  4. HIGHLIGHTS OF AIRBUS BRAND MONITORING AIRBUS BRAND Press coverage about new orders for Airbus and other positive news stories featuring the company resulted in favorable conversations online. A few of the news stories covered during the Spiral16 monitoring period: Philippines’ Carrier Cebu Pacific to Begin New flights in 2012 Cebu to lease up to 8 Airbus A330-300 aircraft to serve new markets.

Airbus Brand - Highlights

  5. OFFICIAL AIRBUS BRAND NOT INFLUENTIAL ONLINE AIRBUS BRAND The Airbus website and other official Airbus brand resources were not influential or “loud” online. Conversations about Airbus are happening online but the official brand is not the driver of these conversations. This trend was consistent across all of the Airbus topics monitored. News and Twitter are Influential for Airbus This is a favorable trend because conversations about the brand are occurring online about Airbus. Airbus Opportunity to Increase the “Official” Brand Visibility There are steps Airbus can take to increase the brand visibility online. These recommendations are outlined in the conclusion of the report. Airbus Brand - Highlights

  6. AIRBUS BRAND PERCEPTION VERY POSITIVE AIRBUS BRAND Favorable results about Airbus made up 75% of the general brand conversations. This is extremely high given the negative news coverage during the research period. Positive conversations about Airbus, despite a wave of negative press coverage, speaks to the prestige of the company and the brand in the public perception. In addition, the negative conversations about Airbus were low for the aircraft industry. Airbus Brand Sentiment

  7. AIRBUS POSITIVE CONVERSATIONS OUTWEIGH NEGATIVE AIRBUS BRAND At the peak of the negative news cycle for the A380 story, the overall activity online for the Airbus brand was still more positive than negative. The chart below that shows the ratio of positive to negative conversations about Airbus, during the first days after the A380 news story broke. Compare the Airbus positive activity to the negative Boeing brand activity on the next slide. Airbus vs Boeing Brand Sentiment

  8. COMPARE AIRBUS BRAND SENTIMENT TO BOEING AIRBUS BRAND In December 2011, news of the Boeing Wichita layoffs broke. During the negative news cycle, online conversations about Boeing were shown to be 98% negative. Compare the negative activity surrounding Boeing in December 2011 with the previous two slides about Airbus. Public perception of Boeing was impacted far more by negative media coverage, when compared to Airbus. Airbus vs Boeing Brand Sentiment Negative Boeing Activity During December 2011

  15. HIGHLIGHTS OF AIRBUS A330 MONITORING AIRBUS A330 Airbus A330 Research Returned the Highest Number of Positive Mentions for Airbus 2,843 total A few reasons for the high ratio of conversations surrounding the Airbus A330 are due to multiple news stories about new Airbus A330 orders in 2012, as well as overall positive online conversations about the A330.

  25. A350 NEUTRAL ACTIVITY DUE TO SERIOUS TOPICS NOT AIRBUS AIRBUS A350 Airbus A350 data contained a high level of neutral results. Unlike the neutral data for the A320, the neutral results for the Airbus A350 are related to the serious nature of the topics surrounding the A350 conversations. The A320 data reflected a lack of enthusiasm surrounding the aircraft. The results for the A350 were not neutral due to the Airbus brand but because conversations about subjects such as trade sanctions and trade disputes are neutral. Airbus A350 Sentiment

  27. OPPORTUNITIES FOR AIRBUS BASED ON DATA RESULTS AIRBUS Recommendations Think of the Internet as a crowded room with many people talking. At Spiral16, we help brands discover the online conversations that are the most influential or “loud” for companies and brands. After discovering the sources that are most influential, the Spiral16 analytics team makes recommendations on ways to utilize the data from our research for business purposes. The following slides contain the overview of the recommendations from our data team. These slides will be explained in greater detail during the post-report phone meeting. Recommendations from Spiral16

  28. AIRBUS BRAND TO BECOME THE ONLINE RESOURCE FOR INFORMATION AIRBUS Recommendations The Airbus website and other official Airbus brand resources were not influential or “loud” online. Conversations about Airbus are happening online but the official brand communication is not being heard above the noise of the Internet. Airbus has a significant opportunity to increase the brand visibility and brand conversations online. Airbus can become the center of the information for the company online by implementing some very simple changes, some of which we have outline in the next slides. Airbus Opportunity

  29. COMMUNICATE MORE USING VIDEO AND PICTURES ONLINE AIRBUS Recommendations Airbus currently has a rich library of video and photos on the website. But the website videos and images are not being shared online as frequently as they could be. Increase Use of “Web Friendly” Video - Video was a small portion of the online activity for Airbus overall but the video results ranked high for the brand. There are conversations already happening about Airbus aircraft in video form-- it makes sense for the Airbus company to join in. Make sure all videos for Airbus can be easily shared via YouTube. YouTube is a powerful platform for the aircraft industry and it is one of the fastest growing search engines. Mobile Video - Use more video in the social media communication about Airbus. Mobile apps such as SHOUTZ are easy to use via iPhone or Android phone. Users can instantly shoot video then share it online. Mobile video is an excellent way to share the excitement of a new plane taking off or to show the view from the cockpit of a A380. Airbus Opportunity

  30. COMMUNICATE MORE USING VIDEO AND PICTURES ONLINE AIRBUS Recommendations Promote the Airbus Planes on Instagram- Instagram is a popular mobile app that allows users to share beautiful pictures. Sharing beautiful pictures of flights as well as the chic design of the new Airbus jets via social media community Instagram.
