There's no doubt the Internet has made a boom in our lives, but, the revolution of social media has far more impact. Thanks to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter we're able to see things we never thought we would, including distant touristic destinations. Since everything is going in step with technology, hospitality industry must not fall behind. Advertising via social media is an innovative and inevitable step in any marketing campaign.
Let's imagine a scenario where you just returned from an exotic vacation. You want all your friends to know how much fun you had, don't you? This is where hotels can benefit. You'll definitely tell your friends where you stayed, how was the hotel, what can you do there, and they'll most certainly check out if there's an online presentation. Good service is a half of your vacation. If your friends see a good review of a certain hotel coming from a reliable source, they will consider staying there.
A nice interior won't attract visitors all by itself. There are a few other factors that must be considered. First of all, visitors have become more demanding. Nowadays, almost no one would like to stay in a hotel where a bed and functional shower is all that's offered. This is the 21st century, after all! Visitors want a full treatment. Here is where a good promotional offer with lots of appealing features can step in and save the day. Offering these online coupons is a way of showing gratitude for liking their page on Facebook or double-tapping those Instagram pics.
Followers on social media aren't a meaningless group of people. For hotels, these people are their extended family, and we need to take care of our family members, don't we? Reaching through social platforms, and maintaining a friendly relationship where people are familiar with your latest news is something not everyone does but should do. In this way of communicating, hotels can get a much desirable feedback on their current situation or guidelines on what should be improved. Don't close that door; your customers are your greatest critic and support!
Spreading out horizons isn't some cliche; it's a mantra we all should embrace. The vast majority of hotels use only their websites to promote and get in touch with potential guests. Why should one Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or Instagram be left aside? These social media have a lot of causes, and one of them is to keep our communication easy and accessible. The next time someone asks you for your hotel's Instagram account to check pictures, you better have one! It would be foolish to ignore all the benefits of a social media account. Log in and start a strategy that can bring you thousands of followers and a nice, positive number at the end of the year.
