The Travel Strategist Introduces TweetAFlight™ Instant Sales Channel for Airlines

Innovative Solution Monetizes Social Media Followers, Turning Airline Tweets into E-Commerce Transactions

New York, New York, USA – (29 March 2012) – The Travel Strategist, a social media consulting firm for the airline, aerospace and travel industries, today announced the release of TweetAFlight™, a managed e-commerce solution developed by Steven Frischling that leverages an innovative social media strategy to monetize Twitter followers.  The TweetAFlight solution transforms the real-time reach of Twitter into a self contained, one-step, instant sales channel for airlines.

TweetAFlight leverages the power of Chirpify (www.chirpify.com) and PayPal (www.paypal.com) to transform Twitter from a broadcast social media platform into a transactional one by removing all frictions of a traditional payments or e-commerce system. Once registered, TweetAFlight users need only tweet the simple command “buy” to complete a transaction.

As an example, an airline tweets a TweetAFlight tweet “Last Minute Instant Deal – $99 r/t #NYC to #Miami this weekend! Reply “BUY” to buy! #travel #deal.”  An interested follower of the airline, or someone following the embedded hashtags, simply replies “BUY” to the TweetAFlight tweet and the seat is sold, the passenger data is transmitted to the airline ticket system, and the payment instantly processed via PayPal.

Airlines and travel companies interested in learning more about the TweetAFlight solution may email fly@thetravelstrategist.com, call +1(646)530-8327 or +44(0)7092 384045, tweet @flyingwithfish, click www.tweetaflight.com  or visit www.facebook.com/tweetaflight for additional information.
