  19. 19. 30 September 2013 Gatwick and Social Photography Simpliflying Awards
  20. 20. Gatwick Social Media Firsts First airport in Europe to offer out of hours Twitter customer services support First airport in the world to use the blogging platform Tumblr First airport in the world to use the audio network Soundcloud First airport in Europe to use mobile barcodes First airport in the World to embrace social photography 2
  21. 21. Social photography - did you know that? Airports are the most popular location to take Instagram photos? There are over three million photos tagged #airport on Instagram? Research shows that Instagram posts get 18x as much as engagement as Facebook Facebook posts with images, albums or videos attached have 100%+ engagement 3
  22. 22. Gatwick on photo networks We created the first airport Instagram account in May 2011, when the network only had 10 million users (it now has 150 million) We also have a presence on Vine, and photo-network EyeEm, the only airport to do so We have the largest Instagram account in Europe with close to 3000 followers We are (October) recruiting our own team of mobile reporters from among Gatwick staff 4
  23. 23. Social photography - our objectives 1 - To link into existing passenger behaviour. People love taking pictures at airports and posting them to Instagram. We need to engage with them on these platforms 2 - To bring the airport to life. They say a picture says 1000 words. Often the best way to illustrate a piece of news or event is through an image 3 - To support our partners. Photo-sharing is an effective way to support our airlines and retailers 5
  24. 24. People want to share when they fly 6 There are 32.4k #gatwick images on Instagram
  25. 25. We’re encouraging this by reposting the best #gatwick images weekly 7
  26. 26. We work with guest editors and stage behind the scenes tours with influencers 8 We’ve brought the Instagramer group of super-fans for a behind the scenes runway tour. We’ve also had super-user Oliver Lang (200k+ followers) guest edit our feed)
  27. 27. We use photo-networks to “live report” events 9 Tweeting about an event for someone who isn’t at the airport means little. Showing them pictures of it, brings it to life We use Instagram as our primary channel when live reporting events such as the Summer kids’ activity or new route launches, linking our Instagram account with Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr
  28. 28. We run photo-competitions to promote our retail partners 10 We tactically use photo competitions as a way of supporting retailers - for example London News Company and Jamie’s Italian
  29. 29. In addition to photos, we work with mobile video networks - for instance Vine 11
  30. 30. Our Tumblr is one of only 60 travel sites featured by Tumblr itself Tumblr is a highly visual blogging platform - and with 100+ million sites, the most popular one in the world. Our Tumblr site is one of only 60 featured in the travel category, with the result that we have 9000 Tumblr followers. Tumblr is highly visual, and we combine images and text to illustrate different aspects of airport life. One recent example is a ‘what’s in the bag feature’ where we showcased what people were buying while waiting for their flights 12
  31. 31. From October - Gatwick mobile reporters In an airport first, we are recruiting our own team of Gatwick mobile reporters to visually document airport life. Around 10 Gatwick staff will receive Instagram training to include picture composition, identifying good shots and using photo networks effectively. They will then take photos while in their daily jobs, upload onto our feed, and show what is going on at Gatwick in real time! 13
  32. 32. Some results 1 - With almost 3000 followers, Gatwick has the largest airport Instagram feed in Europe, and the second largest worldwide 2 - Gatwick’s posts achieve a high level of engagement. In July and August, Gatwick had an average of 101 likes per post 3 - Over 32k+ Instagram posts have been tagged #gatwick by airport visitors and passengers. Another 4k have been tagged #gatwickairport 4 - Gatwick’s Instagram feed directly contributes to the airport’s high (78) Klout score. According to Klout, five of the ten most influential social media posts in early August came from Instagram 5 - Gatwick is one of the few airports to have a Vine account, and the only one to post on EyeEm 14
