But as an example of a company/brand that most assuredly “gets it” when it comes to social media, is KLM, Royal Dutch Airlines. KLM is more dedicated than many other companies to use social media and social technologies to add relevancy and meaningfulness to the lives of its customers.
Nowadays, digital and social branding means that consumers are more critical towards too many overpromising ads. Modern consumers are digital dictators that expects companies to add meaningfulness to their lives as well.
And now KLM has set up a feature called “Meet & Seat”, which allows customers to see which passengers is on their flight that they might like to connect with. Facebook and LinkedIn users can now meet interesting passengers on their flight. Check the video below:
Where most companies are on a tactical level, chasing social channels just to reach people with their social ads, KLM is taking the strategic approach, taking social way beyond advertising.
It’s a fascinating concept and one that could lead to similar programs being adopted not just by other airlines but other industries–cruise lines, for example.
