EDIT - This promotion ended August 31, 2009 as detailed on our Facebook page. Thanks for your support and we'll do another fun promotion for our Facebook fans soon!
I am tickled, I mean literally giddy about the promotional partnership we (CAK and AirTran) launched last week. It goes like this: sign up to become a CAK fan on Facebook and you'll get a $25 voucher for an upcoming AirTran Airways flight from our airport.
The timing couldn't be better. Typically, September is a really slow month in the airline biz so we wanted to pump things up a bit. The coupon idea came from our friends at KCI. They ran a similar promotion that got excellent results. So, we rang up our partners at AirTran and proposed a similar partnership here at CAK. Thankfully, they agreed to it!
We both help pay for the offer, which is what a partnership is all about. We both benefit too, which is what a great partnership is all about. Here are the results to date:
-2,000 new Facebook fans (primarily from the Cleveland and its burbs)-More than 200,000 email impressions-Lots and lots of coupon redemptions-Awesome story in the Cleveland Plain Dealer-Sweet mention in the USA Today-Dozens of Retweets-Tons of grateful travelers looking to save a little extra money on their next air trip
