How United Airlines Elevated Its Content Game

As one of the most recognized and established global brands, United Airlines understands how effective content can be used to attract, engage, and convert audiences — when done correctly. As content consumption patterns become more complex, United is committed to elevating its content game to stay relevant among customers.

The Vision

  • Provide an immersive content experience that showcases United's areas of investment in service and experience.
  • Reshape United's perception among existing and new customers.

What Happened: The RebelMouse Platform

  • One Hub to Rule Them All: United revamped its online hub to combine evergreen travel guides, episodic videos, tentpole content, and user-generated content in one cohesive environment.

  • Tailored for a First-Class User Experience: United and RebelMouse built a 100% customized experience that features a unique site design and third-party integrations — including interactive media and feedback widgets — to keep both casual visitors and repeat customers engaged.
  • Built for Mobile: As content is increasingly consumed on mobile devices, RebelMouse's mobile-first platform enables the rich hub content — videos, interactive modules, and social feeds — to perform seamlessly across devices and platforms.

Brand Storytelling: A Human-Centric Approach

United Airlines' #HerArtHere contest illustrated just how effective human-based campaigns can be. The campaign called on female artists to submit their artwork to be used as designs on two of United's planes, among other perks for winners. It's a fantastic campaign because it doesn't just drive a brand marketing strategy for United, it also celebrates a cause that resonates for many: supporting women, and giving artists new opportunities to showcase their talents on a grander stage. Sharing values between a brand and an audience is powerful enough to transcend any revenue-focused strategy, and will quickly build sticky audiences where it matters most.

Google Made Major Changes to Its Formula for Page Speed. Here’s What to Do About It in 2022.

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2022.

In the spring of 2020, Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals would become the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results, known as the page experience update.

Since its rollout, developers have felt the impact of how their publishing platforms stack up against the new standard. Important decisions around the architecture of your site can now make or break your site's performance in the eyes of Google.

RebelMouse consistently outperforms major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics since its rollout and into 2022:

The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals.
