.” – said Béla Szabó, Telekom’s Brand and Commercial Communication Director, in connection with the launch of the Telekom Hello Business Club.
