1.659 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

As customers lose trust in traditional message oriented forms of marketing, it becomes more important what a brand does than what it says. As a new way to build brand preference, Branded Experiences are combining the traditional branding approach with the method of service design. Based on brand positioning and customer needs it designs and optimizes the customer-brand relationship by creating encounters and touchpoints with the company that are pleasant, useful, and beneficial for people. At the same time, these encounters are designed to bring the brand promise to life. This approach offers a modern and sustainable form of marketing and brand building.

  36. 36. 36 Case Brand Experience Airlines
 – Airlines strive to be brands, but mostly distinguish via design and communication, the experience they provide are more or less the same – Conducted an ethnographic study of 8 European airlines: experience journey, pain points, brand perception – Created service branding ideas for Lufthansa & easyJet
  37. 37. 37 Two very different brand positionings
 Bringing German reliability and precision into air-travel* *) from interviews and communication analysis Helping yo to enjoy your time away affordably*
  38. 38. 38 Insight and brand idea Creating value for the user The brand idea An air-trip is a complex process full of uncertainties. For most travelers, predictability and being in the know helps a lot. Bringing German reliability and precision into air-travel +
  39. 39. Opportunity to create value There is a trade-off between not wanting to wait too long at the airport and not wanting to miss your flight. This dilemma is a source of stress.
  40. 40. Idea To take away the feeling of insecurity, Lufthansa helps with the Travel Companion: An app that provides necessary information. It also shows how long it takes to airport with different modes of transport.
  41. 41. Opportunity to create value Settling in your seat is when you have finally made it after all the stop and go, and the journey is about to begin. This is a very sensitive moment.
  42. 42. Idea Lufthansa celebrates this with a new ritual, a very simple printed schedule of the services planned –  taking away uncertainty, as many people like to sleep, but do not want to miss food and drinks.
  43. 43. 43 Insight and brand idea Creating value for the user The brand idea Any air trip offers the opportunity to do exciting things, meet friends and enjoy your time away. Helping yo to enjoy your time away affordably +
  44. 44. Opportunity to create value People are often looking for getaways, and not necessarily need to travel to a certain destination. Also, it is more about activities and weather than a specific destination. This is why they are flexible with dates but have a fixed budget.
  45. 45. Idea easyJet provides the Trip Alert: Users define certain criteria, including a price point. When all criteria are matched, the user is notified about his ideal trip, providing the feeling of great value.
  46. 46. Opportunity to create value An air-flight is about the things you do at the destination. For private travelers this is meeting people and doing great things. Although planning is fun most find the time for it only in the plane.
  47. 47. Idea The easyJet Trip Planner finds friends at the destination through Facebook. It is also a bookmarking tool for activities, restaurants etc. at the destination. It increases the joy when looking forward to the trip.
  48. 48. Idea The easyJet Trip Planner works in offline mode, so people can finally plan the trip in the plane, matching people and activities and create an itinerary. This way, easyJet increases the enjoyment of the trip.
