Describe the objective of the promotion.
GOL Airlines might be the people's company in the air, but its far from being on the web. Our objective: raise GOL's popularity on Facebook as soon as possible.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
The Valentine’s Flight turned a customary holiday into an epic online event. Here’s how it worked: we divided the Valentine's Flight into several images with empty seats, and uploaded each image into GOL's Facebook page. The first users to the see the image and type the empty seat numbers, won a pair of return tickets to any of GOL's destinations.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
Being an airline company, GOL knows that a trip is the most romantic Valentine’s gift one can get. Therefore Valentine's Day was a perfect opportunity to bring consumers and the brand’s main product together.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
In less than 3 days GOL's Facebook page jumped from 12,300 fans to over 200,000, becoming No.1 in the airline category.
