Best Practices: Instagram marketing at American Airlines

1. Show your followers your expertise

What are the important information and facts about flying? Put your expertise out there and give your followers the info they might be interested in. American Airlines does this by giving their followers important facts about hygiene on their planes.

2. Introduce your employees

Followers want to know who works for you and how they work. Therefore, the easiest way is for employees to introduce themselves in Instagram Stories. Here, they can show who they are, how long they have been working at the airline, and what a work day looks like for them. This automatically creates trust among followers and customers.

3. Interactive quiz with your followers

Get your followers involved! The easiest way to do this is to prepare a quiz that they can participate in. For their quizzes, American Airlines doesn't ask knowledge-based questions, but instead asks everyday questions about followers' lives. Here, for example, followers can answer yes or no about whether they would move for a partner.
