It is fair to say that Ryanair had/do have a very negative brand image amongst customers.
Kenny Jacobs (CMO) states that the objectives of Ryanair in 2014 is “to improve brand perception and loyalty as well as customer service”.
They aim to achieve this by “catching up fast on digital” and becoming a “digital leader in the aviation category”.
Ryanairs digital marketing strategy has seen a
significant change over recent months.
“Our primary focus this winter will be to significantly invest
in, and improve, the Ryanair.com website, our mobile
platform and our interaction with passengers
using social media” (O'Leary, 2013)
According to the Ryanair website (4/3/14) the purpose of rolling out this new digital strategy is to “make it easier for passengers to navigate..identify availability… and book Ryanairs great fares”
The new digital marketing strategy will include using a considerable amount of its marketing budgets on new media with a view to focusing on mobile media.

Means-End Supply Chain
Theory of Consumer Value
Value for a consumer is the consumers' evaluation of a consumer object in terms of which general benefit the consumer might get from consuming it
Therefore, it is suggested that the consumer experience may generate the following types of consumer value
The following consumer values must be considered in a companies digital strategy to create a positive emotional connection, relationships and loyalty
List of Consumer Values
Efficiency- convenience (time and energy expended)
Excellence- experience of quality is prime motivation
Status- consumer pursues success
Self esteem- satisfied with purchase
Play- enjoys consumption process
Aesthetics-reactive appreciation of experience
Ethics- feel morally correct with consumption choice
Spirituality- sacredness in consumption

Run Seasonal Competitions
- e.g. At Christmas-drawing competition for children aged 1-10, must be anything incorporating Ryanair with the Christmas spirit
Winner wins flights to
for themselves and family.
Create a link for the Ryanair App in the App store on the companies website for customers to download easily
Promote the App more on other social media platforms
Currently Ryanair has a reasonable online presence, there is however room for improvement.
The absence of a Facebook is a set back as it is a hugely valuable tool that can be used to create brand awareness and entice customers. As too is the absence of Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest.
Our recommendations ensure that the company has a more well rounded digital marketing strategy in the future
The Means-End Chain Model
Links consumers knowledge about product attributes with their knowledge about consequences and values.
They perceive most attributes
as a means to some end.
