MarryCaribbean.com Scores Big with China’s Affluent Travelers
A Division of Global Bridal Group: Caribbean Destination Weddings and Honeymoon Travel Site makes an indelible mark with China’s outbound tourists
MarryCaribbean.com, the premier website for information on weddings and honeymoons in the Caribbean (Division of Global Bridal Group), reports that in the past ninety days their public relations campaign in China has recorded over 350 articles and posts on social media platforms. The focus of this outreach is to bring the Caribbean and its wedding and honeymoon product to the new generation of affluent Chinese citizens, while targeting wealthy Chinese couples. This campaign is being carried out through a network of China’s travel opinion leaders and social media platforms.
Working in tandem with the Shanghai Travelers Club, MarryCaribbean.com had approximately 4.0 million page views on social media within a three month promotion. “As the only Caribbean travel web portal with visibility in China to promote romance, weddings and honeymoons to our islands, we are pleased and proud of the presence we have established and particularly on the social media platform. China is an ideal market for the Caribbean – their economy is strong and the country is strategically located for future expansion” said Jacqueline Johnson, CEO of MarryCaribbean.com. “We placed a special focus on Beijing” she continued, “because of their higher per capita income than most of the regions of China, easier access to visa application procedures and their residents seem more willing and able to visit foreign countries than people in the rest of the country”.
In a recent issue of China Elite Focus, the following is a synopsis of the Chinese Market:
It is with these projections in mind that the MarryCaribbean.com campaign also targeted the urban, affluent Chinese couples living in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing along with the richest second tier cities of Hangzhou, Ningbo, Chengdu and Chongqing.
The Social Media Marketing and PR campaign promotes the Marry Caribbean website and its advertisers as the leading wedding and honeymoon website customized for prospective Chinese visitors seeking information on Caribbean destinations for weddings and honeymoons. The campaign will use a network of influential Chinese travel bloggers, who will publish posts, articles, pictures and links to the Marry Caribbean website to increase awareness among affluent Chinese travelers.
