  • This is very informative overview of best practices and successful use of social media for customer care. It would be interesting to know the relative amount of resources that these companies invest in their social media strategies. What are the sizes of their social media teams? How many languages do they work in? I imagine things like overall budgets and the tools that they use are closely guarded competitive secrets, but even notional ranges would be interesting. Another great piece of information by SimpliFlying! Thank you.

  6. 6. SimpliFlying Award 2014 for the category of: Best Airline on Social Media Lufthansa SimpliFlying Award 2014
  7. 7. Lufthansa’s Campaigns and Activities Lufthansa’s Social Media Strategy We translate our brand promise ‘nonstop you’ into meaningful programs/activities on a rational level, giving consumers a support on every level (ground and in the air) as well as on a emotional level (enriching experiences) with inspiring travel content. For this we use different channels which are embedded in our whole marketing mix. Ich bin #DeinBerliner Special Social Media Campaign #Iamfcb Special Social Media Activity Blue Legends Social Media App We asked a young Berlin writer to guide the users on our social media channels live through the city for one day. Through voting users were able to control the activities of the day. FC Bayern Munich Fans were asked to twitter a number with the hashtag #iamfcb. Lufthansa automatically provided via Twitter a visual of a football shirt with the twitter name and the number. With Blue Legends travellers can earn badges for having checked in at Lufthansa Lounges Lufthansa Flights. E.g.: Check-in at 5 tourist locations in Berlin and you will receive the „Ich bin ein Berliner“- Badge.
  8. 8. #inspiredby Special Social Media Campaign Klaus-Heidi Integrated Social Media Campaign #inspiredbythemoment Special Social Media Campaign Lufthansa’s Campaigns and Activities We captured the essence of “Nonstop You” by focusing on creating memorable experiences. We enriched our content with a sense of discovery and a passion for travel that would excite our audience. We interviewed 10 protagonist (5 crew members / 5 testimonials) and asked them how travel is inspiring their lives. Lufthansa challenged the Swedes: Show us you love Berlin as much as we do! Are you ready to change your name LEGALLY to Klaus-Heidi to win a new life there? A photo contest via Instagram where the community can vote for the best and most inspirational travel content. This campaign activated consumers to share their emotional moments with the community.
