Turkish Airlines uses Periscope to live broadcast a flight

Key results

  • 25K viewers
  • 5K new followers
  • 290K Periscope likes

The opportunity

Turkish Airlines (@TurkishAirlines) wanted to tap into the curiosity that people have about flying and do something unique. With the increasing appeal of live broadcasting, Periscope and Twitter provided the perfect platform to create original content that demonstrated how the airline was at the cutting-edge of technology.

The strategy

With the help of the crew, @TurkishAirlines broadcast a live stream of a flight from Istanbul to New York. To make sure it got the necessary approvals, it followed aviation guidelines and was careful not to broadcast live in-flight video in the cockpit.

The use of Periscope during the flight provided a great opportunity for @TurkishAirlines to talk about its quality customer service offerings. The fact that it was live and without any “editing” meant that viewers could see all of this in action.

1.Build buzz with live Periscope broadcasts.

In relatively early days for brands on Periscope,@TurkishAirlines saw an opportunity to get ahead of its rivals and create the first live in-flight broadcast. This allowed it to reinforce its position as a leader in innovation.

2.Reach the right audiences.

@TurkishAirlines supported the broadcast with Promoted Tweets targeting frequent flyers and those interested in aviation, promoting some Tweets the night before to encourage users to tune in. It also Tweeted organically throughout the flight, to make sure its million-plus followers didn’t miss out.

3.Make it interactive to drive engagement.

To make the broadcast more engaging, @TurkishAirlinesanswered questions from viewers while crew members asked questions about aviation and rewarded correct answers. This ensured a two-way conversation between those tuning in at home and the people on the flight.

The success

Using Periscope and Twitter helped @TurkishAirlines reach more than 10,300 users and rack up more than 154,406 likes. Replays of the broadcast were viewed by an additional 14,967 users and generated a further 138,373 hearts. The Periscope story was picked up by many digital marketing and news aviation websites. The project reached a total audience of 4.5 million people. This helped @TurkishAirlines gain 5,000 new followers as well.

‘’The live broadcast process is really exciting…no interventions, no opportunity to cut a scene and replace it with another one, no soundtracks. We introduced a real operation, a real crew, and a real flight to the audience. It is not easy but it’s definitely a big step.’’ Elif Bora, Interactive Marketing Communication Specialist, Turkish Airlines

Nescafé Turkey stays top of mind with First View

Key results

  • 15%+ video view rate
  • 14.7K hashtag mentions
  • 8K+ leads

The opportunity

@Nescafe3u1arada knew that consumer passion was its best asset in reminding Turkish people why Nescafé 3in1 is their favorite coffee. The brand turned to Twitter to build on this passion and enhance its reach.

The strategy

In the run-up to its Twitter campaign, @Nescafe3u1arada ran TV, outdoor and digital ads that talked about “the most loved coffee brand in Turkey” but without naming Nescafé 3in1. This left consumers free to realize for themselves which brand came to mind.

@Nescafe3u1arada then used the hashtag #AklımdanGeçen (#TheOneOnMyMind) in Promoted Tweets that encouraged consumers to share their own Nescafé 3in1 moments. When @Nescafe3u1arada responded to these Tweets with Lead Generation Cards, consumers were able to share their email addresses with a single click to receive a surprise.

@Nescafe3u1arada used First View to ramp up conversation, which ensured that its videos appeared in Twitter’s most prominent advertising spot for 24 hours. The brand also ran #AklımdanGeçen as a Promoted Trend.

Steps to success

  1. Encourage conversation around your hashtag.

@Nescafe3u1arada inspired lively conversation by using a memorable hashtag. It invited consumers to share their stories, and using Promoted Tweets, targeted people by their interests and the @usernames they follow.

  1. Use momentum to build relationships.

@Nescafe3u1arada followed up directly with consumers who had joined the #AklımdanGeçen conversation, replying to each with a Lead Generation Card. @Nescafe3u1arada sent its new leads branded mugs and product.

  1. Take the conversation to a big audience.

@Nescafe3u1arada’s use of First View meant that, for 24 hours, when people in Turkey first visited the Twitter app or logged into, the top ad appearing in their timelines was a @Nescafe3u1arada video, and the top trend they saw was #AklımdanGeçen.

The success

@Nescafe3u1arada found that its Twitter campaign gave significant support to consumer perception of the brand’s superiority. 100% of social media conversations around the campaign were positive, and the brand exceeded its goals in terms of impressions, engagements, video views and leads. @Nescafe3u1arada took pride in the fact that its First View campaign was the first of its kind in Turkey, and the first for any Nestlé brand worldwide.

The very first implementation of Twitter’s First View tool is a small part of our journey to connect to our consumers. The results are very fantastic in all metrics, and above all, its outstanding performance supported the campaign across all digital platforms very well. Gülçin Şekerci (@sekercig), Nescafé Mixes Brand Manager, Nestlé Turkey
