Personalized Hotline

Hotlines become increasingly niche in the support services they provide

Implications - Hotlines are no longer restricted to functions like supporting people's mental health, and are becoming much more specific in the support they offer – with everything from sleep-inducing services to ones that aid refugees who are crossing the Mediterranean. These services are popping up as some of the negative effects of social media, such as interpersonal isolation, encourage consumers to seek digital connections through varying platforms.
Workshop Question - Brainstorm a hotline service that your brand could offer its customers.
