[Video] KLM’s Social Seatmates: Marketing Opportunity?

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines have announced that starting in the new year passengers will be given the opportunity to choose who they are seated with on flights by using Facebook and Linkedin profiles. While the video by the Taiwanese group Next Media Animation ridicules the concept as a way to join the Mile High Club the program does pose some pretty interesting considerations for business.

Can it be used for targeted marketing? While the thought of being stuck on a flight alongside a salesmen hocking their wares is one right out of a Hollywood nightmare, a more diplomatic use of deliberately targeting high value prospects using subtle marketing techniques could have merit. Popular CRMs are already integrating social networks into their engines to provide sales and marketing additional research tools.

Seatmates could become a valuable sales tool in the near future especially as other airlines (Malaysia Airlines launched its MHbuddy service in February) roll out similar systems. If it did become widely available can you see your business using this for your marketing?

3 Ways of Thinking Outside the Online Video Commercial

thinkoutside

The traditional view of how to advertise on television (and subsequently through online video ) is the mini-story. Usually these are short pieces dealing with one subject in a superficial but psychologically attractive way. Sure, the story may have a dominating, but catchy, jingle and the narrative may be non-existent – but essentially that is what a commercial is to most people. However, online video offers some interesting alternatives that not only move away from this traditional mini-story concept but also allow you to build a dynamic and engaging community.
