A Couple of Chicks e-Marketing brings its unique concept of educating hospitality professionals to market tourism online to the Caribbean tourism and travel industry this Fall, 2008.
"Online Revealed has evolved out of our experiences in marketing travel and tourism," said Alicia Whalen, Co-Founder of A Couple of Chicks e-Marketing and Online Revealed. "We were on the industry side only a few years ago looking for the right resources and we have heard the tourism community echoing the same pain through our three years working with hotels, tourism bureaus and other travel businesses - the real story to successful marketing online!"
Tourism marketers must now more than ever rely on the Internet to reach their consumers. Even in tougher economic times, there continues to be rapid growth in consumers researching and buying travel online.
"With three successful Online Revealed Conferences in Canada behind us, we saw the potential to reach out to the Caribbean tourism community with a similar format for learning best practices in marketing to a worldwide audience online," says Patricia Brusha, Co-Founder of A Couple of Chicks, and Online Revealed. "The conference is unique as it brings real case studies and practical application workshops to teach attendees how to set up campaigns, how to measure success and return on investment - with content presented in a non-intimidating way."
Attendees of the first ever Online Revealed Caribbean Conference will hear straight talk about how to reach customers directly through tactics like search engine optimization, paid search advertising, online PR, social media marketing and more - in a fun, interactive and non-intimidating environment.
Content will include real case studies of how destinations have been successful in driving traffic to their websites and realizing revenues that are traceable back to online marketing initiatives, along with practical application workshops covering how to get started with website development, Web marketing, measuring online success, and more.
150 Caribbean travel industry professionals from destination marketing organizations, tourism operators, hoteliers, attractions, media and marketing agencies, programmers, designers and tourism suppliers are expected to attend to experience the unique format of keynote presentations, panel discussions and online marketing workshops.
