AXSES, a Caribbean travel marketing company, has announced its First Facebook Sweepstake, offering a free Caribbean vacation to Barbados. Travelers that take advantage of the program have the opportunity to win a Barbados vacation for five nights and six days.

According to Kathy-Lynn Ward, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of AXSES, “We are running several Facebook ads targeted to different groups. We have learned a lot about advertising on Facebook with this and other initiatives, which translates into a real advantage for our hotel and tourism suppliers and their travel guests".
With Facebook analytics AXSES also collects information on the demographics and interests of their audience. This allows AXSES to tailor vacation packages and future Travel Sweepstake to Fans in the Facebook community.
Kathy-Lynn Ward hopes that more promotions such as the Barbados Vacation will encourage more people to become Fans of Barbados.org, the main AXSES marketing and bookings website for Barbados. More Fans, makes it easier to market to travellers that are sincerely interested in the products that the company is promoting.
