Today Hoteliers is looking for new ways to engage the Hotel Social Media Fans.
We see this process as going through a Hotel Content Funnel. It requires research, data, information, technology, proper resources, dedicated budgets, Social Task team, time, content and a strategy that ties this together with existing Hotel marketing strategies.

A world of options
For many travelers, picking where to go on their next trip can be just as exciting as getting there. Today’s travel shoppers are more attuned to the plethora of choices than ever.
Inundated by Social Media, they realize that there are nearly endless possibilities when it comes to choosing a destination and planning a trip.
The path to booking – a new journey
Today the path to booking is not as predictable as in been in the past. And one huge challenge today is to catch the customer’s attention.
Before the Internet and Social Media Hotel Marketing was somewhat a predictable art. Surveys, Focus Forums, and Guest Satisfaction Indexes gave Hotels in most cases the tools they needed to make proper decisions and adjustments.
A given Hotel Marketing campaign had up until 20 minutes to capture the consumer’s attention. Today the consumer is bombarded with information through a multitude of devices. And the attention time has shrunk dramatically.
Today Hotels only have 8 seconds to capture the consumer’s attention.
Leading factors impacting booking decisions
As travelers move through the Hotel Content funnel, they count on different resources for ideas and suggestions on where to go. But when it comes to making a final decision, there is critical information that plays an influential role for travel shoppers.
In The Ultimate Social Media Content Guide for Hotels, I took Hotels through some of the primary roadblocks with Content Creation.
With help of the data and research from SiteMinder’s Social Playbook this get tied into to a bigger picture.
