Often times we see specials and packages continually repeated while searching for a hotel. If you’re getting tired of seeing the same promotions, so are your potential guests. So get creative with your offers and generate far more interest in your hotel – from both new and returning guests. Here are some ideas how you can do this:
Be “Something Different”
What can your hotel offer that others can’t? Work creatively with local businesses for the win-win, showcase amenities unique to your property, and offer the little extras that just may make the difference. All of these are sure to pique the interest of potential guests.
- Local Partnerships – Partnering up with a local business is a great way to not only attract guests, but to network too. This gives your guests a more personalized experience and helps you foster relationships within your community. For example, you could set up a personal shopping experience with a local boutique or provide vouchers for dinner at a local restaurant.
- In-House Amenities – Showcase your hotel amenities to help you stand out. If your property has on-site restaurants or bars, offer complimentary breakfast, or cocktail or dinner vouchers with a three-, or four-night stay. You could also offer your guests an opportunity to have a personalized itinerary crafted for them by one of your local staff members.
- Personal Touches – A little goes a long way. Perhaps a personalized itinerary crafted by a staff member who knows the area well may intrigue your guests. And don’t hesitate to create some urgency with limited-time-only deadlines on these niceties to encourage potential guests to choose you!
Marketing Your “Something Different”
Developing your “Something Different” promotions is a good start. Now you need to get the word out. Social Media Marketing is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to do this. But with a little more effort, an Email Marketing campaign is a targeted way to make sure you’re generating interest from both new and repeat guests. Pay-Per-Click Advertising also ensures that your special offers are right in front of potential guests looking for just what you offer. Vizergy can help you with it all.
