Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, June 4 2012

Tagga Media is pleased to announce a new partnership with Sunwing Vacations, a family-owned and managed integrated leisure tour operator and a leader in discount travel for the Canadian marketplace. Sunwing, which has become one of Canada’s fastest growing and most successful travel companies since it began operation in 2002, offers Canadian consumers accommodations and value-added holiday packages to popular vacation destinations in the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, USA, and Europe. Vacation packages include flights aboard the “high frills” Sunwing Airlines, Canada’s premier leisure, full service airline that offers an award winning Champagne Service at a low cost.

Sunwing will purchase the Tagga campaign platform to develop and deploy mobile marketing efforts so that they are truly cross-channel, leveraging the company’s traditional, digital, and social media marketing channels.

“We understand the power of providing our target audience with a mobile experience,” said Paul Kraemer, Director of Digital Marketing. “By integrating mobile connectivity into our marketing, our target audience can engage with Sunwing and receive and share valuable information whenever they want, with whomever they want. This is what consumers want: context and convenience,” Kraemer added.

As an example, Sunwing currently operates two loyalty programs, primarily on SMS. Anyone can opt-in to these programs by texting “Prize” or “Fly” to 223344. Standard message rates apply.

With Tagga, Sunwing is planning on enhancing both its mobile marketing tactics (e.g.: SMS, QR codes, mobile sites and mobile display advertising) as well as tightly integrating these features with both their social media outreach and the company’s numerous marketing vehicles.

“We are very pleased to add Sunwing to our client roster,” said Jean-Guy Faubert, CEO of Tagga Media Inc. “They are a top-notch Canadian brand and are very innovative thinkers when it comes to marketing. They are a “consumer-first” brand, meaning they really design their marketing initiatives around understanding the consumer experience. Mobile, social and marketing automation are essential tools to execute on that theme. We are glad they have chosen our platform to support that.”
